|Diary of an Older Fan Girl|
This is going to sound silly, but my birthday is this month (37... GLARE) and I just received an early present in the mail. Part of an old fashion dollhouse set. I always wanted The Barbie Dreamhouse when I was a girl, but never got it. The good thing about growing older is that your parents can't say "no" anymore... except of course for eight years ago when I wanted the Godzilla drapes and my mother, may she rest in peace, said "Have you lost your mind???". We all know the answer to that one. Anyway, I put new carpeting on the floors of this thing and moved two of my 47 fashion dolls right in. I only have a few pieces of furniture for it, but that's okay because there isn't much room to fit everything. Must be a studio loft in Manhattan. I hope they can afford the rent on his Scuba Diver salary. Ha, ha, ha.
Misty ("She Who Walks Through Shadows on Misted Paws") has only stepped into the thing once and knocked a miniature bottle of bourbon (hey, my dolls have it all) over. I'm hoping she won't roll the objects across the room. We'll see.
So, that took up a few hours once I got home from work. If I can get the pictures link to work, I'll show it off.
Now.... on to seriously bidding on those pirate Weebles...
