Mark Twain

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

I am a fan of Mark Twain's sense of humor. I recently attended a program where Warren Brown portrayed Mark Twain. It was wonderful. I felt like I was really seeing him in the flesh. From the time I arrived at the program to the time I left, he never broke out of his character.

Some of my favorite Mark Twain-isms are:

It's better to be popular than right.

Have a place for everything...and keep the thing somewhere else.

Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.

Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.

April 1...is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are the other 364.

Handling the Recession

Monday, October 19, 2009

I am finding it extremely difficult to handle this recession/depression. I lost my job 6 months ago because the owners sold the business. I have been job-hunting with little to no success ever since then.

I am lucky that my husband has a good job that offers us health insurance or we would be in even worse shape than we are.

One good thing, though. In the past, whenever I was under this kind of stressful situation, I would EAT!!!! I would also just give up on exercise as well. NOT THIS TIME! I am watching what I eat and I am walking at least 60 minutes daily. I will not give up this time around. It took me a long time to reach this point...but I know I am happier by far at this weight. I still remember all the discomfort when I carried 112.50 excess pounds on my body. I was afraid to go to movies because I wasn't sure if I would be able to fit in the seat. In fact, I would only go to movie theaters where the armrest can be raised. Now I don't even have to think about it anymore! Yippee!!!
