WAIT ONE MORE
Administrative Assistant (by way of lies)
Hot Dog Deliveryman
Possibly one of the best and least offensive-to-womankind romantic comedies ever.
@sam.i.am I got like 10 on my own, looked up the professions of characters in movies to get another 10 or so (I had no idea what Harry or Sally did). Now I NEED HELP.
@Ophelia YES PLEASE
So sad that
did not make the list. Also,
Watermelon carrier/future world relief organizer
Did not make it either
@Father Brown Start with easier puzzles, and just DO THEM every day. A big part of getting better at solving crosswords is practice, because as Ben mentions in the article, there are now certain types of wordplay that are particular to crosswords. You learn to read the way a clue is written in order to come up with a not-so-obvious response, but you'll only learn it if you try and keep trying. Maybe get a book with answers in the back, because there will be types of word play that you will miss and will need to see the answer for, so you can kick yourself and learn about crossword style.
@Anne Helen Petersen I was kind of hoping for some b-side about which I was unaware, then I recognized the sentiment associated with the song, and finally, the lyric. Haha.
I also want to thank the writers for posting "Hot Knife" because I haven't really given Idler Wheel the attention I should, but this song is soooo amazing. Especially seeing her face in the video. Is that... joy? For Fiona? Yay.
@mlle.gateau "I Know" is my favorite song to sing in the shower, and then cry in the shower about, since I"m certain it was about PTA and now he's married to Maya Rudolph.
I hate to be an asshole (well, not really), but "Under the Waves" is actually called "Sullen Girl." God, did I wear out my copy of Tidal. Still one of my favorite albums ever. And so great to sing along with, no super high notes.
omg before I even read this, I must say that I went to Hunk-O-Mania for a bachelorette party that I organized about 8 years ago. It was HILARIOUS, but kind of horrible. The funniest part was that I was kind of horrified, as were my fellow slutty friends, but the pregnant, normally kind of conservative (in terms of flagrant displays of sexuality) bride LOVED it. So weird.
