NYT Spelling Bee 5-9-21 final

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there. While I didn’t get to do it this year due to covid stuff, I look forward to next year having a regular Mother’s Day with flowers, a picnic, hugs. That’ll be nice, you know?

Yesterday I missed ALLAY, ARRAY, ARROYO, LOAMY, MAYO, MAYOR, MONONYM, NANNY, NONROYAL, and ONLY.

Meatier Misses

AMYL: informal short for amyl nitrite, a yellowish volatile synthetic liquid used medicinally as a vasodilator. It is rapidly absorbed by the body on inhalation, and is sometimes used for its stimulatory effects. Chemical formula: C₅H₁₁NO₂.

I was looking at pictures of amyl, and it all looks mad sketch. I don’t feel comfortable linking to anything or showing it on this blog.

MORAY: A mainly nocturnal eel-like predatory fish of warm seas, that typically hides in crevices with just the head protruding.

Everywhere Wild has a cool writeup of the Moray Eel.

Definitely looks like it belongs on the set of ABC’s Dinosaurs, right?

Thinking of this show from my childhood makes me smile.

MYNA: An Asian and Australasian starling that typically has dark plumage, gregarious behavior, and a loud call.

Can’t miss a chance to post “I’m a little duck. Quack quack quack quack quack.”

ONLAY: An item of cloth, paper, etc., fixed on the surface of something, especially for decorative effect; a thin piece of leather, etc., mounted on the cover of a book for ornamentation.

Letters: LBIGNOW
Final score: 49 words for 255 points.
Genius minimum: 252 points.
First word: BLOGGING.

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).
