Short one today! I make up for it with more etymology from yesterday’s misses. Speaking of getting things wrong, I’ve been watching The Blacklist. There are so, so many inaccuracies that pull me out of the show. Just one example: Why does Elizabeth have a clearance that lets her go to a black site? But then again, Jared. So maybe it was just ahead of its time.
Yesterday I missed APOLOGY, GLOOMY, LALLYGAG, LOAMY, PAPALLY, PLAY, PLOY, and PYGMY.
AMYL: The straight-chain pentyl radical —C₅H₁₁.
LOGY: Dull and heavy in motion or thought; sluggish.

PALMY: (especially of a previous period of time) flourishing or successful.
Final score: 17 words for 82 points.
Genius minimum: 73 points.
First word: BELIEF.
