This is how I used to feel, and not very long ago. It was just a couple months go. Now, I'm not so concerned with fitting in. I mean, sure, you're pretty and get to party, but after awhile, it doesn't seem like it would be fun anymore.
^^Exactly! Why would you want to get some operation, and look like everyone else? Thats why I enjoy the Extra series more. You dont have to get the operation to be pretty; you also can get things, more advanced.

Meh, if you truly knew me, you'd understand why I'm not above going beneath the law. ( xD I like that phrase )

I don't blame you. Once in a while, I wonder what is it like to get the operation. It'll probably be fun, being a bubblehead. Sure, the lesions are there but what you don't know can't hurt you. Ignorance is bliss~!

But then again, if I were to get a surge, I would prefer getting the special surge. I would love being ICY~!

So yea.

Errrr.....did you guys totally miss the whole point of the book? xD

There's got to be more to LIFE and more to people than just looks, drinking, or imitating everyone else.

Sigh. My niece was talking to me about how she wishes she was prettier the other day and I guess, I agree with the person who says this question depends on age, but eh...it still makes me cringe.

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night..
You make me dance like a fool
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile.

I'll take everything except the legions. The perfect health and unbreakable teeth and bones sounds awesome. Perfect eyesight sounds like a nice bonus too.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

That's what most people would go for. Though, honestly, I wouldn't mind getting rid of that annoying scar-rash thing I have on my neck from that tractor accident.

For me, it's not about being pretty. It's knowing I finally fit in.

I'm not sure I would get the pretty operation to think about. I would just tune myself up, look like I did before I was ravaged by starvation.

Yeah. The biological perfection is what draws me. Course, I'd end up jacking myself up into something that could snap a Special over its knee like a twig without thinking.

I really don't care about being super strong, the health would be nice though.
