NYT Crossword 7-30-20 Complete

Well that was way easier than I thought it was going to be. The clues were linked, so once I got the hang of it, it kinda filled itself out. But that also means I was kind of disappointed! I looked forward to struggling with the Thursday puzzle. The Spelling Bee today also was underwhelming.Continue reading “NYT Crossword 7-30-20 Complete”

NYT Spelling Bee 7-30-20

Having woken up from the earthquake in LA, I decided to do the Spelling Bee before passing out again. I got CHUTZPAH very, very quickly. But I was still many away from the genius level. Yesterday a couple of my tweets were liked by twitter.com/notaspellingbe1, an account that posts words that don’t count but should.Continue reading “NYT Spelling Bee 7-30-20”

I’m still watching the hearing, and it’s driving me crazy. Why should these guys even show up if they’re not going to tell the truth? I was going to write a long thing about how Jim Jordan is hurting America (Matt Gaetz just said pundint instead of pundit. Ugh. How easy must the Florida BarContinue reading “NYT Crossword 7-29-20 Complete”

Another day, another hearing. I’m watching the testimony of Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai, and Tim Cook in front of the House Judiciary Committee, so I’m not going for time today. Also if prosecution for perjury is on the table, these guys are only going to avoid jail time due to covid concerns. HangContinue reading “WSJ Crossword 7-29-20 Complete”

NYT Spelling Bee 7-29-20

Don’t worry, I’m not going to skip out on the regular puzzles. But here’s an early one from my phone. I think I’ll start doing these, too, but who knows! After being proud of a few long words such as OFFAL, AIOLI, WILLOW, WALLOW, FALLOW, FOLLOW, I finally quit after I got AIRFLOW to pushContinue reading “NYT Spelling Bee 7-29-20”

LA Times Crossword 7-27-20 (7-28-20) Complete

I decided to try yesterday’s LA Times crossword puzzle. I tried for time because I didn’t for the two earlier today. Certainly it uses a different logic and has no NY-specific clues. There isn’t a lot of overlap with the NYT and WSJ puzzles, but there is one that I should unashamedly mention each timeContinue reading “LA Times Crossword 7-27-20 (7-28-20) Complete”

WSJ Crossword 7-28-20 Complete

I’m doing the crosswords while listening to Bill Barr’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, so I’m not counting times today. The audio keeps getting lower and lower in the transmission, and I don’t know what’s going on. It could be the Washington Post feed on YouTube, but I don’t want to go elsewhere becauseContinue reading “WSJ Crossword 7-28-20 Complete”

There’s too much TMI. Seriously. Today’s crosswords had TMI answers. It was 51D Texter’s “I didn’t need to know that” in the NYT and 7D “You’re oversharing!” in the WSJ puzzle. I don’t know what that says about the New York Times that they need to clarify texting is involved while the Wall Street JournalContinue reading “WSJ Crossword 7-27-20 Complete”
