Two Fat Ladies, 88.

Bingo! I won an auction for a Bingo Set on eBay. Look at it. Who wouldn't want one of these?
Number 4, Knock at your Door.

On camp this year (the camp that Hubs will NOT be bringing bed bugs back from) they plan to have a Nanna Night for one of their themed dinners. The plan is for 120 kids and their leaders to dress as Nannas (Grandmothers) in old Nanna-ish clothes and blue permed wigs and play Bingo.

53, Stuck in a Tree.

Hence the purchase of balls, markers, cards and an eight inch metal rotary cage with automatic random ball selector.

31, Get Up and Run.

There is only one fly in the ointment. I'm pretty peeved about this.

42, Winnie the Pooh.

I forgot to say something important, and now I've missed my chance, I don't see that I'll get another chance for quite a while. Forever, maybe. After all, how often does one BUY a bingo set in an online auction?

17, Dancing Queen.

When I won the auction, paying all of the starting price of AU$9.99 plus $15 postage...

58, Make Them Wait.

... I forgot to jump up, punch the air, and say ...

37, A Flea in Heaven.

BINGO!!!

Idiot.

It looks like it came with two sealed packs of birth control pills. I think maybe I need to lay off of the meds and get some sleep myself here!

BINGO - you're SITS queen for a day! Enjoy. Jen.

~Sheila~ said...

Holy crap...I think I used to own one of those before.

Enjoy!

SBelle said...

trashalou said...

Curses,that is one missed opportunity there!

Congrats on your SITS nod, love your blog, and will be back!!!!

Crazy Momma said...

Hysterical! You certainly where worthy of the feature today! Great reads!

Lane Boyz Mom said...

AHHHH I need one of those for my sister! My YOUNGER sister who is sickly addicted to the game, although if we played that at home....there would be no chance of her winning MULAAH$$$$ LOL

wendy said...

That's way cool, though! I'd love one of those (but I can't say why...I don't even play bingo). :)

Jaci said...

Ebay is the best, huh? Where else can you find a bingo machine?

Enjoy your SITS love! Great blog!

Me said...

Happy SITS Day!

EmBee said...

You WIN! :-)
Um ya, but you gotta pay for it.

angie said...

I think I'm going to pee my pants. This is SO funny!

Caution said...

You sound like a total gem. Love your writing style, too.

Vicki said...

Nice rhyming for all the numbers. I couldn't have done that.

Peggy said...

I've never seen one of those. Maybe I'm not quite old enough?

Heather said...

Okay, how pathetic am I? I just read your ENTIRE bingo-related post waiting for the bit when the Two Fat Ladies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two_Fat_Ladies) came into the picture. Seriously. When you got to the part about camp, I was all "aha, so they're doing a Bad British Food theme night and will go riding in an old motorcycle with a sidecar..."

Clearly, I do not play nearly enough Bingo. Even the wikipedia entry cites the fact that "Besides describing the hosts, the term 'two fat ladies' is a bingo call for the number 88." Yeesh.

Congrats on being the SITS FBotD! :D Cheers!

Melissa Lester said...

Ha ha! Well, you won twice here with the double honor of being featured and getting the first comment. Congrats!

Congrats on the feature and your awesome bingo set.

Kristen said...

Oh my goodness, that's so funny!

Molly said...

I can't wait to be part of the blue rinse set and go play bingo at the community hall with someone called Olive!

sassy stephanie said...

Nanna night with bingo. I bet the kids got a kick outta that one! What a great idea!

Karen said...

Around here it has switched to BUNCO partys.
Congrats on your bingo set!

Party of 5 said...

SWEET! Hope you get many enjoyment out of your very own BINGO wheel.

Congrats on your SITS feature.

Kris said...

Here from SITS! Congrats on your Bingo e set win! You'll need to host a party of your own for that when the kids get back from camp!

Karen said...

Cool!! I've always wanted a bingo set !!

Have fun at the camp ... and hopefully, no bugs !

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

Y'all will probably have lots of fun with that.

Ashley said...

I wish I had a reason to buy a bingo set.... I think that may be the only reason I look forward to family reunions.

Jenni said...

Cute post! I played bingo in big hall recently for the first time. It's kind of addicting!

Creative Junkie said...

I found your blog through SITS and I'm so glad I did! Love your style. And who knew there was so much to Bingo?

Tena said...

Congratulations on being featured, your blog is great, I am enjoying my time here

Jen said...

Now, you can be the hit of the town at your local Nursing home!

Maybe the prize for winning will be a pair of your pajamas.....

I still can't get the image from my mind!
Jen

EmmaP said...

Bingo Nanny Style!!! How awesome is that??? Perhaps prizes could be things like "denture cream", "arthritis medication", "Fiber Drink",etc. Kudos to the blog, and for being Queen SITS for a day!!!

Ronnica said...

Haha! I think the last time I play Bingo was at prom (or really, the party after prom).

Michelle said...

Hey, bring that back after camp. I had a bingo set when I was in late elementary school, and it was great fun to play with all my friends for several years!

WheresMyAngels said...

I think you got ripped. I have seen them at Wal-Fart for like 9.99 and no shipping!! lol

Mama Dawg said...

BINGO-That's a clever post and a good idea for a game night at a camp.

Cara Starr said...

i haven't played bingo in ages. I always wanted to go do it at a hall with those huge markers.

~*Paty*~ said...

I buy the craziest things as well. I went to
The Something Store
just to see what kind of silly thing I would get.

Stephanie said...

You can buy the craziest, coolest stuff on E-bay!

ragdoll said...

Amy said...

Sounds like fun!

Jessica said...

HAHAHAHA!!! funny.

Perez Family Spot said...

HAPPY SITS DAY!! Enjoy the Bingo machine!

Gina said...

Have fun with that!! (sounds like you already are!!)

Hot Air said...

Congratulations- I am the most recently inducted BINGO player. I had no idea what was going on until I read the comment of one of the..uh.. commenters.. about BINGO calls. I thought I was supposed to be making sense of everything written in order! Well, "the more you know- the less you don't know."

Adiel said...

Great, I suddenly have the urge to play a game of bingo...

Lula! said...

Bingo rocks. Oh, but it does.

Mommy Cracked said...

I'm a total closet bingo lover.

Apryll said...

I have to admit...I totally love bingo.

Kimberly said...

This is too cute...I love the counting out your winnings! :) Love your blog! Congrats again on your SITS feature!

Tiffany said...

We've taken a few cruises over the years and they have some funny Bingo terms like B4...and after.

I love the idea of dressing up like old ladies!

Missy said...

I don't believe I've played bingo since I was in elementary school. I would never have guessed that you could purchase something like that.
Your bloggy name has been stuck in my head all day since I saw you were the featured blog today!

Rhea said...

Awesome bingo set up! Very cool! Have fun playing!!

Judy Haley said...

this is awesome!

Gina said...

I like your BINGO set. I hope you get to use it more than once. Or maybe you could recoup your costs by reselling it on E-bay.
Love the nanna night idea.

Tsosie and Peterson Bunch said...

I'm totally stealing the nana night idea. What fun!!! Had to read the comments to figure out the 88/two fat ladies thing. Perhaps I'll brush up on my bingo before having nana night at my house.

Kristinia - Loving Heart Mommy said...

BINGO is always such fun when there is cool prizes! :)

I came via SITS!
