NYT Spelling Bee 1-11-21 final

Hello from Day 53 of the current California COVID constant curfew. There was way less political action than I had thought there would be.

I missed a bunch yesterday. Easy ones were ALTAR, AORTA, AORTAL, ATTRACTOR, CARAT, TALC, TALL, TARTAR, and TROT.

In other news, I failed to mention that I got yesterday’s second pangram: DOCTORAL.

Meatier Misses

ATTAR: A fragrant essential oil, typically made from rose petals.
COACT: to act or work together. In an early draft, Trump said: “I didn’t coact, and I didn’t obstruct.”
COACTOR: one who acts with another. “I was the only actor. And I was perfect. There were NO coactors!”
DOTARD: An old person, especially one who has become physically weak or whose mental faculties have declined. Get him out!
TOCCATA: A musical composition for a keyboard instrument designed to exhibit the performer’s touch and technique. I knew this but forgot it.

Today’s summary

Final score: 40 words for 158 points.
Genius minimum: 155 points.
First word: CALF.
Pangram: FANCIFUL.

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).
