TPiRecap: 26 May 2015

As a heads-up, there is a nonzero chance that I might be called away from my recapper's chair without warning at some point this week. I'll try to give a heads-up when and if that comes up, but if a few days pass by where you don't hear from me here, chalk it up to "family stuff" and leave it at that.

And so...

Drew comes out with an old (1980s vintage) 8×10 publicity shot of someone or something claiming to be "George Gray III." Any relationship between our intrepid announcer and the mulleted, muscle-shirted slab o' beefcake seen in the photo is, of course, purely coincidental. Much laughings are had.

Yesterday, in a near-miracle, Stack the Deck was won. Dare we hope for two in a row?

...Didn't even get one digit on the board. >_< Awful slap back down to reality after yesterday. (No, I don't want to hear it. Yesterday's show was taped after today's. No conspiracy here.)

Besides, that was rather a cheap Lexus, as Lexi go.

  2. MSI 27" touchscreen computer (16GB RAM, 1TB HD, Bose speakers w/remote, Epson printer; AL)


$3,153 makes the most sense of anything for the pool table.
As indeed it should have. So at least we salvage a little dignity this first half.

So much for that groove.

Dixie and Kelly will be sharing seats on the Leftover Island Shuttle, but one of them can still escape this fate and it's Kelly who has the advantage. Let's watch...

  2. BDi compact bar w/cocktail shaker & 10pc bar tool set (RR)
  3. Kate Spade designer accessories (RR)

$4,035 on that bar sticks out way too much for my taste.

    The Lexus IS, ES, GS, NX, RX, GX, IS-C, and CT must not exist in your neighborhood, then...
