Wait - I found a photo on an internal site for my company - let's see if this works.... Yea! This was taken at my Bachlorette party the night before I got married in March of 2001 (and taken before too many cocktails, I might add, although there is a rose in my cheeks!). My hair is much shorter now, but you get the idea.... Anne Francis

Two things: First, clarification. Until I lost it in a dreadful move from Chicago, I had Throw Your Arms Around Me on a CD, which I bought in Rome and must have been a bootleg. It was mislabeled "Flow Your Arms Around Me." So, although I don't imagine that the Victoria Secret people had those kind of resources when I heard it. It was definitely Neil -- I'm a woman of few skills, but I have a finely-tuned Finn ear! Second, revelation. Just heard Driving Me Mad at Caribou Coffee. --Heather

Heidi, please don't feel a failure. Some women may work up to the day the baby is born, but I'm sure not many. There are very good reasons that we stop working some time before the baby is due - it's much better for mother and baby. Childbirth was a much more risky business in our grandparents' day, which is why things have changed.
