Jessica Cutler Likes Me, She Really Likes Me...Oh Wait, No, Apparently She Hates Me

I was wondering how anemic my readership has been during the holidays since I haven't been blogging that frequently, so I went to the site that tracks my stats. On a good day I get about 190 readers, tops. Imagine my surprise to see that on Dec. 24 I had 2,800 hits and the numbers have stayed in the thousands since then. Why all the attention? Because on Christmas Eve, Jessica Cutler took a break from making her parents proud by talking about doing blow and getting sued for her sexual indiscretions to make fun of my unassuming Christmas Eve post. I'm not quite sure why anyone would get so bent out of shape over me saying I have happy childhood memories and I'm content now, but Cutler's ranking it below an abortion (classy, classy, classy) was just the thing to drive people to the site.
So thank you Jessica. Best Christmas present ever. Shame I didn't see it earlier, because it totally would have made the Best Posts of '06 list.

It's a badge of honor. You should be proud that you've retained so many readers, even if they are the kind of people who would read Jessica Cutler.

Her blog hurts my eyes. Some people can pull off that "I'm a bitch/asshole and I'm happy about it" thing -- the Seinfeld crew, David Sedaris, Heather Armstrong (dooce) -- but this chick just makes me go ewwww.

Besides, your coke-eschewing ways have clearly left you with enough brain cells to write more than 1-2 lines per post.

I sent her the link. We had a good laugh about someone pressing their face against a window and blogging about how wonderful it made them feel. What drivel!

Ugh, that girl is such a train wreck. I seriously seriously cannot stand her. I don't usually use words like this, but I think of her and the only thing that comes to mind is "c*nt."

Congrats on all the new readers!Hopefully they'll stick around and see what real writing looks like.

"I think it's obvious that I don't blog about anything important."

Very, very obvious.

Hate bred from envy, BB. If not of your writing, then of the fact that you still have your soul.

I just tried opening that link from a cybercafe in Buenos Aires, and it closed down the Internets because it said it was a porn site. How apt.

I cannot believe that you would have the audacity to write about being fucking happy. What's the matter with you?? Don't you know that being a miserable bitch is way better?

I say the latter from personal experience. It rocks.

Jessica dubbed us "sexiest male bloggers" in Dec. of last year, but we did not receive the spike in traffic you did.

I am certain it did not have to do with her taste in men, as women naturally flock to us. There must have been a glitch with our site meter.

Well Phil, I would assume that with Cutler prefacing a link to my blog by saying that it was a girl doing something even she wouldn't do that I was at an unfair advantage for a traffic hike.
