A-la peanut butter sandwiches! Here are my thoughts on Countdown for this Thursday.

Round 1: Wow-wee, Steven! That was great!
Round 2: Debbi, I thought re-filmed was a non-hyphenated word too! You can't win them all!
Round 3: Have we had a load of this? We see Rachel's favorite long number as the first two letters and her favorite dessert (possibly) as the first three! I bet she enjoys food as much as she enjoys mathematics!
Teatime Teaser #1: French fries? Ironically, I took a break for lunch after the teaser was revealed!
Round 6: Here we go again with food, Debbi!
Conundrum: What goes in has got to come out! A very appropriate way to end this game! Then again, after that we want to forget about it and think about making ourselves more comfortable now.
