Sat., 10/19 Peterson & Wilber

(1/1)

magus:
THEME:   none, but 30 blocks, two fifteeners, and two triple gangs
   
GOOD ONES:    
High anxiety?   ACROPHOBIA   
Montreal (with acute accent)   NOM [a label is a name]   
Mariner's org.   NASA [I thought NOAA at first, not the spaceship]   
Freed from radio music   ALAN [the first rock D.J. --- maybe better without "music"]   
M.'s counterpart   MLLE [I thought James Bond, not French titles]   
Woolf pack?   BLOOMSBURY GROUP [knew right off it was Virginia but it took awhile to remember the literary group]   
   
BTW:   
Don't know why FETTUCCINE isn't fettuccini.   
   
Steak-and-kidney-pudding ingredient   SUET [that's what I feed to my birds --- no wonder English food has a bad rep]   
   
Abbey nook   APSE [doubt an abbey would have an apse, which is found in cathedrals and large churches]   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
