Word Search: Dana Fairbanks Memorial Tavern

Taking it very easy today with a chill look back at some of our fondest single-word memories from the first two seasons of The L Word: Generation Q, plus some names we’re looking forward to seeing in Season 3.

  1. can i just say i am extremely excited about the puzzle content happening here

    as for this one, i’m not sure 5:21 is a time to be proud of OR what it says that ‘therapy’ was the last word i found, but i had fun/perhaps the real word search is the portmanteaus we made along the way/thanks for the memories etc etc

  2. Ha! As long as we’re reading into this, the fact that I found therapy easy peasy but struggled with poker and karaoke…hmmm

    Also, agree with all who are loving this content. Would buy puzzle book in an instant.

  3. 8 minutes, which I was proud of until I saw people at nearly half my time. Oh well! But this puzzle was the self-soothing my squirrel brain needed tonight, so I’ll take it.

  4. I remember at some point there was an announcement that Laurel Holloman wasn’t returning to Gen Q and I was so relieved.

    Then she reappeared and I could feel what was going to happen. It’s like when my knee hurts before it’s going to rain.

    I know what’s coming and like any other force of nature I cannot stop it.
