My daughter has added a unique ritual when she is getting ready for the day. She now puts glitter gel on her face and all over her hair. She has glitter gel in every color imaginable and matches it with her clothes. She carries the gel, perfume and 37 shades of sparkly lip gloss in her gem studded purse. My Mother commented on her new sparkly appearance yesterday and her reply was, “you should see my purse Grandma, it’s full of prosthetics.” When we got in the car I said, “Cosmetics honey, not prosthetics. I know you don’t think I know anything but trust me on this one!”
Did you catch the show Strange Addictions the other night? That show blows me away. There was a lady that was addicted to smelling a doll head that she carried around with her. It was creepy. She would rub it all over her face, even in public. Another person was addicted to drinking gasoline! Yep, she was actually drinking it every day. And just when you think it can’t get any worse, they give a preview for the last show of the season next week. A lady
addicted to drinking her own urine. And she not only drinks it, she prefers it warm and brushes her teeth with it and rubs it on her face and hair. OMG doesn’t
do this one justice; I was practically gagging just watching the preview.
There has been a lot of buzz lately regarding a company called Bartle Bogle Hegarty. They have come up with a very creative way of giving people 4G access to the internet in areas where in the past it was difficult. They use homeless people wearing shirts or holding signs that state the person’s name and the fact that they are a hot spot. If a person wants access they can pay via PayPal, $2.00 per fifteen minute interval is the desired payment they
wish to receive but people can donate as much as they want. All of the money goes to homeless people or to the person holding the sign or wearing the shirt.
Some people think that the homeless people are being exploited and that we should just give them money and not allow them to do this job.
I think this is a good idea. We are giving them the opportunity to work and to earn some money. These people can have dignity in knowing they are earning a wage and hopefully it will help them to get back on their feet. I don’t live in a big city and don’t see homeless people on a daily basis. But I’ve heard
stories about how annoying it is to have these people begging for money on street corners and constantly looking for handouts. I think BBH is doing the right thing; they are helping people help themselves. Some say that these people are people and should not be referred to as a hot spot, and we are making them
sound like things and not people. I disagree again, I blog and people call me a blogger, it that wrong? If I could make money being a 4G hotspot I would do it.
What do you think?
Have a fantastic Tuesday!
