NYT Spelling Bee 5-20-21 final

I haven’t checked on the chuck roast that’s been cooking for the past day and a half because I can’t see through the Coleman cooler, and if I open the lid, the Anova cooker comes out. No point in having that happen. But it will be tomorrow night’s dinner, so that’s a good thing.

Yesterday I missed ANION, ANTI, ANTITOXIN, INFANT, IOTA, NAIF, TANNIN, and TITAN.

Meatier Misses

ANOXIA: Medicine An absence or deficiency of oxygen reaching the tissues; severe hypoxia.
ATAXIA: Medicine The loss of full control of bodily movements.
FONTINA: A kind of pale yellow Italian cheese.

Fontina is the most important cheese in the Aosta Valley.

Reminds me of something, though.

So much cheese! Cold was fine, but it was even better when I heated it up.

INFIX: Implant or insert firmly in something.

Today’s summary

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).
