The other day I went into the hospital to find a friendly woman who wanted to buy my eyeliner. I had it out as I usually keep it in my pocket for touch-ups. First she asked to borrow it but my big mouth launched into a lecture about safe make-up wearing skills. She was informed that sharing eyeliner is a no-no and is taboo by people who wear makeup because the eye ball puss is natural and mixes on to the eyeliner. Generally, so I told her, I share everything but my eyeliner … you know if we’re going out or something even if the girl is a complete stranger but she’s coming along. So we were room mates for about two weeks so that counts as associated for the time being and I am a make-up supporter for all so my heart grew about four times. I gave her my brand-new eyeliner because she was really disappointed. As she was leaving she tried to give me some shampoo in a little tub so I thought “okay this is a new level of pre-clubbing sharing that today I can use to make friends” and then … she told me she found the shampoo in the bathroom of the ER or emergency room! By the way, the shampoo was really sophisticated.
Lately I don’t know what’s happening in Japan. It’s almost as if they no longer exist. I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I made the connection between the hair supply store and the flag of Japan icon during the recent Olympics TV broadcasting coverage. They have always regulated the beauty and hair supply store near my home. Due to their nearly perfect methods of managing hair and hair supplies, accessories and hair jewelry the local crime rate has dropped since the nineties. Generally, I cut my hair really short and am opting for dreaded corn rows because I don’t want any trouble from the shorties at the mall. They’re seventeen and really passionate about arts & culture. One even told me it was my fault that I seem “too-eco” because I haven’t considered weave-ing my style into corn-rows. I am not the only woman in the world that has fallen prey to the pony-tail occult. This occult starts them off young and after they butcher your pony-tail they sell products to you from the black or ethnic style aisle. I’ve been interested in the local salon culture for many years and recently found out a method to stay in trend for another thirty years.
I want to tell you something about the local Pickering mall. There are guys there working for the telecommunications company bullying (mainly women) people who do not use cell phones. There was a major sale at the store and they gave me a said free SIM card to get the account but what they did was bill me $65 on my credit to make some money because later they did not even follow up on the connection service. I would have paid the connection fee but because they told me the SIM card was a free gift I did not follow up and let it go because I did not want the cell phone anyway. Realistically I did get angry when I found out they silently charged me for the free gift and did not bother to follow up. Today when I see them laughing at the lone Mom without a way to call her family at home after a good sale I just look the other way.
Ontario Carnegie Libraries from a Patron Saint
This article provides information on Andrew Carnegie and the library buildings he donated to Canadian communities in the early 1900’s. The reasons Carnegie invested in public libraries are discussed throughout the world. He was a very rich fellow at 30 years old. When he was near the retirement stage in his life he sold his steel company for over 480 million dollars. He felt that it was his responsibility (along with all the other mega-wealthy people) to donate money to good causes. This movement was called philanthropy. Andrew decided that he wanted to pass on the life’s lesson that education should be free. He ended up donating a fortune to different educational projects and specifically libraries which gave people a free education. In Canada, 125 libraries were donated by Mr. Carnegie: the “Patron Saint of Libraries (Krass 419).
