RC, TH and I are all back in Melbourne, and hopefully on Sunday we’ll be having a long-missed crack at the crossword over a coffee.
Between then and now, though, go forth and talk.
Update: And now here it is!
RC and I got together at the Espy on Sunday to wither in the face of this DA onslaught. We only got half of this one done before looking at the answers and figuring out that submitting early was perhaps a wise move. This was certainly one of the hardest I’d encountered in a while, and many of the answers bordered on the wantonly recondite (taffrail, ningaloo, compos menti) in a way reminiscent of DH’s triviafests-cum-crosswords.
In short, I’m glad I didn’t waste too much time cracking a DA that I would put in the too-hard basket.
