due to a two-pack-a-day smoking habit and cream pastries, she gained weight (to 250 lbs.).

Kind of weirdly worded since, if anything, smoking usually aids in people losing weight. Usually people gain weight when they stop smoking. Or did they mean she was eating two packs of cream pastries a day, that would be another story (j/k).

Had never heard of her before.



Blame friend halco for all this. I bought the Darbee Darblet visual enhancer ( ) and halco said the name reminded him of a 1930’s child star. With such an opening I couldn’t resist. So I wrote an entirely made-up biography of ‘Darbee Darblet’, 1920-30’s child star.

Now I wonder how Darbee themselves are going to answer queries about the moppet.

Rich, thank you for the compliment.
