Morjes!

Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

2009 Stats

OK, I know I said we were done with 2009: The Year in Review posts, but here's one more. How about I tuck it away in a Saturday post so it's less noticeable? I forgot I wanted to do this until I saw it over at my friends' blog (Heissatopia). So I'm going to completely and absolutely steal their idea and run some interesting stats for My Adventures in Tucson/Limbo/Ithaca (but probably not as in-depth because I'm not as savvy as Andrew).

Thank you for indulging me. And thank you, Google Analytics! Also thanks to Andrew and I hope he doesn't mind that I am attempting to duplicate, however poorly, his superior web ninja skillz.
