Make something loud today. And let everyone know it's the last day of your year! Funny that... The Last Day. If someone had told me when I started this project about where I'd physically be on day 365 – "by the way, you'll be in the parents' basement of some Prodigy guy!" – I'd never have believed them. But it makes sense really... so many of my friends have come through ultimate, Rookie included (we only met in July of this year). So back to today. It was again more of an 'experience' than a physical thing... This afternoon i went to a friend's wine and cheese gathering in Toronto – so much fun to catch up with people I hadn't seen in a while, and there were definitely some loud moments! And now it's early evening and I currently feel like Rookie's two-year-old nephew is taking care of the 'loud' thing on my behalf as he's running around upstairs (my futon's in the basement)! Time for a short rest before going out later.
Create a new birthday song or tradition. Bonus: Get people to sing or do it at the next birthday party you attend. The set up: I was originally supposed to fly to Toronto early tomorrow morning, but unfortunately a monster snowstorm is making its way up the coasts and my flight got cancelled. Due to the magic of smartphones, I was able to rebook myself on a flight leaving tonight instead. This flight was supposed to leave at 9:40pm, but it's now 11:17pm and I'm still at the airport. Delay after delay, new departure time is 0:15 – which will especially suck for my poor friend who'll be picking me up when i land at 2am! With this in mind, below is not so much a new song, but a semi-crappy poem titled 'Ode to a delayed flight'. Oh, little plane, where could you be? You were supposed to be here hours ago I should be on my way already Close to Toronto by now Oh, little plane, where could you be? The airport isn't that cozy Watching the time go by Trying to stay awake Oh, little plane, where the f**k are you? Just get here already Just let me get on board Just fly me away
Make a rainbow from everyday objects. They can all be the same item (like book spines) or a collection of random things. Being in a hotel room tonight severely limits the material I had at my disposal, but I still managed to make a decent rainbow – mostly clothing – with my parents' help!
Use an internal organ as your inspiration today. First, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Second... Internal organs aren't very Christmas-y (my mom pulled out the heart out of the turkey earlier, I considered using it for about two seconds before my sister sent it flying into the trash can with a loud 'EWWW'!), so instead I'll feature the place cards I made for our family Christmas dinner. At 19 people, it was the largest my grandma had ever hosted – and it was a blast!
