NYT Spelling Bee 2-25-21 final

Hello from Day 33 of the reopening of California. Tonight starts Purim. It’s usually a social and drinking holiday, but COVID has put a stop to that for this year and last year. Really annoying.

Yesterday I missed ANARCHICAL, ANARCHIC, ARCHAIC, and CHAI. The pangram is stupid.

Meatier Misses

CHICHI: Attempting stylish elegance but achieving only an overelaborate pretentiousness. Like yesterday’s pangram?

From etymonline: “extremely chic, sophisticated,” also, as a noun, “pretentious fussiness,” 1908, from French chichi “airs, fuss.” Perhaps, like frou-frou, imitative.

Today’s summary

Final score: 27 words for 108 points.
Genius minimum: 105 points.
First word: MOGUL.
Pangram: GLAMOUR.

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).
