Timing is everything in daily crosswords. Entries like RAGEQUIT and BROMANCE amused and delighted me the first time I encountered them in a grid, but this time - perhaps only the third or so time that I've seen both - they're just sort of... well... they're ok. They suffer now, I think, more than is fair, really, because they're words that should be great, but the air has been taken out of them a bit.
Anyhoo... my error came at GST (9D: Astronomers' std.), which I had entered as GmT. My incorrect answer gave "mORELY" for 16A: Very much (SORELY), but after "skyey," I thought, "Well, who knows how far they will go.. maybe this is right?" It's one time I was actually happy to be wrong.
I did like DECOR (20A: Look inside), DATASET (25A: Table material), RANRAMPANT (30D: Went unchecked), AYE (60D: Word that sounds like a letter of the alphabet that's not in it), and THROB (49D: Pound).
I thought the clue on ASBESTOS (66A: Frowned-upon construction material) was a little too cute, because it's not so much "frowned-upon" as illegal. And there's kind of a lot of old-school crosswordese like NAFTA, OREM, IDES, and ESME. Not to mention MAS, PAS, and BAS... oh, I don't know. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. I'll still give 1A a B+, because I love that term, and I guess I'll give it a tepid thumbs up. Hey, I'm on vacation.
Also, here's a funny story - I tried "young," then "blond" before getting UNWED (6D: Like all contestants on "The Bachelor." If I had been my dad, I might have even tried "girls."
OK, that's all until tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
