Today seemed like an difficult one, but I did only slightly below average in the end. I could only find one pangram. Saved by criticized, but z is such a useless letter in this neighbourhood, at least as my vocabulary goes. :sadnod:

The Asmo wanders off to read Himself a back end of a dictionary.

286 today. I got only one word with a "z" in it. Good letters yesterday- I scored 332 then.

Catching up on the weekend's ones, and yesterday's did not accept Magnetar. The Asmo ought to write a crossly-worded letter to someone on behalf of really cool dead stars everywhere, is what He ought! :rant1:

A somewhat-sleepy The 'Smo set a new personal best today. :smilenod:

Slightly-dissatisfied because missed a couple of good ones I thunk up when reviewing my answers, but all in all... 370! Next milestone, 400. :smilenod: The dictionary shall bow before His glory!

Tried today to see just how many extra points hid in padding the words as much as possible (Plurals, present participle, posts- and pres- etc) with a slight amendment to my "no same root" rule - same or similar root is OK as long as the meaning of the word is changed completely. (Example: port vs. transport. One is a big, stationary place full of boats. The other is moving stuff between places.)

I kinda' like it. Might non-cheat cheat this way in the future. :smilenod:
