I gotta start this off with a huge shoutout to Miss Laura Braunstein for the shoutout on Rex's blog. I think my total page views on Saturday were up 5x! (Very small base to begin with, though)
Okay, puzzle review time. This was nice and fast, with the upper left proving to be a quick foot hold with VEST/VASE/ESPN. For some reason BASSO/BASSI always throws me off as an answer, in choir Alto was always ALTO, but we always called them BASSES, so I always expect the clue to indicate we're looking for an italian word here to get to BASSO/BASSI. Anyways, I digress.
The theme was cute and tight for a Monday. AIRSTRIKE and PARTYFOUL were especially nice, (idk why, I just enjoy the letter combos). I didn't have any 'wow, that's a great clue' but I also didn't have much 'ughhh, that again?' so I call that a win!
