  • Advil Liqui-Gels pain reliever (80 caps)
  • Windex glass cleaner (26 fl oz)
  • Smucker's red raspberry preserves (16 oz)
  • Marie Callender's coconut cream pie
  • Gerber puréed pears (2-3.5 oz cups)
  • Minute Maid frozen limeade concentrate (12 fl az)

Obvious two are obvious... after that I put the pie in $7.75, the limeade in $2.29, and the preserves in $4.49.

($7.75: Coconut cream pie; $2.29: Drink concentrate; $4.49: Preserves... I would've won)

To be terribly honest, I was vacillating on whether the $1.29 was baby food or limeade myself. I stuck to my guns that it was the Gerber stuff. >_< Not an auspicious start to our Friday in the BBS.

Ever think that someone could be two-for-two and be unhappy about it? That's me right now.

We've got a little mix-up here... Amy, our new arrival, situates herself at the green podium at the far right, pushing Lynsey and Martha to the left one space each. Apparently we get things straightened out after an edit, because when we start the bidding Amy's at the Blueberry Podium where she belongs...

Drew, ever the patriotic Marine, salutes that ARP as well he should. ;^) He even tries to point out that the winner's name is Martha, as in Washington, but let's not torture a metaphor too much here. ^^;

My FAVORITE Game:
  • Sole E35 elliptical trainer (MA)
  • LG 60" LED HDTV (MA)
  • Deluxe wood-fired pizza oven (GG)

Swap Prize: Four Android mens' watches (RR)

I'm tempted to say the TV... but not confident enough to commit to it. Martha, however, is...

And after yesterday, the gags about "Crazy Manuela's Car Lot" take on a whole new resonance... (Don't worry, folks, she's not in trouble or anything, and she's got a good sense of humor about her miscue, so all is well.)

Got really worried there for a little bit, but a strong comeback at the end may have saved this. As Kenny Williams used to say, "You have the knowledge, you know the odds, all the rest is in the cards..."

  1. Can I just say that George has cemented his place in TPIR awesomeness today? I don't know how he managed reading copy and drumming at the same time, but it takes some serious skill to be able to do that.
