NYT Spelling Bee 11-26-20 final

Happy Thanksgiving from Day 8 of the Current California COVID Curfew!

It’s been kind of a weird day. I certainly missed going to my elementary school’s alumni Thanksgiving breakfast. I also missed having dinner with my family.

I’m surprised that yesterday’s spelling bee only had one pangram. I was fairly certain I had missed at least one, but it turned out that I had not.


TORI: A geometry word! Surfaces or solids formed by rotating a closed curve, especially a circle, around a line that lies in the same plane but does not intersect it (e.g., like a ring-shaped doughnut).
TORII: The gateway of a Shinto shrine, with two uprights and two crosspieces.

Torii Hunter

TORTONI: An Italian ice cream made with eggs and cream, typically served in a small cup and topped with chopped almonds or crumbled macaroons.
TRICORN: (of a hat) having a brim turned up on three sides. Maybe also hamantaschen?
TRICOT: A fine knitted fabric made of a natural or man-made fiber.

On the earlier topic of me missing CRITIC, there’s the award-winning Mel Brooks short!


Final score: 33 words for 151 points.
Genius minimum: 144 points.

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).
