Today's puzzle offers five examples of how to GOYOUROWNWAY. You can eat CURDSANDWHEY, appreciate art by AIWEIWEI, and say ANCHORSAWEIGH en route to ZIMBABWE - all supporting the notion that there is no one true way. :)
"Like Shakespeare's feet?" (IAMBIC) made me smile, as did the old chestnut, "Something you can always count on" (ABACUS). I find the expression "The ___ of one's existence" (BANE) crops up a lot in my life.
WATUSI ("1960's dance craze") is a real blast from the past. Also from the past, but with more modern applications, we have Jules VERNE and UNIX. I like the term WIIMOTES. It works on so many levels. Fill-wise, ASWIRL, SNOOZE, and LAX are nice.
The clue "Place to be pampered" made me think of a Simpson's episode ("Fear of Flying") in which Bart is apparently unfamiliar with the word in the DAYSPA sense, and is concerned about getting wrapped up in the commercial product.
The constructors and I come to a parting of the ways at GREW for "Increased, as the pot" but it didn't get in the way of enjoying the puzzle.
