My SIL (not a Barbie fan) posted a pic on FB: her just-turned-5 year old DD had hung her naked Barbie from the bed with a yo-yo string.
SIL asks, "Should I be concerned...or proud?!"

Oh mine had the lives of a soap opera star. Thrown off cliffs (I only had one Ken and they fought over him  >:D), buried in pyramids, trampled by horses, sealed up under floor boards, subject to sharp pendulums, or lost in chasms after earthquakes (I've always liked Poe) . . .

F was trying to decide what tattoo she wanted and where (note: F is a busty gal and has nursed 3 kids).  I piped up and said "Oh, F! You should get the titanic tattooed across your chest so we can watch it sink!"


My friend (also 'gifted' in the mammary area) was getting a dagger tattooed on her breast.  The artist mentioned something along the lines of "you know this may......distort.....later in life?"  To which she responded "Yep - by the time I'm a little old lady in the nursing home I'll have Excalibur"  Took him 20 minutes before he could continue the tattoo  ;D

That-was-excellent!

Mine too. I started with four Kens, but two lost their heads during various car wrecks or imprisonments (I forget the exact circumstances). The heads became the oracles when Barbie went questing. Ken #3 got covered in green puff paint during a tribal sacrifice, and when I couldn't get it off, he became perpetually infected with leprosy.

Ken #4 spent a lot of time in cages or bandages or chains. Barbie was always rescuing him.

Haha it sounds like the Ehellions should meet up with the people at Burning Man who run the Barbie Death Camp :) That's always one of my favorite places to drop by when I'm there.

And pleasures few,
And holed the ship,
And drowned the crew,
But o! But o!
How very blue
The sea is!

My grandfather died in December and my grandmother died soon after.

My family was in charge of the funeral arrangements, etc.

We got a 10% discount from the place where we bought the casket because we were repeat customers.

For some reason this struck us all as hilarious.

Also, my grandfather died in SE Virginia and was to be buried in Maryland. To save the $600+ on the body transportation fee, my uncle got a permit to transport the body in his van.

Cue many jokes about sitting grandpa up in the front seat to be able to go in the HOV, or how great it would be if uncle were pulled over and the cop asked him what was in the back. "My father." And, of course, much quoting of the Little Miss Sunshine movie. "Where is your grandfather?" "In the trunk of the car."

Don't get us wrong, we were devastated with grandpa died, but we were rolling all day about that.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at a pet shop. They carried rabbits, and an employee was helping a man who appeared to be developmentally disabled hold and pet one of them. All I could think of was, "Lenny!!".
I guess I must be too much of a fan of that book.

Is this the "Tell me about the rabbits, George"? book

Yup. And the guy was really into petting the rabbit, just like Lenny was. But in a good way.

When my grandfather died, my parents and I stopped at a coffee shop on our way to the funeral home. We were behind a conversion van which made a turn without signaling. Cue me in the back seat croaking "If I were a cop I'd give him [the van driver] a ticket!" (one of grandpa's pet phrases while driving). I still can't believe I said that.

As I mentioned in the Hugs folder, a friend of mine (J) took his own life over the holiday weekend. The friend was very openly gay (this is relevant).

When my best friend (who is one of the executors of estate for our friend) told a mutual friend about J, and told him that J wanted to cremated, our friend made a comment that I'm sure a few others didn't have the guts to say, but were certainly thinking... That J was going out in death, the way he lived his life... flaming.

We both laughed about it, apologized for laughing, and then laughed some more.
