Work It, Babe

"I'm selfish, impatient, & a little insecure. I make mistakes. I'm out of control & at times I'm hard to handle. but if you cant handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best!"
~Marilyn Monroe

Damn straight. If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch!

By the way, my cheeks are annoyingly chubby, but weight is falling off and I'm soon going to be my old knockout babe self again. Just need a lot more playtime on the Wii Fit, sweating to hula hoops and step exercises. Oh, and boxing, too.

Hi Sophia.

Yes, work it! Especially if you are feeling happy in that work. I see the smile on your face.

I am barely succeeding in working it myself lately. . . feels like trying to work it through mud. But the mud is clearing and it is getting a little easier.

Thanks for all of your sharing. It helps me to realize what we all have in common.

The quotation interests me because according to the perceptions of the world, Judy Garland might have been described similarly. Yet I don’t think she and Marilyn Monroe were on the same plane, nor do I think their eventual states of depression were similar.

My perception, and I could be proven wrong, is that Judy was always justified in her tirades, which would have seen a quick end had she received the appropriate response.

Judy was a fireball at times, but she had a peculiar righteousness behind her, so that for me it has been a little pleasing to see her angry. Something is wrong in the situation, so there is an objective cause for her anger. Her other choice was to be completely meek and take it all on the chin, like Gail Russell did. Neither option had any effect upon humanity.

I also don’t think that Marilyn Monroe was “all that.” Her “best” performances hardly seem worth my review, except to see the extremes of body-identification and the human temptress. Judy was not body-identified, nor was she a temptress. Her mind was notably devoid of the forms of allurement that normally attract the males, and so they hated her.
