A woman teaches him the rudiments of the Texas two-step; so, too, did the US devise the crossword and export it to Britain.
The system of apartheid he fled is crammed with double meanings. He even writes in short sentences and paragraphs, just like lists of clues slightly overdoing it: my only criticism. Rushing to the maternity hospital with a dilated girlfriend, he compulsively works at a niggling clue: "potty train 4 ". Minutes from delivery, she gasps that she must be mad to give birth again. Of course! Potty equals mad equals "loco", which means train. It is seven years of half-completed crosswords before the proud moment when he completes his first puzzle in a broadsheet.
Driving in South Africa, he is left with just one clue after weeks of struggle: "XI ay 7 ". A hitch-hiker asks him how Everton football club got its name — and accidentally presents him with the answer. XI equals a team; ay equals ever; is a ton. Balfour punches the air in triumph. He hits a cow; it ends up on his bonnet. It sounds like a clue: "Bonneted cow not over moon".
Sometimes, reality and puzzles become too entwined. By an awful mischance, the Telegraph printed "outcry at Tory assassination 4,6 " on the very day the IRA blew up the Conservative junior minister Ian Gow. It was indeed a "blue murder". Balfour battles with cryptic crosswords, much tougher than the quick or, in my case, slow type. Given the brains needed to solve them, can you imagine the mental abilities of the boffins who set them?
Balfour interviews these folk, most of whom use a nom de plume, or rather nom de clue: Plodge; Tampi; Axed and Afrit. He persuades the doyen of the setters to celebrate Balfour's 40th birthday by incorporating, in a crossword published on that day, autobiographical words such as "Sandy". The title, Pretty Girl in Crimson Rose 8 , is not one of those clues. It dates back to Balfour's early days as a crossword freak.
The answer is "rebelled". Don't ask me why. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here. Want to discuss real-world problems, be involved in the most engaging discussions and hear from the journalists?

I just googled [Diurnal poem] and Wordsworth was the first hit! Some of it stuck! Overall, the fill is just OK, but about as polished as it has any right to be given the onerous pressure the theme puts on the grid. Happy 11th birthday to this blog.
The Bloggiversary is always a good time to revisit the first comment my blog ever got. A classic of its kind. Everything about it is so pure. Save And Share :. I stay up a little past my normal bedtime so I could post the following article from yesterday's NYTimes about climate change where everyone could see it. It has nothing to do with today's puzzle but I thought some of you might find it interesting. Happy blogiversary, Rex. I thought the theme was cutesy-wootsy. I hope that you don't mind my saying so.
Rex: Love the fact that commenters have been criticizing your criticism from day one. Fun theme. Thanks Bruce. Even Will Shortz had to come in and straighten Gaffney out! You forgot to diss the reference to the Brylcreem ad, which goes back, what, years? Much easier than most Mondays, even. Just annoyingly easy - like, why bother? PS: Glad you ignored that a-hole. That phrase actually relates to the "sophisticated" clue.
When I got the "almost there" I went back and spotted the mistake. The only viable alternative was T, irregardless of how ugly the answer was. Rex, listen to Grandpamike! Animal behavior and all that. Ever have a pet hamster fire up the wheel at 3 am? I have no problem with the legitimacy of those symmetrical themers.
The rest I have heard all of my life. Some of the smartest decisions I made growing up were due to my inherent timidity. Be a sissy or do something really dumb? Young men often make poor choices. There are so many talented young players and pitchers in the game right now, and I'm pumped for October. I hope those Santa ANA winds spare my part of the world this season. Speaking of poor choices, when I was a kid, driving a VW was the coolest thing.
My favorites were a '66 bug and a '70 van. No AC, barely a heater, lousy gas mileage, puny electrical system, and a rigorous maintenance schedule. And, they always smelled like burned motor oil. Good Monday puzzle Dr. Surprised that the editor allowed Ping-Pong as a clue.
Isn't it Table Tennis? Wiktionary says otherwise. All my thoughts on this puzzle were stated by others. Rex is reaching self parody lately. The first is pejorative; the second is not. This is one usage where advanced age has the advantage.
I loved grampamike's comment. Where are you now, Grampy? Still lurking, I hope. I'm with TokyoRacer on the easy rating. This was so easy it was painful to complete. It's a Monday outlier. I don't know how I knew this but I must have absorbed it just by living. Thank goodness it was included.
In many ways I'm sure a Monday puzzle must be the most difficult to construct, so I'm inclined to applaud all Monday constructors. Go Bruce! One can't make it too easy or most solvers will complain. It needs to be easy and clever at once to be a stellar Monday. How Rex found this medium challenging is beyond me. Can't say I care for that particular clueing, at all. Oooh, ouch. I can see where that one touched Rex off. Otherwise, an okay Monday.

Medium for me. I think this is a nifty idea, and in this case I happily forgive the cross-referencing. Funny how many expressions we have that work this way: hanky panky, willy nilly, teeny weeny, tighty whitey Tighty whities. Must be our age.
TokyoRacer - the clue for DAB reminded me instantly of the commercial. Actually, I just brushed for a second. I used to resort to that. Used to. Before I accepted the fact that my husband is not really that handy. The problem is, this absolutely does not hold him back. Killing wasps, repairing a piece of wood on our deck, hanging pictures, fixing a broken screen door. No duct tape for this guy. Caulk all the way, baby. Larry — you have some turns of phrases that make me laugh.
To all those playing the animal group game yesterday — I saw a picture of two crows on a bench with the caption Attempted Murder. Thanks, Bruce. Easy breezy Monday. Yeah, Robin, that dictionary would have been a little off at my house. More descriptive of someone who doesn't have the courage of their convictions. I disagree with Rex that the word pairs made the puzzle more difficult.
They rhymed, so for me anyway they made it very easy. Solve time here was a near-record after a nine-hour drive doing battle with The Trucks of Intersate Eighty. Bruce gives much credit to Frank Longo for this puzzle in his Xword comments. Bruce came up with the theme, Will wasn't happy with the fill, and the puzzle went to Frank who "pretty much redid the whole puzzle from the ground up".
And while Monday is the only day of the week in which Frank hasn't published a puzzle, he refused to be listed as a co-constructor. Class act. I'm amazed when constructors come up with themes that haven't been done before, this being one of them, and props for the creativity, Bruce.

I like that all the theme answers start with the across word, and the theme is hunky-dory cute. Clean grid. Quick and bright. Meanwhile, with the mumbo jumbo and hanky panky going on you know where, today, just today, I'm willy nilly going to make it go hocus pocus, and hokey pokey all day. LMS, I think we have to restrict our lists to pairs that not only rhyme, but differ only in the first letter. Makes it harder for us, and admirable in the constructor.
Good Monday. Far more fun than most Mondays, and - to toot my own own - my fastest Monday ever or at least since I started using the iPad app, which tracks such things. I try this dress on -- holds the garment bag out towards Jerry -- Stunning. I couldn't take my eyes off myself. Jerry: Yeah.
Elaine: OK, so then I put it on at home. Elaine: Yeah exactly. Anyway I've got to go over there and return it. Well, if you're going to pretend to be ED at least you're quoting Seinfeld. I was thinking of George Thorogood singing about his landlady "Lawd, she was lovey dovey. Lewis, Interesting about Frank Longo being too hoity toity to put his name on a Monday puzzle. Don't know what I make of that.

Also don't get Rex's reaction to namby pamby. Protesting too much? I am amazed at the anniversary date. Even more astounding is that I've been following this blog since I wonder what has become of some of the old crowd. I miss foodie. That was one smart lady. Learn something every day. LMS - I have very few words that I am offended by. I long ago came to the belief that pejoratives say more about the the caster than than the castee. Holding down the quote mark key gave me six quote mark options, with the html preferred " being one of them.
The animal group comments yesterday were stellar. JC66, nice job on the article. Larry, coffee did go up my nose. LMS, my rule of etiquette is that if men are going to allow their pants to droop, they should wear somethimg more interesting than tighty whities underneath. Fortunately, I admit that I'm grateful my son never adopted the droopy drawers look.
I have to sometimes remind my husband to tighten his belt when his pants sometimes drift a little towards that direction. Lewis, I think you've confiscated all the remaining good ones. The only one I could come up with was from a fuzzy memory of a book from my early childhood, with a title something like "My Little Kitten". I'm sure it was intended as a sweet little book and that's how it sounded to me at the time.
Anyway, I have a vague memory of the child in that book calling out for the pussy wussy that was either hiding or missing. It was intended to be critical of Philips' poetry and politics. Anyway, apparently Arden Reed failed to cover this. Happy blogoversary!!! Oh the puzzle.. But almost got Naticked at St. Denis crossing Thora.. What a fun puzzle. Think I've been coming here 10 years!!! Isn't ST. Political correctness is a curse of the small-minded. Namby Pamby offends no one. It's a put-down.
Too bad she never married Arnold and became Hotsy Horshack I still love that punchline. Of the five expressions that form the theme of the puzzle, I honestly have never heard of three used in conversation. So potential naticks in three squares. The cross-referencing is annoying in any puzzle. But to me, having never used it or heard it in the wild, the former sounds like a pejorative.
Nothing to do with age, Hartley and Loren, since I happen to know I'm older than both of you. It's where you grew up. I would never use the phrase to express sophistication, no matter what Elaine Benes may say. I was up really early today ! Wish today's forecast wasn't for "very warm and humid. The expression "namby pamby" applies especially well to anyone who is offended by said phrase. Being an older and long-term puzzle doer I still prefer to print it out and do it in ink, though I am completely computer literate and occasionally do it online and remember the Maleska days of MUCH higher culture, I confess to remembering the actual Brylcreem slogan: "A little dab'll do ya.
Regarding "hotsy-totsy," it sounds, and is, Runyonesque, though Damon Runyon claimed he did not coin it. Don't recall if Frank Loesser used it in "Guys and Dolls," but it sounds as if he might have done.
