  1. A definite funarama! A fortuitous True Detective gathering was swiftly repurposed and we commenced bending our brains. Lots of wonderfully enjoyable clues – we particularly laughed at 17 down and 15 across, and filled 11 across in smugly since several of us wasted our youths that very way. Needless to say, it was taxing. Very, very, taxing. 6 down in particular looked alluringly simple but it took us forever until someone finally hauled it out of a memory crevice. If you ever lie awake worrying you make these things too easy? DON’T BOTHER.
