According to my sources, earlier this afternoon I received my 10,000th visitor, and days ago I finished the Norma Shearer collage above. I love old movies, but I can’t recall ever watching any with her. I will have to change that soon, but when I uploaded the image I decided I would discover a connection between it and the aforementioned blog viewer. As you can see, I thought of doing that many hours before I knew a thing about my 10,000 visitor.
My findings were shocking. See for yourself. Lettuce begin.
My 10,000 visitor is in Edmonton, Alberta, so I assume s/he is Canadian. Norma Shearer was born in Montreal, Quebec, fact that makes her Canadian.
My 10,000 visitor- let’s call him “Ed”, views giantess content through the Internet using Shaw Cable. J. R. Shaw is the executive chairman of Shaw Communications. Norma Shearer was in a film titled Upstage with Oscar Shaw: it’s about a woman in a circus act that gets a big head about her place in the world. And who has the biggest head in the world? A giantess!
I know. You just fell off your chair. But wait, there’s more.
The Edmonton, Yukon, & Pacific Railway Company operated from 1902 until 1929. Ms. Shearer got on a train to New York to try her luck as an actress. Not only that, but in one of her films, she was on a train as well. And she was born in the year 1902! Oh. My. God.
Edmonton’s tallest building is the Manulife Place, which was completed in 1983, the year Norma Shearer died. The building boasts 42 floors, and guess the release year of Shearer’s last film, Her Cardboard Lover. That’s right! 1942! Not only that, but 42 is the answer to everything!
Here, you look like you need this.
You must be strong, for there is more.
Ed’s Edmonton is known as “The Festival City”, as it plays host to several large festivals each year. One of those is the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. You can imagine the role Ms. Shearer played opposite Leslie Howard’s Romeo in 1936.
Edmontonians like big things, and I’m not only talking about imaginary women of shocking height, but also architectural structures. Edmonton is the home of a few “largest” places, such as the largest composting facility in the world, and the West Edmonton Mall, the largest in North America. And who is the largest person in the above collage? Norma Shearer!
Alright, I’m done. I do want to mention that I think it’s statistically interesting I know of at least a couple of giantess fans from Edmonton, and as far as I can tell, I have yet to receive a single giantess-related visit from anyone in my native country. I doubt I’m the only person among those particular millions of people that has these size-related fantasies, so I’ll continue to look for that tricolor in my blog stats.
