How to Play Internet Bingo!

No, our blog hasn’t been hijacked or hacked and this isn’t about some internet gambling site.  This is about something that most people deal with every day and probably don’t even know it.  I first ran into the idea in Childfree circles and discovered that it pretty much applies to everybody in one way or another.

It’s called Internet Bingo.  There are many forms of this “game”.  It happens online and offline and it certainly happens to all of us.  Trolls do it to us, well- meaning friends and family do it to us, even strangers do it to us.  You know what you get when you fill your Bingo card?  Congratulations, you’ve just been “Bingoed”.

ETA the Second:

While twitter brought us the above image, it didn’t bring an attribution… immediately.  Thanks to the link to this post getting around the original artist got in touch with me and I can credit the original image to ROCOM.  You can find ROCOM at that link, which goes to tumblr, or on twitter @rocom

This is what the original image looks like.

Valentine roundup

On the day I wear black and refer to as The Crispus Attucks St. Valentine’s Massacre Memorial, the rest of the world celebrates Hallmark’s day and overspends on chocolate, jewelry, flowers, and all things pink and red.  Last year we presented valentines in this space of a special variety.  This year we’ve gathered some of the best that showed up in our Twitter feed.  And by “best” we mean Geekiest.  Enjoy.
