OK, that was mean. Comments and real answers...

#1: Like to think I could resist, even though I occasionally get unnerved by the fact that I'm getting jowls.

#3: Depends on what and how he/she asks, and whether he/she has already demonstrated willingness to work on areas that are of concern to me...

#4: Most of the time, but not always, and the variation is pretty much independant of other people's shit--it's almost always my stuff.

#5: I have huge issues about insurance in general that can't be addressed here. *grin*

#8: Mary Sue daydreams aside, I am under no delusion that a celeb would be looking for anything like that from me, and I know enough folks who have fans to know that to do something like that would only scare them to death, anyway. And rightly so.

#9: Define beautiful.

Favorite body part: It wouldn't let me finish. *grin* I actually do like my butt best, and it's not a little, dainty butt, either, but I still like it. Which is sort of unAmerican, in that we're sort of expected to hate our butts unless they're just this side of non-existent.

#1: I like to think I'm immune to the temptation. I think being this side of 40 makes that immunity a little weak.

#3: Here, here!

#4: Oops. I should have had 'most of the time' as one of the selections. I'm glad that was your answer. Like most people, it should be 'always' but, most of the time is pretty darn good.

#5: Feel free to expound. We're in a flap up here because the government is planning on selling our health insurance to an American company. ::shakes fist at Canuckleheads::

#8: Mary Sue dreams indeed. But there are people that think about that kind of stuff.

#9: :o) In the vein/vain :o) of the poll the 'looks' kind.

*grin*

#9: Then my answer is: "My friends are pretty diverse, in terms of how they compare to the current definition of physical beauty, and I'm sort of in the middle somewhere--not the most "pretty" and not the least "pretty."

Forgot - That's so cool that you're proud of your butt!!! :o) You are SO RIGHT about our butts having to be this side of barely existent to be liked. Yay for your bum! :o)

The only plastic surgery I'd get done is a breast reduction. 36 DD on a petite frame is no one's friend...

That's understandable.
