LAT Fri. 5/25 Gagliardo & Burnikel
« on: May 25, 2012, 09:07:56 AM »
Possible Title: Double-ING Up

Good Ones:
Pier gp.   ILA
Pay stub?   OLA
Switch back?   EROO
Caesarean section?   VENI [tough one: it’s a section of the phrase with vidi and vinci]
Literary no-show   GODOT [love this one]
Theme: doubling of letters before –ing
Bit of surfing damage   BOARDDING
Basketball contest champ?   DUNKKING

Who knew?:
I didn’t know lots of them today: SEVE, NAS, DSL, NPRNEWS, TISH, LARGENT, ARLEEN, and KOH.  (Amazingly I knew LATOYA was Janice’s sister.)  I managed to do this in ink with no write-overs, due more to good puzzle construction than my skill.

Some Nits to Pick:
Like much rush hour traffic   STOPGO [the idiom is really “stop and go”]

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
