Hello again

I have been asked but I can't say by who to start this thread...

Area any of you familiar with the ZING???

As i understand it some of you will be getting a Little surprise in your mailbox soon and when your ZINGED (or would it ZONGED) you need to report in here
so we can all here about it :teeth:

If anyone is more familiar please feel free to post more details
or PM me and I will edit this

Happy Zinging....... :cool1:

I remember when people used to get zinged over there :)! I also remember people who sent others the pin they NEEDED to complete a set - like my Mississippi pin :)!!

or it at least it was over on the collectors board, someone mails you a "zing" and you in turn mail someone else a "zing", you post here to let everyone know you were zinged....:)

Is this similar to a RAK? Random Acts of Kindness
Where you actually send a small present to someone and then they are to share the kind spirit and RAK someone else.

I believe it is the sound your hair makes when you accidently stick a screwdriver into the outlet where you plug in your dryer. It is usually followed by the smell of burning ozone and the sensation that the fillings in your teeth are melting. At least that's how I felt.

Yes, Spinning, that is how it worked on the Collector's board among pin traders.

Ok I'm jumping on the band wagon. This sounds like so much fun but I too wonder where the addresses come from?

12-06-2005, 11:35 AM
:wave2: I can help....

Yes its your real mailbox...and its a little goodie (we did pins) something craft related or cooking related would work for this board I am guessing.


Sigh..... :confused3 this is more complicated then I thought.....

Ok I didnt want to tell the secret but I guess I will have too.......

I sent out two zings yesterday to two people whos addresses I had from prior mailings....So I am the Zinger.....:) The first in a list of many I HOPE

Kayla was being sweet in helping me try to keep it a secret for me but I can see there are too many ?s. So I am confessing.

I was bummed by all the sad people here lately and wanted to put some fun back into the board.....so I revived an old favorite from the collectors board.

So here I am confessing....my secret.... :teeth: two of you will recieve a goodie this week....ZING

If you want to play along, send me your home address in a pm...then if the new zingers (those who recieved a goodie) need an address they can contact me via pm for someone on my list.....so if you want to play along and don't know if anyone has your snail mail addy, send it to me...maybe you will be next on the list to be ZINGED

Happy Zinging.... :earboy2:

For fun


Zing: a little gift delivered secretly to a fellow board member to bring happiness and delight.

Zinger: The person sending the little gift.

Zingee: The person recieving the little gift, thus now becoming a Zinger when they in turn send a little gift to another board member.

Zing Hostess(Queen of the Zing) :teeth: : Keeper of the addresses for those who want to play

How Come we Zing:because its fun!! The same reason we all became friends here on the DIS board, because its FUN!!!

I am sure Jeff could have come up with better definations for the terms, but I do lack creativity when it comes to writing.

So off we go gang.....

zing your it!

Zing - what you do in the zhower when you think no one else is in the bathroom. You know, zing a zong. Those who are vocally challenged should bring a bucket in order to carry the tune.

Zinger - a type of sewing machine made in Zwitzerland

Zingee - the vowel right after the Zingaa

Zing Hostess - A battle of biblical proportions between Twinkies and Zingers (the chocolate cake not the sewing machine). This is sometimes called the Thrilla in Vanilla.

How Come we Zing - We tried zigging and we tried zagging but no one want to see someone zagging as it reminds us that we need to go to the gym.

Cindy, you really didn't want me to come up with definitions did you?

Of course I did...I knew they would be way more fun than mine :rotfl:

By the way....I was thinking of you the other day when I decorated my tree....there is a Arizona Diamondbacks ornament there that reminds me of your family and all the pin fun we have had.....:)

OMG!! I thought Trina was the only one stuck with an Arizona Diamondback ornament on her tree! Her Hallmark ornaments are probably on the back of the tree :)

Jeff, no grandbabies yet :)?!!

Not only do we have Diamondbacks ornaments on our tree but we have a Diamondbacks tree topper!

You can see it a little better up close.

Needless to say, Trina was not very happy with my Christmas decorating. I probably could have gotten away with it but once again I went a little over the top and decided our nativity scene needed some help so I went to work on it.

I really don't see what was so wrong with it. After all, even baby Jesus needed some protection in the line-up. And seriously, what says Merry Christmas more than 3 wise men and 4 Bobbleheads?

Jeff,
You are truly a gem..... :rotfl2: :rotfl2: I am curious however...what happened to Joseph? Was he taken out in one of the nerf wars with your son?
Or does that only happen to Precious Moments figurines?

Jeff I just have to say I happen to like your tree topper idea
I would use another team but the idea I like

Wonder if I could get away with it this year

Jeff, at least there is a train under the tree & not a baseball stadium! So where is Trina's tree? And you didn't answer my question about grandbabies :)!

Cindy

Joseph is warming up in the bullpen (at least that is what I told Trina). She said something about sacks and religion but I didn't understand what she meant by that. Since the Super Glue accident involving the Precious Moments figures where their broken heads were glued on backwards, Trina has implemented complete Nerf gun control. Dakota and I have complained and I threatened to write to the Supreme Court stating this ban was unconstitutional but Trina seems to think she has more power in this jurisdiction since not even Sandra Day O'Connor can make me sleep on the couch (her exact words I think). I swear, I am very under appreciated.

Jeff I just have to say I happen to like your tree topper idea

Thanks for the compliment but I am confused. You mean there are other teams besides the Arizona Diamondbacks? I think you can get away with it, just offer to decorate the tree in exchange for "artistic freedom". By the time the family figures out what that meant, you got the tree topper on. You can also do like I did. We have a 10 foot tree so after I put the hat up there I hid the ladder.

Jeff, at least there is a train under the tree & not a baseball stadium! So where is Trina's tree? And you didn't answer my question about grandbabies :)!

I wanted the roof to open above the tree but Trina threatened me big time if I tried something like that. I think we will compromise and I get to paint the train purple and teal. I did have Diamondbacks bobbleheads riding in the train but she made me take them out. And as to your question, definitely no grand babies. Ashley is finishing her last semester at college and graduates in April. They don't plan on having kids for another year or so. Trina thinks that's a good thing since that would give me a couple of years to grow up. I think she's being a little optimistic on that.

As For other teams yes there are a few out here in the world other than the Arizona Diamondbacks although I am sure my uncle would agree with you :teeth:

So hiding that ladder HMMMM that just might work :rotfl:

I got zinged!! Thank you, Cindy!! I'll pass the zing along as soon as I finish getting ready for Christmas. The package probably arrived sooner, but we were away - remember that 68 page recipe sb I finished last week? That wedding was over the weekend in New England, & I'm just catching up today.

Also, I want to thank the person who sent me a package for winning the August challenge since I hadn't received anything. That was very sweet of Santa's elf - you know who you are!! You & Cindy are both very creative in the SB department!!

Can we share what we were zinged?? or is it a secret??

Thanks goofymom/pop for being so generous to think to start this.

I got ZINGED today, but it didn't come from Ohio. Mine came from CA. The return address looked familar but no note or name so I am not sure who it is from. With a little investigating I will probably figure it out. I will zing someone else soon.

BTW, I received fibers in red, black, white and yellow (Mickey colors), a tag (Disney) and some MM stickers.

Thanks to whoever sent them. :cheer2:
