NYT Spelling Bee 5-7-21 final

Today the security security torx bits arrived, and I attempted to repair my PS4. The thing had been dying pretty quickly, and I have been scoping prices for the PS5. Calah has said that she doesn’t want the PS5 to appear on our registry, which is fine, I guess. I also recently read that there will be a PS5 redesign, so maybe now isn’t the time to buy a PS5 anyway. I’ve had this PS4 since 2014. The warranty is done, and the thing stopped working mid-game too many times, so what did I have to lose? Having now gone through the entire process of disassembly, cleaning out all the dust, and then reassembly, I was excited when I tried to turn on the PS4 and could! And it stayed on while I did other things today without issue. That was exciting, and I’ll be writing a dedicated post to that in the future.

Yesterday I missed IMPINGING and MINIM. That’s it. So I was the closest I’ve been to Queen Bee in ages.

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).
