Lipstick In School

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was 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.

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.

Hard to Believe

I can't believe that Adrienne is moving away in 2 and a half weeks. I'm glad that my schedule has been working out so that her and I can hang out more now. I'm going to miss her a lot once she moves. She doesn't have a lot of stuff outside of her bedroom, so it will be really strange because my house won't look any different, but my best friend will be gone.

Our lease runs out at the end of September, so Adrienne is still paying rent up until then, and Kyle and I are hoping that by September, we will have enough income that we don't have to move. I really enjoy my home, and I really hate moving. After a few months of paying full utilities, we'll have some idea of whether or not we can afford to add $300 a month to our budget.

Oh My God! Two Posts in a Week!!!

I actually had a day off today! It's a freaking miracle! Between my two jobs they try to make sure I work at least one job every day. I finally cut back my hours at the liquor store. I work at the liquor store 3 days a week now, all the other days I work at the Office.

But I guess I haven't even posted about my new job yet, so I will fill you guys in. I got a job working as Office Manager for a guy who runs a hotel and is starting up two additional business'. I am Office Manager for all three.

I love my new job, but my boss is a little scattered sometimes. He also tends to pull me into about 3000 directions at once. Mainly I just tell him to shut up and go away lol.

With all this work, my blogging as suffered. I'm sure both of you who still read this have noticed. And of course the other 3 readers who don't read anymore because of the lack of posting noticed as well!

I've been considering doing AudioBlog posts. It's quick and easy and I can do it from anywhere. When I type a post I have to actually thing about what I'm saying, but if I do an audioblog... well I almost never think before I speak!

What do the two of you think about that idea?
