OK, so I got back from camp a week ago.
It's been a really busy week, starting school & stuff.

Camp was pretty cool, but nothing extraordinary happened.
I basically just chilled with friends & had very little sleep (1.5 hours on the last night).
I couldn't find a use for the smoke bombs etc, so I'll have to save them for next year.

The place we stayed at had a crazy dog that had an affinity for shoelaces.
It started when one of my friends (we will call him 'K') decided to feed the dog chappies (I advised against it, telling him that it will probably kill it. I wish.) A few minutes after K gave the dog its first taste of flavoured rubber, it went ape. The dog chomped onto K's shoelaces and refused to leave them. I, naturally, laughed hysterically at the dog & K's predicament.

The dog didn't seem to like that.

It abandoned K and made its way towards me. I got the idea, and bolted down the hill.
Unfortunately our canine friend was a bit of a runner, and I had a bit too much confidence in my ability to land from high jumps.
I "landed" (in some versions of the story I "fell") and rolled into a pole.
The dog promptly landed next to me and attached itself to my shoelaces, where it stayed for the next 15 minutes, much to the amusement of the growing crowd.

Eventually the dog let go of my shoelace for an instant in order to get a better grip on it. I took my chances and made another run for it, but this time I decided to use my intelligence over the dog :D
I ran towards a huge tree, and as we (the dog & I) passed the tree, I stuck my arm out and held onto the tree, doing a 180.
I then ran back up the hill, into the games room and jumped to safety, on the pool table.

Yes, I am ingenious.
