Dan Barbado

Okay. Sweetpea and I were discussing the many fine attributes of Natalie and Dan and she mentioned that Dan Barbado's a grad student. That got me to thinking about Dan, and more importantly, all that background stuff that comes from knowing where these people are from.

So, not sure how many of you know these things, but I'm just stating them for reminder's case.

The school they come from (I believe) is a public school, but the area where they're from is base upper middle class. These families are doing all right. So basically, most of these kids never had to work their way through school or anything and have had (for the most part) decent/sheltered upbringings (yes, this is an assumption based on who I know that lives there and the kids I know that go/have gone to the school..I'm not talking about the exceptions like possible rape, incest, torture and the like), but yes, I would say it was safe to say this kids were sheltered for the most part. That wasn't really my point, but it showed up anyway. =)

Actually what I wanted to mention was another point of location. They grew up right near a street called Harlem Avenue. This was/is a 'strip' of sorts...this was dubbed 'Little Italy'. The girls with their huge high hair would be hanging by boys who were leaning on their I-Roc Z's and they were just soooo cool...just ask them! (Yes, I've actually know one of these humans). A lot of these males believe that they are all that...with their expensive clothes and their jewelry and their tans. They would be the guys at all the dance clubs macking on all the ladies and spending as much time getting ready for a night out as girls would. We call these humans Guidos (no offense to the Italians out there).

To me, Dan Barbado reeks of Guido. I look at him and I have to giggle because he's so thinking he's all that and he.......well, makes me giggle. =)

Dan, Dan, he's our man, if he can't flex, no one can!!!

I hope he and Natalie mate and have little chillin'!!! Then when they get old enough they can see the show and they can say, "eeew mommy, your butt's hanging out of your pants!"
"But honey, that's how I landed your daddy!"

And there would be hugs abound.

That one fuzzy though alone can keep me warm through the night. =p

um, okay, bye-bye.

quick note.. her name is Natasha (Natalie's close though):). And maybe the Guidos in that area look like Dan, from the Guidos I've seen (Stuck up Italian guys from Long Island -they all go to SUNY Albany where I once went), Dan doesn't seem to me to be a Guido, but he does seem to have the mentality.
Ahh, now New York guidos I'm sure are more butch and tough like...much moreso of the guido attitude.
This is just little little Italy so he's more like a baby guido (kinda like Guda cheeses).

Ah, told you I was going to destroy their names....that's why I always have little nicknames for everyone. =)

He seems definitely to be a party boy (right down to the tat only on his shoulder) for certain but he lacks some of the sliminess I've seen in the type of person you refer to. Definitely stuck up but not necessarily slimer. By far, too much of a player, and all about going to Weed Street to party (there really is a Weed Street here in Chicago in the Lincoln Park neighborhood) but not necessarily greasy.

See, call him what you want (not even sure if the boy is Italian) but he reeks of guido to me!!!
I guess in my friend's world guidos are one of those people who think they are just the sexy most with their open shirts and the like. Not just Italians are guidos either. There were a lot of Greek boys at Lane Tech that could also fit the guido mode. Hey, it's just a name like any others...I just choose this name for Danny boi.

But I smell the slime. I used to be friends with this girl whose brother was sooo this guy (go figure, he lived in River Forest)...maybe that's why I'm stuck on that. This guy would hit on you then think he was doing you a favour for noticing you.

So, yeah, me no likey Dan the man regardless of how you want to catagorize him. =)
