SUICIDE

Dylan has his T-shirt sleeves rolled up, and Drew makes a Bowser reference. Welcome to 2013. ^^;

Shopping Spree:
  1. Honda CRF-110F offroad motorcycle (MA)
  2. 8' Harley-Davidson branded pool table w/accessories (MA)
  3. NordicTrack elliptical trainer (AL)
  4. Panasonic 50" 3D plasma HDTV w/glasses (AL)

The pool table looks like a bit of a trap to me... I'd stay away from it, unless it came down to a choice between it and the exercise machine. Then I'd go with that as the one to avoid.

Target: $8,000

Yep... definitely an idiot. Never ever considered the TV could've been the lowbie in this setup.

New Rowbird Lauren already has a name for her baby-to-be -- she's naming it after Drew -- and even has an appropriately-placed nametag stating as such! ^^;

Of the three realistic options, I think I like $8,212 the most out of this setup.

Mallory, however, does the very unusual thing [1] of pushing all the way to the end:

...and so much for that. Meh. We're not exactly off to a roaring start here.

[1] I'm not gonna say it's a Historic First™ or anything along those lines, because I just know the second I proclaim it to be such, someone'll remind me of an incident that occured on an episode I never got the chance to see.

That flushing sound you just heard was our chances of a decent first half departing the premeses. Oh well... we can but make the most of it.

I chuckle at the thought that Drew's been hosting how many years now? And yet we still get the odd bids addressed, as it were, to the Other Guy. Of course, a full two generations of conditioning is very hard to break...
