Just saw a thing on TV called "Extreme Makeover".
I mean, for goodness sakes, that was the body and face that you were given, why change it?.
I blame the mass media for this, thin pretty women, that have never done a days work in their lives!.
I may not be a picture-perfect specimen myself, but I would not change my looks to suit everyone else.
Surgery?, Nah, Get real!.

You need to get back to work, that broken leg is causing you to watch daytime/reality tv give it up now before it takes over your life and you end up appearing on the Jerry Springer show

How is the leg by the way?

I saw that show too. Do you think that this guy can get the "extreme makeover" and become an instant TV star?

Hope you are recuperating. If you need something to do I will send you some editing work.

Hey, better watch it Mike. Joe is sending his favorite electrical inspector down under after you......

Way off-topic still, but one thing that really bugs me is the idiotic way that young girls are pressured into diets and slimming these days, when most of them look just fine as they are. When we see newspaper stories of perfectly adorable and slim 9-year-olds complaining about being fat, you know the media has gone too far.

That's not to say there aren't extreme cases of obesity though. A few days ago the news here reported the case of a 3-year-old girl who died from heart failure. She weighed over 80 lb.

Glad you're back at work anyway Mike.
