Bratz vs Barbie

I know it's a bit late, but it's a battle best articulated through cartoon. Oh, well, Babs. Sigh. America's favorite teenaged model doll didn't win, but they're both adorable. And, necessary. And, cute. (Yes, they are.) The Bratz are a nice companion ... (well, competition) to the Barbie Doll. I know who I was cheering for. I just wanna know: Can't we all just get along?

This is really late, but ... there was an "earthquake" in DC a little while ago. Only thing is, I didn't believe it. Why? Because I'm probably the only person in DC who didn't feel it. How?!? I'm tired of trying to figure that one out. I was at lunch, minding my own business when people started flooding onto the street. My building shut down. I was forced (not at gun point) to go home. Jam packed buses drove pass me. Miss the earthquake? Make up for it with some bus drama! So, no. I didn't believe it until I actually made it home a couple hours later and saw the action figure casualties. That's when I had a drink. A really stiff one. My nerves were already shot.

They're back, Sweetie Darlings!!!! Eddy, Patsy and the rest of the AbFab crew. All 5 Js have even reprised their roles!!! Jennifer Saunders (Edina) , Joanna Lumley (Patsy), Julia Sawalha (Saffy), June Whitfield (Mother) and Jane Horrocks (Bubble). 5Js. Didn't realize that, did you? I'm assuming you all know about Absolutely Fabulous, the British sitcom that's been around for nearly 20 years. And, if you don't --- shame on you! Burn your gay card or just send it to me so I can rip it up first and then burn it. Shame!!! It's been years since White Box, the last special. But, Jennifer Saunders has come up with three specials to celebrate twenty ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS years of Absolutely Fabulous!!!! Unfortunately, it won't get across the bloody pond until 2012. In the meanwhile, break open the Boli and the Stoli because everybody's favorite booze drinking, pill popping, drug taking and shopping English gals are back!!!! Because, there's always time for a spot of lunch and a little bit of shopping for gorgeous little things.

Still fabulous

Collector's Market: DC Universe Classics

The collector's market is a B-I-T-C-H. Admission? I'm full on into nostalgia. Then ... I'm a DC Fan Boy. Combine the two and you have? DC Universe Classics. Mattel rocks. It just does. My hallway book cases are LITTERED with DC action figures. I'm a collector. And, being a collector means that you have to be on top of things and ahead of the game. You pay more than you should. You learn the word: "PRE-ORDER." You have a credit card. You do a lot of purchasing. DC Universe puts out "waves" of action figures. Each figure within a wave comes with a piece of a bigger figure. (Like, Chemo, Apache Chief, Parallax, Trigon, The Monitor, etc.) When I saw the Giganta figure, I knew --- I wanted her. Having her meant I'd have to collect ALL of them in order to have her. Commander Steel - Upper & middle torso; Dr. fate - right arm; Mr. Terrific - right leg; Parademon - left arm; Vigilante - left leg; and --- the all too important -- Gentleman Ghost - head & lower torso (coochie). So, I found everybody, but --- Gentleman Ghost. Sound simple? It ain't. The Collectors Market determines that you go insane. (Well, fucking nutso.) It will remove ONE key component to make sure that you go bonkers. Us collectors (i.e. completionists) must have it all. And, I wanted Giganta. Really and trooooly. But, I couldn't find Gentleman Ghost. I wanted him as well because he was just --- cool. He came with Giganta's head and ... cooch. (Yes, I was waiting around for a woman's head and cooch. Hardy-har-har to all of us hard core gays.) Somehow, others figured this out. I had everybody but ... Gentleman Ghost. So, Gentleman Ghost (Gianta's head and cooch ... and a very tinnnnny Atom) became rare. Ebay. We used to be good friends, until ... people started price gouging. Well, I just refused to pay it. Ransom. Blackmail. Just plain RUDE. Prices fell anywhere between $75 and $150 for a head and cooch. (I didn't pay that!!!!)

But, I wanted her. Really and trooly. I have lied long enough.

In the end? I got weak. I fell in. There may have even been a couple of cocktails involved. But ... I gave in. And, thus follows the accompanying photos. It's me at my weakest. My most vulnerable. I'm also .. revealing. Sigh. Here it is: Giganta.

Pieces of a whole - incomplete. Rude.
Ebay? Foul betraying mistress!!! I can't take it!!! No more!!!
And SCREEEEAAAMMMMMM!But then ... I found a Gentleman Ghost.
From Singapore!!! (Overpriced. Long period shipping.)
Hearts and kisses.
Head and cooch.
Complete!!! Huzzah!!!!
Kick her ass, Wonder Woman. (Yes. That's a Tardis in the background.)
