Ooooof. Well, I know it wouldn't last forever, but this one was a real doozy. Today was definitely a, 'look through the clues for factual answers until I find something that fits' which happened to be CENA. That didn't give me much to go on, but luckily WOODS, DROID, ONANDON filled in nicely. I even started to get a bit optimistic after the lower right was filled in and I still had 15 minutes left.

 

And that's where TREASMAP started to appear. PESO and MBAS had me think it had to end in MAP, and ATLAW and KEYIN made 'treasure' pretty obvious. SENSURE (which I had as a C, and then thought there may be a ST___ vegetable I was forgetting about) made me start to look for 'over and down' answers. Even after completing HANDSDOWN I still didn't get it, and tbh even now that I know it's '_____ hand' expressions, I'm not sure I love it. Oh well, you win some you lose some.
