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.

I think you mean Scotty, lol. He's fine! All energetic and playful and generally making a nusiance of himself, as always. :P

How's your little Gimli? ;)

:D Yes, Scotty. I always think of him as Lucky since you saved him.

Gimli is fat and lazy and grunty; and, as you can see from the pics, he spends a lot of time guarding the fish pond, drinking from the fish pond, and falling into the fish pond. He likes to catch the food that floats on top when I feed them. :)

We're on spring break this week so I've been walking him more and yesterday we both dug in the flower bed. He made two holes big enough to trap a tiger in so I guess I'll fill those in today. He also rescues all the weeds from the weeding tub where I toss them. I pitch one and he gets it out and carries it somewhere else. Obviously our definitions of gardening aren't the same but at least he's self-amusing. :)

Heh. =) Gimli sounds adorable! He barks, he guards, he swims, he gardens - is there anything he can't do? XD

And gosh, speaking of gardening - Scotty digs huge holes in the garden, too - whenever he feels neglected and/or thinks I haven't played enough with him. He may amuse himself, but funnily enough, our gardener never finds it cute. ;)

He can't stop eating and begging for food. :)

Our gardener - oh wait - I'm our gardener! I never find it cute either but it keeps him busy while I plant things. Getting it in the dirt is half the battle.

He is cute though - you can't stay mad at the scamp.

Hee. =)

Yes, you're right about that. It is difficult to keep up with your scolding when they turn those liquid eyes of cute on you. :P

Are you on Twitter?
Ishaisha_libran on April 30th, 2009 05:55 am (UTC)
No, sadly. I find that being on two social networking sites at a time is hard enough for me. :P Why?

Cause I have a Twitter account. I find it easier to post a short sentence than a long post these days.

Ah. Sorry, though, I don't have one, and I doubt I'll be getting one anytime soon. :/
