Puzzle #86: “A Perfect Place”

Posted by on 25th February 2009

The grave’s a fine and private place,
But none I think do there embrace.
— Andrew Marvell

Enjoy the above couplet.  It has absolutely nothing to do with the puzzle, but it’s fine poetry.  As for the puzzle itself, it’s a bit different this week.  Just remember that all is not as it appears, and you should win through to success.

Puzzle #85: “Tool Time”

Posted by on 17th February 2009

Well, hopefully you’ve made it through the worst of the winter, and it’s time to see whether your house made it through intact.  Got some holes in the roof?  A leaky faucet?  No problem.  Just pull out your handy tool chest and get to work.  In no time at all, you’ll find that there’s no problem so small that it can’t be made into a big problem with the application of the right equipment.  Then you won’t feel at all guilty about calling in the roofer, the plumber, and anyone else you might need.  You might find yourself with some holes in your wallet and a leaky bank account, but no system is perfect.

Puzzle #84: “I’ll Call You”

Posted by on 10th February 2009

The official publication time of this puzzle is Wednesday, February 11th — which is practically the same as Saturday, February 14th.  Thus, we know what most young men are thinking about:  how the heck they are going to get restaurant reservations after they put everthing off till the last minute.  We are so moved by this touching sentiment that we cannot resist putting out our very own black, white, and highly symmetric tribute to this wonderful season of chocolates, flowers, and overpriced greeting cards.

Puzzle #83: “I Go to Pieces”

Posted by on 4th February 2009

When I see her comin’ down the street
I get so shaky and I feel so weak
I tell my eyes look the other way
But they don’t seem to hear a word I say

And I, go to pieces and I wanna hide
Go to pieces and I almost die
Everytime my baby passes by

— Del Shannon
