After months of not having finished a single crossword puzzle, May 7th finally broke my streak. Okay, so I may not have entirely done it on my own. There was someone else trying to butt in and look over my shoulder with every clue (as if knowing the right answer or even the simple MEANING of the word, *rolls eyes*). Fine, fine. I’m going to call this one a “group” effort, but it was mostly from MY group of brain cells.
* Looking at the puzzle UPSIDEDOWN is NOT a valid excuse for not helping with the clues.
* If you’re going to be accosted at every mall entrance, you might as well know the term of what they’re doing to you. It’s called being “frisked”. Others call it “sexual harassment”. I just call it “public secksing”.
* A headdesk-throw-down-walk-away conversation:
Uneditedmara: Okay, 65 down. Clue: commercial on the tube. Four letters.
Unhelpful Git: I don’t know. I mean, you’re the advertising person, not me. You should know what those things are.
Uneditedmara: *looks at crossword* Argh. *palmforehead* TV AD. Sheesh. Slow, I am.
Unhelpful Git: What? What do you mean TV AD?
Uneditedmara: You know, those things on TV? Commercials? Television advertisments? TV AD?
Unhelpful Git: OH! Is that what’s meant by a tube?
Unhelpful Git: (backpedalling) Oh, I thought it meant like the London Underground. Tube, y’know? And the ads that are placed there ..
Unhelpful Git: So you call TV a tube? Huh.
Unhelpful Git: Ah. YouTube makes more sense now.
Uneditedmara: *screams inside her head* OH. MY. GOD.
