: I don't usually go around recommending other blogs. It's not that I am trying to cut down on the competition, although that's not such a bad idea, now that I think of it, but because of the nature of this blog: essays don't really require links, at least I don't think so. If a piece is good then it can stand by itself; if it isn't then no amount of pointing to someone else's blog will help it. Now that I have given all the usual caveats, and having thus established that I am a passive aggressive snot filled to the brim with false modesty, I think that Samantha
is a knock down funny hoot and a half and I'm pretty sure you will, too. So get you over there posthaste and enjoy.
