So this is the first NYT Monday of this blog. I raced through it with almost no skips as I was going through. I was excited by the time I was going to finish, but it turned out I had to finish it properly. I found the error semi-quickly. I had put EDIE when theContinue reading “NYT Crossword 7-20-20 Complete”
Did you know that a split level house is an actual thing and not just something silly from a board game?
I think this is the first time ever that I’ve taken the time to complete a Sunday crossword. These usually are just too big for me to want to take on, but today I tried it. And I won! Yes, it took me about an hour, but I got through it. I struggled a littleContinue reading “NYT Crossword 7-19-20 Complete”
So as I said in yesterday’s post, I do the Saturday NYT Crossword Puzzles with a group of friends, so I won’t be doing them here.

Clearly the WSJ puzzles and the NYT puzzles use a different logic, and that makes the WSJ puzzles kindContinue reading “WSJ Crossword 7-14-20 (7-17-20)”
Well this was way easier than yesterday’s crossword. I finished in 17:17. Why is a Thursday easier than a Wednesday? I don’t know. But this one was. I liked the theme of DARK ART. The three black squares in a row took the place of the word ART, so there was (ART)IFICIAL HE(ART), (ART)ICLE II,Continue reading “NYT Crossword 7-16-20 Complete”
The Wall Street Journal crossword for today was way easier than the New York Times crossword that I failed (see prior post). The logic was different, but it wasn’t so bad. I got a couple things wrong that I had to correct, it told me at the end. I had put SAL for French seasoning,Continue reading “WSJ Crossword 7-15-20 Complete”
