Beauty School Dropout

By the time November rolled around Brian was in need of a haircut!!! He wanted me to do it, but there were two really big issues I had with this...
1) My eyes are crooked (ask any of my friends or just come to my apartment and see the pictures I've hung on the wall....they look straight to me but apperently they are all crooked). Since my eyes are crooked I can't do layers or make the hair look even, and Brian wanted layers.

2) I never went to Beauty school........nuff said.

These issues meant little to Brian so for one of his Birthday gifts he got a shaver. Immediatly after opening it he decided it was time to put me to work. I have to admit it didn't turn out all that bad! The hair on the right side of his head might have been cut a little shorter than on the left (he made me use the scissors!) and his bags looked a little funny, but he decided with a little bit of hair gel all would be well!


Better or Worse?!?

Stephen, my bum friend

So Tuesday night at work I had a bum come into my store.His name was Stephen and he reeked to high heavens but was super nice. He said he needed a phone charger for his phone because he had just lost his. So after looking around for a bit I found one and plugged his phone in to let it charge for a little bit. He wanted to buy it but he only had 5 dollars on him.  After a  minute of thinking he told me he had found another charger today but had thrown it away and he would be right back. After about 15 minutes he came back but told me he had no luck in finding the charger in any of the dumpsters he looked in. He then took his phone and left.

The next day at work I was telling Michelle, (the other girl that works here) about my encounter with Stephen. Well not even 10 minutes later guess who comes shuffling back in... Stephen!!! He stopped in front of the counter an pulled out  a garbage sack he keeps in his shirt, and pulled out a pair of bikers glasses. He pushed them across the counter and said they were for me so when I bike I won't get bugs in my eyes. He asked if he could plug in his phone for a little bit more, and then we chatted about his psychic girlfriend. I offered him one of my sandwhiches, but he turned it down and said he was on a diet and he picked his own food. He than thanked me and gathered up his stuff and left the store. I haven't seen him since, which my nose is greatful for but at least I know if ever I end up a bum I will at least have one friend who can show me the ropes.

Geezer Bandit

So I have lots to say, but for today I'm only going to tell about the Geezer Bandit. I was watching the news and they showed a bank on TV and I recognized it because it's the same exact bank I go to for AT&T in the mornings. Here's the story.....

SAN DIEGO - An elderly bank robber knocked over his fifth bank in less than three months Monday, law enforcement officials said.
The robber, dubbed the "Geezer Bandit" by local FBI agents, hit the Bank of America at 7680 Girard Ave in La Jolla just before 6 p.m. The man, thought to be in his 70s, displayed a gun and demanded money from a teller. He left the bank on foot with an unspecified amount of cash, investigators said.
Three different rewards, totaling $16,000 are being offered for information leading the arrest and conviction of the robber.
According to the FBI, he is responsible for robbing four other San Diego County banks:
U.S Bank at 9643 Mission Gorge Road, Santee on Aug. 28,
San Diego National Bank at 7877 Ivanhoe in San Diego on Sept. 12,
U.S. Bank at 4627 Carmel Mountain Road in San Diego on Oct. 9,
and Bank of America at 17008 Avenida de Acacias in Rancho Sante Fe on Oct. 26.
The robber is described as a white man in his 70s, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet 3 inches tall. He is thin with gray hair. Because he has used a gun, he should be considered armed and dangerous, agents said.,0,2662590.story
