Slept late!

Wow, I haven't slept this late on a school day in ages! Went to Rainforest Cafe last night with the family, drank 3 Diet Cokes and didn't think I'd go to sleep, so I took two Tylenol PMs. Wouldn't go to school today except I have a teacher coming to observe me. Thank goodness I traded duty days with another teacher!

So here's a cheat:

Dear Cats,

When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two cats in the way.

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by Nascar and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object.Tripping me doesn't help, because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king-size bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort.

Look at videos of cats sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space used is nothing but catty sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to scratch, meow or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for years, feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is lick my face, then go lick your butt. I cannot stress this enough. It would be such a simple change for you.

Thanks, Toni. The kids were of course wonderful for the first hour, then they started showing off. Oy. THEN Hector fell on the playground, so bad they needed to bring him to the nurse in a wheelchair. When I got back to class, the kids were dead silent and crying, they were so worried about him. He's just a little guy. My class has heart, at least, if no discipline.

Poor Hector! I hate duty. Oh well, you do what you gotta do...
