Haven't any of you heard of Botox parties?
The hip new way to socialize while you become a Stepford Wife.
I do not know anyone who has used Botox or had plastic surgery...except one schoolmate who, many years ago, replaced her very characterful Jewish nose with an oddish one that made her look goggle-eyed. Oh...two women I waitressed with while I was at uni had had boob jobs.
Not that I have any reason to think that Botox and plastic surgery are not well used here, but they appear to run in very different circles from those I run in.
I cannot imagine any bridesmaid who would not murder a bride who tried to insist on a boob job, but what would I know? I think all expensive weddings are a heap of ****, anyway. There have been a few at work recently, one of which had me in convulsions re the fuss made. The other couple had a very small, quiet one. I think they are worth a big, fun party....but nothing more. The funnest weddings I have been to have been where guests bring food and drink to supplement what the couple and their families provide.
Doctors etc are very restricted in how they may advertise here, too. I was dumbstruck when I saw the ads in the New York subway for doctors and lawyers etc!!!
