all of these lines across my face, tell you the story of who I am...

I recently started listening to a podcast called The Moth. It turns out that the podcast is just a snippet of this incredible story-telling series that has been going on for over 10 years in New York City. Each week, the podcast highlights one of the stores from their live series. The stories average about 10 minutes in length and each is completely riveting. Some are hysterical, some incredibly sad, some inspirational, and some just plain bizarre, but each of them leaves me wanting more. I think it's partly because the way they are told: true stories told to a live audience by the people who lived them. It's also because of the range of story-tellers, from the average joe to the famous authors, actors, comedians, etc. It brings us all down to the same level. Everyone is just another person with another story to tell.

Ordinarily you will need no more than three or four cards. A display board or a caller will flash your bingo numbers and you will need to fill the pattern displayed to win the game.

Some people find this automation a kill-joy but some actually love the fact that all they have to do watch for the bingo flash!!!
