NYT Spelling Bee 12-26-20 final

Hello from Day 38 of the current California COVID constant curfew. The rules are set to expire tomorrow, and I don’t know yet of any extension.

I’m laughing at myself for yesterday’s missed pangram that would have put me over the edge to genius level.

I had tweeted this:

And when I looked at yesterday’s answers today, I saw that NONDAIRY was a pangram. Unbelievable.

The other pangram was ORDINARY.

I also missed ONIONY.

Meatier misses

DRAY: A truck or cart for delivering beer barrels or other heavy loads, especially a low one without sides.

DRYAD: (in folklore and Greek mythology) a nymph inhabiting a forest or a tree, especially an oak tree. It’s been a while since this has come up. I didn’t remember it then, and that hasn’t changed.
NINNY: A foolish person.

Today’s summary

Final score: 47 words for 198 points.
Genius minimum: 194 points.
First word: GRAPH
Pangram: PHOTOGRAPH

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).
