FF: I Thought I Was Empty

Amazingly enough, I am nearly fragment-free this week, but I shall give it a good college-try. What that means is a mystery to me really, but I've never let not understanding stop me before.
Okay, Mrs. 4's and Sara and all you who participate in:
Here we go!

*Took my high-schooler to get her schedule and was thrilled when she was put in a homeroom with my new friend's son. That family is very controlled and conservative and the kids are soooo polite. I thought the boy would be a nice "friend" for my daughter. The very first thing the boy did when they got to their homerooms? Loudly rated the girls' chests.

*Pepper the dog graduates next week. By virtue of having only 2 dogs in class, she is assured the valedictory or salutatory spot. Can't wait for her speech.
*Went back to work this week. Haven't taught during the day for many centuries, but think I shall adapt to it.
*I often wonder if I would still teach even if I did NOT get paid. The answer: almost yes.

*Why, on the first day of school for me, when it was raining in a Noah's Ark-type manner and my shoes got wet, did one shoe start to emit soap bubbles?

*Did you know you can change the size of your font by pressing and holding ctrl and turning the wheel on your mouse?

*Kim-d's post made me laugh and laugh and laugh yesterday. Thanks, girlie.

Cute doggy!!!!

Soap coming from your shoe is strange. I cannot imagine why it would do that after getting wet. Very odd.

I just held ctrl down while scrolling the wheel on my mouse, and my screen totally zoomed in and out. Neato!

Hi Caution,

Teaching during the day?? Blew my hopes...up until I read that, I was sincerely going to suggest lunch once the kids were all settled back.

I am starting to feel some relief just knowing it's coming.

And hey, glad you have clean shoes!!

Is Pepper graduating Summa Cum Doggie? Love those self cleaning shoes. Where can I get some?

Unknown Mami said...

Maybe your feet are just so clean they want to clean what's around them.

This was fun! I can't wait to hear how Pepper did :)

And I'm sending Kim D's post to my brother, a doctor, and sis-in-law, a nurse in a former lifetime!

Happy weekend -

Lucy, in the midst of computer woes

It's always the quiet and polite ones... ;)

Are you going to post Pepper's speech? ;)

Bubbles from your shoes? That would have freaked me out a bit... :)

Happy FF! :)

What you lack in number, you excel in quality-these fragments are great. I especially love the proud graduate pic-hilarious. And the soap bubbles? How odd is that?

Love your FB pic, BTW-you look adorable.

Off to read Kim's post :)

LadyFi said...

Appearance are so deceiving - as shown by that ever-so-polite boy!

Pepper - make sure your speech is a good one! Don't bark up the wrong tree now, will you?

Mrs4444 said...

OMG-Just read your comment (at M.E.'s blog) about the short skirts in your high school. That is UNBELIEVABLE. WOW.

Tipper said...

Well soap from your shoe made me laugh and laugh : )

Yaya said...

Oh my gosh! Bubbles?

Grandma Tillie's Bakery said...

Rated the girl's chests? Hmmm, it's always the ones you least suspect...

You probably washed your shoes at one time and the soap never got rinsed out from the inside. I don't know, it's just a theory.
