::waves to Judithe, my fellow co-mod::

::waves to Christina, my Bingo R2 teamie::

::waves to Rachel, my CC4 teamie::

::waves to Heather & Ming, my two new teamies::



Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Hi ladies! I'm so excited to be playing with you all, can't wait to get the game started! Judithe, great to be on a team with you again, I'm hoping its a good omen that we are teammates again for bingo ;D


message 8: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Hi everyone! *waves back at Laura & Heather* So psyched to be playing with you all!


message 9: by Laura Lulu (last edited Jul 13, 2011 12:49AM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Any name suggestions?


The Second Coming (would people be offended by that?)
Twice as Nice
Double Trouble
Twofer


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Good morning, ladies!! :D <-- more awake looking than me...

And apparently, not very creative at this hour. Hmm. Maybe later....

I see that some of the categories are very broad -- a chance to pick (almost) anything (genre-wise). Cool. :-D


message 11: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Howdy!

Reading the names, had flashbacks to the doublemint gum commercials...remember the ones with twins?

Hmmm...no ideas at the moment, but will get back to ya on that!


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Double Jeopardy
Et Two, Brute?
Terrible Twos
Two of a Kind

:D Double Mint Gum (just for Judithe)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments I like double trouble and twofer. I'm not creative at all, sorry I don't have any suggestions. Or if there is a paranormal character that would relate to 2 since it has been thrown around us all using those in our names.


message 14: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments We can pick whatever name we want, Heather, there's never been a theme before, and I don't think we're starting now. :)

Judithe, on your Doublemint theme, here's another:

Double your Pleasure :)


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Laura Lulu wrote: "Judithe, on your Doublemint theme, here's another:

Oh, I like! :D


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments I like that one too!


message 17: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments So far, I like that and Double Trouble. I, personally, am more of a trouble kinda girl than a pleasure one. Lol.


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Hmmm. I see Rachel and Ming haven't reported in yet. I wonder if they know the threads are open...

Double Trouble does sound more intimidating. Plus, it's two words.


message 19: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Ummm...like that! Not that we'll run 'round causing any trouble, but anyone trying to take us on is going to run into some! LOL

Off to see where Rachel & Ming are at!


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Judithe wrote: "Ummm...like that! Not that we'll run 'round causing any trouble, but anyone trying to take us on is going to run into some! LOL ..."

Precisely. :-)


message 21: by Ming (new)

Ming | 247 comments Hi .. sorry am I late to the party?


message 22: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Hi Ming! Not late at all, Steph won't be posting the first shelf for another 10 days. We're just getting to know our teammates and trying to think of a team name. :)


message 23: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Hi Ming! Just anxious to meet you!! :D

Where is everyone? (meaning geographically, not at this precise moment!) I'm in Western Japan, and "enjoying" a steamy summer...


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Kentucky (closest major city is Louiseville. :D In the Eastern time zone


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments I'm north of Seattle, pacific time zone. We are still waiting for summer to begin. We keep getting teased with a day here and there but back to rainy and 65 this week.


message 26: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments My family is in the PNW...have heard a lot from my sis bout the rainy weather & delayed summer on the west side of the mountains! Sis on the east side of the Cascades is thankful for a/c!

Wait...maybe I told you that before~autumn version! LOL! *think it's time to go to sleep! Hope everyone who's starting their day has a good one!*


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Summer arrived here late this year. It was stormy and overcast the first day of Summer. When it arrived, it made up for the delay. Today, it's actually a lot nicer than earlier this week. :D


message 28: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments I'm about an hour south of Chicago in Illinois, central time zone. And it's definitely summer here, high 80's and humid, and back to the 90's this weekend. Blech.


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1312 comments Well hello everyone! Boise, ID for me. Glad to have internet back!


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Rachel wrote: "Well hello everyone! Boise, ID for me. Glad to have internet back!"

Hi, Rachel! I was wondering what happened to you. :D As you can see, you haven't missed much. We're still tossing around names.

Also, you'll notice we have not one, but two of the mods on our team and both have led their teams to glorious victory recently. :-D We're so going to win this!

So, let's see:
Juidthe - Japan
Christina - Kentucky
Heather - Washington
Laura - Illinois
Rachel - Idaho
Ming - ??


message 31: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments LOL! As long as Mr. Randomizer smiles on us! GO 2 GO! (Yikes, really sad without a name! Have we decided yet?)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Judithe wrote: "LOL! As long as Mr. Randomizer smiles on us! GO 2 GO! (Yikes, really sad without a name! Have we decided yet?)"

I think a lot of us liked Double Trouble, but not everyone has said for sure yet. What about a team leader? I can't believe we have another whole week to wait, though I completely understand why, just had it all messed up in my head that it was this weekend. Dang!


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Heather wrote: "just had it all messed up in my head that it was this weekend. Dang!..."

That's okay, so did Steph. ;) Poor thing. She was worried the typhoon would prevent her from posting the shelf...this Sunday.


message 34: by Laura Lulu (last edited Jul 15, 2011 02:06PM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Rachel was on my winning CC4 team, too. :) We gots ourselves a slew of winners. ;)

Has everyone played bingo before? I'm pretty sure we don't have any SOS game noobs on our team, but maybe some of you played CC4 but not bingo yet? I could go look, but I'm lazy. ;)

Judithe and I were just going to split any captain duties that come up. I'm going to take care of the status update posts because I am an anal control freak, and Judithe will be in charge of the whip because she is a relentless slave driver. Lol. Teasing. :)

But we figured that since everyone on our team has played games here before and knows how we roll, that we really didn't need a captain. And it will work better this way, if something comes up, either of us can take care of it. And I will be on vacay in Vegas Aug 6-13, so Judithe will be manning the helm that week. But it's for a convention and hubby will be at meetings all day, so I'll have plenty of time to read my book. Don't you worry your pretty little heads. :)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments That sounds great Laura. You are correct, Judithe is excellent with her whip. She was brutal with her whip in R2 Bingo when I was on her team. Though I 'm fairly certain she never had to use it on me. Me and my pale Seattle skin were quite thankful :D


message 36: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Lol Heather! But you guys won, so I think it's best not to mess with proven results. ;)

Judithe...time to dust off the whip...


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Peeked at the other threads -- a least we're not the only team without a name. I don't think any team has gone final on their choice.

Two captains? Well, it's only appropriate, I suppose. ;) Be able to keep an eye on us 24/7 that way.


message 38: by Laura Lulu (last edited Jul 15, 2011 08:08PM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments There's not the usual rush to pick a name, since we still have 9 days until Steph posts the first shelf.

And not two captains--no captain. Just a couple of overseers. ;)


message 39: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (last edited Jul 16, 2011 05:59AM) (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments There's all that cosmic connectivity with the number two...team members have won two games, we have two overseers, our team is made up of three sets of two, our team spans two continents, and, as uni is finishing up just in time~sort of~ for the game to start, I'm bringing home my "spare" whip...just in case! *got my eye on you, Heather!*


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Judithe wrote: "*got my eye on you, Heather!*...

LOL Judithe! I'm shaking in my rain boots :D I promise to be good again, or as my daughter would say, pinky swear!

as I slink off to hide in the corner, hoping Judithe will forget all about her threat...


message 41: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments LOL!


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments Sooo....

Picked a book for the Free Space -- set it aside so I don't accidentally pick it for one of the shelves. Don't think I try to read it the first week -- unless I finish the first book in a day or two. Sort of a lesson learned from last go-around, you know.

Out of curiosity, I looked up the shelves for all the books I picked for RRRC Drinks/Cocktail Challenge. I wondered how far on the way side those books would fall during this round, because half don't fit the fantasy/paranormal genre. Thank goodness for shelves like "Read in 2010" and "4 stars".


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Christina.. that's a good idea, I think I will have to find mine soon as well :)


On another note, do we want to get our name decided on before the game starts this weekend? I am fine with whatever, but it would be nice to have something picked before we start up this Sunday.


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1217 comments I think we're still waiting on Ming and Rachel to add their "two cents". As you pointed out earlier up-thread, Double Trouble seems to be in the lead, but it's only fair to wait for them. I hope Rachel isn't having internet issues still. I had issues last round and a few times I was worried I wouldn't know the new shelf until Monday!


message 45: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Yep, we need to finalize our name--4 more days til the shelf announcement. :)

I thought of another name:

The Terrible Twos ;)


message 46: by Heather ~ Marceline (last edited Jul 20, 2011 10:38AM) (new)

Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Oh, that's good too! I like that and Double Trouble. So excited that it is only about three more days till our first shelf is announced. Without shelves being announced I just keep adding to what I am currently reading. I think I have four books going right now since I don't have a deadline. Do not worry fellow no namers :D I will be back on track before this weekend.
Would hate to see the whip brought out the first week!


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1312 comments Double Trouble gets my vote


message 48: by Laura Lulu (last edited Jul 21, 2011 05:59PM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Ok, everyone vote one last time, okey dokey?


Laura - The Terrible Twos
Heather - The Terrible Twos
Judithe -
Cristina -
Rachel - Double Trouble
Ming -


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments My vote was actually for either DT or terrible 2s but if I had to pick between the two I think I would go with terrible 2s. I think Rachel voted on DT.


message 50: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments My bad! I knew that, but I must have had a mini spaz when I typed it out. Fixing... ;)
