Hello from Day 20 of the opening of California. Today’s impeachment trial was completely off the wall with Trump’s counsel being intentionally evasive but for absolute certain mostly out of ill preparation than out of sliminess. The senate will reconvene tomorrow at 10am, and that means 7am here in LA. I’ve set up the computer to play the PBS NEWSHOUR stream that starts at 9am. I won’t be live tweeting during that one, but I may be yelling.
Yesterday I missed COFFIN, COIFED, DECIDE, DECIDED, EDIFICE, INFO, and NEICE.
COFFINED: When someone passes out on the couch at a party without removing shoes and someone else puts the other couch upside down over that person. Or so I’ve heard. Sounds terrible.
I tried but couldn’t find a picture of this activity.
DEICE: To remove ice from.
DEICED: Having done the above.
DEICIDE: The killer of a god.
DIFFIDENCE: Modesty or shyness resulting from a lack of self-confidence.
ECOCIDE: Destruction of the natural environment by deliberate or negligent human action.
EDDIED: (of water, air, or smoke) moved in a circular way.
EDENIC: Relating to or characteristic of the garden of Eden.
Final score: 43 word for 154 points.
Genius minimum: 154 points.
First word: HALOGEN.
