Possible Title: Five-Star Saturday

Theme:  In this case, the grid is the theme, and it's impressive.

Good Ones:
Items from drawers   CELS [read “drawers” as two syllables]
Valuable floor coverings   SUNKENTREASURES

By the Way:
Crossing SHEA and AKER is a bit unsporting.

Cartesian conclusion   SUM  [I thought “I am.”  Didn’t think Latin so I had to write over my wrong answer.]

Who knew?:
there was such a word as “bracketology” --- guess it’s for college basketball scheduling.  Is there a word “seedology” defining the “science” of deciding who should play whom in a tournament.  Perhaps “tounamentology” would be the larger study with bracketology and seedology being studies subsumed under it.

Internet ERA seems too new to be used now since we are in the midst of it.  It’s a bit like referring to the TV era, or the microwave era, or the automobile era.  Maybe worse since TV’s, microwaves, and autos may be replaced one day; hard to see the Internet replaced.  Anyway, such terms seem best left to historians with the benefit of hindsight.

Some Nits to Pick:
“Avril” and MAI [I’d go with “Actress Britt” or “One of Sammy’s wives”]

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
