Teacher’s pet (pa dum pa dum pa dum)
I wanna be teacher’s pet (pa dum pa dum)
I wanna be huddled and cuddled as close to you as I can get
(That’s the lesson we’re guessin’ you’re best in)
~ “Teacher’s Pet” by Doris Day
Everyone has had a time when they had a crush on a teacher.. has to be. Whether it’s Miss Humphries in first grade because she’s so nice or Mr. Lawrence, your handsome gym teacher in fourth grade, who makes you giggle and feel funny inside, or even in high school, Mr. Conover, your history teacher, who is endearingly nerdy with his messy white hair and chalk on his pants and earnestness about the Gettysburg Address. Then you grow up and meet someone who teachers and wanting to be Teacher’s Pet takes on new meaning….
I surmise that to get teacher’s attention, I need to wear plaid in a cute and sexy way. This plaid is mesh—a darling new dress from sachi Vixen, who has been doing mesh for quite a while now—first in Blue Mars and now in SL. I have not been the biggest fan of mesh—I was simply not overwhelmed by it or the mesh viewers. The new Firestorm mesh viewer is almost changing my opinion as I find it infinitely more stable than before (though I still suffer from a pesky memory leak that sometimes locks me up). And sachi’s use of plaid on this outfit also changes my mind. For once mesh proves its worth as I can see my twists and turns distorting the mesh in a much more “real” manner than system pieces or sculpty. Combined with sexy thigh high socks and shoes from Onyx LeShelle, this is a smexy combo.
I wear Aranel Ah’s eensy thin black belt to divvy things up. Generally an accessory doesn’t get as much column space in my blog but I want to remark on Aranel’s customer service. When I tried to purchase the belt on Marketplace last night, my payment was returned with an error message. No big deal—I went straight to the mainstore and found what I needed. This morning I received a note from Aranel apologizing for the Marketplace muck-up with an assurance that she had no control over the problem but had contacted LL to straighten things out. Now, frankly, she didn’t HAVE to do that. I know Marketplace is sometimes unreliable—they are making changes behind the scenes that are bound to cause problems. However, Aranel’s proactive communication reflected very positively on her business and her attitude.
I wanna learn all your lips can teach me
One kiss will do at the start
I’m sure with a little homework
I’ll graduate to your heart
