So I love movies- and quote them all the time and ironically almost 90% of the events that take place in my life can be channeled through a movie.
Exhibit A: The Holiday– stressing about stress! She takes the words right out of my mouth- I am starting to see the signs of aging and this is why.
Amanda: I need to get out of town. You know, I think I need some peace and quiet… or whatever it is people go away for. You know what I really want to do? I want to eat carbs without wanting to kill myself. You know, I want to read a book! Not just a magazine, an actual book. For years I read this reviews, I buy the books but I never read them. Did you read that article in the New York Times last Sunday? Severe stress makes women age prematurely because stress causes the DNA in our cells to shrink until they can no longer replicate. So when we’re stressed we look haggard. This is just women not men.
Amanda: And remember when they used to say that single women over the age of 35 were more likely to get killed by a terrorist than to get married? Okay, that was horrible but now our generation is also not getting married and, bonus!, real terrorists actually became part of our lives. So the stress of it all shows up on our faces making us look haggard!
Now what do you have to say about that!?
