My new favourite game is, what will the sidewalk at the hill look like on Friday mornings. What I think will be there in terms of ice/clear side walk, never lines up with what is there. Shifting gears, today was a disappointing day for our favourite game “What’s in the Bag?”
Many of the NP jokes are a “you had to be there” type of thing. Anyone CAN be there, and we definitely hang on to some of these inside jokes well past their expiry dates. (eg. the DBAD rule, Jen’s gotta go to work, etc). The whole “What’s in the Bag?” game, is so hilarious to me. If you’ve come to NP between November and today, you’ll know what it’s all about. However, if you haven’t been, it sounds like the most ridiculous thing on the planet. I’ll take that one step further. If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that there are 11 #NPbuttons that you can collect throughout the winter. A large majority of those buttons will have no meaning to most people, but everyone at NP will know, recognize or understand them. For example, one is a can of spray paint. Specifically, it is a can of Krylon Flat Black spray paint. That’s the spray paint we use to tag our shirts. Completely confusing to almost everyone else, but somehow normal to the world of NP. Yesterday, my brother sent me a screenshot of a text with one of his friends. His friend had seen a little girl wearing an NP button of me and was so confused by it that she wanted to take a picture of the little girl. She tried, but the girl’s mom gave her a strange look, because strangers taking pictures of your child is a pretty alarming thing. Anyway, the whole situation is another reminder that the world of November Project is extremely weird. It’s so weird, and I hope that it never changes. By the way, with only 2 buttons to go, and 1 month left before we’ve released them all, I’m so curious to see who has been able to collect them all. If you got the 9, or are even close with 8, we want to know about it. To me (and maybe only me), this is just as exciting as the Oilers’ Playoff race.
