If you want Doritos, you'd have to come down here Angela,...


My bag says 12 chips = 150 calories. I'm not going anywhere near your giant stockpile of girth expanders!!! I will be hard pressed to stop at 12 chips later this evening.

Nom, nom, nom, nom, nom, nom, nom!

I didn't think anyone would, but I did try.

Thanks to Ulrike, Angela, and J Mercer, I'm now at 38,400 points, though I'm still in 4th place, which is not a bad place to be in, and about 2hrs 35mins to go until My auction ends, maybe.

And a big thank you to SciManSteve for His help.

I did purchase the lions share of the needed ingredients, though never like this again.

From the website rules: *Better Together Bonus automatically applies when any Mtn Dew and Doritos Codes are banked at the same time.

Dang! Those advertisers thought of everything!!!

Vic, did you get any "bonus points" by entering my Doritos code in with Ulibelle's Mountain Dew code?

No I saw yours, and I missed Uli's at first, both were entered, and it's only 50 points. :(

It is exciting. I bid for old straight razors on eBay. You need to know when to hold them and when to fold them.

However My auction is over, I won. And I have 250 points to spare, there are other items to buy with the points, if I have enough, if not, I'm happy.

I have a question.

Was there a black-market somewhere for buying points?

I know that Vic came by all his points honestly, but if somebody was unscrupulous, could points be purchased?

I doubt it, one would simply need to buy the products sold under the Doritos and Mountain Dew labels, which is what I Myself did, I do have enough snacks and drinks, Doritos Nacho Cheese, Cool Ranch, and Diet Mountain Dew 2L bottles to last for a bit. I'm sure some got help from friends, but beyond that, I don't know a thing.
