Next up: it's time for another entry in the BEQ.com Fan of the moment Photo Essay thingy. I really should come up with a suitable blanket phrase for this recurring feature, but I'm at a loss. No matter, Please give it up for Wyna Liu of New York City. She's not in the Hudson, though. Wyna writes: "Recently got back from a cruise with a stop at Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. A friend told me people like to do crosswords while floating around so I printed out a few before I left. I think this one was Cheat Sheet? Got a few clues in before flipping over and getting everything wet. Was happy that I got to CSONKA though, reminded me of both football and American Gladiators."
Now there's commitment to puzzling, and then there's commitment to puzzling. Are my pockets overstuffed with sudoku when I'm leaving my house? Yes, yes they are. A man's gotta be distracted somehow when he's forced to go shopping with his wife. Do I do them whilst driving a car? Yes, yes I do. But have I ever done them while swimming? Never. Anybody whose gone with me to the beach, knows I'm not a beach person. I wear turtlenecks, blue jeans and huge brimmed hats to a beach. I wear sunscreen with SPF numbers in the low 100s. I don't tan, I get cancer. And when it comes to, you know, actually getting into the water, I torture myself by submerging myself slowly, one skin cell at a time. Basically, if the water isn't like bath temperatures, I'm a baby.
Where was I? Oh yeah, Wyna. She sent this other pic as well. Nice to get her in action plus the landscape. So yeah, the bar has
been set, ladies and germs. We've now had
a confirmed BEQ sighting in Jerusalem. I'm offering a free lifetime subscription to this here site to anybody who has a BEQ sighting
on the International Space Station. Keep those photos coming in! Anyway, for Wyna's bravado, she gets a copy of "Diagramless."
Quickly, thanks to all who were able to help
in the dead laptop fund. Tip jar's always
open (hint, hint). In the meantime: share
the puzzle. New one on Monday.
