NYT Spelling Bee 1-6-21 final

Hello from Day 48 of the current California COVID constant curfew. And holy crap what a day it’s been. Truly terrifying. This is not the America I know. I was taken by surprise that the Capitol was breached. Until this evening, I hadn’t watched Trump’s stream-of-consciousness incitement to violence. I feel like puking.

Yesterday I missed CIRRI, CLINIC, CYNIC, LION, LOIN, and NOIR.

Meatier Misses

COIN: Only to point out that there is a coin shortage.
CRYONIC: Relating to the practice or technique of deep-freezing the bodies of people who have just died, in the hope that scientific advances may allow them to be revived in the future. I don’t blame them for wanting to be woken up when all this is over.
NONILLION: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
RILL: A small stream.

Looks funny enough to make it worth the border.

ROILLY: (chiefly of water) muddy; turbulent.

Today’s summary

Final score: 17 words for 81 points.
Genius minimum: 74 points.
First word: WHITTLE.
Pangram: LIGHTWEIGHT.

Tweets:

I did a report about Zachary Taylor in middle school.

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).
