TPiRecap: 15 December 2014

First, a note of housekeeping: There may end up being a Christmas hiatus this year. If there is, it will begin after this Friday's episode and continue for two weeks, with normal service resuming on 5 January.

That's the plan, at least, but I may decide to work through it after all. Time will tell. As for today...

$2575

If I hadn't heard the word "Gucci" in George's description, I'd say leave 'em be. But since that's what the accessories are, $2,575 isn't quite high enough, I think. I'd switch here.

Eh, it's not like I do a lot of shopping for high-end fashion accessories like that. ^^; Still, I thought I remembered Gucci being extremely expensive compared to the other labels this show offers. Ah well, all's well that ends well and all that...

Dicey's been pretty player-friendly so far in Season 43... of course, having made that observation, I now fully expect the tide to turn in the opposite direction this pass. We shall see.

Only two ways for that car to be lost... if it's $16,155 or $16,255. Unfortunately, I fear in my gut that this is indeed the case. Am I right, or have my guts gone nuts?

Both cars today with doubled digits in their prices (trebled, in Dicey's case). Are they trying to break that prejudice in our minds?

  1. Still, I thought I remembered Gucci being extremely expensive compared to the other labels this show offers.
    I think the other labels are in the $1,500 range, though. So, technically, you're still right! xD

    Going into commercial during the Switch playing, Drew said that "pop it!" would now be his catchphrase for the ARP reveal. I hope these guys don't find out! ^^
