I am so sorry if my spelling is awful today. I am completely knackered and I can’t spell today!
The chosen word is ‘Ocelot‘ picked by http://dailyinformant.wordpress.com
Ocelots are so cute they are like mini leopards and are totally awesome. I really want one as a pet! Ocelots are found in South America and is a similar size to a domestic cat but with the fur of a leopard. They were once hunted and killed for their fur and was classed as an endangered species from 1972-96 but is now rated as ‘least concern’.
The Ocelot is nocturnal and is extremely territorial, marking it’s territory with urine (that’s pee guys!) and sometimes feces (that’s poo!). Despite the fact that these animals normally live in the wild they can sometimes be kept as pets. The famous painter Salvador Dali kept and Ocelot named Babou.
All of the words people suggested were really good but I just couldn’t resist writing about these adorable little animals!!!
Okay my announcement!
I have uploaded my first YouTube video on my channel. It’s not amazing and I am sitting in a bathroom but it’s a start and hopefully you will all go and watch it (hint, hint). Please like it if you enjoyed and yeah…
My posts might become a bit shorter in future weeks because I am getting a ton of homework to prepare for end of year tests and it’s killing me!
Here’s the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfvK6Xt4U3w&feature=youtu.be
I am now going to have a bath and get ready to watch Broadchurch!
Guys, disaster has struck! My internet has gone super dodgy and only stays on for like 5 minutes so I am quickly letting you all know that there will not be a post today. My internet has only just come back after 2 hours!!! I didn’t know what to do with myself! Anyway I can’t stay because it’s about to switch off again so I might just have to write 2 lists tomorrow to make up for it. I will however leave you with this:
That is all. Goodnight and Goodbye

Right today’s post is going to be slightly random. I didn’t know what to write about and then suddenly I had a million ideas buzzing around my head! So I’m just going to let my mind wander and so you will probably end up with a string of random, completely unrelated thoughts and happenings! Just warning you in advance.
Okay first and foremost… THE RANDOM FLASHING DORMOUSE! Okay, allow me to explain. This came from performing at the theatre. The other day I was there and we were all dressed in our animal costumes and there is one girl who is called Devon and she’s only 6. Our costumes have had LED lights sewn into them and the battery packs are at the back and we have to turn them on ourselves. If you put the switch halfway across the lights flash and it looks like you’re having a rave in an animal costume! Anyway we were all on stage and we did this dance and then it goes to a blackout and we switch our lights off. Only Devon couldn’t get the switch across and in the middle of a pitch black theatre there was one random flashing dormouse!
Right, secondly, the flea circus. The director of the show is called Tony Lidington and is quite awesome (he has a moustache that flicks out at the ends!). Yesterday he told us that his contract had expired and was going back down to Devon until after Christmas. When we asked why he was leaving he said “Well my contract has expired and I need to get back to my flea circus,” me being the naive person I am asked what a flea circus was. I was told that it was a miniature circus that had performing fleas. I was like “Stop messing with me! Seriously, what’s a flea circus?”. I was again told that it was where fleas did tricks and stuff and that if I didn’t believe them to google it. Well today in history instead of reading about Franz Ferdinand I searched ‘flea circus’ and guess what?! Much to my amazement it is a circus that uses fleas!!! They harness them with thin gold wire and make them do tricks! Nowadays they mostly use electronics and remote-controlled stuff but there are still some genuine flea circuses! Can you believe that? FLEAS DOING TRICKS… IN A CIRCUS!
Finally, the flour cake game. If you have never played this game you must have had a very deprived childhood! Basically it’s a cake made out of flour with a sweet on the top (the best things to do it with are fried eggs or chocolate buttons) and you chop bits of the flour away with a knife and when the sweet falls from the top of the ‘cake’ the person who made the last chop has to stick their face in the flour and retrieve the sweet, no hands allowed!
Okay that wasn’t too random, me thinks. There is loads more I could say but this post is long enough so I am going to leave you pondering the concept of a cake made out of flour and picturing a flashing dormouse (not in THAT way!) and thinking about fleas so I can go and make myself something to eat!
Farvel! (that’s Danish for goodbye!)
