The Many Faces of Erachet

Sometime on Friday or Motzei Shabbos, this blog reached 10,000 hits. Yay! But for a while, it was stuck on 9999, and while that's a very cool looking number, it just isn't the same as 10,000! So that's when I decided it needed a little pursuading. So I ran to the nearest phonebooth, slipped inside, spun around, and re-emerged as...

Rockachet!

That's right - shy, quiet blogger by day, rocker by night!

(This all happened in an alternate universe where it wasn't the nine days)

With my electric guitar, I jammed this song (the tune is whatever you'd like it to be :P it's modern art, ya know):

So many blogs out there
They have so many hits
I want to join their ranks
But my blog's in the pits
It's just not big enough
So what am I to do?
I guess I'll count smaller
And then my numbers grew!

Here I am
Feelin' fine
Stuck on nine nine ninety-nine
Almost there
It's not fair
Listen to my hit-count prayer!
Just one more
I'm so poor
Send one hit-count through my door!
What a show
I'm aglow
Let my hit-count grow and grow!

I wait all night and day
Refresh Sitemeter's page
For that one hit to come
'For I die of old age
But no one's stoppin' by
So what am I to do?
I guess I'll daven hard
I'm a JBloggin' Jew!

Here I am
Feelin' fine
Stuck on nine nine ninety-nine
Almost there
It's not fair
Listen to my hit-count prayer!
Just one more
I'm so poor
Send one hit-count through my door!
What a show
I'm aglow
Let my hit-count grow and grow!

I want ten thousand hits
What's wrong with my request?
Is it too much to ask?
I'm blogging at my best
I've been so good so far
No controversy here
So nine nine ninety-nine
You've naught at all to fear!

Just one more!
One more hit!
One more visitor my way!
Hachnasat
Orchim is
All I'm asking for today!
I'll give you
All my thanks
When I'm climbin' in the ranks!
Then I'll be
More than fine
Free from nine nine ninety-nine!
