Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Kitten Natividad, buxom star of the Russ Meyer's films Up!, and Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens, ditched work at IBM as a key punch operator in 1969 to start stripping.

"I discovered that the sister of one of my neighbors made a living as a stripper and earned $300 a week which was twice as much as I made," she writes here. She bagged the IBM gig after a year's course at trade school.

Other highlight's on Kitten's CV include winning Miss Nude Universe in 1973, and stripping at Sean Penn's stag night in September 1985.
