OMG! They've used ME for a Barbie model???

OK, so my hair is a much deeper fluoro pink, and the tatt. on my neck MUCH more discreet...and, yeah, ok, I do have a nose ring, but this is the first time in my whole life anyone has ever been able to call me a Barbie girl!. Damn!





I tried to wear nose rings, but it didn't do good so I quit.

I'm gonna take that as meaning YOU don't think I resemble a bull or a cow then?

I'm sorta sad though that you re-opened this thread: I mean I agree that everyone has the right to their opinions, but I was rather hurt that after i had said i had a couple of tats and that i did wear a nose ring, so many people thought it necessary to share all their thoughts about people with tattoos looking dirty, or defacing themselves, and stuff. And yeah, the bull and cow comments didn't do a whole lot for my self-esteem.

I even had a little cry at the time, I remember.

So I think i would have rather let this particular thread sleep!

Romany,

I do not care what other people do to THEIR bodies. If they like it and are not afraid of getting an infection when they have a tongue tattoo, that is up to them. (Since the tongue is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, you won't see me going through that pain.)
Other parts of the body do not have so much risk of infection.

My twelve year old wonderful granddaughter dyed part of her hair pink. She found it too much work to keep it up. lol

My only concern is the chemicals we put in and on our bodies. In perfume, in cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, deodorants, hair dye and bleach, body implants etc. My gastroenterologist once told me that anything you put on your skin is absorbed the same as if you ate it.

As for tattoos, I am surprised no one has mentioned any effects from putting foreign materials (inks and colors) into their bodies. There are less invasive temporary ones you can do and those you can change. Edit : I see health care costs were mentioned.

So no more crying, Romany. YOU know who YOU are. March to your own drummer! Besides, I am SURE nobody meant to make a comparison. It was a joke.

(And unless you had a terrific blow to your arm, get a bone density test. A broken arm is just what you need right now. Not.)

sorry about your arm. I think you are a doctor, right? Be thankful for your brain because I noticed that you are more intelligent than me. :)

Christne - good heavens no. Not a doctor - and as for intelligece...well no, not at all. I just have a peculiar brain which has always stored up useless bytes of informatuin, but seem to consider things like what day it is as completely un-noteworthy!

Hope - darlin' this is China! bone density tests? Even getting the x rays entailed me sqatting on the floor and trying to balance on my toes as there's no upright facilities at our local hospital. Let alone anyone who speaks English!

Romany, Never thought of that.

When do you get back to facilities?

Oh, Romany. I'm so sorry to hear of your injury. It's done wonders for your creative spelling project...( posted with love )

When you revived this thread in 2012,I posted this (above):

Same again, mate:Sheech, let it go, already!

I can’t resist adding my loop to this thread. A rambling tale, it is, too.

When I was 11—this was in 1963—I wanted a Barbie. Barbies were still fairly new, having been launched in 1959. It took me while to find out about them. Mom and I spent summer and winter breaks in Manhattan, where my grandparents lived. We went regularly to S. Klein's on the Square (a popular department store on 14th Street, where one, with diligence, could find odd lots, designers' samples, irregulars, and good bargains). She looked for things to get for her mother while I browsed in the toy and children's-book departments. I wanted a Barbie with a blonde bubble-cut. They were selling for, I dunno, $4? $6? But Mom didn't want to buy one, and I had no money of my own.

Years later, a friend whom I had helped with English gave me a limited-edition (1995) Butterfly Princess Barbie; he knew I was passionate about butterflies and had never had my own Barbie. I still have that, of course.

And I finally bought a vintage-1963 Barbie with a blonde bubble cut, on eBay. Barbies from that time with the original accessories and in the original packaging are valuable commodities. (We're talking about adult collectors, of course.) The one I bought is in good condition, but had no clothing or accessories, and no shoes. The box was long gone. I figured I'd locate appropriate shoes—the doll's feet are designed for high heels—and make some clothes. I later bought a Barbie-like doll with red hair. I have a thing about redheads, who show up frequently in my paintings. Everyone on Mom's side of the family is a redhead, as was Mom (I didn't inherit her striking coloring), but I didn't have a chance to show the new doll to her. I hope to dress that one too.

I would imagine that there are serious collectors, and those who collect Barbie variants . . . and we all know about the political implications of those tiny waists, ethnic/racial diversity, depiction of various disabilities, etc., eh?

I'd love to see a Ken with punk-colored hair and tattoos.

No one would ever, by the longest stretch of imagination, confuse with a Barbie. As for being compared to one, that ain't cricket.

Hi Parpar - great story.



Don't think AFB (Almostfreebird/Almostfreebyrd/Almo 1) is interested in cricket. Generally he/she seems to only enjoy insulting Romany (and occasionally the town she lives in) and entering non-sequitur comments into other people's topics.
