It's true, eRobin. In the one picture of you I've seen, you didn't display nearly enough redness, swelling, or suppurating pustules to meet America's strict standards of beauty.

Lash extentions? That's ridiculous. That's a "Judge Judy" episode waiting to happen. Halp! A beauticion glued my eyes shut! And Judy, rightfully so, says, "You big dummy, why'd you go do that in the first place?"

You are toooooo funny.
Don't put anything near your eye, ever.
A pretty eye is a healthy eye, with good vision.

Hi, Mom :) I'm not going to get lash extensions. Don't worry. This wasn't a cry for help.

Funny, I actually read this after clicking on one of your links and noticing the headline. I briefly--BRIEFLY--wondered how much they charge for that in London...it is tempting, as I was born with miniscule eyelashes.

I share the temptation but once I read about eyelids that felt like they had "rows of thorns" glued on, I decided that my stubby little lashes would do.

Plus, doesn't it sound like once you go down this path, you can't ever get off it? It seems like the treatment would damage the natural lashes and leave the user dependent on the fake stuff. That's one reason I won't wear make up. In addition to setting a standard I can't meet naturally and without a lot of effort (I'm more lazy than vain), I think (but can't prove) that it actually leeches the color out of faces - especially lips - making us more dependent on it just to look normal.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
