Happy World Book Day everyone! I hope your day has been wonderful and cheerful and fantastic. At our school, every year when World Book Day comes around, the sixth formers dress up as their favourite book characters and preach to year sevens why reading is good. However, most of my year group are illiterate and have probably never read a book in their lives. This is why only twelve out of 300 year 12s and 13 actually bothered to dress up. I am one of these people. I came as Jeane Smith of 'Adorkable' by Sarra Manning (please see post titled "Tag!" to read why I love her). Other characters included "anonymous Hogwarts student", Luna Lovegood, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, The Undead Magician, the Joker and a mysterious fortune teller.

I also made my hair purple with that coloured hair spray paint stuff you can get from any party shop. This was honestly the highlight of my day but people thought I had genuinely dyed it.
When we went and spoke to year sevens to tell them how great reading is and that they should deffo do it often, one boy's excuse for never reading was that his "arms get tired from turning the pages all the time". He was obese and I had to bite my tongue to stop myself from asking him if his arms get tired from lifting all that food to his mouth too. Probably wouldn't have gone down well!
Oh, and I did promise to upload a lovely snap of my MUTILATED leg from the football match on Sunday. Perhaps this is a slight exaggeration but it still hurts a lot and the swelling hasn't gone down. It doesn't actually look that impressive in the photos though:
The cut is about 15cm long and isn't actually that deep but it stiiiiings! Also, the bruise (which continues out of shot on the right hand side) was bright purple like two days ago - I should have totally got a photo of it then!
Song of the day:
Playwright Fate - I Blame Coco
My love for Coco is out of dis wurld.
