NYT Spelling Bee 12-19-20 final

Hello from Day 31 of the current California COVID constant curfew. The ICUs are at or beyond capacity, but isn’t this the perfect weather to barbecue?

(So it’s clear, the answer is no! Stay inside, please! Keep to yourselves so we can get through this thing!)

Yesterday I missed some annoying ones. One of those was ANNOY. Others were ATTABOY, BALLBOY, BATBOY, BLATANTLY, NANNY, NYLON, ONLY, and TATTY.

I missed all these -BOY words, but today there are so many -MAN words that aren’t in the word list.

Meatier misses

LOBLOLLY: A pine tree of the southern US that has very long slender needles and is an important source of timber. I’ve missed this before, and I’ve forgotten it again already.

From https://www.sciencenews.org/article/loblolly-sets-record-biggest-genome

TALLBOY: A large can in which beer or another drink is sold, typically holding 16 or 25 fluid ounces. Oh, yes. Who hasn’t had one of these when just out of view of the starter? My next tee shot will be in the loblollies.

Today’s summary

Final score: 27 words for 100 points.
Genius minimum: 93 points.
First word: NORMAL

University of Hawaii at Manoa going mano a mano!
seriously, bro…

In other news, I got LLANO today!

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).
