NYT Spelling Bee 3-20-21 final

It sure is windy out here in Los Angeles! And now that you bring the topic of the wind blowing, Japan has announced that there will be no spectators at the 2020 Olympic Games. That’s annoying for me because I had been under the impression that Ari Goldberg would be attending the games and would bring me a Japanese baseball. Oh well.

Yesterday I missed LOON, NONPOLAR, ULNA, and UNROLL.

ANNULAR: Ring-shaped.

From etymonline:

“ring-shaped,” 1570s, from French annulaire (16c.) or directly from Medieval Latin annularis “pertaining to a ring,” from annulus, misspelled diminutive of Latin anus “ring” (see anus). An annular eclipse (1727) is one in which the dark body of the moon is smaller than the disk of the sun, so that at the height of it the sun, due to the moon’s remoteness from Earth, appears as a ring of light. Related: Annularity.

LUNULA: The white area at the base of a fingernail.

Today’s summary

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).
