Barbie Diaries 2004 (excerpts from my diary, dramatized by ME.) 2004:  I find out Ken has broken up with me (no, He never told me...I read it in the New York Times!)  I have a bad period, doing a stint of rehab at the Salvation Army toy bin, then get taken home by a man/artist(?) who likes to play with dollies.  I try to make sense of my life, get my first bath in over a year, re-enter the dating game (with disasterous results) and try and pull my life together as a middle aged (but still good looking if you ignore the hair, which I am working on) fashion icon whose best days seem to be behind me.
