My Google Alert-o-sphere

Unlike that guy, but also admittedly kind of like that guy, I have google alerts on me and my stuff so I can keep track of what Mr. and Mrs. Internet are saying about me.

Usually they work as expected, turning up things like, say, this very kind assessment of King Dork from a middle school teacher and Catcher Cult member, or this defense of children's literature.

But there are occasional false positives that can be just as fun, almost magical even. For instance, when someone lists one of my books as a favorite in his or her OK Cupid profile, google alerts me with links that amount to a fascinating window into a small-but-burgeoning sector of the alterna-dating world. I also get alerted to a lot of Christian blogs and sites because King Dork is google-ably equivalent to the phrase "D.O.R.K. (Daughter of the Risen King)."

Today, however, marks to my knowledge the first appearance of Frank Dandy's Portman Women's Boxer in my alert-o-sphere.

Thanks for the link, Frank. I just ordered a pair of Portmans for my wife.
