NYT Spelling Bee 4-15-21 final

Netflix’s The Circle is back! Calah and I have watched the first installment of four episodes, and it’s not the same as the first season. I think it was smart of Netflix to avoid trying to replicate the magic of Joey and Shooby. It would have fallen flat. I don’t know how they lucked into having those two on the first season. But this second season is different. It’s good in its own right. Worth watching.

Yesterday I–wow! I missed the pangram and didn’t even know it. Hmm. Well, the pangram was NONALCOHOLIC. No wonder I missed it? I also missed AIOLI (again), CALLALAOO, CANONICAL, CILIA, LANOLIN, LOIN, NONCLINICAL, NONILLION, and NONLOCAL.

Meatier Misses

COLCANNON: An Irish and Scottish dish of cabbage and potatoes boiled and pounded. Just sounds Old World to me.

OK, maybe it doesn’t look Old World. Also seems interesting. But probably for other people and not for me.


LOACH: A small elongated bottom-dwelling freshwater fish with several barbels near the mouth, found in Eurasia and northwestern Africa.

For just $10, it’s cheap! Or expensive. I don’t know how much they cost elsewhere.

Today’s summary

Final score: 23 words for 138 points.
Genius minimum: 136 points.
First word: ZONING.
Final word: NOGGIN.
Pangram: OXIDIZING.

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).
