Bright Lights, Big City!

Ever since i was a little girl i loved when my mother use to take me with her into Manhattan. Then when i got old enough to travel on my own i’d take the train and go all of the time.

I’ve always been so carefree. I just loved everything about Manhattan. I always said when i could i would move there because Manhattan says everything about me!

On the 20th of April of this year i had to take care of some business on 34th st and i hadn’t been down there in that part for a while so when i finished what i had to do i walked all over and around, and spent hours enjoying the scenery. I ate around 42nd street then visited some stores, went and bought a DVD, then went on home.

A beautiful place somewhere in Manhattan will be my home one day.


I Love Barbie (She Still Has It Going On)

You know, aside from certain other matters i had a really great childhood. And one of my fondest memories was playing with my Barbie dolls.

I played with them from the age of five or six up until i was twelve then i grew out of it.

I had a whole lot of accessories that went along with Barbie such as her clothes, town house, trailer, pool, cars, and so on. I had nothing but pure fun!

I didn’t ever think the day would come when i was no longer interested in my Barbie Dolls anymore. However, normally a person matures as i did.

Much later on though, during my twenties, i began having dreams about purchasing many Barbies and a feeling that came along with it in the dreams was the great love that i had for playing with them as a child.

Even though all of my dreams come true i could not imagine that i would actually start buying Barbie dolls for myself at my grown age.

A while after i had began working at J.C. Penny’s last year i’d go around window shopping, sometimes checking things out during my hourly breaks. I happen to hit a Toys ‘R’ us and a K.B. toy store and i was once again “captured” by Barbie.

I just couldn’t resist starting a collection. One day as i stood at a counter making a purchase a white woman about in her fifties uttered to me that she still “loves Barbie”. I’ve collected quite a few so far, just as many as i had when i was a little girl. I am going to buy a pretty curio to pose them all in.

Isn’t it nice to know the Barbie’s of our childhood (I have an original from the 60′s) are now worth a small fortune! Yah Barbie!

I Love Diner Dash 2

When i was growing up as a child the arcade games that came out and that were popular were Miss Pac-Man which i still love and Centipede an so on.

Nowadays the arcade games are much more advanced and much more exciting and fun to play. Yesterday morning i spent an hour killing time by playing Diner Dash 2 on my computer then again this morning i spent a little over an hour playing it.

I think it’s such a cute game and a nice way to occupy some time before going out to do my daily activities. Everybody has their own favorite games and i just felt like mentioning one of mine today!
