@somethingaquamarine, I hope it’s okay that I’m relating my post to the list I’m just so fascinated by this living, breathing object of pre-bridal angst and bliss rolled into one bulletin
I’m fresh off a trip to Las Vegas with my bf where we lost a ton of money (good times were had) and I’d like to play a version of a game that kicked my a$$ and try to at least win at something!
I think it’d be super fun for us to guess at what Waiting List Number we’ll be when we get engaged. Just like in the real Roulette there’s no real algorithm (aside from the fact that all you know is your final number is going to be smaller than it is now but unless you know the SO of every other bee before you and when he’s going to propose, it’s practically a wild guess!)
For reference, put your current number and your final number, straight up bet!
Me first: My current number is 252 and I reckon I’ll take my leave of the list at 115!
This is JUST FOR FUN ladies, per the list rules, clean-up is coming in September, so let’s just play until then 🙂
Please whoop, scream, holler and shout and let us know if you win!

@QuirkySocialite: Well, I’m at 181, and I’m determined to take tea’s spot at #1. So that’s me. I’m gonna be lucky #1!!!!

I’m at #119, and I think I’ll be off at #101

Sure, i’m down for this game! I don’t know if I’ll be off by the clean up in September, but in case I am, here goes…
I am #12 right now and I think IF I get off before September, I’ll be at #10… only because the list moves slower at the top 🙂

Ohh i’ll play! I am at #203. I originally thought SO might propose around our anniversay in September….but now I am thinking it might be more around the holidays. So, my guess is I will be off around #90!

I’m at 268 and I think I’ll be off at 230 🙂

#35 and I think I’ll be off at #4

So I worked out that I’m 108 and I should be off the list at 56. I based this on going up 2 places each week until decemeber (when I roughly expect to be off the list) though I’m tempted to say that 56 is a bit high up considering I’ll probably not go up 2 places each week but it’s a rough guess. 🙂

@QuirkySocialite: I’m pretty sure there was basically this thread posted last week. Not “roulette” but guessing what number we will be when we leave.
That said… my answer changed. After some conversations over the past two days it looks like it’s not going to happen by the end of the year. SAD! So I’m thinking with the clean up in Sept and possibly sitting through ANOTHER clean up early next year, I’ll be at…. I’ll say 42. (I was going to say 50 but Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy figures prominently in our relationship history and our second date was SO’s 42nd birthday.)

I’m at 144. I’m guessing I won’t be off the list until maybe the 70s or so. Not much progress has been made recently. I’d like it to be closer to 100, but I doubt it at this point.
Post # 12
Oh! Excellent idea! I am currently at 115 think I will get off the list at 82! Don’t know why but I like the number 82!
Post # 14
My current number is 58 and I think my final number will be 19 – though I hope its 33 cause that’s my lucky number!
We’re getting engaged this holiday season, so I’ve got about 6 months to get that far.

@aithinne: Aww thanks. I’m a little bummed, but I know he’s really excited about getting married (he can’t stop talking about it). It’s just a money thing. 😛
