I didn't say it was an attack.  I asked why it is funny that people are interested in something you are not interested in.  I still don't understand what is funny about it. 


Also, I had to look up "QTIP" but I assure you, I am not taking anything personally.  I am just curious why you (or anyone) would laugh at something that is popular that they are not interested in.

Spring, you wrote "over their in Paola."  You should have written, "over THERE in Paola."  She is right. You opened the door by correcting her spelling.  Have fun with the reaping.

Oh well. It is neither their OR there anyway (Paola that is). Shrug.

Over WHERE? Where did I say what Paola was?

My girls get the dolls for their birthdays and Christmas. I don't find them to be terribly expensive as they are really very good quality items. For Julia's last birthday, she got another doll, plus several accessories. We spent a lovely afternoon at the local store, just us girls. 

I am sure you did Laughing

She finds it funny that other people like it but she doesn't?  Why?  There are a lot of things that some people like that other people don't.  What is funny about that?

Ginny and Mrs. Weasly rock! Talk about strong female characters!
