Time For A Party Game!


As I look around my house I see a LOT of Barbie's. There's the Barbie in her scuba suit and the Barbie who's a Vet. These Barbie's are outside on the swing-set and in the garden too. But, these dolls don't represent the way I think they should. If I were a Barbie I would be "Sunscreen Barbie". Follow the chart below to see which Barbie you would be.

"Modern Barbie"
(Use the chart to find which Barbie you are. Use the letter of your first name.)

A - C = Sunscreen Barbie
D - F = Is There Gluten In This? Barbie
G - I = Lactose Intolerate Barbie
J - L =  
Do These Jeans Make My Butt Look Fat? Barbie
M -O = No Carbs For Me Barbie
P - R = Mini Van Barbie
S - V = Have You Seen My Keys? Barbie
W - Z =  Migraine Barbie

Now, which Barbie are you? (If you want to tweak this a bit, go right ahead.)  Share on your blog with your lovely readers!  (I wonder which Barbie they are? )

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
