NYT Spelling Bee 5-24-21 final

Tomorrow is the third installment of Calah‘s cushions series. I’m glad that she and I had the chance to collaborate on something cool and useful. Her blog drops at 10am. The following week will be back to me with a new project.

I’m very proud of the photo editing I did tonight to make the Caramel Mustang Macchiato. It’s the Mustang Mach-E but in a color it doesn’t come in. I spent way too long making it happen. I almost missed posting this since I was having so much fun!

Yesterday I missed BOTNET, EBON, ENNOBLE, ENTENTE, NEON, NONET, NONEVENT, TELNET, and TOOTLE.

Meatier Misses

BETEL: The leaf of an Asian evergreen climbing plant that is used in the East as a mild stimulant. Parings of areca nut, lime, and cinnamon are wrapped in the leaf, which is then chewed, causing the saliva to go red and, with prolonged use, the teeth to go black. Right! This is that gross stuff.
BOOTEE: A soft shoe, typically a knitted one worn by a baby. Dumb spelling of bootie.
LENTO: Music (especially as a direction) slowly.
NOVELETTE: derogatory A short novel, typically one that is light and romantic or sentimental in character.
TOOTLE: Casually make a series of sounds on a horn, trumpet, or similar instrument.

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).
