Jane, circa 1950

Dear Barbara,

You would have been me, if I'd been a teenager in the 1950's.



No wonder so many women with ADD are depressed.

Love,
Jane

P.S. The narrator is a real jerk about drumming your fingers, but you probably got it from your mom (5:35). Hmpf.
P.P.S. I think I fixed the code so that the video would stop auto-playing any time the page loads. Please let me know if it didn't work.

This is the funniest (and most depressing) video I have ever seen.

Helen was my first roommate in college. I hated her.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Helen has Parisian genes.

Have you seen this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9OViYhp5OE

It's similar, but the snarky modern commentary makes it go down a lot easier. These videos make me think I never would have survived if I had been born in an era when sarcasm didn't exist.

Polly - My first roommate in college was just like Helen too! She was Belgian, but her mother was French. I smell a conspiracy.

Rachel - I just spent an hour watching those videos. They're a lot better with the modern commentary.

I fucking hate Helen! I would have accidentally knocked some sort of sticky liquid on her perfect outfit.
