THEMELESS:  26 blocks!

Lying often involves them   MATTRESSES

There are three words which are almost never used any longer:  WEAL, FILCH, HALE. 
But there are also most current terms: LALA, NASCAR's Nextel Cup, "Six Feet Under"s NATE, Weather Channel's SEIDEL.
But there are more traditional references: ADONAIS, AMAT, LEE, ELIOT.
There were even science entries: PERIGEE, VEGA, ENOL, SEDGE
And my favorite entry:  WAIMEABAY because it recalls the song from a happy time of my youth.    :)  Thanks, Barry.

Yes, it was a toughie, but the difficulty of using only 26 blocks is impressive, and the widely divirgent subject matter stretched me.  I feel taller.

Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
