A fancy dress competition and Building a Den.

Extracts from this document...


::::::Fancy Dress Competition::::: "What in your mind do you think you are doing?" inquired my fuming "red-with-anger" drama teacher, when she caught me fiddling with my costume. "Nothing Ma'am. Trying to tighten this little thread", came my fraudulent reply. She was furious with the way I was behaving in my new and highly-prickling apparel. But what could I do? It wasn't five minutes that I had put on the costume and I found that I was scratching myself all over, thanks to the highly itchy and "supposed-to-be panda" attire. And I wasn't the only one who felt this, I soon realized that all of my friends were equally appalled by their new costumes too. The drama teacher had a look of absolute disgust on her face. Nevertheless, all of us were equally excited about the competition. Iridescent attire adorned the school ground . All of us had turned up at the fancy dress competition dressed imaginatively. The costumes, the experimentation with our appearance, the thrill of the competition , a break from the walled classroom learning , all intensified the buzzing at the school ground . Honestly speaking, I am no fan of "fancy dress competitions", although I had experienced people showing tremendous interest in these competitions and dressing up as perfectly as possible; and I really give credit to their spellbinding efforts. ...read more.


7. Have a laptop in your closet so you can "secretly" play games (And pretend like you're at work like a scientist or something...) To show how secretive you are. 8.

We cut windows from the walls and hinged them, and designed and made a flag for the roof. We used an extension cable to take electricity out there, for lights and laptop. We spent hours shredding packing polystyrene to fill beanbags that we designed and made ourselves. We built a trapdoor to size, and bought a lock for it for the inside, as well as a number lock for the outside. We bought a bell, and when we won a round puzzle in a competition, we glued it to our Round Table. We quickly began to aquire more and more puzzles, which we used to decorate the ceiling. We patched up the holes that were left from building, and created a mechanism for getting the dog up into the den despite the ladder. We bought a funky bin, and some bowls and cups for coke and chocolate and icecream. This year was a late autumn. It is January, almost February and the leaves are still falling from the trees.. Usually we have finished the raking and mulching by now, but this year it is different. With all the layers of leaves in our back yard, it reminds me of another time, when the leaved and the pine straw fell late one autumn.
