Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Hideho, teammies! Hope everyone's ready to win this round of BSB! Miss Judithe's won three times already and I've yet to place. ;)

Looking forward to chattin' and readin' along with everyone. I'm pooped and can't think of any good team names at the moment, so I'll throw out some suggestions in the AM.

Nite, ya'll!

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments Hi everyone, I'm looking forward to reading with you!

I can't think of names right now either but I'll put some thought into it.

Hopefully Mr. Randomiser will be good to us this round.

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I am so excited to get started! Steph I think we have been on a team before and Amanda we have too. :)


message 10: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments I've played Connect 4 with Heather.

I sent you a friend request Regina.


message 11: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I just accepted michelle, thanks for the invite!


message 12: by Amanda A (new)

Amanda A | 812 comments Hi ladies, can't wait to get started! I'll try to be thinking of names. I'm not very creative though.

I think I have been on a Bingo team with everyone except Heather. I sent you a friend request, Heather.


message 13: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments Hi Amanda!

I wasn't sure if it was you :)


message 14: by Desperado (new)

Desperado (lethallovely) | 1360 comments Hey Team! Amanda, you and I were on the same team for the first EVER round of BSB, which we won! Woot woot! Methinks it's kismet.

Steph! Hey girl hey! Six rounds of BSB & this is the first time we've been on the same team! Yay!

I am McUseless when it comes to thinking of team names, so I'll let you ladies handle that part.


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Thanks for the request Amanda, and thanks for accepting my request Regina. Lethal, I just sent you one as well.

Michelle, it's great to be on your team again, since Connect 4 was so quick, it will be nice to enjoy it a little longer this time. I was on my cell phone earlier today so it was just a quick message to you all. I'm pretty bad at coming up with creative team names.

This is my fifth round to play and I'm really excited about our team.


message 16: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Woohoo! Happy to see all of my teammies have stopped by to say hi. Looks like I'm a bit late to the party. But, HI YA'LL! :D

Names, names, names ... let's see. I liked T10's X (Roman numeral) last round. Maybe we could do something similar? They were called X-treme Readers, so we should avoid that one.

Some words with TEN in them that we could use:
Tenacious
Tenacity
Tenfold
Ten-gallon (hat) LOL! Yeehaw!
Tendency (to ...)
Tender(ness/ly)
Tenderize (hehe -- meat beaters LOL! Sorry, who's got a dirty mind? ☛ This girl! ☚)

Or we could go bookish or paranormalish. I'm open.

Anyone wanna lead us to victory? Captain'o Captain, who art thou?


message 17: by Michelle (last edited Sep 13, 2012 04:05AM) (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments LOL Steph!

I was reading your post and when I saw the X all I could think was X-rated Readers, then XXX... Figured it was just to early for my brain...

Nearly choked on the Meat Beaters and was suddenly glad my mind wasn't the only one that went to the gutter :)

I'd rather somene else was Captain in this round, I think it's going to be a good one though cause I know you all love to read as much, if not more, than me!

I so need to wake up - I'll think...

Avenged Tenfold? (Nothing at all to do with the A7X wallpaper on the laptop).

EDIT: I'm wake now, I shall try to think of names


message 18: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I like Tenacious. :)

I am very uncreative. Sorry ladies :/


message 19: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments My mind spends most of it's time in the gutter. I try to drag it out while I'm chatting w/the group, but ya know sometimes there just isn't time. ;) Everyone should join me and then we can call ourselves the Gutter Girls.

I'd also rather pass on donning the captain hat, if possible. Anyone interested in being the task master?

I love A7X. One of my favorite songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbFFGO... :D

I'm cool with whatever name everyone agrees on. Anything that will look nice on our winner's banner would be good. ;)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments If I can be given some instructions on posting on the stamp thread, I wouldn't mind being captain. However, if someone else REALLY wants to do it, I don't want to steal their glory.

As far as our name, I like a lot of the suggestions, both gutter worthy and not.


message 21: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments If no one else wants the spot, I'm happy to answer any questions or offer any help re: posting on the stamp thread, Captain Marceline. :D


message 22: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments You'll do great as captain! I can help you with the posting too if Steph isn't around :)

I do like the Gutter Girls. This morning my mind is pretty clean and thought of Tender Hearts. Go figure!

I will be having a look at which song you like once I get on the laptop. I am awfully curious.


message 23: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Oh Steph, do you like it just for the tentacles????? LOLOLOLOLOL


message 24: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments LMAO! No tentacles, S'il vous plaît.

Aw, Tender Hearts is good too, Michelle. Hmmm, dirty or sweet? How's a girl to choose.

My A7X favorite is an older one. :)


message 25: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Sandra!! I thought we'd placed a ban on all things tentacle-related? Naughty for bringing them up!


message 26: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Right?! You tell her, Josie, she doesn't listen to me. >;)


message 27: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments It's not an old one, it's a classic! I do enjoy it though, even have it on Singstar :)

Twisted Tentacles?


message 28: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments I wasn't the one that posted the clip with tentacles, Josie!


message 29: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Lol, you know I don't think I've ever forgiven Ames for posting that picture *shudder*... and I don't think I've ever forgiven myself for bringing up my fears of tentacle porn...


message 30: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Desperado (lethallovely) | 1360 comments A Witch's Beauty (Daughters of Arianne, #2) by Joey W. Hill <-----TENTACLE SEX (but not nearly as squicky as I thought it would be. Mina is teh shit)

I like Twisted Tentacles.


message 34: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Oh butter wouldn't melt, would it Ames? ;)

You know Lethal, if I put my trust in you and read it, maybe I could finally be at peace with tentacles. It could be my rehabilitation book. In fact, I think it should be a group read.


message 35: by Amanda A (new)

Amanda A | 812 comments Ya'll are cracking me up with all of this talk about tentacles.

Twisted Tentacles is pretty funny, and I kinda like it too! :-)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments I think Twisted Tentacles is hilarious and the ick factor it will cause others just that much funnier.


message 37: by Steph, Serious series addict (last edited Sep 14, 2012 09:38PM) (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Oh my goodness! See what you've done, Sandra!? LMAO! Are ya'll really waiting for my vote to name our team Twisted Tentacles? (ROFL! I wrote testicles first ... both are just wrong) But, what the hell, if that's what the group decides, I'll go with it and ignore the ick factor. ;)

I SO much rather we go with something like Gutter Girls.


message 38: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Hehehehee I LIKE Twisted Tentacles, so much classier than Gutter Girls (unless you go with testicles) :DDDDDDDD


message 39: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments Tentacles or Testicle's it's a tough one!

I am really sorry Steph but in my defence I had no clue that Tentacle's squicked you all until after I suggested Twisting them. I thought you where all throwing it out as a suggestion :)


message 40: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO with Sandra! *Can I use my ninja powers to just change it, Sandra, can I? Can I please? No use asking Steph...sure she'd veto....*


message 41: by Desperado (new)

Desperado (lethallovely) | 1360 comments Can we be Twisted Tentacles? Please, Steph, PLEASE? Please with Mantitties on Top?

@ Josie: I'd be more than happy to read AWB with you. I haven't reread it in a few years. Yes, the heroine Mina has tentacles (way to go, Hill, for taking that risk!) but she is possibly the most tortured heroine ever without being annoying as hells about it. She's also one of the most unconventional heroines, what with missing an ear, fingers and lots of scars.


message 42: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments I vote for Twisted Tentacles too! Not that it actually counts... :P

She sounds my kinda girl, Lethal! The author definitely gets credit, it's like the authors who make a zombie their hero/heroine, it takes guts. Do you think it'd be a good idea to read A Mermaid's Kiss first?


message 43: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments FIRST SHELF is kick-ass-heroine!
Time to get your BSB game face on.

Allllriiiiight. If everyone agrees, we'll be the Twisted Tentacles, even though they (tentacly sea creatures) have eight "arms", not six. Seriously though, I'd rather be called Octopussy (Bond film title for all you babes and non-Bond girls). LMAO! I can't believe we might have a "Twisted Tentacles" tagline next time I log on. But, it was LL's Mantittied-topped treats that broke me, so I blame her. >;)

BTW, we're getting hammered by Typhoon Sanba. We haven't lost power, but our water pressure is nil. I'm guessing the tank, which is on the roof, has thrown her hands up to the storm gods and died. Hopefully the power will hang tight. If not, I'll be offline (other than cell, as long as the charge lasts) for the duration. Be back soon with my shelf choices, but won't start reading until I've finished my current read. Ya'll be thinkin' of your free space choice as well. I always like to get that one outta the way early on, so I don't have to worry over it later.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy Reading, TTs. LMAO!!


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments So that we can start posting everyone's book choices, what are everyone's thoughts about captain? I know Michelle and Steph both answered, but Lethal, Amanda and Regina have all been quiet on the topic. Does anyone else want to do it or have issue with me taking it on? Since the shelf has been called, if I was going to be captain I wanted to go ahead and start listing info.


message 45: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Rats! I was sorta-kinda-not-really (b/c it's the final book of the series - I really wanna read it, but I really don't want the series to end) hoping Endgame was there, but nope 1 person shelved it as "kick-ass-heroine s ", but not our shelf. :( I did find Haunted (Anna Strong Chronicles, #8) by Jeanne C. Stein and Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires, #6) by Chloe Neill , so I'll most likely read one of them.

Not sure yet on my FS book, I'll let ya know what I choose.

Turning the computer back off in hopes of pleasing the power gods into keeping our power on throughout the storm. ;) Catch up with ya after it has blown over.

Go for it, girly! :D If they'd wanted the Cap Hat, they'd have staked a claim by now I'd recon.


message 47: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments OH my goodness! I missed 27 posts! I was buried in finalizing an appellate brief and then coached soccer all day today. Sorry! Tenacious (???) Ten, I am here! I love this shelf. Off to read the posts.


message 48: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I like twisted tentacles too, stay say Steph!

Heather please be captain! I just can't right now, thank you so much for doing it.


message 49: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I am thinking of these (ummm too many choices I think!):

Easy by Tammara Webber Rebel Heart (Dust Lands, #2) by Moira Young House of Cards by C.E. Murphy Urban Shaman (Walker Papers, #1) by C.E. Murphy Finding the Lost (Sentinel Wars, #2) by Shannon K. Butcher Wolf's Glory (After the Crash #2) by Maddy Barone The Dead of Night (Tomorrow, #2) by John Marsden Gone (Gone, #1) by Michael Grant The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures, #1) by Jennifer Ashley


message 50: by Heather ~ Marceline (last edited Sep 15, 2012 05:14PM) (new)

Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Okay, I went ahead and posted our shelf lists in post 8, I am just going to assume that is okay :D

I will be reading Kiss of Snow for Kick Ass Heroine.

Steph to help with the Tentacles, I went searching for picts for you, it is both hysterical and disturbing what you can find out there... I thought I would find you a tentacle picture that wasn't so icky. Let me tell you, it was hard to find one....
