Sunday Funnies: Abbott and Costello Do Math

Sunday Funnies:  In honor of the back to school season, here’s Abbott and Costello giving us a great math lesson to remember. Enjoy!

And my much-delayed ROW80 goals:

After a stressful spring and summer filled with both good and bad things, I’m back writing and blogging, but I need to keep a balance.  Especially since my college classes start this week (although I won’t need Abbott and Costello’s math tips). So my goals are pretty basic:

  1. Write every day, six days a week.  Blog, novel, short story – doesn’t matter how much as long as I get started.  Because as long as I don’t get sidetracked by games, 15 minutes easily turns into an hour most days, right?
  2. Some sort of exercise every day, if only stretches.  And stretches are a must!

That’s it.  Too much pressure makes me shut down, and then I don’t get anything done, don’t talk to people, and we eat a lot of frozen pizza.  Doesn’t make for a happy me, or a happy hubby.

Don’t worry.  I’ll still be tweeting and commenting on blogs, but that seems to happen anyway without the added pressure of writing it down. Like I could stop blurting out comments anyway, right?

Look for ROW80 updates on Sundays with my Sunday Funnies, and whatever I posted mid-week will show up on the “previous post” link at the top.  And good luck to all the other ROW80’ers.  Cheers!

  1. I love Abbot & Costello! Watching them reminds me of being a kid in front of the TV on a rainy Saturday afternoon. 🙂
    Happy writing Jennifer.

      Hi, Lara. I thought that too – would also be a great clip for a substitute! But more than that, after showing it, I think I’d ask the kids to explain what was wrong. Older ones would get it, but it would be a good exercise for the younger set. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. These guys are the best. I always liked them better than Laurel & Hardy.
    Yay for frozen people. At least people aren’t starving to death. 😉

      Oh yeah, Abbott & Costello trump Laurel & Hardy any day. Hope you get all your Camp NaNo words this week!

  4. Ha! I love your blurting quip, Jennifer. Thanks for the link up!

    Best of luck with striking that balance. It’s a continual WIP for many of us, and a worthy one. Can’t wait to hear about it all as you move along. I have a strong feeling you’ll rock it. 😉

  5. Jennifer, you did have a stressful spring and summer. It takes a while for us to find our stride again after the loss of a loved one. Working through grief does take its toll and some time to work through. So glad that you haven’t given up and are continuing to move forward with your WIP. Keep up the great work Jen and have a great week! 🙂

    Hi, August & Karen. I wish there was an easy formula to find the balance of writing and the rest of life. But I do like thinking of it as a WIP. Here’s to keeping going!
