Hello from Day 52 of the current California COVID constant curfew. Tomorrow will be a crazy day in the house. I looked this evening and saw nothing on the schedule, but that ought to change by morning.


Meatier Misses

CLOACA: A common cavity at the end of the digestive tract for the release of both excretory and genital products in vertebrates (except most mammals) and certain invertebrates. Specifically, the cloaca is present in birds, reptiles, amphibians, most fish, and monotremes.

It’s officially the Plant of the Week. I just don’t know which week.

The team behind Ocotillo opened a Mexican restaurant in Phoenix. Here’s what to expect:

Here’s where we all feign surprise at two words on the menu: HORCHATA and TORTA.

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).
