And...

In ancient Rome, couples became betrothed by kissing passionately in front of a group of people. This is probably one reason why modern couples kiss at the end of wedding ceremonies. Additionally, although most people today think of love letters as "sealed with a kiss," kisses were used to seal legal and business agreements. Ancient Romans also used kissing as part of political campaigns. However, several "kisses for votes" scandals in 18th century England led – in theory – to candidates kissing only the very young and very old.

With the kissing, all I have to say is... Interesting and odd. With Barbie, yes, what is it with her and all of her fancy frizzle frazzle stuff? She's got fricken everything! She IZ everything. What in the world? Although, I did like to play with Barbies when I was younger.. And even when I was in the 6th or 7th grade; I'm in the 12th now. I'd still play with barbies. lol Another thing... What is that next to the barbie? A basket of cookies?

I once had the idea of developing a line of doll brothels from various eras and different parts of the world, but I never followed up on it.

My own RAnDoM bit of info ;)

I love your Atia of the Juilii icon ;)

Speaking of ancient Rome, most of our winter holiday traditions are based upon the holiday Saturnalia. Saturnalia wa celebrated for basically the whole month of December, honoring Saturn and the harvest. Our traditions of hanging lights, or lighting candles (like the menorah) derive from this holiday, to celebrate the solstice and return of the sun. The Romans would also cut down a tree and bring it into the house to celebrate the harvest (sound familiar?).
During Saturnalia, slaves and masters would trade places (Roman slaves were treated a hell of a lot better than the slaves of other cultures, but they were still slaves), gambling was allowed ( a big no no) and NO ONE worked, absolutely everything was closed.
When Constantine converted to Christianity and made it the official religion of the Roman Empire, he knew there would be a fuckin' riot if he got rid of the most popular holiday of the year. This is part of the reason why Christmas is in December.

She's got a definite vampire sense to her, I think. I can definitely see that, too.

i was thinking the snobby heiress:

"i have this good bedroom because i deserve it, because i am beautiful, because my very presence on the eath demands that my stuff is better than yours"

"i demand HIGH ceilings. i DESERVE high ceilings!"

In an effort to stave off reports that Barbie pushes millions of girls each year to eating disorders, we now present Royal Barbie complete with bedroom set, expensive gown, and tea & crumpets on a tray, we believe kids will be more attracted to the other attributes Barbie displays such as her bedroom looking much like it belongs to a lady of the evening. This way, when children are pushed out onto the street for rebelling against their parents, now they will have a means of paying for food if they do so desire to consume any and keep it down.

CAPTION: "Bordello Barbie" is the only Barbie not to sport the signature airhead grin, and is the first in its line to have nipples.

Which Barbie is that, really? that room doesn't scream "Barbie Dream House" to me... i LOVE it, but where's the pink pink pink??

love, another barbie fan

lol! She really doesn't look anything like most barbies, I agree.


--- And I think it's a custom set. Someone did it that isn't really a barbie designer. ;)
