  2. Cole Haan designer handbags & boots (MA)
  3. Microsoft XBox One game console w/games & accessories (RR)
  4. Samsung 65" LED 3D Smart HDTV w/2 pairs of glasses (RR)

I would suggest the game console as being the one to avoid. That turns up so often as an IUFB that its sub-$1,000 nature is burned into my long-term memory.

OH WELL

Two grand is good for one point... but yeah, this board's still in a bad mood, I think. All we can do now is hope for one of those patented Second Half Comebacks®...

Don't judge Krista too harshly. She just didn't have the weight to put behind her spins, and the Wheel is always a lot heavier than it looks on TV.

Maybe Christopher's right for not wanting to get on stage (if indeed that's his deal). Seems everyone's gonna be snakebit who gets there...

Dale goes for the "Barry White" approach in dealing with the MSEL...

1 right? HONK
2 right? HONK
3 right? ...and it's only that effective.

Now it's super-tough. I want to believe the $25K price, which would make this an easy choice for me, but now that I think about it $23K might be a more realistic option... which means the one (non-obvious) number to leave alone is up in the air. Let's see what Dale does, 'cause I got nothin' this time.

And that's the other reason I got scared off of the $25K price—that doubled 4.

Doubled digits like that are rarely a good idea. And so ends a roller-coaster of a week.
