I am a lover of crosswords, especially weird-looking ones. So I was delighted to see one in the paper on my birthday last Saturday. It was shaped like a swiss roll (in other words, swirled.) After a few minutes, I thought "this is hard, even for a Saturday!" But I persisted. Gave up, and went back to it later. I think I have done it. Although I don't see how "legislators" are ones on a diet. I thought it was a really cool crossword idea, so I thought I'd take a stab at making one in the same grid.
I thought the shape was a peppermint, so I put the word "peppermint" in the puzzle, the only place it would fit. Then I worked around it. Like solving the first puzzle, I gave up once after making a mistake. But I persisted and eventually finished it. I had fun making this, so I'm going to make a second one with the word "Dreamcast" in it. The black squares are swirling around, just like the Dreamcast logo.
I know not many of you do them or even care, but I read that doing them makes you really smart. I've learned a lot from them. And doing them when you're a geezer keeps your mind sharp. Grandma used to do crosswords, which is how I got started. If any of you care, I'll send you my crossword if you PM me. Too bad I have nobody to do them. It's also a good way to pass time when you're bored and don't want to work on making video games.
I have a lot of cake to eat, so I'm happy. We also got some pizza. We tried this new place called "Pizza Now" It is good. At first I didn't like it, but now I do. I guess I acquired a taste for it. They use a TON of cheese on it.
