I was doing my daily navel-gaze (i.e.: looking at my blog traffic) and noticed this:
It turns out at that people who work in high profile, high stress government departments surf silly websites on the job. They're just like us!
Actually, of the ISPs I can identify, several come from US government offices, be it a city government, state or - most often - federal level. Department of Transportation, Naval Intelligence, the Senate ... you name it, they've shown up here at some point. Pretty much all of those people come for the 50s Housewife Experiment. Read into that as you will.
Um, it's because it's the only part of your blog worth reading. Also, you shamelessly promote the hell out of it.
Of course, I think this kind of traffic is hilarious and awesome - so, please, mystery reader from the Department of Homeland Security, don't put me on the no-fly list for pointing you out. As an extra suck-up, in honour of you and other government readers, I'm posting this clip, from the LIFE's December 24, 1956 magazine (which you can gleefully read in its entirety here) of Mrs. Sally Luther, an elected member of the Minnesota House of Representatives:
Funny how we still ask women how they manage to work in government and juggle a home and family, but never question how men in government do it.
(Let it be known that I am no fan of Sarah Palin, but, seriously? Bah.)
Anyhoo - regardless of where you work or don't work - enjoy your break! Thanks for coming here!
