Well. This was bad. There was just a lot in this puzzle I didn't know and I couldn't get a foothold. I continued to work for an additional 10 minutes or so with little to no progress until I started looking up answers (gasp!)


So where did my issues start? Not really sure. I kept going back and forth on SIMONBILES (luckily I stuck with it at the end). I had wanted Rose Bowl to be TITLES and then High TEAS which threw me off for a while. Eventually I deleted 'TITLES' and then I made a bit more progress (although clearly not much). I don't really agree with SHACKEDUP as the answer for 41A, terminology/connotation feels all off. Anyway, that was clearly the least of my problems. Definitely storing XERISCAPING to memory though.
