"Meatball-flavored yogurt?" That is vile, Drew! >_<

You know what else has been disgusting lately? The payouts from the Plinko Board. But there's always hope that a game of chance such as this can pay off at any moment. (Consider: The odds of landing at least one chip in the $10K slot are 8-1 against. Most lottery scratcher games have worse odds, and people win some money in those all the time. It's bound to happen again sometime... why not today?)

FINALLY!

It's just one chip in the $10K slot, but after weeks of dismally low Plinko payouts, it still felt good! (And of course, it counts as a "win" around these here parts.)

Carl, after claiming the ARP card as a souvenir: "Do I get $499 for being a dollar off?" ^^;;

Most Expen$ive:
  1. Elmira Stove Works retro-look refrigerator (MA)
  2. Panasonic 55" 3D plasma HDTV (GOS)
  3. Pro-Form treadmill (GG, provided he can stay on the thing)

Leftover Island awaits Jaime, while Alissa heads on up to greet Bullseye:
Trip to Barcelona, Spain (6n, W Barcelona, daily breakfast, guided evening walking tour; $8,259; GOS)

All right, an easy game to at least give us a shot at ending this day at the .500 mark...

  • Smucker's strawberry jam (32oz)
  • Dec-A-Cake rainbow sprinkles
  • IcyHOT pain relief patch
  • 5-Hour Energy drink
  • Vlasic dill relish

...Did I say "easy?" Maybe not so much, looking at this motely assortment of GPs. Still, I see one surefire way to win: 5-Hour Energy is $2.99 wherever I go, so four of those (for $11.96) should put Alissa in the proverbial catbird seat.

Now it's down to the Last Chance... hopefully Lady Luck didn't use up all her mojo getting that last Plinko chip to go where it was supposed to:

Yeah, I jinxed it, sorry 'bout that. >_<
