Dolly Snowlips' Hot Links to Cool sites

Even if you're drop dead gorgeous, it's fun to use your brain once in a while!

But don't just take my word for it - what about the famous actress Cate Blanchett? ( Did you see her starring in the movie "Elizabeth"? She was awesome. She was great in "Lord of the Rings" too.)

Cate says:
"Acting was always my second choice, as a kid I wanted to be an economist. The thrill of solving a mathematical equation - I rarely did it but I would literally jump from my seat in the middle of the class and scream when I'd got it right!"

So take a few minutes and look up some of these sites. By the way, you'll notice how chic and glamorous Cate looks - but can you see anybody else on this page who looks like her? Whaddya mean NO? Ok limp brains I'll give you some clues: yellow spotty coat, beret, lipstick....

We hope all these external links work correctly, but sometimes sites disappear or change without us knowing!

Of course you can always rely on links to pages on the MM site
