Halloween Bingo Update, October 29; Another Halloween Bingo, done and dusted.

Well, the bingo gods strung me out to the very end, but with today’s call of Reclics and Curiosities my bingo card is complete and I have all the bingos.

I had a lot more fun with Bingo this year that I feared I would back in August, when my reading mojo, and just my overall life mojo was in a perilous state.

Taking a new approach to the game helped revive my enthusiasm to a degree, but by far the most uplifting and energising act I took was working with Christine and Themis-Athena to create a new, private site where the old BL gang could once again join together in an environment conducive to both games and general book conversations.  We’re all drowning in optimism now and I hope this is the start of a new era of bibliophilism for me.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. So that must be the project you mentioned in another post. Well, congrats on getting it off the ground! I hope it fuels your biblioitus and keeps your book game going.

    I must say, that skull background for your bingo card is wicked creepy…

    1. So far, things are looking promising. It’s only been ‘launched’ a few days but I have lots of reason to hope. 🙂

      And yeah, that was by far the creepiest card cover I’ve ever gone with, but it fit my mood at the time. Next year, I think I’ll be back to cartoon fun.
