NYT Spelling Bee 1-12-21 final

This genius finish almost didn’t happen. I’m exhausted and had very little time to do the spelling bee. But at 11:08pm, I finally got the pangram. I hope this moment of clarity can spread to the US Senate. I’m so eager to return to a time when I don’t have to be hurt by the actions of our government at every moment.

Yesterday I missed LANAI and LULU.

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).
