This year, we try (with intent) to improve. That’s my anagram clue for TWENTY-THIRTEEN, which just arrived on my porch this morning, along with a labrador frazzled by the fireworks. Hope you all survived your evenings, and have a wonderful, wordy new year.
If you haven’t voted for Clue of the Year, then do so soon, as I’ll be crowning the winner later this week. Just head for the poll in the right margin. Pull in other cryptic nuts to bid too.
A reminder for radio hounds, I’ll be piloting Learnage, my chat show with Oslo Davis on Triple-R tonight, from 8-10. We’ll be chatting with Carolyn Fraser, a printer of the first water, plus an expert on historic games. If you can’t tune in, podslurp. And suggest some cool tracks for next week.
Since when is Andy Capp not a Cockney? Okay, ‘e comes from 'artlepool in NE England, but that’s his only demerit. If a geezer talks like Cockney, walks like a Cockney, drinks 'ard like a Cockney, isn’t he a Cockney?!
Konjac is the voodoo lily. Dramality blends drama with reality TV. Green tape is an eco-imbroglio. Citizen science is the lay grasp of Dr Karl issues. Silo mentality and wine flu….six nominees for Macquarie’s Word of 2012. Feel free to suggest more here. And vote onsite from January 7. Or clue them any of the half-duzz for new year kudos.
