    Other book recommendations: It’s more fantasy than sci-fi, but I enjoyed The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. It’s been out for a while, but it’s a female/feminist-y retelling of the Arthurian legend. I’m also currently working my way through the His Dark Materials series (Golden Compass, etc.) by Phillip Pullman. Not a female author, but features a very awesome female protagonist.

    You could very well have already heard/read these, but just thought I’d throw them out there!

    I am anxious to try the cucumber scented cleaners. My daughter, Andrea, says she loves the products. I am hoping to win a bag of the cucumber scented cleaners so I can try them out, and then recommend them to my friends.

    Thanks you in advance.

    Going to adult ballet classes improved my posture a WHOLE LOT! And they were fun too. Just remember: ears in line with your shoulders, shoulders in line with your hips, and your weight over the balls of your feet, not settled back on your heels. Also, fill out the typical “C” posture on your lower back by imagining your belly button being pulled back as if with a thread through your lower back. :)

    Good movie pairs, mostly classics:

    Witness and Blade Runner – a double-dose of Harrison Ford kind of awesome

    Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s – best pair of Audrey Hepburn flicks

    The Haunting (1963) and The Spiral Staircase (1945) – two good b&w chillers

    Gaslight and Notorious – both films feature a gorgeous Ingrid Bergman in peril

    Okay, I’m so relieved that somebody else is fussed about their posture too. I’m off to check it out!
