NYT Spelling Bee 5-5-21 final

Somehow I thought I’d never get to genius today. I kept running out of words. I was scraping my brain with little result. Then it happened. I got it! Hooray!

In other news, Calah somehow forgot that this season’s finale of The Circle is now available on Netflix.

As she reads this, she’ll probably be like, “OMG, Matt! Why are you telling people this?!”

Well, I do have this quote poster on my wall:

“Good communication is the key to successful relationships.”
-Bill Gates

If you don’t see a post from me tomorrow night, please send help.

Yesterday I missed AGITA, FIAT, GRAFT, ITTY, RAGTAG, RIFT, TRAY, and TRIG.

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).
