Natasha,

Arlene Dinosaur, Isadore Unlearn, Sour Adrenaline, Redial Unreason, and Nonreal Residua are all anagrams for Laurie Anderson. "O Anus Perm" was, perhaps, her biggest hit.

Now, which career did Natasha Readings pick at the job fair?

Paris sounds divoon. I have fond memories of my nights at The Lido when I was in charge of re-glittering Josephine Baker's bananas. Jerry Lewis was still in diapers and every Frenchman spoke reverently of "ze Laurel" and "ze Hardy". The Eiffel Tower was still made of marzipan, and nights were spent "Yanky kissing" Resistance fighters traded Picassos for chocolate bars which they made into souffles using Zippo lighters. Merde, life was cheap then!

Love,

Anya
