Exploiting My Hunger For Flattery

I noted a couple of entries down that I might link to people if they flattered me enough, so Amanda of Metamanda made that attempt. However, even this craven flattery would not have been enough if she had not noted that her Marathon Blog was a thinly disguised attempt to get people to donate toward her marathon run for the benefit of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She's promised to find people to cough up $3700 by 9/5, and she's got $350 so far. Well, I think that's a good enough reason to link. Well, that and the craven flattery. Plus, she said "If you link to me, I will be eternally grateful, where eternally is aleph-null years." Mmmmm... aleph-nullicious! So go on over and give her attention. And cash.

And Amanda, yes, I'll chip in. Let me raid Athena's college fund and get back to you. But I warn you -- you don't run the whole 26.2 miles, and I'm gonna complain loudly about not getting my money's worth. And we all know how whiny I can get.

Note to other people wanting links: The "craven flattery + worthy cause" avenue has now been filled! Please try other avenues. The "craven flattery + revealing photographs" avenue, however is wide open, as is the "craven flattery + cashier's checks" avenue. Your call.

Is the "craven flattery + shameless begging" avenue (or grungy backalley, if you will) open? Just checking...
