Portman in My Sights

I got my first-ever fifth reunion-related email from folks on my class committee. "It has been almost five years since our graduation from fair Harvard," it says "No doubt we have all been keeping busy determining and pursuing our life's work." My main pursuit has been a remorseless quest to become the most famous member of the class of 2003, a mission in which I've been stymied at every turn by Miss Natalie Portman. Now, it seemed to me that she'd kind of fallen off the peak of her fame, but IMDB lists three feature credits for 2007 forthcoming, so I guess I'm doomed.
