Lipstick In School  
According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem.

A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are teachers ... and then there are educators.

Hey you!

Castle wasn't quite as good this week but Nathan was *so* adorable! Also he does a wonderful job with the father/daughter dynamic.

Huh. I liked this week's episode much better than the pilot. For me, the pilot tried too hard and went overboard with the snark and such. And I was very, very spoiled on it, so I think that really detracted from it for me. I'm not a spoilers girl, and this reminded me of why. It was fun to quote along with the ep, but there wasn't anything new for me to enjoy, really, so...not so much fun.

The second ep was new and bright and shiny for me.

I liked how they toned down the cheese just a bit...and the father/daughter thing was adorable.
