INBETWEENERS – DAVE HAS BECOME ADDICTED TO IT!

Hey this is Dave from iWakeUp – So with all the talk of The Inbetweeners movie set for release this week, I decided it was about time I watched at least one episode of the Channel 4 hit show to see what the fuss was about. The truth be told, I couldn’t stop at just one episode and in just two days I watched 9 episodes. It really is a brilliant show, I’m hoping I can get all the episodes in before the movie hits the big screen this Wednesday.

FANCY CATCHING UP ON ALL THE EPISODES?

83 YEAR OLD GETS A BOOB JOB

WE COULDN’T ACTUALLY GET A PICTURE OF THE WOMAN BUT WE IMAGINE SHE LOOKS LIKE THIS


A Santa Ana woman is making national news after getting breast implants at age 83, unwittingly finding that her new breasts are now front and center to controversy.

It all started with a New York Times article about Marie Kolstad who, at 83, is a full-time property manager with a total of 25 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But something wasn’t quite right.

She put it this way: “Your breasts go in one direction and your brain goes in another.” So she spent $8,000 on a boob job — specifically a breast lift with implants.

“Physically, I’m in good health, and I just feel like, why not take advantage of it?” she told the newspaper, adding, “I want my children to be proud of what I look like.”

The article went on to describe the increasing number of men and women turning to plastic surgery in their older years, and what that says about our culture. But the online world is taking the story in another direction.

“Granny’s boob job shows rise of plastic surgery in seniors,” said CBS.com, which picked up the story along with Time, ABC and other outlets. Over at ABC, commentators debated the merits, and safety, of such surgery. “It is one thing when a young, healthy woman wishes to undergo the danger of an operation and anesthesia for the sake of her vanity. It is quite another for an 83-year-old woman to do so,” said one commenter. Over at ThirdAge.com, Kolstad was cheered on: “Can’t take it with you … go for it grandma!”

 

What do you think? Is 83 too old for the knife? Or should everyone just mind their own business?
