Although choosing Five Blondes as our blog title was a fairly quick and painless decision, there was definitely a lot of thought put into it. Thought, research, and Googling. If we tell someone about our blog and they Google us, what comes up? Are there any other blogs or websites with like names? Could the results be embarrassing?
After a month (and not-too-many posts), the results are in.
We are first! Not surprising. We are also second, third, fourth…of the two pages of results, only the last two links are not us. The last link is, unfortunately, a porn film titled “5 blondes”. Seeing that makes me very happy that we didn’t use “5 Blondes” as our blog name (it was in the running).
Google: “five blondes”
We are…third. Second link is the aforementioned adult film’s listing on IMDB (here titled “Five Blondes” – but I know that’s wrong, I saw the cover of the DVD). The film apparently sucks – that may be the wrong word to use – let’s go with ‘is not very good.’ The film is apparently not very good, judging by the 3.5/10 rating.
The first link is a blonde joke on someone’s Geocities page that was added over seven years ago. Nothing dies on the internet! The webmaster’s page hasn’t been updated in over a year, as far as I can tell. I haven’t visited a Geocities page in years.
What about those inferior links under us? Well, they’re mostly blonde jokes, as well as a few links about that, um, film. So, in honor of those blonde jokes and in good humour (we like to laugh!), I am adding a blonde joke to this post.
In fact, I’ve found a blonde joke titled “The Blonde’s Sister.”
A blonde goes into work one morning crying her eyes out. Her boss, concerned about all his employees’ well being, asked sympathetically, “What’s the matter?”
To which the blonde replies…..”Early this morning I got a phone call saying that my mother had passed away.”
The boss, feeling very sorry at this point, explains to the young girl, “Why don’t you go home for the day…..we aren’t terribly busy. Just take the day off to relax and rest.”
The blonde very calmly states……”No, I’d be better off here. I need to keep my mind off it and I have the best chance of doing that here.”
The boss agrees and allows the blonde to work as usual, saying “If you need anything, just let me know.”
Well, a few hours pass and the boss decides to check on the blonde. He looks out over his office and sees the blonde hysterically crying!! He rushes out to her, asking, “Are you gonna be ok??”
“No,” exclaims the blonde. “I just got a call from my sister. She told me that HER mom died too!!”
Umm…love you, Mom! Link love you too!
A final note: If you google all of our names at once (“erica micaela katelyn leah lauren“), we are first…of 48,000!
