You're So Vein



Photo taken last year at the New York magazine Oscars party. And the Best Use of Blood Vessels goes to...

My boyfriend makes fun of me because I ruin half of our pictures with my gigantic forehead vein that pops out whenever I'm happy or excited in any way like some sort of ridiculous forehead boner. Reminds me of when I used to squeeze my little sister's doll and try to make the head shoot off while she shrieked in horror (which was like 5 years ago, by the way -- she's 12 now).

But I'm not alone in this. Go watch any Julia Roberts movie in which she cries and you'll see hers jump out, threatening to hit the camera man in the face. In my own defense I've compiled a list below of some other celebrities who are living in vein. I'm not positive who that last bitch is (Tanya Roberts??) but her head does it too so I'm obligated to love her. United we bulge!

What I love is how, in the chimp picture, there's not just the main forehead vein, but a series of tributary veins to the right, giving half of your face a kind of Klingon effect. You're so vein!

Noelle Hancock said...

Actually Nick C. (aka my boyfriend), those aren't tributary veins. Those are wrinkles. Yay sun damage!

you know, that boyfriend of yours looks like a total cheesedicky toolbox. i'll bet that he's the type of guy who is constantly begging his girl, i.e. you, to saddle a strap-on and pillage his browneye with the intensity of a million suns.

just a hunch.

:)

seriously, email me. i don't think that i have a working current email address for you and i have something i'd like to send your way.

You're holding a monkey and you want me to look at your forehead.

I have another one for you. I was watching Gossip Girl last night (don't ask) when what should I see appear? A vein! It was on Penn Badgley's forehead when he smiled in the closing scene.

Tanya Roberts was the MILF from "That 70s Show." Just FYI.

I have the same problem! I hate it, let me know if you find a solution. I even went to the doctor to see if there was anything I could do, and they said, "NO!"

OMG, I can't believe I came across this post. MY boyfriend has the same problem! After many years of making fun of him for his veiny forehead, I realized that I have the same problem! Only when I laugh hysterically, but still it's nice to know there are others like us out there!

I have the exact same problem with my forehead. It's nice you posted some pics of other people including yourself with this affliction. I have decided to wear my hair in bangs after noticing it in more the mirror. Glad to find this post.

Funny I happened upon this blog, over a year after it was created. Good stuff. My guess is your forehead boner is larger than your boyfriend's boner and thus he's jealous. Don't listen to him.

Spider veins are always of the skin and much smaller than varicose veins.
