Well, I filled in all the boxes in about ten minutes, but then spent many more minutes looking for an error with no success. I handed it to Frannie and she fixed it immediately. As it turns out, the very first thing I put in, and something about which I was inappropriately proud (that my first entry should be a Latin-based clue), was incorrect. AMICI is, of course, the correct plural for 15A: ____ curiae (friends of the court). I could argue that I never even looked into the parentheses, but even then, a female "friend of the court" would have been unusual.
Anyway, enough about that. The rest of the puzzle seemed both easy and disappointing. HEXAD (6A: Legs on an insect or strings on a guitar) I found particularly unpleasant. And I've never heard of a "24A: Bit of ink, for short" called a TAT.
The theme answers were easy enough. I blame Monty Python for my failed attempt to enter (with no crosses) "Jarlsberger cheese" in place of JARLSBERGCHEESE (20A: Norwegian import in the dairy case), but it came soon enough. I love any mention of a WHIFFLEBALL (45A: Bit of equipment for an outdoor kids' game). But... well, I don't know... I just didn't like it. Sometimes that happens.
