Beach Blanket Surgery

Summertime Blues

Summer advertises fun in the sun, but it also forces us to show off our bare flesh. What would you prefer to keep under wraps?

Do you like the way you look in a bathing suit? I don't. But my boyfriend does. A woman is always going to feel a little fat.

What part of your body do you hate the most? It's not a particular part. I wish I were taller.

If you could have plastic surgery, what would you do? I don't know that I would. I don't think I need to. I color my hair a lot, that's it. It lightens up my skin.

What famous person would you like to look like? Tyra Banks. I like everything about her. And she's tall.

Do you like the way you look in a bathing suit? Yeah. With reservations. I'm starting to settle a little around the tire area. If I wear a suit I pull it up a bit and if I stand right and the light is right, I can get away with it.

What part of your body do you hate the most? Hate is a strong word. I have a growing concern for what's happening up top. It's like a seeded lawn.

If you could have plastic surgery, what would you do? I'm too vain to have plastic surgery.

What famous person would you like to look like? I like the Clint Eastwood look. I like the way he's weathered.

Do you like the way you look in a bathing suit? Yeah. I'm happy with myself. It's not a competition.

What part of your body do you hate the most? My feet. They're too big. It's too difficult to get shoes to fit.

If you could have plastic surgery, what would you do? I don't need to change anything.

What famous person would you like to look like? Johnny Depp. He's pretty good looking. If I were gay I'd take him as my boyfriend.

Do you like the way you look in a bathing suit? Depends on my mood, I guess. Maybe I could have more muscles.

What part of your body do you hate the most? My stomach and my hips. If I have time I try to work out.

If you could have plastic surgery, what would you do? Honestly, I can't think of doing plastic surgery. If I want to change something, I'll work on it, exercise.

What part of your body do you hate the most? There's a few. The love handles. I'm starting to work on it, but it's hard.

If you could have plastic surgery, what would you do? I wouldn't have plastic surgery. I've seen too many talk shows about people getting fucked up. And I used to live out in California, so I've seen all these people. It irritates me.
