But seriously, heartfelt thanks for @judgevic88 for giving this naive high school junior a chance, once upon a time. You too, Will! Still hoping that I'm just getting started, and grateful for it all 🙏 (P.S.: 17-Across is IDITAROD)

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 🙃

Crossworders as competitors on survivor: 1. Will shortz for sure ruthless liar but in the end you respect his ingenuity and appreciation for the game (wins). Kinda tony season 28? 2. Sam ezersky gets blindsided and eliminated even though he has an immunity idol Bc too trusting

I would like @thegridkid to shout out my mom in cardiac ICU (she'll probably be fine), who insisted on doing the Spelling Bee with me and my sister, despite being in awful pain, *and* who was the one to get the pangram. She should be the NYT's Official Queen Bee. 👑🐝
