TPiRecap: 18 December 2014 (Better late than skipped...)

After thinking I wouldn't be able to do one today because of lack of time (Real Life™ kept me away from my keyboard for most of the afternoon and evening), I was able to clear off just enough time to do one this evening. Please disregard any previous apologies and in its place, I hope you accept this.

...And Drew forgot his glasses today. Whoa. Does he ever look different without 'em. Apparently he didn't realize he'd left them at home until he got to the studio and was sitting in the makeup chair. Yeah, I know that feel. ^^;

It's hard to play with things like the Distance Rule and trying to figure extra days when there are two trips in a game like this; all you have is a price to go on, with almost no other useful frames of reference. This is very much the definition of a coin toss.

And another unbeaten falls... We don't have too many left, but we do have a few, including one (Bullseye) that realistically could finally break the streak of seasons without at least one clean sheet. Here's to hoping.

  1. so far, undefeat PG : Bullseye, double cross, hole in one, now or then, 2 for the price of 1.
    let 'em roll is tough loss.

  2. Car PG unwritten rule
    1.almost car price isn't back-to-back number.(though first and second sometime back-to-back number)
    2.gas money, five price tags car price last number is 0 or 5.(sometime neither 0 or 5 for last number, for example : 5/12/14 gas money)

  3. As it turns out, I would've won today's One Away playing assuming I'd also guessed $23,182 first. I just blindly guessed that the 8 and 2 were the ones that needed to be changed, and I was right!

    It's hard to play with things like the Distance Rule and trying to figure extra days when there are two trips in a game like this; all you have is a price to go on, with almost no other useful frames of reference. This is very much the definition of a coin toss.
    And yet, when playing along, I still won using the "distance rule". I knew $4,644 was awfully cheap for a post-Roger Dobkowitz-era Wyoming trip! Funny how that works, huh? ^^
