NYT Spelling Bee 5-30-21 final

Today was Dungeons & Dragons. It was way more fun than I had thought it would be. I’m still getting the hang of the procedure and what I can do and can’t do and what other people can do and can’t do. Absolutely I misplayed some things. But I’m more prepped for next time.


Meatier Misses

AGLET: A metal or plastic tube fixed tightly around each end of a shoelace. I didn’t know the name of this! That’s so cool! Also did anyone else try to fix theirs with tape? It was never perfect, but it was better than letting them get unraveled.
GALETTE: A flat round cake of pastry or bread.

That looks good. The View From Great Island has all the deets.

GAVOTTE: A medium-paced French dance, popular in the 18th century.
GLOTTAL: [attributive] Of or produced by the glottis.

glottis: The part of the larynx consisting of the vocal cords and the opening between them. It affects voice modulation through expansion or contraction.

LEGATE: A member of the clergy, especially a cardinal, representing the Pope.
TOLLGATE: A barrier across a road where drivers or pedestrians must pay to go further.

Today’s summary

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).
