If My Husband Left Me, I’d Prefer That It Was For…

I recently heard someone say about the Angelina/Brad/Jennifer thing that it would especially hard for her to see her husband run off with such a beautiful woman.

The implication was that it would be harder than, for example, if he had left her for an average looking woman or an uglier woman. This made me think, would it really be better (or make me feel better) if my husband left me for a less attractive woman? Or an older woman?

Wouldn’t that be worse? Kind of like the Charles/Diana/Camilla love triangle. I always thought that situation was especially hard for Diana because Charles loved Camilla so much, not because she was more beautiful or younger, but because he and Camilla were (presumably) intellectually and spiritually connected in a way that was much more substantive and meaningful than with Diana.

So, I wondered, hypothetically, if your husband were to leave you, would you prefer that it was for:

1. A much more beautiful woman with similar career and/or intellect as you.

2. A much uglier woman with similar career and/or intellect as you.

3. A much younger woman with no real intellect.

4. A much older woman with a lot of money.

More About The Anonymous Me

When my friend Kate tagged me for another meme, I hesitated going through with it (sorry Kate, still love you!) for two reasons. The first is my tendency to share too much and go to dark places when asked to reveal things about myself (also famous last words in my last meme didn’t turn out so well) and second, well, I’m supposed to stay semi-anonymous in this blog and the more I write about the details of my life, the less anonymous I am.

BUT, I love Kate and she tagged me and let’s face it, I like talking about myself, so I decided to do it.

Here is it is:

All About Me

10 years ago: I was 27 and desperately alone. I’m talking ALONE. I had just moved to a new city and didn’t know anyone. I was starting to become friends with a few people from work. I was also starting to date some wrong guys (and I mean WRONG) and the possibility of finding and marrying my dream husband wasn’t even in my wildest imagination. Oh yeah, and my job was kicking my ass.

Animal and human chartities: the importance

I was having a discussion with one of my friends the other day, and she was telling me how her friends think that human charities are a lot more important than charities for animals. As you all know, I’m obsessed with animals and I’m anti animal cruelty (even though animal charities has nothing to do with cruelty), so I had to have my say on the topic.

We have the ability, as humans, to improve… to evolve into something better. For example, take technology; think how far our world has improved (in my opinion) because of the increase in humans inventing new, improved pieces of technology.

Animals do not have the ability to do what we do. However, this does not mean we should look down on them. This, in my opinion, means that because we are capable of working, earning money, etc. we should be helping out these animal — providing support and help to these animal charities. We waste money on things we do not need.

Tips for Beginning to RUN

Running is an awesome sport, and offers the body great exercise. Starting out can be somewhat difficult and uncomfortable for your body. It can take some time for running to feel comfortable and natural for you. The key to becoming a runner is to have patience, and take it slow, gradually increasing speed and distance.

Here are some basics to help you get started running:

1. Start out slow: Do not try to increase your weekly mileage or time by more than 5-10% at a time.

2. Intervals: Start out with a walk/run regimen. Try 5 minutes walking and 2 minutes running, then begin increasing the running and decreasing the amount of walking. Eventually you will be able to run without walking.
