This is the sentence i put here so that the first letter of PUZ isn't ginormous.

  • I had a thing yesterday morning I'd been looking forward to for a while, and it didn't quite go as I was hoping (everything is okay). Feeling a little bummed.
  • Bummed out me did make two themelesses yesterday afternoon (not this one) that I really like though so yay
  • Don't have anything else to ramble on about this week. It's frigid here and summer can't show up fast enough.

Puzzle 13 - Themeless #9

Happy New Year (or Feliz Ano Nuevo) :). First things first - you should check out Tough as Nails - Stella Zawistowski's new site. First puzzle lives up to the name for sure, as my 1/4-filled in grid can attest to.

Not who I expected to sing 21-Down
  • Really wanted to clue 25-Down in an underwear-lacking way, but couldn't make it work. One underwear clue/entry per section is probably enough, anyways.
  • Not really a big video game guy (my days of pwning n00bs at Call of Duty are long in the past), but I've been playing a game called We the Revolution and it's a blast. You're a judge during the French Revolution and have to stay alive/balance your decisions between factions/take care of your family/gain power etc. Oh, and also theoretically actually administer justice. Long story short my dude's corrupt af and I should never be in a position of power.
  • Still working on that meta suite - have 2/3 puzzles done-ish but am stuck on the third mechanism.
  • I'd love to make the links auto-download, but not sure how to do it from Google Drive. Fixed! Thank you!
  • Come back on the 18th :)

Puzzle 12 - The Color of Money

Still a bit under the weather, so I dug up an older puzzle that was basically ready to go. For whatever reason, having a hard time getting in a cluing mindset, so that's the big logjam in my process. Hope this is a nice breezy solve for those of you who are worn out by the holidays!

Puzzle 11 - Themeless #8

Christmas is exhausting. Been hard to find time to write the clues for this one. I think this will be fairly tough. Enjoy :)



  • The nonfat to whole milk yogurt ratio is way out of whack. There are approximately 700 options for nonfat vs. 4 whole. Which is asinine, nonfat just replaces fat (which is good for you) with sugar (which is awful for you). Weekly source of frustration for us.
  • I got a flat tire on Monday. There was a big ass rock in my lane & a car in the lane next to me :/. Kind of a pain in the butt to have my wife come pick me up, end up having to get it towed, go back to the shop the next day to get a new tire, be out $100, yadda yadda yadda.
  • Basically I'm excited for a few years from now when the kids are out of daycare when we can go down to a one car family, and I can just bike/walk to work.
  • If you celebrate, hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Come back on the 28th!
