NYT Spelling Bee 9-29-20

I feel like there’s a chance that I can go beyond where I am now in today’s puzzle, but since the debates are coming up soon, here’s my analysis of yesterday’s misses:

EDDIED: past tense verb form of the whirlpooling. Should I have gotten this one? Meh. I wouldn’t have thought of it.
ENNUI: My mind didn’t go there, and I’m bummed about that.
INDIE: I probably should have gotten this.
INNIE: This one, too.
NINEPIN: A substantially worse form of bowling.
PINNIPED: The clade that includes seals and walruses (walri?). I’d never heard this before, and I don’t know if I’ll remember it, but now I know a new thing.
PINUP: Oh well.

So it wasn’t so bad last night, but there certainly were words I missed.

Current (and possibly final) score: 29 words for 106 points with minimum genius at 85.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
