The "Guess our Ages" contest!


Dear Readers,

We'd like to announce an exciting contest here at the Basement! As you may have noticed from our profile to the right, Margie and Edna are not real people (no matter how real they may seem at times). The ladies are fictional characters created by two friends and blogging buddies, Jane and Beth. You can read more about M&E's origins here.

Now, it's no secret that Margie and Edna aren't exactly spring chickens. But does art imitate life? For this contest we'd like you, our readers, to guess the actual ages of Jane (aka "Margie") and Beth (aka "Edna"). Please send your guesses via email to (with "AGES" in the subject line). All guesses must be submitted by Monday December 7th at noon EST. (Incidentally, if you know either Jane or Beth in real life, you are not eligible for this contest.)

While there is only one entry allowed per person, you may include two guesses (one each for Jane and Beth's ages) per email entry. Whoever's guess is closest to our actual ages wins the following:

  • You get to choose the subject for an upcoming blog post. Whatever you ask us to write about, we'll write about it--the sky's the limit.
  • If you're a blogger, we will also run your ad in our sidebar for two weeks!
  • Bonus prize: if the winner is also a member of Entrecard, you win 500 credits!

Edna: Margie, I don't know about this...a true lady never talks about something so crass as their age.

Margie: Don't talk about it then, nitwit. Just let people guess.

Hi Margie!

Sadie was thinking " Maybe is you tell Arabelle about how warm and slimming a nice knit dress can be, she might wear it, and don't forget to tell her about all the oohs and ahas she will get."

Well I have had I few days to think about that. for some reason, I think y'all are younger then Margie and Edna. So I will submit my guess via e-mail. looking forward to you all revealing your ages... If you can bring yourselves to do that. Have a happy day.
