NYT Spelling Bee 6-18-21 final

Well the stock market sure went all crazy this week! Closing down a bunch, which is fine, I guess. I have had confidence in oil for the moment (that is to say before we all ditch fossil fuels completely by the year 2095), but the market may prove me very, very wrong.

Also the new Spelling Bee app doesn’t show the updated genius status. What a ripoff. Get it together, Ezersky!

Yesterday I missed CITING, ENTENTE, GENE, ICING, IGNITE, IGNITING, INNIE, NENE, NEXT, NIECE, NITE, TEEING, TEXTING, TINCT, TINE, TINGEING, and TINT.

Memorable Makes

Since the words I listed are words we all know, I figured I’d use this time to point out a couple big successes.

First, I got NINE and NINETEEN. That’s pretty much never happened in the history of the world.

Second, today I got words related to betrothal. MARITAL, MARITALLY, and TIARA (amirite about that last one, fellas?!). Certain to make Calah happy that I remembered marriage words. If I don’t post on Sunday, she didn’t care for the last one, so send help, please.

Today’s summary

Letters: TAILMRY
Final score: 41 words for 196 points.
Genius minimum: 190 points.
First word: MILITARY.
Pangrams: MILITARY, MARITALLY, MARTIALLY, MILITARILY.

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).
