I don't have a problem with you doing it Jeann but I guess we'll have to wait to see what everyone else has to say :)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments Hi Kat and Jeann! Nice to meet y'all :) I'm fine with Jeann being captain and I also like the Deadly Dozen for a name.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments I student taught 1st and 5th and actually would have preferred to teach 5th or 6th when I first started (I'm elementary, k-6 certified) but after having been in prek for so long, I don't know that I'd want the older ones now LOL of course, is take it id it meant I'd have my own classroom again :)

I am totally being nosy here but... I teach third grade and I love my third graders! This is my fifth year in third and I don't know if I'd want to change. They're old enough to get your jokes and sarcasm but still young enough to love you! You'll have fun, trust me! The only thing with third is it's the first year with state testing. Can be stressful. Good luck! There isn't a better job in the world!

Marketing, Jeann? The first time I went to college I majored in public relations and took several marketing classes. I enjoyed them. I didn't do anything with them though LOL I ended up staying home with my children :)

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Well it's nice to hear that everyone loves their jobs I work in a restruant as a cook it's fun work although it's a little to hot in the summer when your working in a 100 degree kitchen for 6 to 7 hours :)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments My husband would like to open a restaurant. I love to cook, but I don't think I'd like to do it in a restaurant setting LOL

message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

it's not to bad actually It can be a little crazy at times especially in the summer which is your busiest time of year a couple of week ago I put through 450 people in one evening, I was never so happy to go home after that shift I can tell :)

I've been checking out the SOS bookshelf for my free space book choice and I've come up with 2 that I think I will consider,

Sunrise at Sunset (Sunset Vampire, #1) by Jaz Primo I got this one for free from Kobo this morning:)
Ashes (Ashes Trilogy #1) by Ilsa J. Bick I added this one to the SOS bookshelf shelf myself yesterday after pickin it up at the bookstore and thought I'd share it with the group:)

message 27: by Susan (susayq ~) (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments I'm going to go with one of these for my free space -

Spectre (Zoe Martinique #2) by Phaedra Weldon I added this one LOL books 1 and 4 were already on the shelf.

The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld, #1) by Gena Showalter I have the 2nd one in the series lined up for another challenge and I want to read them in order.

Kiss of the Rose (The Tudor Vampire Chronicles, #1) by Kate Pearce just because I want to read this one ;)

message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

Hopefully we will hear from our other team mates sometime today so we can move ahead with picking a team name and voting on a captain :)

message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

well poo one of the other teams is using Deadly in there team name, what about The Dozen Deadly Divas as a name it's got a ring to it I think :)

Yup, it helps me unleash my creativity and it's satisfying seeing the results of your hard work in the end.

No doubt you'll have amazing skills in the kitchen Kat! :) I love food, so much lol.

The Dozen Deadly Divas is awesome!

message 32: by [deleted user] (last edited Sep 13, 2012 03:05PM) (new)

I'm a little worried we haven't heard from our other teamies yet should somebody PM them just to be sure everything is still good with them playing?

I thought you gals would like that name :)

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Nawww Jessica thanks a lot!

I didn't actually realise myself that Bingo had started until I saw some GR friends commenting on the new threads. Perhaps we can just gently let them know? I can PM them later if you want :)

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

I'd say we give our missing teamies until Saturday before we start to get to worried and I also vote that Jeann can be team captain :)

message 35: by Susan (susayq ~) (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments AH just asked what to do if team members haven't checked in and the answer was to PM them and if they still haven't checks in by shelf announcement time, the mods would have a discussion about what to do.

message 36: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments :D Yep. And probably, sooner is better!

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Just PMed Ceri, does anyone know which Amy it is?

There's 3 different Amy's: Amy ~Lover of Books~, Sassy Amy, and Amy Wessel.

message 38: by Susan (susayq ~) (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 247 comments It's Amy Wessel, if I read correctly and clicked the right links LOL

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Awesome, thanks for your sleuthing skills!

It looks like I'm unable to message her because she's turned off messages from her profile. We'd just have to see whether she checks in, otherwise we'll let the mods know.

message 40: by Ceri (new)

Ceri (allforbooks) | 46 comments hello

message 45: by Ceri (new)

Ceri (allforbooks) | 46 comments thanks for the welcome, i can't wait to get started, do we all read the same book or just a book that fits the square??

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Welcome Ceri, glad to see you've made it! Basically the shelf gets called in a particular subject. We then each pick a book to read that is on the same shelf. Feel free to ask any questions along the way!

So are we all happy with the name: The Dozen Deadly Divas?

message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

No, you get to pick your own book from the shelf that's called

message 48: by Ceri (new)

Ceri (allforbooks) | 46 comments sounds good
