WHAT.A.FILL. Aside from EMO, ERTE, and FYI, there was virtually no filler. So refreshing. Lots of kudos to Nata, Andy, and the whole Crossword Class. And a perfect Saturday may also be a first for me, so lots to be happy about. There were a few missteps here, SCAMMER for PHISHER, WWIIFILMS for WWIIEPICS, ARGON for XENON, but was able to work through pretty quickly. JUICECLEANSES was one of those 'quick fill' clues (I think I only had the L from NOLTE and the S from ELSE), which then gave JEOPARDY and NAOH, etc. etc. etc.

 

Favorite fill was FASHION POLICE, DO OR DIE, and by far, IN LADIT TILE (which I will credit HGTV for all of my knowledge around subway tile in kitchens). And of course, I love a good NOOB appearance in a puzzle as well. If I had one complain about this puzzle, it's just that it ended too early!
