I Did It!

Woohoo! I finishd this crossword puzzle. I NEVER do crosswords, but I found one in a magazine that was decent enough looking and ripped it out, receyled the mag, and made copies for the kids at school to do. Although, I didn't think about ripping out the answer key as well. So - I had to figure it all out.

I have never been that good at crossword puzzles. Give me a wordfind and I am a searching master - make me have to think of synomyns for a lot of words and my brain starts to hurt.

I started working on it yesterday and finally finished it (with the help of a dictionary, a thesaurus. and the internet). Yea!

You crack me up! This coming from a woman who can fly through 'Ulysses' in two days!! (Ok, maybe that's just a wee bit of an exaggeration, but you get my point).

Re: crossword puzzles. I'm an absolute WHORE for them. And when you do them on a regular basis, they get easier. You ought to get the NYTimes puzzle books... try not to use the key, etc. You'll be finishing the Saturday ones (the hardest of the NYT) in a snap!

I am sure it would be very good for me to do crossword puzzles - it will make me to think differently than I currently do.

I am a WHORE for the wordfinds.
