Searching my blog

Why is it that the provided Google search fails to pull up anything about stuff I know I've blogged about?

Here's a case where I'm fairly certain, but not positive. Does the following excerpt ring a bell (but don't answer if you are a FB friend - I was able to track this down on FB):

Here's what I came up with, for the Stages of Packing (analogous to the Stages of Grief):

1. Hyper-organization: "I'd better clean out and organize the band-aid collection before we move! Won't it be swell to have just the right band-aid for just the right occasion, right in the perfect spot?"

2. Workhorse: "Books go in the book box. Wrap the fragile things and put them neatly in a box, and label it 'Fragile.' "

3. Despair: "I filled 82 boxes with books, and now the only books that are left to pack are the odd-shaped ones from Aunt Egbert, which are fragile and heavy and I can't get rid of them because she'll know!"

4. Irritation: "WTF why do I have FOUR microwave blenders, anyway? Are they breeding in the kitchen cabinets again??"

4. Resignation: "#$%%$^(*@@%@ IT JUST SHOVE IT ALL IN BOXES, SHOVE SHOVE SHOVE, GET ME SOME MORE BOXES, SHOVE, SHOVE SHOVE. EFFICIENCY BE DAMNED, JUST GET ME SOME MORE BOXES. PACKING UP THE CONTENTS OF THE TRASH CAN, EASIER THAN THINKING ABOUT IT TOO DEEPLY."

5. Unpacking 1: "Who packed the toothbrushes in the bottom of the box full of gardening supplies that we'll never use again??"

6. Unpacking 2: "So...I wonder what's in all these boxes that have been sitting in the closet since we moved in three years ago."

#5 is familiar; I thought it was funny at the time.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm still scratching my head over the Google failure. Are there better alternatives for searching through my old blog posts? I've started resorting to flipping through old posts, which can get slow (and distracting).

Try a different search engine?

FWIW, I think it's something you've posted within the last few months.

Slower response, but yes, LJ-only and I remember seeing and commenting on this post.
