Karsyn  (imzadi) About our Team:

Welcome all! I hope you'll enjoy it here on Dumbo Octopus!

When we came up with the idea of animals for team names (thanks Sonia) I claimed sea teams right away. :) I've been in love with sea animals, starting with dolphins, from the time I was a kid. I even have dolphin tattoos (2, the only ones I have, so far), speaking of tattoos! :)

But for the teams I wanted them to be unique and I knew Dumbo Octopuses (Octopi?) would be my team. I fell in love with these little guys from watching the Nautilus Live feeds at the end of the season last year. I didn't see the one that our logo is from, it was during the night when I was sleeping, otherwise I would have saw him live! Here's a gif of what he does (something flew into his eye).



You can find the whole short video HERE and you can follow Nautilus Live as well. I at least pop in a few times every day to see what they are up to.

He's definitely a cute little critter, and I hope you all like him as much as I do! :)

Karsyn  (imzadi) About Me:

Hi all!!

Thanks for joining in Wobble, and I hope you'll love being on this team! I am VERY VERY chatty and always around. I've talked to most of you at least a little bit, so I'm hoping this team will be great!

I am Karsyn. I am in my late 30s though act/feel more like I'm in my teens. I'm a child at heart and always try to keep things light and positive. I am married to my Best Friend Jesse, who I've known since we were Juniors in H.S. We've been married over 9 years now.

We both spent most of our lives in Central Fl (Him, all His life, me nearly 22 years) but moved to the mountains of North Carolina in 2012. We prefer it here overall, though we do miss getting out and doing things like we could in FL and we miss the parks, other than that, it's a better place here.

I don't work, so I'm ALWAYS around. If I'm not on GR then I'm reading or playing video games. I built a gaming PC a little over a year ago and I adore him! I named him Widget after the character in The Night Circus.

As for reading, a typical month for me is 25-30 books, though during challenges it's often more. I believe my record for a month was 56 books. :) These challenges make me competitive. I've played in 7, been captain of 5 (I think) of those, and my teams have won 2 of them. So, no pressure, but we're gonna WIN this thing! :) I will read almost anything, if it sounds good to me. I prefer action and suspense over romance and feelings. If it's a book meant to make you cry, I will NOT read it.

And I guess that's about it for me for now. You'll be seeing a lot of me over the next 18 weeks. Get used to it!! ;)

Hello Team!! My name is Ashley and I'm from Ohio. I'm 31 and I work as a RN in a 12 bed Emergency Department. Besides reading I love to watch movies, Sing along to music (badly), and play with my fur-baby, Sasha. I'm excited to meet everyone!


message 17: by Jessie (last edited Jun 08, 2016 08:16AM) (new)

Jessie Seymour (bookishjaja) | 233 comments Hi all! I'm Jessie. I'm 24, and I currently live in Knoxville with my boyfriend, Bryan. We met in Germany (Berlin) while studying abroad and have been together for four years. I just got my real estate license, and I'm planning to be full-time in it by the end of the summer. I also work as an office manager at a country club. I'm originally from the Georgia coast, so I am a beach girl through-and-through, which is why I'm SO happy to be on a sea team! I went to college in Atlanta and got my degree in public relations.

At the moment, I'm really enjoying historical fiction, especially about the British monarchy. I can't say I have a favorite author though or even favorite books. Any time someone asks me my favorite book I just say Harry Potter. It's a constant. (I'm a slytherin if you were wondering.) Other than that, my favorites change like the tide. (Pun intended.)

Other than reading, I really enjoy traveling and wine. I also love sports. Football - Atlanta Falcons; baseball - Atlanta Braves. I also love cheerleading; I cheered in college. Favorite TV shows include Survivor. I also watched Lost for the first time a few months ago and loved it. I also enjoy HGTV and Bravo.


message 18: by Karsyn (new)

Karsyn  (imzadi) Welcome ladies! So glad to have you here!!

I've updated posts 10, 11, and 12 with some info about how Dumbo Octopus team came to be, info about me, and some getting to know you questions you can chose to do (or not).

Look forward to getting to know you all over the next months!! :D


message 19: by Karsyn (last edited Jun 08, 2016 08:51AM) (new)

Karsyn  (imzadi) More about me:


╰⊰✿ Where are you from?
We're in a small mountain town in NW North Carolina. There's NOTHING here and the closest Walmart is 25 miles away. We don't have a car, so we're a tad bored here, so online stuffs (mainly GoodReads), gaming and books keep me occupied.

╰⊰✿ Are you married / single / attached?
Married to my Best Friend in the world. We consider ourselves Best Friends first, Lovers second and Husband/wife third. :) In fact I only recently got Him to remember our Wedding Anniversary, since we really don't care much about it. We mainly celebrate the day we got "back together" after not seeing each other for 7 years after high school.

╰⊰✿ What do you do?
I don't work. In the past I've done a ton of things. I never got a higher education, so have always been stuck at entry jobs, something I really regret. My favorite job was doing special events in the parks (WDW). I did that for 6 years and loved every moment of it. I miss it. I've worked in different parks (Epcot, Sea World, Islands of Adventure) and miss going all the time. It's a very different lifestyle, having WDW in your back yard.

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite genre?
My fallback genre is definitely mystery/suspense, but I will read anything that sounds good to me regardless of genre. Years ago I would have only really read romantic suspense, but I've really grown as a reader and read all kinds of things now.

╰⊰✿ Who is your favorite author?
Eh. Tricky. My former favorite author (Maya Banks) lost her spot a year or so ago and I really hadn't replaced her. :) Book wise, as in reading the most, I'd have to say Nora Roberts. Between Nora/JD I've read over 90 of her books. Other than that, I'd say Matt Reilly.

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite book? (Yes, just ONE!)
HA! How hard will this be for y'all? Not all all for me. My favorite book is The Night Circus. Has been since the day I read it, nothing has come close since!

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite movie/tv show?
Movies: The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, ST First Contact, Titanic, Twister, Cool Runnings, All Harry Potter (especially Azkaban), The Martian
TV: currently not much, just Big Bang Theory & How to get away with Murder. Formerly: NCIS (a season and a half behind, and not please Weatherly left), Warehouse 13, Smallville, Almost Human and much more

╰⊰✿ Give us 5 interesting and fun facts about you!!
1: I enjoy coloring. There's all kinds of colored pages hung up around our place, and more in a drawer. Most are of a more risque nature, rather than just normal adult coloring pages. :)
2: My love of dolphins comes from when I was a child (7 or 8 perhaps) and was picked to go on stage during a dolphin show at a small amusement park. I was pulled around in a boat by 2 dolphins and I got to feed them. I've loved them ever since. I fell in love with Beluga Whales when I worked at Wild Arctic at Sea World. I haven't gotten to swim with dolphins (something I'd LOVE to do) but have experienced them up close many times, including after Sea World was closed with a trainer there (plus, I had a secret way of getting them to come near me when it wasn't feeding time).
3: If I'm not reading, I'm playing video games on Widget. My first gaming love is Puzzle Adventure games, like Portal. But I love a variety of games. Lately I'm on a Skyrim kick, since I discovered it last year. I also love Kingdom Hearts series, Resident Evil series, Batman Arkham series, GTA San Andrea & V, Quantum Conundrum, Talos Principle, Subnautica and much more!


And just found out we have our first need of a replacement on another team, so I'll be back to fill in my last two later. :D (Or not, geeeesh I'm long winded!)


message 20: by Tia (new)

Tia (fatgirlfatbooks) ╰⊰✿ Where are you from?
Middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin, haha! I'll be relocating to Portland at the end of the year, though, which is about the polar opposite!

╰⊰✿ Are you married / single / attached?
I live with my boyfriend Adam who is an Alaskan native. He moved out here to my hometown for work and we're moving to be closer to family he has in Washington.

╰⊰✿ What do you do?
I'm a database admin at a manufacturing company. It can be a bit dull sometimes, but that's what audiobooks are for!

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite genre?
Science fiction, definitely! I also read quite a bit of science nonfiction as well.

╰⊰✿ Who is your favorite author?
If number of books read is anything to go by, Isaac Asimov. I love robots and he is one of the masters in that department, so I can't help but love him by extension.

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite book?
If I had to choose one, it'd be I, Robot because of aforementioned robot love, haha!

╰⊰✿ What are your favorite movies/TV shows?
I hardly watch any movies and the TV shows I like are mostly cartoons: Archer, Bob's Burgers, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, We Bare Bears, etc. The only "real" show I watch is The Walking Dead.

╰⊰✿ Give us 5 interesting and fun facts about you!! :)
1. Speaking of The Walking Dead, I've met Norman Reedus. He was one of the sweetest celebrities I've ever met!
2. I have two cats, Isaac and Gert. Isaac is blind (had to have his eyes removed while a kitten) and Gert has a slight spinal malformation, but they're both happy and active cats who love to meow for food at 4:30 a.m., haha.
3. I collect vintage science fiction paperbacks, including a pocket book, which is what they sent to soldiers overseas in WWII (it mentions how to help the war effort inside the book, even).
4. My hair used to reach to my thighs and I'm trying to grow it back out to that length - it's at my tailbone now!
5. I don't sleep with pillows! Yep, you heard me right - no pillows!

╰⊰✿ Give us 5 interesting and fun facts about you!! :)
1. I have the most adorable puppy known to man. I would show you, but I have no idea how to put a picture on here.

3. I went to Isesaki, Japan with my choir in my senior year of high school and it was the most amazing adventure of my life!

4. I love Dr. Pepper and chocolate, in that order.

Tia (fatgirlfatbooks) It seems that we have a pretty good mixture of genres covered here, which will hopefully make Battleship easier! I think that's the first challenge, if I remember correctly - do we really have to wait nine days to start?!

message 36: by Karsyn (new)

Karsyn  (imzadi) Well, some teams are doing a reading challenge before the challenge but the Sea Teams captains decided we'd rather take a rest of reading before the challenge. Not going to go crazy on books and get booked out before it even begins!

So, we're gonna do some getting to know you questions. We'd have come up with it sooner but I haven't been feeling well and today is the first day I've felt almost 100%.

message 41: by ♦Ashley♦ (new)

♦Ashley♦ | 1131 comments ╰⊰✿ Where are you from?
-A small town in Ohio.

╰⊰✿ Are you married / single / attached?
-I am married to my husband of...counting on my fingers...8 years. We met through mutual friends when we were 18/19.

╰⊰✿ What do you do?
-I am a registered nurse in a 12 bed ER. I love the pace and the craziness of the Emergency Department. There is always something different and you are forced to really develop your critical thinking skills.

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite genre?
-My favorite genre, since I was a teen, has been horror and thriller/suspense. I remember reading a lot of Goosebumps and Fearstreet way back when. Surprisingly, I don't seem to have very many horror books on my completed shelf. Although I will give anything that sounds interesting a shot, I prefer horror, mystery, fantasy and sci-fi. I typically don't like romance, but if there's some action involved I will give it a try.

╰⊰✿ Who is your favorite author?
-Hmmm...I don't really have a favorite. Recently I have been enjoying Jennifer Armentrout and Diana Rowland, but I don't think I have read enough to call them favorites.

╰⊰✿ What is your favorite book? (Yes, just ONE!)
-My favorite book is Watchers by Dean Koontz.

╰⊰✿ What are your favorite movies/TV shows?
-Oh geez...My favorite movie is even tougher to answer than my favorite book. A few of my favorite movies are Jaws, Anything by John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, ect), Pan's Labyrinth, and Tarantino movies (Pulp Fiction, Planet Terror, ect).
My favorite TV shows are/were Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Orange is the New Black, Sons of Anarchy, and Justified. I'm currently working on finishing Hannible and The Americans.

╰⊰✿ Give us 5 interesting and fun facts about you!! :)
1) I am a diet coke addict and have to force myself to drink water between diet cokes.
2) I am not a picky eater, but I hate olives, green and black. If they touch my food in any way I can still taste the olive juice on it and can't eat it by association.
3) We have not had cable for many years because we pretty much stream everything, but I still really miss Whee of Fortune and Jeopardy. I get really excited if I'm at my mom's house when it comes on.
4) I love to play board and card games. I once tried to count how many I own, but kept getting distracted and gave up.
5) I love to spoil my pit bull Sasha and we are considering rescuing a brother or sister for her.

I get a weird feeling of satisfaction when someone from my state is on either show and they do well! Please tell me I'm not the only one

Thanks!! We love her too!! I'll post more pics throughout the challenge if you guys want to see them;)
So happy to hear I'm with my PEOPLE...Wheel and Jeopardy lovers unite!!
That's so funny, my husband and I have competitions also when we are able to watch. I always win Wheel, he wins Jeopardy.

Absolutely not! For some reason, people from Georgia are on Jeopardy a ton, and I get very prideful. I also saw a girl in my sorority at another school on Wheel and literally died.
