What happens when the wasp woman calls?
Oh my, I'm a sucker for bad movies! I'm sure we all have our favourites, but here is one of mine.
The Wasp Woman: 1959
Janice Starlin was the face that sold a million cosmetics, but eighteen years on, her business is declining as she grows older. Then she meets the eccentric Dr. Eric Zinthrop who has a miracle solution that will reverse the effects of her ageing - an extract from a queen wasp's jelly.
Dr. Zinthrop may be mad, but Starlin is desperate enough to become a human guinea pig for his experiments. Initially the queen wasp jelly seems to work, but Starlin is impatient, and injects herself with too much jelly and turns into
a lusting queen wasp by night.
You can even buy this classic on DVD at Amazon.
(Ed say: Hold it right there!
This is just a cheap attempt to get these nice people to buy a trashy DVD!)
OK, I'll come clean... I got a very nice email a couple of days ago and now I'm a WaSP!

Good to have you on board, Andy, although to reply to Martin - you'd be surprised at how many WaSPs are Brits now: Me, Simon Willison, Dunstan Orchard, Drew McLellan and now Andy and also Dean Allen (only just found out he's a Lundener from Lunden Taahn). <chavspeak>So we've like proper invaded the hive, innit?!</chavspeak>
Oops, I meant Dean Edwards, not Dean Allen. My bad!

Do WaSPmen get to wear capes?
@ Sean Fraser: Errm, dunno... I only usually wear a cape on the weekend. Oooops, Fruedian slip!

Welcome aboard - I make that 7 British WaSPs now :)
I was always under the impression that DVD stood for "Digital Video Disc"... Oh, and congratulations. :)
Oops, sorry Rachel. My bad. Again.
Congratulations Mr M. Your nation is proud... and a wee bit envious. :)
