I pulled out 56A Whiz: MAVEN because maven comes from the Hebrew word מבין (meh-VEEN) which means understand. So a maven is someone who understands.
The theme of this puzzle is Friday, I guess.
There’s nothing specifically long, so here’s some other stuff that stood out:
14A Band featured in Disney World’s Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster: AEROSMITH.
17A Last of the Ptolemys: CLEOPATRA. I didn’t realize that she was part of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Good for her!
54A She’s the responsible one in the group, colloquially: MOMFRIEND. I hadn’t heard of this title before. It makes sense, I guess. But also sounds kinda rude?
33D Make an unwanted appearance in a video call: ZOOMBOMB. I pieced this one together because it couldn’t be photobomb. I don’t want to do zoom anymore ever. Please mask up and get vaccinated and then continue to mask up.
23D Holiday hearth feature: YULELOG. Probably my favorite show on December 24. The 2020 Yule Log was way higher def than I remember it being in years past.
Finished this one in 29:01.
