So I broke the cardinal rule of blogging, CONSISTENCY. Unfortunately I was traveling all last week for work, and while I found time for actual solving I couldn't get around to the blogging part. I'M SORRY!


I remember seeing some chatter about this puzzle on twitter before I solved (there's a error somewhere? People didn't get the theme?) I'm convinced I must have mixed up my days because everything seemed pretty straightforward and no errors jumped out. I was able to make quick progress in the upper right with MINAJ/JAYLENO and then move out from there over to the upper left. FAOSCHWARZ gave me temporary pause as I always think there's a T in there somewhere (and I thought CORGI had an E on the end, but I guess that's a classic Dan Quayle mistake).
