8 hours? That is
NOT a small number!
(beware: Strongbad link!) Not when it is the number of hours spent in this bar in one night,

Confidential to C., who does not read this* : sorry I ditched you on the train back to

Although I woke up at 10 this morning anyway. Fucking morning-person brain. But now I am
medicating with the Sunday NY Times and coffee and lounging with the sleepful cats. I did
most of the regular crossword, and tried to start the diagramless, but on the page where it
usually has the clue for the starting square it just said "1-Across in this week's
diagramless puzzle begins in square xxxx of the top row." What? "xxxx"??? Oh, shut it.
* Which, on further consideration, means that in addition to not being confidential, this is
also not really to C. 0 for 2!
