West Midlands of England was where Sara Lee was born.  The date of her birth and her current age isn't known.  Born in a musical family, both of her parents were music teachers by profession, her sister played the Cello while her brother played the trombone.  Sara Lee's preferred instrument during her teenage years was the kettle drum (also called the Timpani) and the acoustic bass guitar before switching to the electric bass guitar.  A string of temporary short lived bands preceded her one year employment playing electric bass guitar for Robert Fripp (From King Crimson fame) as a member of his one album maximum rock group The League of Gentlemen (Not to be confused with the super-hero comic book series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and it's resulting comic book super-hero film) from 1980 to 1981. 

After playing bass guitar as a sessions musician for Robyn Hitchcock's 1982 album Groovy Decay, she joined the punk rock band Gang of Four for their albums Songs of the Free (Released in 1982) and Hard (Released in 1983) before leaving the group for a career as a sessions musician.

She was a sessions musician for the Thompson Twins and the B52's on their album Cosmic Thing.  They enjoyed her sessions musician contribution so much that she appeared in music videos for the B52's songs Love Shack and Roam.  From there, Sara Lee was a sessions musician for the Indigo Girls for seven years (Including their performances in the Lilith Fair) and Ani DiFranco from 1996 to 1997.  Ryuichi Sakamoto, Joan Osborne and Fiona Apple also used Sara Lee as a sessions musician on their albums before doing more sessions musician work for the B52's in 1999.  Sara Lee released her debut album on Ani DiFranco's private record label Righteous Babe in the year 2000.   She then did sessions musician work for Todd Rundgren before the Fifth Annual Independent Music Awards recruited Sara Lee for work as one of it's judges.  Sara Lee continues to record music and tour to support her music while doing more work as a sessions musician to this exact moment of time.

Ok, this is where it really gets confusing.  Tyler Dayspring aka Genesis is a Mutant Liberation Movement (White Anglo Saxon protestant men claiming to be victims of bigotry simply because they are born with superpowers) leader operating under the nickname Mister Tolliver.  He's also the biologic son of Nathan Summers aka Cable and possibly Neena Thurman aka Domino, the nephew of Rachel Summers aka Phoenix II,  the grandson of Scott Summers aka Cyclops and Jean Grey aka Phoenix, the grand-nephew of Alex Summers aka Havok, also the great-grandson of Major Christopher Summers aka Corsair and the late Katherine Anne Summers (Major Christopher Summers (after the death of Katherine Anne Summers) is the leader of the Interplanetary super-hero team the StarJammers).  Tyler Dayspring is fixated on murdering his father Nathan Summers to such an extent that he hires a female mutant shapshifter named Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle aka Copycat to impersonate Nathan Summers' girlfriend Neena Thurman aka Domino.  This is ruined when the real Domino shows up.  So when Vanessa Carlysle chokes and refuses to kill Nathan Summers and ends up joining X-Force as a super-hero, Wade Wilson was brought in to expose Vanessa Carlysle as a traitor, got her kicked off the X-Force Team and kill Nathan Summers along with his X-Force Team.  Even that failed. 
So a girl who first appeared as a Neena Thurman aka Domino impersonator in the comic book New Mutants #98 on February 1991 and as herself in the comic book X-Force #19 on February 1993 began a lucrative career as one of the greatest sworn arch-enemies in X-Men comic book history.  While Wade Wilson eventually sought redemption to become a super-hero, Vanessa Carlysle aka Copycat continues to be bad to the bone and is always trying to get Wade Wilson aka Deadpool to fall off the wagon and become evil again.  Hey, he ruined her efforts to seek redemption, so it's only fair that she should ruin his efforts to seek redemption as revenge.  Here we have Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle aka Copycat and Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (Before his character was disfigured beyond repair by third degree burn injuries of a never disclosed origin).   This scene is from the upcoming Marvel Comic Studios Summer 2016 super-hero film Deadpool.

 Ellie Phimister is an obscure X-Men comic book series character who goes by the colorful action costume codename of Negasonic Teenage Warhead.  The fictional character first appeared in the comic book New X-Men #115 on August 2001.  She was a student of Emma Frost (Sometimes an ally of the X-Men and other times the sworn enemy of the X-Men) who was born and raised in the fictional European all-mutant country of Genosha.  While taking lessons from Emma Frost, she predicted her country Genosha and all sixteen million of the country's population being wiped out by X-Men sworn arch-enemy Cassandra Nova (X-Men Administration Leader Professor Charles Xavier aka Professor X's fraternal twin sister in a complex indirect sort of manner) and her Wild Sentinels robots (For those who don't read comic books, Sentinels are unmanned drone robots who look like a human being in Iron Man gear who are colored purple and are four times the size of a normal human being (Trevor Fitzroy and Doctor Bolivar Trask (An anagram of Stark which means that he might be Tony Stark aka Iron Man's brother or uncle or some other relative. (Funny thing is that Peter Dinklage plays a possible Stark Family member named Doctor Bolivar Trask in the Marvel Comics Studios film X-Men:  Days of Future Past while also playing Tyrion Lannister on the television show Game of Thrones where his fictional character is always waging war against the Stark Family.  The poor guy can't ever seem to escape from the dreaded Stark Family)) also had control over the Sentinels robots at various points of time in Marvel Comic book history)).  Then Ellie Phimister suffered a stroke from having the prediction of the future (Which turned out to be true) and died right there on the spot.  On occasion, she would emerge from the dead as a hallucination, but never as a flesh and blood human being.  At one point of time, Ellie Phimister aka Nagasonic Teenage Warhead battled against Kittie Pryde aka Shadowcat and won the battle by an overwhelming landslide.
  Anyway, Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead is coming to the big screen Summer 2016 in the Marvel Comics Studios super-hero movie Deadpool.  Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead will be played by Brianna Hildebrand.  Here she is with Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool.

Ok, so this is where it gets complicated.  In the comic books, Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead was indirectly a member of the The Hellions because The Hellions are Emma Frost aka the White Queen's private army of children and teenage Mutants.  However, Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead is dressed in the official uniform for the New Mutants aka X-Force which is Nathan Summers aka Cable's (The biologic son of Jean Grey aka Phoenix and Scott Summer aka Cyclops) private army of children and teenage Mutants.  However, the comic book version of Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead was never affiliated with Nathan Grey aka Cable.  So the bottom line is that the movie version of Ellie Phimister aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead isn't a runaway from the Hellions, but rather a runaway from the New Mutants aka X-Force.  This is where it really gets confusing because the comic book version of the X-Men used to dress like this before switching uniform designs (Comic book version of Kitty Pryde aka Shadowcat still dresses like this).

Oh no, Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool just got run over by a car.  It's Ryan Reynold's fault.  He should've gotten off the road because the car driver almost killed him.

 Ed Skrein as Francis aka Ajax---The main villain in the Marvel Comics Studios film Deadpool (Ajax first appeared in the comic book Deadpool #14 on March 1998 (A completely different version of the same character first appeared in the Incredible Hulk #379 on March 1991))

There are lots of ways that you can use a knife.  You can use a knife to cut tomatoes.  You can use a tomato to cut hard boiled eggs.  It's better if a knife is sharp.  A dull knife is of no use to anybody.  Though it's better to use a knife with greatest of caution.  Using a knife the wrong way could hurt somebody.  And hurting somebody wouldn't be the right thing to do.  Of course, you could skip the knife altogether and use already prepared salad mix at the grocery store.  Or purchase a salad at a restaurant too instead.  There is a sense of hunger which only lunchtime could resolve.  And yes, a salad skipping the tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, lettuce, kale  among others is a good way to start. 
And as I'm lost in thought while it's late at night, here are some photos of  the following celebrities.
