I just typed “peeing” into #spellingbee, which then said “Nice!” and that is officially the weirdest conversation I have ever had with my phone.

In our latest solver story, @fixedbaroque pens a lovely ode to her grandmother. "She had more intelligence than privilege, more potential than money," but she proved herself equal to crossword constructors every week.

Made my @nytimes crossword debut 9 years ago today!!! It's been a looong journey since seeding my grid with the ultra-ultra-fresh PHOTOBUCKET at 11-Down (that "Web site" stylization, woof), and failing to understand Will's final clue for TOKE at 45-Across 🙃

NEED SOMEONE TO FILM AN ONLYFANS VID WITH ME: You pretend to be a mover helping me get my things from one apartment to the other. I wear a tiny sundress and you don’t touch me you just move my things. This does not pay

Please be advised that if someone asks what you think of something, they most certainly do not want to know what you actually think of something
