Dinner on the Ship (Photostory)

 The ship's dining room is full. Halle and Diego haven't made it to the dining room, yet.  Let's check in on a few of the other guests while we await their arrival.

There's a familiar face.  It's Paulette, Danielle's sister-in-law.  Mmmm, apparently she has a new beau.  No wonder we haven't seen her lately.
"So what's next on the agenda, babe?" (Don)
"Let's go relax by the pool."  (Paulette)

"Okay.  Let me finish my beer, first.  Then we can go."  (Don)

"I just can't believe it's over.  I gave that man 5 years of my life.  What a waste!" (heartbroken passenger)
Her friend, Christine, listens intently, and tries to be supportive.  Deep down she's happy that her friend's relationship is over.  Her ex-boyfriend was a top notch jerk, who treated her like crap. 

"Darrin, can you please finish your dinner, so we can go.  We have to go meet Daddy."  (British mom)
  
The ship's bartender is ready to serve.  The bar was a gift from my dear friend Cindi Mortensen. She handcrafted it, and sent it to me as a thank you for letting her adopt the black puppy.  Isn't it beautiful?

We finished just in the nick of time.  Halle and Diego have arrived.  Halle is wearing a beautiful white cotton, full length dress, by Shasarignis.  As a matter of fact, Shasarignis must be a popular designer.  Paulette and the heartbroken passenger are both wearing designs from Shasarignis.

"Everything looks so good.  What do you feel like eating?"  (Diego)
"You know I'm always down for some good seafood."  (Halle)

As the heartbroken passenger continues reminiscing, Christine turns her attention to the fine specimen at the buffet.  She notices the lady on his arm, but she doesn't see a ring, so he's fair game.
"Are you even listening to me?"  (heartbroken friend)
"Sorry. I was distracted by that gorgeous man at the buffet."  (Christine)

"Honey, that table just opened up.  Why don't you go grab it?  I'll bring you some seafood.  What else would you like?"  (Diego)
"I'll take some asparagus, too."  (Halle)

Halle heads to the empty table.

After sitting for a bit, she notices that the lady at the next table hasn't taken her eyes off Diego.  At first Halle just smiles.  Face it, Diego is hot.  After awhile, she starts getting irritated.  Seems like she's trying to make eye contact with Diego.  "I know that itch sees me sitting here.  Now she's just being rude."  (Halle to herself)

Diego returns with two plates.

"I brought you some scallops and asparagus.  I also have a lobster tail for you on my plate."  (Diego)
"Thanks, honey." (Halle)

"Damn.  Look at that arse."  (Christine)
"My ex had a beautiful arse, too."  (heartbroken friend)

"I'm going to get us some drinks.  What would you like?"  (Diego)
"A glass of white wine, please."  (Halle)

"What's up?  Can I get a glass of white wine and a dark ale."  (Diego)
"Sure thing.  How are you enjoying your trip so far?"  (Bartender)

"Can we get back to me and my problems?"  (friend)
"You gave that man 5 years already.  Do you really want to give him more time?  Especially when you can spend that time meeting new people."  (Christine)

When Diego returns with the drinks, he notices that Halle is a little tense.
"What's wrong?"  (Diego)
"You didn't notice your audience?  The one in the blue has been staring you down the entire time.  It's as if she doesn't even see me."  (Halle)

Diego pulls Halle's chair a little closer.
"Do I detect a little jealousy?"  (Diego, smiling)
"No, I'm not jealous.  I just don't like being disrespected."  (Halle)
"Honey, do you know how often I have to deal with men staring you up and down?  You are beautiful and that goes with the territory.  If I let that bother me, I would be fighting constantly.  You know you have my heart, so you don't have to worry about anyone else.  So can we eat before the food gets cold? "  (Diego)
He gently kisses Halle on the lips and  then digs into his plate.

We'll check in on them later.

Meet Darrin.  He's the newest Chelsea sized little boy.

His mom is the British Doll of the World.  

I just bought this head.  After I attached him to his new body, he started looking like actor, Don Cheadle.  I'm not sure if that's who he's supposed to be, but I'm named him Don.  We will see more of him in Morristown.

  1. I'm so happy you were able to use that bar in one of your dioramas! A cruise ship is a perfect setting for it. Enjoy it my friend. May it bring you and the residents of Morristown much fun and joy. Bruiser is growing more long than tall. LOL. :-)

    1. Cindi - Yes, that bar is going to come in handy for future scenes, too. Thanks again. I am babysitting Brownie (Brandy) this week. Her owner is at a lake house that doesn't allow dogs. So it's back to three puppies for a little while. They are definitely more mischievous when the three are together.

  3. I don't blame Halle, that woman was out of line. Just like she's staring at Diego, the next woman might be staring at her hubby. I swear, I thought the upset aromas was going to say Diego was her long lost boyfriend, Lol. That would have been crazy. I love the Chelsea size boy. I will have to get one for my daughter to go with her Chelsea size girls.

    Great story. :-)

  4. I love the bar and the food the most. I'm worried about the guy in the background always standing in the same place with his back turned. Is he on drugs or maybe some psycho?

  6. That head is definitely Don Cheadle.

    Part was definately imitating life the way those itches were checking out Diego without regard to Halle, like vultures after fresh meat.

    The food looks delicious.

    What is the guy in the background doing?

    1. DBG - Once I gave Don a neck and body, it was pretty clear. Now if I can only find a Denzel head that is done just as well. Girl, Halle may have to show out on this cruise. Christine seems to be a piece of work.

    1. justJay - People can be so rude, and Christine was just a little over the top. I hope that ship is big enough where she and Halle won't have to see to much of each other.

  9. Love the ship and the story. Christine better watch herself! I also bought the Darrin doll. I had an extra Chelsea body from the Pony Tale story that had articulated knees so I swapped the bodies. Looking forward to the next installment!

    1. Phyllis - Yes, Christine doesn't know who she's dealing with.. I wish these Chelsea/Darrin dolls had arms that move out to the side. The SIS kids have much better arm and leg movement.

  10. I think he looks like Don Cheadle. Enjoying the story. Waiting to see what happen next.

  11. Darrin is nice. We also have this Chelsea and friends line in our stores now, and I've bought the boy last week. I'm glad Mattel made a Chelsea sized boy at last. It would be good to get Stacie and Skipper sized boys also, but I don't think Mattel will ever make them...

  17. Looks like it could be an interesting trip. Hopefully, there are some other attractive, unattached men around that we haven't met yet so that all the females are happy. Diego handled it well though.

  22. LOLLLLL! ;D

    I loved how you named the Barbie "British mom".

    I noticed how angry Halle looked as she walked to the table. Unless that is how the toy designer molded and painted her face or how the light hit her face, she look like she was frowning. Well no wonder...those gawking women were pissing her off.

    That black male doll does favor Don Cheadle a bit. He is one of my favorite actors.

    And that's who Diego reminds me of: Raoul Bova. Have you heard of him? He's a very handsome and sexy Italian actor.

    He played in Alien vs. Predator which starred Sanaa Lathan.

    1. KenyaDoll - British mom was my way of telling people which doll she was. LOL about Halle looking angry. That is her normal look. I didn't change it.

      Raoul is fine! I am not familiar with him. Thanks for sharing him with us.

  23. Halle was about to take off her earring and throw down! Diego does has a point though about men looking at her and she should expect women to look at him... with his sexy self! I better stop looking at him or Halle will be giving me the stink eye.

    1. Muff - Halle was about to go all Muff on her a___. She doesn't mind you admiring her man, just don't linger too long. Any woman looking as long as she was has something other than admiration on her mind, especially if she's checking for his wedding band.

  24. Yay for Ms. Paulette and her new beau. (He does so look like Don Cheadle.) Nice to see the other new dolls. Especially Darrin.

    Uh oh, Christine is possibly too young to remember the classic "Meeting in the Ladies Room." Diego looks way better than the male love interest in that video, lol. 'Course Halle is too classy to remove her jewelry and grease her face. Halle?

    Sigh. Diego is sooo charming. I can't wait to see him later - I mean, them. Him AND Halle. You know I meant that, yes?

    1. D7ana - LOL! Thanks for the video. That brought back memories. I don't think Halle will throw down like that, but I'm sure she can hold her own, if necessary.

  25. Oh my!! I understand how Halle feels, but the truth is that Diego hasn't done anything wrong, and you can avoid people from looking (covetously) to other people LOL. Anyway she had a bad time, for sure. And the bar table is great, your friend did a great job with it!
