This’ll be a quick post today, as I’m writing this from my hotel room at the 44th American Crossword Puzzle Tournament when I’d really prefer to be in the lobby at the ACPT soaking up the vibes. Spending time with agreeable nerds: highly recommend, 10/10 will repeat in 2023.
Brief thoughts and spoilers for “Party at the ACPT” below.
Parker and I spent much of yesterday sprinting into and out of the ballroom to variously solve puzzles and hawk wares. But thereafter? The party was thrown, and it was good.
Honestly, I’m a little surprised I can’t really think of another word that’s used to the describe the state of being affected by a particular recreational drug. Maybe K Hole? Anything else? Speaking of JUNIOR HIGH, Paolo Pasco is a junior and super high in the standings! What a guy! Kudos to him. Search #ACPT on Twitter to get regularly updates on the finals this afternoon.
Happy solving, friends!
