TPiRecap: 24 September 2013 (Post-Computer Disaster Edition)

Okay... about 24 hours after my hard drive crashed (thanks ever so, Sweetpacks worm and your being clever enough to slip past my otherwise foolproof radar!), I'm back in business and ready to get this recap going only about seven hours or so late. But hey, I wasn't about to miss a day this soon into a new season!

Let's do it...

After due deliberation, I've determined that $17,825 is the most likely price here... of course, I've been wildly wrong before when it comes to the Chevys.

If they're gonna be that way about it, I'm thinking the 8 and 2 should be changed.

Getting hung up on the hundreds digit killed him, I fear. But you never know. A 50¢, the 75¢, or the $2.00 card and he's right back in this thing -- and the odds of finding at least one of those cards are only 1:4. So it's not looking totally grim yet.

Now that was a case of Lady Luck having a cruel joke on Christopher. If only he hadn't gotten so tripped up on that third number... >_<

It's a proverbial good-news-bad-news situation for Concetta. The bad news, she's about to be banished to Leftover Island unless she wins this last IUFB. The good news... well, southeastern Ohio is actually fairly lovely this time of year, once the leaves start to turn. (It's no New England, of course, but it can hold its own...)

As Stan Lee might have said in the '60s, "Who says this isn't the Marvel Age of modeling mayhem!" (Remember how most of the big-name Marvel heroes had alliterative civilian names; "Peter Parker," "Bruce Banner," "Reed Richards," "Matt Murdock," etc.? Seeing those initials for the model lineup above just made me think of that. And that's the extent of my comic-book geekery for the day.)
