Just When Your Day Off Looks To Be A Total Loss  
Netflix comes to the rescue. It's been years since I've seen Keeping Track, one of Margot's lower-budget Canadian films from the mid-80s. This was one of the first of her films I saw as a kid other than Superman. Actually, I think it might have been the first. It's not the best writing, it's definitely not an Oscar winner of any sort, the print of the film used on the DVD is VHS-copy level, and they use far too much makeup on her at times, but she's hilarious, as always. My favorite scene in the film involves Claire being a bit body-shy (so not like only of her other characters). There's nothing in the world funnier than putting this woman in a film with a little action in it. *snickersnort* 

Oh, and a little LS trivia? Anyone know where I got Ella Lane's maiden name? I named Ella's mother after her character in Keeping Track, Claire Tremaine. :D

*snickersnort, pokes you*

By the way, that icon is a laugh-riot. Although I will refrain from making mean remarks along those lines about Diana in print. Her fand amongst my F-List would kill me.

off-topic, but I went to a Lush store for the first time today and thought of you and your love for that place. I can see why! I dropped 90 buckaroos just on bodywash! ^__^

Sorry it took so long to get back to this. I read it at the time you posted and laughed, then forgot to reply! :D

Oh, it's horribly easy to drop a hundred dollars in LUSH. When we went for Anissa's birthday, I had no money to spend. She wound up spending about forty bucks on me, anyway.

The Flying Fox bodywash is totally addictive. I buy it every time we go without fail.

What did you pick up? Do you remember?

I bought the flying fox bodywash- love it!

I also bought the lady godiva hard shampoo, and the white one that conditions, a couple of chunks of soap, a little bit of the purple sparkly jelly bodywash, and the henna and jasmine deep conditioner. GUH. sogood!

Huh, I really need to watch that! Now that I have it, of course. :D

If you just watch it for her and the banter, you'll love it. She and Sarrazin are pretty hilarious together.

It's not the best film, but I'm pretty sure it's better than Ms. Right.
