Fresh back from a week's holiday in Bangkok, I'm only slightly worse for wear. Healthy portions of nam pla, sticky rice (and the occasional seagull) have offset the daily Thai kick boxing thrashings. I'm not as good as I thought I was. Mona and Beth have jumped into the rickshaw and I'm hoping they can use some roller derby tactics to get our alliance just a bit closer to the Sundays.
There go my chances of winning the pool this season.
You all are going to shoot me but a pool player reminded me that in the instructions at the beginning of this thread, I said that on to-be-continued episodes, pool couples wouldn't get points based on order of arrival at the pit stop. I'm going to go back and revise the scores from episode 3 and obviously that will affect everyone's ranking in episode 4. I'm really sorry that I forgot about that. Thankfully, the mistake was pointed out early so by next week, we'll be starting off with everything corrected.

Thanks pikachu! Gotta keep those camels hydrated for the back half of the race now that the lead is narrower than it first appeared!!
Droppa grabs a club and from his firebolt bats a bludger at John tossing him right through the hoop and yelling, "That's how you use an express pass, you dimwit!."
