TPiRecap: 27 December 2013 (Kids' Special, delayed)

Due to a catastrophic cable calamity in Columbus yesterday, I was unable to either do a recap of yesterday's episode or even get it recorded. Now that I'm back, it's CBS.com to the rescue, though this will of necessity be a speedrun. Apologies for that. We're back to normal on Monday, if it's any comfort.

Note
Kids' Special

I hate having to Jack Webb a special like this. Unfortunately, circumstances dictated I could do naught else but skip this episode altogether -- and that is not a desirable outcome. (Particularly since every time I do find myself forced to skip a show, I get ten thousand emails (and comments that I never let out of my moderation queue) to the effect of "WILL YOU RECAP TODAY'S SHOW WHERE IS TODAY'S RECAP DID YOU QUIT ALREADY AND I CAN DO THIS JOB BETTER THAN YOU YOU LAZY [expletive deleted]," among other pleasantries.

Anyhow, today we've got kids (all between the ages of 7 and 13) playing the games with their parents, guardians, and in some cases their siblings as well. You know the drill... kids get listed first, since it's their day, and just to make S&P happy it's the adults who will actually be making most of the important decisions.

1. Trip to -- where else? -- Disneyland (for 4, limo, 3n, Anabella Hotel, daily breakfast, 4 3-day park passes) (RR)

Sorry about this being the no-frills variety of recap.  Blame the moronic contractor who didn't call before digging and ended up cutting everyone's cable connection yesterday.  >_<

As I said, we're back to normal service on Monday.  With any luck at all.
