Sadie Hawkins Day

Which part of a newspaper do you normally read first? Sports? Lifestyle? Current Events?
For me, it’s always the comics page which I grew up calling the “funny papers.”

One of the most iconic comic strips of all time is Al Capp’s Li’l Abner. And I think it’s really cool that a holicay, Sadie Hawkins Day, was the result of a cartoon.

Yes, it’s outdated (Sadie Hawkins was introduced in 1937), but I’m all about empowering women. Check out how this holiday, where womens ask out men, came into being and was an annual event in Dogpatch. https://wimpygirl.com/sadie-hawkins-day

Eat Your Heart Out

A few years back I saw a magazine page with a model clad in platform shoes and bell bottom jeans. The advertising tag said, “Go for That Vintage Look!” I felt really old because that is exactly how I looked in high school.

If you can relate to having once had a closet full of “retro” clothes, take a trip with me down memory lane at: https://wimpygirl.com/eat-your-heart-out

…and try not to rub it in too much if you can still fit into your bell bottoms…please!

Frankenstein Friday

In a fun competition with friends to see who could create the best horror story, Mary Shelley (at age 18) came up with the idea for her timeless novel, Frankenstein. Since it was first published in 1816, the classic has never gone out of print.

Today is Frankenstein Friday, and to get ready for monster season, we celebrate Victor Frankenstein, his lonely creature and the incredible life of Mary Shelley.

Runner’s High

As far as I know, runner’s high is still legal in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico. It’s one of the biggest reasons I run and exercise.

Runner’s high is euphoric and makes me feel like I’ve got life figured out. I don’t. But it feels that wasy. Find out all about it at: https://wimpygirl.com/runners-high
