What happens when the wasp woman calls?

The Wasp Woman

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!)

Coming clean

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>

    @ Sean Fraser: Errm, dunno... I only usually wear a cape on the weekend. Oooops, Fruedian slip!
