Port Blandford

Another quickie today- NaNoWriMo rolls on, and I have a headache. I showed up, don’t expect coherence or understandableness, ok?

So, Port Blandford. It’s a town we pass on our way to St. John’s, just another “WTF, NL?” town name (see also: Dildo). We’ve made a game out of it, because the drive is 4 hours long, and it’s fun. It has no official name; I’ll call it Port Blandford Facts.

Did you know…

– In Port Blandford, they eat their Kraft Dinner without the cheese.

-Port Blandford’s town flag is a taupe cod on a field of taupe.

-Someone once got shunned in Port Blandford for painting his house beige. It was too exciting.

Get it? It’s bland. (I didn’t say it was an exciting game, but I look forward to it.)

-the library in Port Blandford has no Fiction section.

-The only cheese they serve in Port Blandford is mild cheddar, and ketchup is a controlled substance.

Yeah, I’m done. Add your own in the comments. Maybe I’ll get a picture of the sign on the way by next time. It’s SUPER exciting.
