Today's puzzle is, they tell me, filled with Taylor SWIFT songs. I don't think I've ever knowingly heard one, so I can't put them in order of my own preference or anything like that, but I guess if I had to rank them by title alone - which I don't - I'd say:
Tuesday, July 5, 2022
Tuesday, July 5, 2022, Malgorzata Nowakowska and Eileen Williams
Unless DEARJOHN is a cover of the John Prine song, then I might reconsider. But no, I said I was ranking them by title alone, and I still think that's a weaker title.
In non-theme material, I like one of the two long Downs - STORYBOOK (Perfect, as a romance), but PUTUPJOBS (Well-orchestrated ruses) is not a term I'm familiar with. It's not like I FREAKED about it or anything, and it wasn't as wholly unknown to me as La ROCHE-Posay, but I did need to AMASS a HEAP of crosses before I put it in.
After yesterday's diatribe and today's verbal shoulder shrug, I'm starting to think that IOWEYOU a decent review. Here's hoping I find something to GRASP onto in tomorrow's grid.
