Y'all clearly I am not doing well on the whole consistency of posting times. I'M SORRY! I'll be better I swear!


First foothold came in the upper right with LARA/BANGER, then FLARE, FLAB, etc. The whole top section then moved pretty quickly - BEARHUG gave my SERB which gave USSR and then eventually lead to the upper left. No complaints with any of the cluing except for HAHA which I struggled to associate with 'Made you look'


The middle section probably took the longest (PUZO????), but at 13 minutes I didn't really get stuck anywhere for too long. I originally had SEGA for XBOX but TACO sussed that out pretty quickly. I couldn't for the life of me think of KIWI (kept wanting DODO), but KUNGFU solved that problem.


Overall solid puzzle, although maybe a little easy for a Thursday. Themed answers and clue pairs were very fun, especially NORHYMEORREASON. More of these please!
