For those of you who have not yet given up on your New Year’s Resolution to get in shape, today I offer a little inspiration and advice. The Antics of Arabella was brought my attention by Rebecca Onion’s blog on Slate: The Vault. This blog offers up some delightful memento of history, such as a letter to Santa written by Henry Ford’s son or a letter to the US Department of Labor by a young Beatle’s fan protesting the group’s trouble entering the US. It’s a delightful blog and well worth a visit from anyone interested in the quirkier side of history. Personally this 1920’s comic strip with its combination of humor, exercise and voyeurism is one of my favorites. Cheeky jazz-age chorus girls should lead all fitness programs as far as I’m concerned.
