Friday Rejection Bingo & Got Green?

I saw this on Kristin Nelson's excellent blog earlier and thought it was a fun way to end the week.

The folks over at Writer's Digest have found a way to put our rejections to good use--by playing Bingo with them!

Click on over to see what they came up with - you know you want to!

Don't you just love the frownie face emoticon?

I think it's interesting that so many of the squares are paper-based when most rejections are via email these days. What would you add for the email Bingo card?

In an early St. Paddy's day toast, Mark Koopman's Got Green blogfest kicks off today!

One of my favorite St. Paddy's traditions is to watch our local parade with friends. We take over the balcony level of an Irish restaurant that serves free baskets of Lucky Charms - Yum! It's right on a corner, so we get to see the parade twice as it turns, and there's a sneaky side-door we can use to run out and grab any prizes that are being thrown.

I traveled to Ireland a few years back and LOVED IT! You can see my thoughts and pics from last year's Got Green post here.

Hope you have a Craic-filled weekend!


  1. Now that's one way to turn lemons into lemonade.

  2. I'll have to go check that out - sounds weirdly fun :)

    Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and yours :)

  3. Rejection Bingo is pretty funny. Well, if it didn't hurt so much to play. :P

  4. How funny! Have a fun St. Patrick's Day!

  5. I have to work St Pattie's Day. Hope you have more fun than I do.

  6. Rejection Bingo! Hilarious! I'll have to remember to wear green on Sunday. Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

  7. Now that's recycling at its finest, lol!

    I could never handle Lucky Charms, but I can sing most of the commercials. My niece has a shirt that says "Kiss me. I'm magically delicious!"

  8. I had a rejection addressed to Mr. Lindenblatt once. Ironic considering agents are fussy about us getting their name and gender correct.

  9. I am not aware of any local parades, but we do make sure to have some corned beef on hand. Hmm ... beef ... :)

  10. That sounds like a great time! One day, I'm going to Ireland, one day.
    Thanks for sharing.

  11. If there were a few more "form letters" spaces, I'd have Bingo! Haha.
