Hot Dish. Oma. Oh my God.Posted: January 3, 2010
Yesterday I checked in on the administrative page of this blog. For those of you who don’t have the addiction of doing one of sites, the software and companies involved usually provide a lot of stats and information to blog owners. One of the pieces of information available to me on this blog is how people find their way to the blog.
Yesterday, one of the referrals came from a search engine. The internet address was long and was thus abreviated. I put my cursor over it and could then see that the person had searched for nude pictures of Oma.
This struck me funny. I knew that I had people who read my foolishness on a regular basis. I knew that some people had shortened the name I write under, Omawarisan, to Oma in email exchanges and comments on the blog. What I didn’t know is why anyone would want nude photos of me.
The other thing I didn’t know was that apparently some people call their grandmother Oma. I guess it is a German and midwestern US thing. I didn’t get the memo on that. I also found out this week that there is something in the midwest called Hot Dish. Hot Dish is a casserole kind of thing.
Apparently some people think that their grandma is a hot dish, the non casserole kind of hot dish. When I clicked on the link to figure out what the whole unclothed Oma search thing was about, I learned that they apparently had been searching for pictures of grandmothers.
I know there are a lot of really odd people in the world. I know there are people who have stumbled onto this blog while searching for nude pictures of Flo, The Progressive Insurance Woman, and Erin E-surance (I don’t have any, thanks for asking.). Now I know there is a new level of odd in the world that I never knew of.
Just for the record, I am fully dressed as I write this. I’m even wearing shoes. I’m not anyone’s grandmother, I don’t have that kind of plumbing. Omawarisan and your Oma are two different people. Some people could be both an Omawarisan and an Oma. I’m not one of those people.
I’m glad to know no one was searching for pictures of me without clothes. I am kind of freaked out that they were looking for the other kind of Oma that way.
If any of you from the midwest have any other terms I need to know about, I’d appreciate you letting me know now. Oma and Hot Dish have proven disturbing to me and I don’t want any more surprises.
