World Book Day, or how to embarrass yourself in front of four hundred children
 Yes, in case you didn't realise it, yesterday was World Book Day.  As I've mentioned in reply to Dr Evil Fairy's interesting post yesterday, our school went all out this year, one of our many activities being dressing up as a character from a book or comic (or film because some of them never realised that some of these films were originally books).  As I am a shy and retiring type, I opted for a character from the Batman comics, of a feline nature.  In case you think you've happened upon some sort of dive in deepest Berlin look again . . .



I presume yout students toed the line yesterday, especially watching you wield you whip.

What a hoot!

You look great!

Well, not that great, but it was a laugh. The only problem was being able to see my way round the school without my glasses. I bet catwoman never had that problem . . . but Catwoman's grandmother obviously did.

it's a look that really suits you.

i usually went as Arthur Dent to world book day [you get to wear pyjamas and a dressing gown all day - excellent]

Yeah, quite a few of the kids came in pyjamas. We had a lot of fairies/princesses, footballers, Harry Potters and a few 'Where's Wally' impersonators, as well as many varieties of witch and a few animals. The best person in my class was a girl dressed as Cruella Deville from 101 Dalmations - amazing wig!

Yes, of course, you look great! I am going to tell my fellow teachers about the world book day!

Thanks, I should really know better, but everyone was very kind, at least to my face! It's a great thing to do, and I was impressed at how well the children responded.

Well thats a bunch of kids we can assign to the dark side in their teens ... LOOOOOOVE it! emmm did S like the look or did he run screaming?

Snorting now. I have to admit that wearing the plastic round his neck, my dear S purchased the whip, ears, mask and (sadly not seen on photo) the long tail for me in said weirdo shop in Ipswich.

Later that evening . . . he was even heard by me to say as I was falling asleep, 'goodnight catwoman' . . . and they say vicars are boring . . .

Headline in The Ipswich Rag: 'Local vicar seen in *** shop buying leather whip, mask, ears and tail'

I'm sure his parishioners all shook their heads and said in unison "Rosemary!"

P.S. Did you see my new IllyaCon that Toggy made me. See

Oh yes, I am very jealous. I would LOVE something like that! Or even better, someone like that!

How true. Like you, they know me well.

Lol! Brave woman!

[I'll bet you could make a little money on the side dressed like that. Especially with the whip... just sayin']

Oh gosh! I can't wait for our Rosy to see this.

Ha! Every near pensioner should have fun once in a while. I won't even go where you're suggesting . . .
Worryingly,some of the kids in my class asked me if I'd whip them . . oh dear. Good job the school inspectors weren't near.

Why, Miss Rosy! Meeee-oowwwwww. You're the baddest cat in leather pants. :D I bet Mr. Rosy was impressed. LOL

Sadly, he purchased said acoutrements from local 'dressing up' shop wearing his dressing up clothes (i.e. the white plastic round the neck etc.
