Comedy Corner #6

chubby20n-1-webWow.  We’re long overdue for a Comedy Corner.  As I prepare for a convention I’m speaking at this week, I am reminded that stress is everywhere.  Indeed, being stressed out is easy.  Laughing is hard sometimes because we have to take a moment to laugh.  We have to be intentional about it.  Laughing releases endorphins, “the feel good hormones,” which are essential to managing stress and great for fighting depression.  On that note, take a moment to laugh this week and enjoy these funny moments:

1.  Korean Babies Dancing

Have you seen these adorable toddlers?  I must have watched this seven times when I first saw it.

2.  Arsenio and Ray Romano Trade Places

So I was really devastated when I found out that The Arsenio Hall Show was cancelled.  I love that man and wish the networks gave his show a greater chance.  This is a clip from an episode a few months ago where Arsenio and Ray perform each others’ standup pieces.  Farewell, Arsenio and the Posse 2.0.

3.  “What’s My Line?” –Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (October 2, 1955)

Lucille Ball is one of my all-time favorite comediennes.  I just love I Love Lucy.  I just think these two are so hilarious together.

–Your Stylist, Jessica Gimeno

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), endometriosis, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
