Sending my list in, Pam. I chose things that were either significant for whatever reason OR things that just plain struck me as funny!

Thanks for getting your lists in quickly Neefer, Lennie & Mom of Six, I was able to get them set up on the spreadsheet! Hopefully this will be easy-peasy but I do have to use paper numbers as I can't find a program on my computer to randomly spit them out.

I hope we have a lot more lists sent in so we can have a big game. I'm not playing September but I'm still reading the posts, sounds like it's getting close to a winner. Barb, I miss some of the shows that you're posting especially Simply Quilts!

I use http://docs.google.com
They have a spreadsheet option that includes the random number function (like excel =rand() )

Momquilts, you do not have to keep track of everyone's words. You just need to keep track of what words were called, and when someone calls bi go, you verify that they indeed have one. Some people do keep track, but Don,t feel like you have too.
