LAT Sun. 1/1 Gia Christian
« on: January 01, 2012, 09:32:25 AM »
January First

Village celebrity?  IDIOT
Theme: Intrusive J…
“Ode on a Grecian Urn” genre?   JARSPOETICA
Halloween carving of a Yankee hero?   PUMPKINJETER

 8) “January First” title suits the day, of course, but June and July would fit the theme as well.

 ???
H.S. proficiency tests   GEDS  [last week I had the same question: isn’t the GED the diploma, the test being the “GED test”]

Comfort food…  [do I hate the term because all food is comforting, it is a New Age coinage for fattening food, or because I’m simply disagreeable?]

 :(
Suffix with access   ORY [really not a suffix --- merely the rest of the word from what was a suffix in Latin]
ETRE
OJOS


RATING:   ;D [for a Sunday] Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = No fun

 :-\ Seems that either I or the LAT is not off to a great start this year.

Chaise Longue? Shouldn't that be Lounge?

"all food is comforting" - I disagree; how about anchovies or okra? Not comforting to me in any case!

RBE: 
That is a correct spelling except I can't remember seeing it spelt [spelled] that way.

WORLDOFCROSSWORDS:
I hate anchovies also, but my parents loved them; and I would imagine to someone who is hungry they would be comforting, even to us --- well, I'd have to be starving.

How is a stave a "barrel support"—wouldn't that be the part of the barrel that the hoops support?  I might have clued it as "musical piece?" although that's perhaps a bit too clever.

Chaise longue comes from the French ("Long chair"), though my dictionary also lists chaise lounge as having gained acceptance, presumably through long misuse.

DrewE---

Not sure what's clever about stave in music (or poetry), but I do agree that the staves are essentially the barrel.  Would walls be considered the house support?  We'll have to consult the Miller Analogy Test constructors.
