This is a Men's Heatlh article in today's Yahoo website|
Look whom they've chosen to represent the "Drama Queen" LMAO!!
(I'm going to save a copy of this article when I get home)

I think everybody knows one of these--sometimes more than one in the same woman!
Oh yes! Certainly there are women who are mixtures.
In fairness meanwhile I'm sure there's a similar list concerning men.
oh man the woman i have dated :O too many drama queens, id rather take a klingon :P
For the Makeover Artist, I skimmed when they said, "Guess what you'll be wearing to the next barbie?" I momentarily thought it was saying something about the Artist choosing your clothes much as she used to do for her Barbie dolls. Then I got the idea of her picking the same kinds of clothes as for Barbie. As if the Ken style weren't gay enough!
Aussie slang. "Barbie" = Barbeque. I've never liked this slang myself, when it's easier to write "BBQ".
The confusion was once used in a gag for an episode of an Australian sitcom "Hey Dad" when the father complained about all the accessories he'd bought for his daughter's "Barbie" and a nearby joker replied "You forgot 'toss another shrimp on the Barbie' "
Oh, I know the slang term -- what movie-loving American doesn't? It's just not my default interpretation.
Rather than saving a copy of the article at home, I realised it would be better to print out a PDF copy and bring that home...
...and I left it at work. Typical Stephan. :(
There's a huge volume of information to assimilate in this and I haven't quite comprehended all of it (even with my dyslexic glasses) but I've taken in the overall gist. "The Klingon" title doesn't sound very apt to me. I would have expected such a person to be volatile, brutal or a control freak.
My first girlfriend was certainly a mixture; she had elements of The Gold-Digger (certainly she was NOT in love with me, just whatever she could get out of me), and the Drama Queen (sheesh, the petty things she would turn into tantrums the size of atomic detonations).
I'm not sure if I can identify my 2nd girlfriend in any of these. She wasn't a Gold-Digger (she often claimed she wasn't good enough for me because she was so poor - I always replied that I didn't care), she wasn't a Makeover Artist, she could occasionally be a Drama Queen but not to the point that it was anything serious, she doesn't fit the "Klingon" category although she DID tend to want me to call her rather frequently, she certainly was never an Ice Queen, nor a Nagger or a Martyr. I guess she just wasn't a siren.
I agree with you on "Klingon." They mean to evoke "Cling-on," but it takes too long to figure out.
Aha... Thanks. Now it makes a little more sense...
