HI there & hope you’re well today

It was day 2 of the new ‘What am I’ today & here are the latest clues:

1: I am thought to be the oldest one of what I am in the world today

2: I am still in use today

3: It is thought that I have been around since the 13th century

4: There is another one of me which claims to be the oldest one in the world

5: I’m in competition with a dragon

6: I am unique to where I’m from


I saw this today & had to share it with you!


Barbie doll fan has hypnotherapy to make her ‘brainless’ like her icon

Anyone who feels that feminism has already taken a few too many knocks, look away now.

Barbie wannabe Blondie Bennett is making her fantasy of becoming plastic a reality – by using hypnotherapy to make her more stupid.

In the latest addition to a strict regime of spray tans, Botox and lip fillers, the 38-year-old has up to three sessions a week to make her more vacant.

And it appears to be working, as the Californian admits to getting lost on the way to her mother’s home – the house she grew up in.

She said: ‘When people ask why I want to be Barbie, I think, “Who wouldn’t want to be?”

‘She has the best life. All she does is shop and make herself look pretty – she doesn’t worry about anything.

‘I’ve had 20 sessions and I’m already starting to feel ditzy and confused all the time.

‘Recently, I went to pick up a friend at the airport and couldn’t remember if I needed to go to departures or arrivals.’

Ms Bennett – who has spent £25,000 on five boob jobs, taking her to a 32JJ – says her obsession began when she played with the doll as a child.

In her teens, she bleached her hair and drove a Corvette – and at 18, she took on promotional jobs at toy shops pretending to be her heroine.

She said: ‘People thought it was just a phase but I thought to myself, “As soon as I move out of home, I’m going to turn myself into Barbie”.

‘I was forced to live a double life until about eight years ago when I decided to become Barbie for real and ignore what other people said.’

She changed her name 18 months ago and had liposuction on her chin in December to perfect her similarity to the toy.

Her surgery has been funded by online sugar daddies, who also pay the unemployed former size zero model’s rent in exchange for pictures of her dressed up as Barbie.

She said: ‘I want people to see me as a plastic sex doll – and being brainless is a big part of that.’
