It's about Will Shortz, the NY Times crossword puzzle, puzzle maniacs and the annual crossword tournament. (Yes, there is a tournament.) I remember the name Will Shortz from long before he was the NY Times puzzle editor. I subscribed to Games magazine when I was in highschool and his name was everywhere in that publication. The movie is really interesting and I've been inspired to put pencil to paper more regularly with my morning coffee.
I haven't finished one yet. I get close on Mondays and Tuesday and by Thursday I'm not really even trying. (The puzzles get harder throughout the week.) I love that the Times puzzle always has some kind of theme that carries through the whole puzzle. Clever.
When I'm done puttering with the puzzle (my attention span is probably about 5 minutes), I read For Better For Worse, Funky Winkerbean and Zits. Nearly four full pages of comics and I only read three. I miss Fox Trot, though.
I hope you have a --- five letter word for wonderful beginning with G -- day!
