NYT Spelling Bee 1-27-21 final

Hello from Day 3 of the unwise reopening of California. It’s supposed to rain heavily tomorrow, so I guess we’ll see how much outside dining will be going on.

Yesterday I missed GLOOP, PELT, POET, and POLYP.

Meatier Misses

LOLLOP: Move in an ungainly way in a series of clumsy paces or bounds.
TELETYPE: A kind of teleprinter.
TOPOLOGY: The study of geometric properties and spatial relations unaffected by the continuous change of shape or size of figures. Not the same as topography. An example of a topological map is a public transportation system map. The stops and relative locations matter, but a lot of other detail is lost. Topographic maps are the ones that show the circles for hills.

Today’s summary

Final score: 33 words for 93 points.
Genius minimum: 93 points.
First word: BEAM.
Pangram: MEGABYTE.
Tweets:

GME TOO SHORT. This was the absolute best. Really phenomenal.
Bee Gees. Stayin’ Alive.
It’s Arrested Development.

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).
