Caffeinated Randomness: Seven Dwarfs and Randomness

I have a theory... it involves Snow White... actually, more specifically, it involves the Seven Dwarfs...
I believe, with very few exceptions, every emotion can be categorized by the name of a dwarf. Think about it... can you name them?
Grumpy, Happy, Dopey, Bashful, Doc, Sneezy, Sleepy... I think Hungry and Weepy are the only two emotions missing. Speaking of sleepy... below are some pictures of Lexie from when we watch college football together. She curls up next to me on my Michigan Wolverines blanket, and its a special time.
She's always in the window when I get home...
My work took me up to Vail Village today... and you can smell and taste the expectation for snow... this is Vail Mountain - no leaves, little color, it's like a child on Christmas Eve, it is so excited and ready for snow.
Have you ever been curious about Rules For Teacher in 1872... see below:
If you're unable to read some of these, they include such rules as:
  1. Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys.
  2. Each teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's session.
  3. Make your pens carefully. You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupil.
  4. Men teachers may take one evening each week for courting purposes or two evenings a week if they go to church regularly.
  5. After ten hours in school, the teachers may spend the remaining time reading the Bible or other good books.
  6. Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly conduct will be dismissed.
  7. Every teacher should lay aside from each pay a goodly sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society.
  8. Any teacher who smokes, uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, integrity and honesty.
  9. The teacher who performs his labor faithfully and without fault for five years will be given an increase of twenty-five cents per week in his pay providing the Board of Education approves.
