Happy Tues... *gets whispered in the ear* uhh... Thursday apparently! That’s right, I haven’t disappeared and travelled into the great unknown… yet. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve last posted a crossword here on Trash Panda Puzzles. I’ve been busy IRL working on transitioning to my new role at work, so I haven’t had as much reserve brain power that I usually like to have around. As such, my free time lately has consisted primarily of video games, TV, and lots of naps.

So, what’s new with this crossword? It’s on the smaller side at a 9x8 grid. You’ll notice that it’s oval-ish in shape. I know there are folks who quite enjoy this grid style, so I focused on putting one together like this. I’m totally not sorry for putting 10-Across into a puzzle and in turn, in your head. Happy solving!
