Barbie Brigade Update

The response to this has been amazing - I am going to update the list but if I don't get you on there.......please, please, please send me an email or comment - I wanna make sure that all my Barbie friends get their proper mention!!

Just wanted to say first though that when I started blogging I was looking for Barbie (okay guys, I am being serious so you Barbie's in the back quit giggling....LOL) - I was looking for the perfect life, the happiness, the promise of all my dreams coming true, blah, blah, blah - well guess what ladies - basically life maced me in the face........rather than finding that I was Barbie I felt disfigured and dysfunctional because I couldn't be happy with my accomplishment - NO ONE understood what it was like to be trapped in fat/skinny perguatory (as I like to refer to it) - no one until I met all of you. It was through reading what you all sharing your trials and and pain........sharing just real life that i realized I really wasn't alone - I found Barbie - she did exist - the problem wasn't that Barbie was ficticious but rather that I wasn't looking in the right place for her! When I finally looked around the corner and realized that Colette made me bust a gut with some of her crazy red headed antics and swizzle with her new pannus obsession and weightbgone with her never ending encouragement.......then there was Jo with her sassy salsa moves that were proving to take her through life, mmal with her message of hope - the list goes on and on.........but suddenly I was surrounded by these incredible women that were REAL - hold mother of god - I was surrounded by real life Barbies and they were way better than the beheaded, crew cut Barbies that I played with as a child - LMAO!! Long story - short - I can't even begin to tell you all how much you mean to me.......we are good alone - strong and able but together we are freakin AWESOME - the rest of the world better watch out........that goes for lying dehydrated green beans and balding Ken dolls and rich, snotty biotches driving overpriced cars and shopping at Central Market - we are The Barbie Brigade and WE ARE TAKING OVER BABY!!!! WooHoo - (Barbie throws her fist in the air) Yeah!!!

So here is the roll so far - again, if I missed you please let me know - it is super important to me!!

Introducing the BARBIE BRIGADE - (the pink, panel wagon rolls out onto the stage and one by one Barbie's pile out......crap, someone just stepped on my leopard print heel - damn move over some Vampira and WW Barbie - what's with the cape - you're killing me here!!! Who the hell told Mother Hubbard to bring all those damn kids??? Salsa, quit dancing for a sec so everyone can see you!!)

WOOHOO loving all the Barbies! I'm making my personal Barbie list to post later (I think I may be Cybil Barbie LOL).

See how cool and popular you are. You've totally inspired so many of us. We may all be insane now too, but that's okay cuz we're all Barbies so screw anyone who tries to tell us otherwise! :)

Colette said...

OMG I can just see the van pulling up and all of us getting our hot ass's out of that van and WORKING IT!! *SNAPS HER FINGERS

OK now, I hope next week we don't have to come up with a "Trixie" personality...because honestly..I am a SUPER FREAK!!!


Love ya girls!!

We forgot Tina from Battle of the Bulges. I think she should be Beyonce Barbie because of her bootylicious post a while back and Roni should be Top Chef or Iron Chef Barbie because she is always creating such great recipes and sharing them.

I wanna be a Barbie...not sure which one or how to load a photo. Yikes!
