Well, I fell asleep an hour before the Thursday NYT launched on the applet. Yes, that means I was out cold by 8:00 Central. What can I say? I needed to catch up on sleep. And I've come down with something involving a cough, laryngitis, and an inability to focus. I got through the NYT puzzle by Rich Silvestri just fine, but I struggled to stay awake through Anthony Salvia's puzzle, and now I can't think of anything to say about either puzzle. That's no knock on the puzzles—blame the miscellaneous virus or bacterium that's in charge. My couch is calling to me more strongly than the LA Times and CrosSynergy puzzles right now, so you know I must be sick. Too worn out for 6 or 7 more minutes of puzzles? Maybe someone should call an ambulance. (Just kidding—the couch is all I need.)
