why do people complete crossword puzzles in all capital letters?  i can barely be bothered to use capital letters when required - only at work.  i never use all capital letters when writing unless i want to yell at someone.  so, why the capitals when working a crossword puzzle?  hmm...

my new year's resolution is to complete crossword puzzles.  inelastic was a clue in my crossword this morning that i just couldn't figure out!  the clue was "lacking flexibility" DUH!!  you'd think i'd know that because of yoga.  

why the goal?  Mac, my stepdad, creates crossword puzzles and it is his goal to be in the NY Times.  he has been published in local seattle papers over the past couple of months has sent me a couple of his puzzles.  it may have taken me four days for each of them but, i completed two out of three!  i'm still working on the third.  he did say it was harder than the others :)  hopefully, by the end of the year, i will be able to complete more than the easy Monday crosswords and i'll be able to complete Mac's in less than four days!

Good luck with the resolution - crosswords always have a way of making me feel really uneducated.

Clicking the link of your Yoga studio I just about fell out of my seat! $20 for 20 days!?! That is crazy and I imagine leads to sessions packed with people (atleast for the month of January).

i don't really do crosswords, but i think if i did i would write in all caps. i usually type in all lowercase, and i write in both upper and lower although not when i'm supposed to, but i think i would do crosswords in all caps! i'm not sure why though...
