CSS Results for October 12
« on: October 12, 2006, 02:39:30 PM »
Usually when we have a showcase that ends in the numbers 994, the natural tendency is for folks to be $6 over. Our winner today just had to buck the tendency...he was $6 under. In doing so he posted the closest difference of this season, and smoked the entire field except for the second place player, who was able to snag a rather pricey room/trip package which had a Bullfrog spa wedged in the middle somewhere.

Oh, and why am I telling you this? BuddyTom's modem did a swandive today, and he could not participate normally. In fact, he called his bids in to our eventual winner on something called a telephone. How quaint.

Good thing I totally bombed on the car, because the overbid on the furniture would've been pretty tragic. I took an NCC-esque risk on that one. Also, me and Armadillo are now even this season, 3-3. He's making a comeback... :-(

Blast!  So close to claiming my first money of the season.  Fine bid by Ludwig, though, so props to him.  As for that other showcase, unlike heels, I can't figure out furniture on this show.  Every time I think it's cheap, it ends up being expensive, and vice versa.  Give me a car showcase any day, or even a random trailer.  :-)

Cars and trailers are tough for me. I'll trade you my furniture skills for your car/trailer skills. :-D

I seem to be back... some tech-talk involving an invalid IP address or humminahumminahummina... ech, at least I can check my email now. I felt so... detached.

And not a bad bid for me, being out of it this morning and phoning my bids to Ludwig. Congratulations Ludwig for a SMASHING DSW!

I can't believe you don't remember that the PT Cruiser is $16,000, sometimes exactly.

I guess I'm the only one that remembers Flexsteel being really expensive (save for NCC) Ah well.

Nah...I missed the brand name of the furniture.  Of course, I still would have bombed the showcase...I lowballed the spa for sure purely because it wasn't the last prize of the showcase.

Oh, and Heels, did you think that was six dozen doughnuts a DAY or something?  

Let's just hope my painful over-bidding streak is over...that's the only reason the score is even close.  :-P
