I finally did it -- a puzzle blog! I'm standing on the shoulders of giants here as there are so many exceptional puzzle blogs out there. It's truly an honor just to participate. I'm still figuring out what I want the overall vibe of these puzzles to be (and how often I will post...) but here's a themeless I really love!
This is a recent (very kind!) NYT rejection that I tweaked a little. Many thanks to Matthew for looking over this grid when I put it together many months ago, Brooke and Adam for test-solving earlier versions, and Kate for a more recent test-solve. (4 of my absolute fave crossword people!!)
Hope you enjoy!
