Protip: Just because a trip doesn't send you over an ocean, doesn't mean it's necessarily cheap. Especially if an international border is involved (for all that people like to joke about "the 51st state" and "America's funny hat," getting to Canada from here does require a border crossing and all the fun times—and added expense—that entails). And we're still talking at least 2,800 miles from LAX to YUL, after all; not exactly a weekend jaunt.

Yeah, Spector guitars are pricey, Elise, but they're not that pricey. ^^;

Secret "X":
Whirlpool washer & dryer (Plessers.com), LG dishwasher, & iRobot robotic vaccuum ($5,028; GOS)

Ah, good, a fairly easy game to snap this disconcerting losing streak... provided, of course, Cheryl doesn't play this like the last person we saw did and puts her freebie in one of the middle boxes...

FINALLY!

Even a cheapie win like this is preferable to the skunk I thought I saw! We're safe now.

But Krista still has something to worry about, namely getting shipped off to Leftover Island unless she gets on stage now. Can she do it? Let's find out.

Says Drew of our newest Rowbird, Kristian Steel, who arrives dressed as a certain Man thereof (or at least with a cape and a T-shirt with the S on it): "That's a cool soap opera name... and, uh, Let's Make a Deal is down the hall, dude." ^^;

Switch?:
  1. Pair of Kaku 11'6" paddleboards w/accessories (RR)
  2. Samsung 65" 3D LED Smart HDTV w/2 pairs of glasses & universal remote (GOS)

What's our rule about TVs? They always end in -00. However, the addition of a universal remote muddies the waters a little. He should still switch, however.
