grampa simpson says...

"i've been doin [crossword puzzles] since 1958. back then we called em alphabet hotels because every letter gets its own little room."

i recently decided that i would try and become a crossword aficionado like my dad. (my dad is like ridic.. so many words in his head.) so far i mostly do the free usa today ones online, but they're getting easier for me to complete, so that's good. if i was rich i would do the nyt ones but i don't have the newspaper, nor am i going to pay for the online subscription just so i can do the crossword.
i bought a book at half price books for $1 that has lots of puzzles but they're all really easy and also pretty stupid.
the point is that i've been slacking in my quest to be a master (or at least legitimate cruciverbalist, which lisa simpson taught me means a crossword enthusiast), and watching the simpsons today rekindled the want.

ALSO, the point is that watching the simpsons today made me remember that i should watch the simpsons again. god it's so good.
