  1. okayyy i am founding the No Times Club, party of one, membership me, because i do not have a go-getter nature and i’m realizing that trying to Do It Fast, even when successful, is detracting from my enjoyment of the crosswording experience.

    so! that aside, today’s puzzle was interesting because i hit a wall pretty quickly trying to do the across ones in order, but i switched to working backwards from the last down clue and it was smooth sailing.
