Too much time on my hands...

After spending several blissful hours of unsuccessfully searching for a job, my brain has the tendency to wander. A lot. And the brain invites in stupid ideas to get lodged in my head. I don't know where this idea came from, but it's really a winner: I want to make an "action" figure of myself. So I just finished doing a Google search and found a few people who will make a disturbingly realistic rendition of someone for several hundred dollars...so that's not an option. I think I'll go through my old She-Ra dolls and find someone who could resemble me (don't try to deny it--everyone had He-Mans and She-Ras during the 80s...some still might have them tucked away in storage.) Then, I'll get some model paint from the hobby shop and paint the whole clothing-covered body black and maybe cut the hair a bit and voila, there I'll be.

What type of "action" will the Jen figure be doing? I'll have to find a miniature coffee cup and a miniature copy of The New Yorker. I'll be "Half-Assed Job Searcher Girl." Maybe I'll find a turtle, maybe from an old Strawberry Shortcake collection from the 80s as well (where will I ever find that??) and I'll have a sidekick/means of transportation.

Ohh! Inspiration!

How coincidental! Last night I was fantasizing about getting my childhood Barbie Dolls back. I know they are lost forever...I must have given them away at some point. But oh what I would give to have them back now.

I still have all my My Little Pony dolls and the damn jingle in my head. "My Little Pony, my little pony.. I like to comb and brush her hair. My Little Pony, my little pony, I like to set fire to her hair." Okay so I changed the jingle slighty when I was a demented youth.
