Tam Or Fez Crossword Clue 3 Letters
Tam Or Fez Crossword Clue 3 Letters – I like a set of answers with quirky letter collections. Today there are three consecutive Os and the revealer, appropriately enough, is at 65A: Another name for O3 (appropriate for 17-, 25-, 44- and 58-Across?) (OZONE). My favorite today is ITSAZOOOUTTHERE for ____ZOOOUTTH___ zany in between. My favorite is BOOOFFSTAGE because who wants to think about “boof” this year? Maybe next year will be enough.
There’s some weirdness to this Monday level puzzle. Some people may be uncomfortable starting with 1A: Post-Lecture Discussion, Informal (QANDA). This more experienced solver doesn’t have much trouble with it, but it’s a tough walk for newbies. Same with STELMO.

There aren’t a lot of interesting clues or answers. But I really like GEEWHIZ. Also, DROUGHT is one of those one-syllable words that somehow extends to seven letters.

This is another strange thing with English. __YPT can be completed in EGYPT or “crypt”. How different those two words are.
In any case, I hope everyone is celebrating tonight to celebrate a year gone by and hopefully what the New Year can bring. For anyone reading my little post, this is for you and yours. May 2019 be interesting, exciting and fulfilling.
Hey everybody! It’s coming up at the end of another year at HaFDtNYTCPFCA, as we mean this little effort. I like to imagine that we have a small office with venetian blinds and ceiling fans, and we are sitting in old desk chairs with collars open and ties pulled down, fanning ourselves the Crossword. Peter Gordon’s fireball, while we joke about which clues we like best.
Well, probably not, but we still love talking about quizzes, and I guess it’s impressive that near the end of this blog’s sixth year, we’re still going. I hope our readers enjoy our idiosyncratic puzzles.
How To Read Nancy (paul Karasik And Mark Newgarden)
Meanwhile, today, we have a topic that the article identifies as dropped from a popular phrase, then reassembled in an eccentric way. As always, the best examples of these are when words have to change their meaning in a significant way to accommodate the new meaning. Today’s winner (and a long shot in my opinion) comes in at 36A: Rated reason? (BACKSTAGE). I love how the first word goes from preposition to noun, and it’s a ludicrous thought, to have an entire scene in a movie just about human posterity.
There is, in fact, a distinct OUTOFBLUE feel to the puzzle, what with UNLACE, BRAS, can be HOTTUB in some circles, and of course, BREST. Too early?
I would praise the following: EAGERER (simply non-existent in use – I’d say “more eager”), IEST, and BTWO’s spelling.
Not many lengthy extras, but I enjoyed all the Bs in the NW, as well as the JAFAR and JUGHEAD right below. Overall, it was a challenging and quite enjoyable Sunday, which is really what I look for in a lazy day.

Today’s quiz is pretty easy for Saturday – definitely easier for me than it was yesterday. Maybe it’s the new trend. I’m offline at the moment or I’ll look back at recent Fridays and Saturdays to see if that’s trending.
It didn’t seem easy at first, as I got almost nothing the first time I went through the clues, but the downside made it more of a purchase. My first major stand is RUBYSLIPPERS.
TIMEMACHINE is another remarkable work. Horace and I discussed over dinner last night whether it’s possible to travel thanks to quantum entanglement. I like to think it will be possible.
Both Horace and I thought that “Maybe cry over spilled milk” (MOM) was weird, but luckily, the cross with “‘Triptych Bleu I, II, III,’ example:” (MIRO) helped. make that clear.
Hats Word Search
As PETERSOUT of the OLD year, I reflect on the past five trivia. I miss challenges (one of my unsolvable challenges – 12/1/2018), tricks, twists, LOL. Puzzles may not save the world, but they add spice to life. A LOT of best wishes to everyone for 2019. Happy New Year!
As the first of a trio of fifty stacks, LEADEROFTHEPACK is a good and fitting start. Right way! The next two points in the top three became clear as I walked down the track. I have heard of ALFAROMEOSPIDER but I am not familiar with oeuvreGOINGBACKTOCALI by Notorious B.I.G.
Stacking the bottom three is more of a challenge. Thanks to several key weaknesses, including the familiar chestnut Bert CONVY, I was able to guess the middle fifteen, ALLOVERCREATION. But, while I’ve heard of MATRYOSHKADOLLS, if someone asked me if I could spell their names on the top of my head, I’d say NOMAAM. ALAINRENELESAGE rang a vague bell, when I had completed the answer thanks to its insightful guesswork, but the name didn’t catch the eye. I read a bit about the man on Wikipedia. He seems like an interesting guy. Maybe I’ll read “Gil Blas.”
If I had to PICA nit, I’d say the MISDO for “Screw up” wasn’t great, but overall it was a nice Saturday.

I didn’t know the Carolina tribe allied with the colonists during the American Revolution (CATAWBA) and I couldn’t get the letter missing from the cross with 26A “‘You sti-i-i-ink'” (BOO), right even after several tries. I still don’t understand why the answer to 26A is a boo, but Horace explained that the clue refers to not the foul smell as in PU, which is all I can think of, but is “you’re not good at what you’re doing” kind of stinky. Derp.
I had another major slowdown in the middle of the east. I fell right into the trap set for me by the builders by putting in the sAW for “Something with teeth” instead of the exact JAW. That made it difficult for me to get the JETSTREAM, which in turn made it difficult for me to complete the sub. Well, that and the fact that I can’t get an OMEGA (Rolex competitor) or PALO (Texas’ ___ Duro Canyon) without most of the crosses. I think putting “Cassasio Rivals” (IAGO) in the same niche as Rolex and Omega is very smart and in the right direction.
Grid shapes are now part of the theme. The black squares near the center form the shape of an airplane that appears to be emitting a diagonal line of rebus squares to literally form a [CON]TRAIL. Higher in the grid, we have SKYWRITER as an additional material.
Although some of the rest of the puzzle put me off (GEAROIL, MOLERAT, YESITIS, BASSI, ARA, NOWI, SONE, TOALL), I appreciate the work. 🙂

While I wouldn’t call this puzzle CINCH, I was exactly on the same wavelength as Mr. Barkin this morning. There are only three “things to know” that I don’t know (NAOMI, REESE and JESSE). I even found out about KFC (One of the Yum brands!) thanks to our friend’s annual Kentucky Derby party. Although, I have only just learned that the sponsor of Derby, as of 2018, is Woodford Reserve. Now that’s what I call apt. 🙂 CHIA (___ Pet) and GINSU (Old commercial knife) are right in my garage. If you’re like me and you have a bit of a taste for the old information genre, check out this great Steve Goodman song called “Vegematic”.
I quite liked today’s topic, although I didn’t fully appreciate its scope until after settlement. Each clue suggests a more appropriate star for a movie based on that person’s last name for which the theme answer is a synonym. For example, “The movie should really have Anne Archer?” is ROBINHOOD. My favorite is “The movie should really have Vin Diesel?” (BEETLEJUICE). Ha! I think SPIDERMAN for Weaver (as in Sigourney), although not the wreck (nid), is a bity long stretch of it. Too much?
One suggestion/answer pair that I particularly like is “Less untrue” (FIB). That’s the kind of clue/answer pair that I enjoy because the clue is written so the answer has to be what it is, if you know what I mean. In this case, one could guess another three-letter word that means dishonesty (lie), but the clue is written in such a way that you know the answer is FIB; Even if you don’t know it right away, you know it when you get it. I also enjoyed some self-referencing crossword puzzle clues “Reference added ‘crossword player’ (a crossword player) in 2006” (OED) and “Pencil after so many crosswords ” (NUB).
If you like Christmas and all its decorations, you really like today’s theme. 🙂 The Revealer is a seasonal song (OTANNENBAUM) that hints at the traditional deck for the holiday tree. The last words of the other four answers give us aJUDY GARLAND, aSUGAR CANE, anLOSANGELES ANGEL, all of which are headed by AMOVIE STAR. Lovely.
