Alright y'all, I'm finally back to a normal blogging schedule (cue: 'Is it too late now to say sorrryyyyy??'). Gotta tell you, I didn't know how this was was going to turn out. I was 90% sure if was the 60's but history is really not my strong suit.


Puzzle moved quickly, no real hangups aside from the '6' issue. Felt a little fill-y for a Monday, but that's a Monday. SLUDGE and OTTOMAN were nice as was SLIPUPS. Only real point of contention was CHINK. I fully appreciate there is a totally non-offensive usage of the word (and much more common), but it doesn't seem that hard to move - CLINK/OLM (apparently an OLM is a kind of newt)?
