Unfortunately, I kinda figured A) the correct digit for the SUV was 1, and B) Janet wouldn't even consider that digit for the SUV. 8^/

Some days, you just want to Force-choke somebody...

A New Hope (or maybe not):
  • Kraft Shake 'n Bake coating mix
  • La Bella Super Spikes styling gel (22 oz)
  • Capzasin-HP pain relief cream (1.5 oz)
  • Love Grown Oat Clusters toasted granola snack (12 oz)
  • Rolo candy
  • Act Total Care Dry Mouth mouthwash (16 fl oz)

$1.19
$12.99
$6.49
$2.99
$4.49

Obvious two are obvious... after that, I would put the styling gel in $6.49, Shake 'n Bake in $2.99, and mouthwash in $4.49.

Then again, I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home...

Kitchen islands tend to vary wildly in price (though not as much as, say, accessories or trips)... this one's effectively a coin flip.

    If you wanted to put a Star Wars quote in today's Double Prices...

    meh. How about an Indiana Jones one?

  2. The rest of the day after this turned into a Downer Ending (sorry if I'm using TVTropes jargon) after Jeffrey's $137 WSD (someone on Twitter yesterday erroneously (I think) said Jeffrey overbid by $165). A 7-day Jeopardy! champion fell, and there was also a $100,000 BONUS ROUND LOSS on Wheel of Fortune later that night. (Also, on Let's Make a Deal, the Big Deal of the Day was worth $41,001 - commemorating their 1,001st episode, and the person that went for it got the middle deal in door #2. The Big Deal was a Lexus...) I always freeze with a "what the (bleep) just happened?" look and accidentally leave the news running for 20-30 minutes when a contestant WSDs on their Showcase.

    I had to cue up the "Game Over" jingle from Sonic 3 & Knuckles after the $100K loss. Despite the fact it was Star Wars Day, this day just felt like a scene from a movie when the bad guys get away scot-free. This is the second time in 2015 that that's happened (the last time there was a $100,000 loss on Wheel, there was also a Double Overbid on Price just a few months ago).

    When Drew said, "I don't even want to read this", and the Showcase overbid horn sounded, my mind was playing Track 61 from the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire soundtrack. That is the jingle that plays when a player answers the $1 million question incorrectly on the old format with the Hot Seat,

    Sorry if I got off-topic, but I liked the second Showcase. I don't EVER want to see a heck of a bad day like this again, and May the Fourth be with EVERYONE.
