The best and the greatest thanks for Just Another Girl, without whose help I would never gain these impressive results. THANK YOU! (And Jen, I'm sorry for my letter to you — I was in hurry while writing it. You deserve more attentive answer. Somebody in Russia adores you :-) )

Did I forget some character? Arnold's last name? You have interesting information? You have an idea about a new research? Wanna praise me? Review.
