Happy Friday! Do you ever feel like there's something you're forgetting to do, or that you forgot that you forgot? Yeah, it's been that kind of a week for me. One thing I didn't forget to do is have a new 15x crossword ready for everyone here at Trash Panda Puzzles! I admit, I'm starting to feel bad for not giving these puzzles titles, but I struggle to come up with something that summarizes the entire crossword. If there's anyone out there who's great at coming up with titles, give me a holler, I could use the help.

Enough about titles, onto the meat of this crossword! This grid has several nice and chunky bits to it along with a fascinatingly placed ladder of 3-letter words going diagonally across the puzzle. I gave myself quite the chuckle when the idea for 23-Down's clue popped in my head. Should the clue have a question mark? Probably. Oh well, it's an indie website after all. ;)
