How To Live With A Skinny Friend

So, your friend is Skinny. She drives you absolutely crazy. She worries about every little morsel that goes into her mouth. Let's face it, her world would end if her size two was just a bit snug for about thirty seconds.

Be patient with her. Empathize with her feelings. Recognize that she needs your help. Perhaps share a bottle of water with her; or even a piece of fruit. Perhaps you can suggest that the two of you take a walk; or better yet a jog. You'll be supporting a friend. And we all know that a friend in need..........

Living with Skinny friends is a skill. It requires work. You just never know when she will go off the deep end; but you need to be prepared. You need to get into her mind and ask what the heck is going on. You need to recognize that at that very moment it is all about her, and not you. Come to think of it, it is never about you, only about her. But that is okay, her self-esteem and self-worth are much worse than yours. Inside that perfect little body is the feeling of imperfection. Be proud of the fact that you are not her; but be kind at the same time.

So in conclusion, always remember this ......Skinny people are more screwed up than fat people. Hmmm............. Maybe tackling this obesity problem might not be such a good thing after all; then an even greater percentage of people would be screwed up.

Although there would be no live tour associated with Discovery, the band recorded the entire album in video form. The Discovery music videos would be the last time the "classic" late 1970s lineup would be seen together, as the violinist, Mik Kaminski, and the two cellists, Hugh McDowell and Melvyn Gale, were dismissed shortly thereafter .[citation needed] In 1980 Jeff Lynne was asked to write for the soundtrack of the musical film Xanadu, with the other half written by John Farrar and performed by the film's star Olivia Newton-John. The movie performed poorly at the box office, but the soundtrack did exceptionally well, eventually going double platinum. The album spawned hit singles from both Newton-John ("Magic," #1 in the United States, and "Suddenly" with Cliff Richard) and ELO ("I'm Alive", which went gold, "All Over the World" and "Don't Walk Away"). The title track, performed by both Newton-John and ELO, is ELO's only song to top the singles chart in the United Kingdom. Xanadu was turned into a surprising hit Broadway Musical that opened on 10 July 2007 at the Helen Hayes Theatre to uniformly good reviews and received 4 Tony Award nominations. The Electric Light Orchestra Story, Bev Bevan's memoirs from his early days and throughout his career with The Move and ELO, was also published in 1980.
