Topic: How vain are you?

Forum: Humor and Games — Breast cancer is no laughing matter, but sometimes a good joke or a game is the best medicine.

Okay, a few of us have had so much fun on another thread comparing the ways in which we are still vain, that I thought it deserved its own thread.  Everybody chime in... how vain are you?

Edited to add:

We on the "How Vain Are You?" thread recognize that our sense of fun- and humour is not to everyone's taste.  Hence, we have chosen the "Humour and Games" forum to let our hair down.  Although swapping "vain" stories, style tips and beauty secrets are always eagerly welcomed, going off-topic is not a crime.  Neither is bad language or differing opinions.  We recognize that each- and every one of us is interested in conventional, complementary, holistic and alternative treatments as long as there is science-based  research behind each- and every one.  [Like someone said, if honey badger pee as a treatment for breast cancer had hard science behind it, I would be the first in line.]  We reserve the right to honestly discuss the strengths and weaknesses (and dangers) of everything, and laugh at the ridiculousness of life. 

This thread is for sharing and laughter, but it is also about the freedom to DISCOURSE, DISCUSS, DECONSTRUCT, DEBATE and DEBUNK the various- and sundry myths out there about breast cancer and breast cancer treatment no matter what they are.  But don't forget to recommend your favourite lipstick shade along the way.

"Sometimes, if someone believes in something, it works because our minds are more powerful to make it work." 

This comes from that other place. All I have to say is, if only! I think all of the stage IV ladies and their fervent beliefs in wanting to be cured, as well as anyone with a serious illness. Though I wish it were true, belief doesn't do it. Belief helps us have a better outlook in many cases but it doesn't make something "work".

Poor Momine, she only likes it if I flirt directly with her!  Momine, you are so pretty!  :)

M, thought you were going into town?  Spending some time with my most vain sisters, since I am having a pretty bad time of it here.  PT, recon talk, PS issues -- all are getting pretty overwhelming.  Funny that I've begged my way into the 'vain' thread -- I am being shoehorned into 'counseling' because people don't consider me vain enough since I do not want to continue with recon.
