Mr. Sublime Oblivion, a.k.a. Da Russophile, a.k.a. Anatoly has inquired to ask if adding my blog to his blogroll with make him as cool as Sean & I. (I deny being in Sean’s league of coolness.) The answer is a resounding “YES!” It will make you rock star cool if you add me to your blogroll. Maybe you cannot afford a pair of cowboy boots in this economy. Adding me to a blogroll is free! Also, if you take a look over to the right, you will see my blogroll. If you are on it, and do not add me to your blogroll, not only will you be destined for supreme uncoolness, you will make me a sad and bitter girl. And you don’t want me to be sad and bitter. Because I am also a writer. And sad and bitter writers tend to pose a danger to society and themselves. Or they become cult-like famous and draw readership away from more talented, emotionally stable writers, like yourselves. Or they are just profoundly annoying. Know what I mean?
Oh, and if you look and find you are not on my blogroll, let me know.
Also, while you are thinking about acknowledging me in your blogroll, you may also be wondering what else you can do to be cool. You can do what Lyndon at Scraps of Moscow did and refer to this blog in a post on your own. And we all know how cool Lyndon is!
If you have done all that and are still not content with your level of personal cool, … eh, you’re on your own after that. Sorry kids.

And for your thoughtfulness, a song. I had that crazy Lou Reed song in my head forever until I posted it, and then, magically, it wasn’t any longer. So from now on every time I get a song stuck in my head, I will post it, so I can move on with my life. I think that’s why people are constantly posting the Gazprom song. Gah! Just thinking about that has it in my head again! No, I won’t torture you with that. Or maybe I will, if you leave me off your blogroll. That could be my revenge! I trust you to do the right thing, however, so here is one I think you will actually enjoy:
