NYT Spelling Bee 1-28-21 final

Hello from Day 4 of the premature opening of California. It threatened rain all day today, and finally the skies broke open this evening. It’s coming down pretty hard now.

Yesterday I missed BEET, BEGET, and TEEM.

Meatier Misses

ABEAM: On a line at right angles to a ship’s or an aircraft’s length.
AGATE: An ornamental stone consisting of a hard variety of chalcedony, typically banded in appearance.
AMEBA: Dumb spelling of amoeba. A single-celled animal that catches food and moves about by extending fingerlike projections of protoplasm. Amoebas are either free-living in damp environments or parasitic.
AMEBAE: Many of the dumb spelling of amoeba.
BEGEM: To adorn with gems. I’d read it as BEG-um. It’s bee-GEM.
GAMETE: A mature haploid male or female germ cell which is able to unite with another of the opposite sex in sexual reproduction to form a zygote.
YEGG: A burglar or safecracker.

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).
