Ok, I'll admit it: Sometimes, I like to check my blog stats to see who has stopped by and whether there are any new faces out there. (I've Googled myself a few times too, just to see what the world is saying about me behind my back. Call it narcissism if you want, but I just like to know, OK? Don't judge me. Especially as you sit there picking your toes at your desk because you think no one is looking. Because believe me, they are.)
So anyway, the last 48 hours has brought a flood of hits (like, 25 or so a day -- I'm not all that popular, so 25 is a flood) from a bunch of IP addresses across the Russian Federation. And not all from the same city.
So hey there! If you're in Mother Russia, drop a comment so I know you're not all a bunch of crazy stalker-types, looking to steal my identity or anything, OK?
