Why did I give this blog such an odd name? Well, I needed something that would stand out in the crowd. As of February 16, 2011, there were 156 million blogs in existence, and Lord only knows how many more have come along in the year since then. Even my 11-year-old son will have his own blog as part of his curriculum at school, along with all of his classmates. I found out when I had to sign a permission form for his teacher. I pity the kids in his class who did not get consent for blogging and other Internet usage. (Hopefully, there aren't too many short-sighted parents who would deny their children the necessity of technology, but unfortunately, there's always at least one fool in every crowd.) The kids without Internet will be at a big disadvantage not only in school, but throughout life as well. Blogs are here to stay!
As I said yesterday, I respect all well-thought out points of view on the subject of cosmetic surgery. And according to Wikipedia, "cat herding" is defined as "an idiomatic saying that refers to an attempt to control or organize a class of entities which are uncontrollable or chaotic. Implies a task that is extremely difficult or impossible to do, primarily due to chaotic factors."
And plastic surgery is nothing if not chaotic. Not only does everyone have a different opinion of it, but new procedures and new ways of doing existing procedures come along every day. And as new methods of doing plastic surgery come along, attitudes may very well change. Or maybe not. As the French saying goes, "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Will the French be proven right or wrong on this one? Stay tuned and find out!
