Kim Cattrall fans congregate—here 

Every now and then, I pop into Blogflux’s generous MapStats service, which shows me where my last 100 visitors have come from. Today, my blog hits have doubled—nearly trebled, based on some days’ visits. I wondered why. In February, my strong hit rate was due to a few posts I made on the Jyllands-Posten publication of cartoons mocking the prophet Muhammed, but today, the hits were greater than that. Not long after, my personal acquaintance to Denise Vasi, who goes out with Russell Simmons, became a reason some people visited.
   The reason this time? Because I had written about Kim Cattrall and her advertisements for the Nissan Tiida, a topic which I explored again earlier today. The had many, many visitors curious to know about the commercials, probably hoping to catch a glimpse of them. Sorry folks, I don’t have them, though I have seen them in both Australia and .
   But what is strange is where these folks are coming from. First, here are the last 98 visitors to my blog on July 20.


Pretty standard, really, though having someone visit from Africa was a treat.
   Here are the last 100 folks on the site, virtually all searching for Kim Cattrall on July 21 (US Pacific time is used):


   Kim was hot, especially in Masquerade. She still is for her age. And this is actually very, very good for Kim’s ego. It shows she may be the biggest thing to come out of since Lewis Carroll. Draw from the above maps what you will, because I thought was popular everywhere, not just a single country as this indicates.
   We can assume that there are more people surfing for leisure Stateside, or that only Americans know of the advertisement’s ban (not likely, since I know about it), or hardly anyone outside the US really cares if an innuendo-laden commercial is on the internet or not (the one on YouTube, if anyone wonders, is not the one).
   I wish I had stuck some ads on this site now and earned a few bob off them.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
