Things I Hate: Justin Bieber Dolls

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

He looks a whole lot beefier in doll form, doesn’t he?

Teen idols are NOT supposed to have doll versions of themselves just in time for the holidays.

They just aren’t.

If you are at an age where you are still playing with Barbies, then I’m not sure you should know exactly who Justin Bieber is or desire a plastic facsimile of him.

Because we all know the “experiments” done with dolls, and nothing good ever comes of those.

And if you are at an age when you are no longer playing with Barbies, then you owning the plastic version of the object of your affection is all sorts of wrong in more ways than I can count.

Although I do have to say they seem to have gotten the blank stare just right.

When Biebers attack!

A sick ten month old who refuses to slow down and a husband who is working some extremely odd hours leads me to do an emergency cop-out post of a celebrity picture today.

I think Nahla is beautiful, but for some reason, I’m not loving her dress. Halle, on the other hand, is just annoying in her perfection.

I too live in an area where it is all about one-upmanship. Or is that everywhere?

Monday Teeny Poll

Who knew that mom jewelry would spark such divisiveness? In the closest Teeny Poll evah, mom jewelry was voted an “out” by 51% percent, which leaves 48% voting for an “in.” And don’t ask me why the numbers don’t add up properly, ask Twiigs. I happen to like some of the mom jewelry out there, and I think that if someone likes it, why not wear it? Granted, some of it is pretty awful, but the same can be said for many types of jewelry, which apparently doesn’t deter some people.

Today marks the end of a birthday weekend extravaganza for my son, which included a party where my mother-in-law was invited. Just to let you know, I don’t necessarily always get along with my mother-in-law.  But for the sake of the grand kids, we’ve made a semi-easy peace.  Or at least we are nice to each other’s faces.  I can’t say for sure what happens once she gets home.

Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

Well, shirtless Chris Meloni continues to trounce his opponents, beating Andre Braugher by a fairly wide margin.  Call me an idiot, but I’d rather have a drink with Andre than Chris.

Today I’ve got an actor who was made famous by a character with a particular “look” that I didn’t enjoy since I am not a fan of moustaches.  But, without the hair and moustache? Hello, gorgeous!  Let’s just ignore the fact that he named his son Pilot Inspektor, shall we?

News Anchor Barbie?


Not that there’s anything wrong with wanting to be a news anchor, but other than practicing how to read a teleprompter and having a killer workout routine, I’m not sure how aspirational the position is. 

I think I’m most disturbed, though, that the extremely technical-sounding Newborn Baby Doctor has a shorter skirt than the news anchor.


Which Witch is Which?

Time has a list of “Top Ten Witches.”

And where, may I ask, is Glinda?
