Lili | 297 comments wooohooo, team 18!!
hello you guys, it's great to finally have the teams ready!

I'm Lili from México, I'm a math teacher and this is my 3rd or 4th time playing BSB.. have you all played before?

Now, first things first... we need a captain and a name.
If any of you want to volunteer for captain, go for it!
I'm on vacation so I can do it if nobody wants to.

And... the name... oh God, I must admit I won't be much help here... I have little imagination and even less creativity but I'll do my best.
Maybe we could do something with the number 18... we're also the last team so... that's another option.

Looking forward to start the game!


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Hi Lili and my other wonderful teammates! I'm Heather and I live near Seattle Washington. This is my 4th time playing. I am off to work for the day but have my smart phone with me for short posts. Long posts are a pain though while I am on it. As far as a name is concerned, I am horrible at coming up with names. I have two kids, but not too young, so I still get plenty of GR and reading time for myself :) I am so excited to play with you all!

Steph (angel4492) | 28229 comments Hi, ladies! Hope you enjoy the game! :D


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Name wise the only thing I can think if is some sort of play on eighteen being the legal age for so much. See I wasn't kidding when I said I was bad at the name thing :)


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 1192 comments Hey everyone i'm Lizz and I live in Texas. I'm off to think about the name.I can't wait to start reading

Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Hello all:-) I live in Boise, ID. I've played every single round of Bingo! Never been the team captain, so I'm putting my hat in the ring for that job. I also suck at team names. At the risk of sounding ridiculous here's mine:
Bodacious Bingo Babes (haven't been able to think of anything with "18") or Bingo Addicts Anonymous (or just Bingo Addicts)


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 1192 comments 18 ton books readers


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Or 18 tons of books


Sallie(GeorgiaGirl) (shuga) | 1103 comments Hi Im in SE Illinois, near Evansville Indiana but my heart resides in Atlanta Georgia...that is home. I rather like Bodacious Bingo Babes...I'll work on the 18 theme some


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Small world Sallie- I graduated from University of Evansville


Sallie(GeorgiaGirl) (shuga) | 1103 comments Wow - i live in Lawrenceville IL & work in Mt Carmel IL - U of E is an awesome school. My friend here at work, her son just graduated & really struggled with wanting to go to U of E but just a few weeks ago decided to go to Univ of Southern Indiana. I love Eville could live there very easily. I have traveled the world lol & it really is true about being a small world.


message 17: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments *waves* Ahh...super-fun team here! Good luck with the name (I also like Bodacious Bingo Babes...but my "vote" doesn't count ;D)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments For our name, my husband suggested "18 and Life", in honor of Skid Row, hee hee.

I also found on wikipedia that in Chinese mythology, there are 18 levels of hell, so we could say something like the "18 Levels of Hell", or something less literal.

How about "18 Holes" for golf, but that just makes me giggle. Too bad there aren't 6 of us. Yikes, sorry I went there.

There is "Hanger 18" the Megadeth single. That sounds kinda cool.

18 is the atomic number of argon

As I mentioned before, 18 is also the age of consent.

My son suggested "readers" and my daughter "5 readers" :D

Just wanted to throw some stuff out there to see if it stuck or if it got anyone else going in another direction.

As far as captain, whoever really wants it, is fine with me. Lilli sounded fine if someone else was more interested, Lizz, Sallie and me didn't really mention it and Rachel sounded very interested. What does everything think? Since shelf will be called north america time tomorrow I figure we want to at least get that settled soon. Lili, what time zone are you in? Can't wait for our shelf to be called soon.

Lili | 297 comments Arizona's time zone and I actually like 18 levels of Hell.
Since it's friday night and it was a pretty rough week, I'm going out with my friends for drinks and a round of juicy gossip.
I'll drink a couple of margaritas for my team (maybe 18 to go with the theme?)

saluuuud!!


Sallie(GeorgiaGirl) (shuga) | 1103 comments OMG Lili - margaritas would be so good after the week of Hell I had at work...did u drink 18 for me - 2 & I would be under the table....lol I like the 18 levels of hell & the bodacious bingo babes....just throwing my vote in...as for team captain, I have been in that role a couple of times already so would love for someone else to have a chance....with 18 teams playing its going to be hard to keep track of the comings & goings for the teams....


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments So we have a couple of votes each for the Bodacious Bingo Babes and 18 levels of Hell. What do you think Lizz? Haven't heard from ya yet on what name you like based on the suggestions given.
Everyone okay with me being team captain?


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Yes I'm okay with you as captain Rachel. For the name I'm okay with whatever. I could swear there has been a bodacious bingo babes before but it could just be that I have seen it mentioned in previous rounds. I guess my official vote would be for hell but I will be fine with whatever the team picks.


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Well darn, and here I thought it was original;-)


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments I'm Sorry!!! There is always the chance I'm mistaken. With two kids and sliding to my 40's my memory is not what it used to be :D Again, I am good with whatever name everyone wants.


Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Rachel: BBB
Heather: 18 Levels of Hell
Lili: 18 Levels of Hell
Sallie: BBB or 18 Levels of Hell
Lizz:

No Sallie, I just had 3 tamarindo flavored margaritas and that's all I could manage... they were GOOD! but I'm not 20 anymore.
I slept like the dead and I'm happy to report there's no hangover whatsoever!

I did a little checking...
R4: Crazy Eights Bingo Babes

But that was it. I do remember some talk (maybe a suggestion~very real possibility is was from when we were on the same team, Heather) about "bodacious" in a name...

Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 1192 comments Couldn't finishing The Immortal Rules so I am going to find another book

Lili | 297 comments Finished Frostbite by Richelle Mead 06/18***

It wasn't a bad book but somehow it just wasn't great.
Maybe it's because I waited so long to read the 2nd book in the series and I forgot some of the characters... or maybe it was all the teenage drama, it was, like, super boring!

I did like to see Rose and her mom and, or course, Dimitri who doesn't really need to say anything to be cute.
I did not like the fact that the author killed a guy just so she could bring a new one to the story... it wasn't done right.
I could see it from a mile, this new guy will also fall in love with Rose and will compete with Dimitri for her and she'll be oh-so-very confused... more teenage drama...

Rachel- Goodbye Borders (rachelgoodbyeborders) | 1310 comments Finished City of Bones 6/18 3*

After looking at some of the reviews for this one, I am one of the few who think it was average. Overall I liked it. Once I got past the slow start, things did pick up. Lots of teenage angst in this one. I did think that(view spoiler)
I don't think I liked enough to continue this series.


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 1192 comments I had to pick another YA Paranormal book and it is Devoured by Amanda Marrone and I will start on my free space Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) by Kiersten White soon


Heather ~ Marceline | 994 comments Good morning ladies! I am getting though my YA, this is one of my least fav genres, but Touch of Frost isn't bad. I picked it since so many in this group liked it that don't normally like the genre and I have to sorta agree so far. I am about half way according to Mr. Kindle and it looks like it is about to pick up speed so hopefully about a day or so.

I know what you mean, I have learned to stay away from YA books, too much drama and not the kind I usually like. Luckily, I picked a pretty good book.

You have a Kindle?, which one did you get?
It took me a while to decide to buy an ebook reader, after some research I went for a Kindle 3 and I must say I'm loving it!
Since it's super thin and light it's always in my purse, the battery lasts forever and it can store a ton of books... sometimes I miss real books but then I remember I might be saving a tree or two.


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 1192 comments I am in love with my Kindle fire
