Yesterday was Melbourne Cup Day, the day that stops the nation. At school we had a casual day. Some people dressed up or wore fancy, strange hats. We had a class sweep. I got Profound Beauty. At home Ihad Septimus.
At 3:00 every class went to a room which had a T.V to watch the race. Everyone screams for their horse. After the race finished everyone went outside to do Fashion on the field, best hat and the horse race. I didn’t go in any because I didn’t dress up.
In the horse race 2 of my claass mates entered. They were so close to the finish when they fell over.
I know that the Olympics are on because:
I can feel …..
- the excitement in the air.
- the pride of each country as its athletes compete.
I see ……
- the flags waving around everywhere.
- all the pictures in the newspaper of the athletes.
I hear …..
- the crowd going wild.
- who’s won the medals on T.V
People wonder why Skippy? hmmmn.
The day before we got asked what do you want your blogs name to be i was watching this show where kangaroos were eating crops. Then one ofthe character go “Shoot skippy no way!” and i thought it was pretty cool so i kept saying it the next day. So my friends decided Skippy can be my new nick-name. That day we were asked what do you want your blog name to be. That’s the first thing that came in my mind.
I know, I named my blog after a line in a show. People think i’m stupid. I know!!!!!!
