Bingo - Themes

'Themes' is the theme for today's post.  In order to make Bingo cards we need Themes and then prompts for those Themes.  So if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment. We will have a vote in a few days to decide which Themes will be part of Bingo.  Perhaps there are themes you've never seen in Bingo but want to see.  Or you have old favourites which you'd like to continue.  All ideas welcome, think outside the box, it could prove to be very inspiring.

I'm going to request everyone keeps it to say a minimum of three suggestions each as, if the majority of people all post several ideas, it's a lot to sift through and needle down.

Comments will be screened

I'll be taking suggestions for Themes until Thursday the 19th and then they will be collated for a vote at the weekend before we request prompts.

Sadly, there have been no words. Computer Death 2 (Revenge of the Computer Death) has left me offline and incommunicado since Tuesday and I never saw the tag. Sorry folks.

In the interests of moving things on, because I don't think our illustrious leaders have done this for me already (and before Computer Death 3: Techo MegaDeath occurs, since that appears to be the theme at the moment), I will pass the torch over to hanorganaas. Go forth, be creative, make words!
