i Cryptic Crossword 894 Tees (and not Glow-Worm as the i would have us believe)

December 20, 2013

Well, it obviously wasn’t Glow-Worm… Twice this week? Is this an added challenge for the idothei bloggers, to make finding the old blogs more difficult?

This was lots of fun, and less challenging than yesterday. I did think, though, that a few bits were overly obscure. take = recipe = r in 24ac? Disco biscuits = ecstasy = e in 17d? Surely there could have been a better way? πŸ™‚

I’ve got loads of ticks by the clues, anyway, but my COD goes to 26ac. ‘Philosopher down under taking healthy dip? (7)’.

Here’s a link to the 2009 blog, and the one clue missed.

    It’s weird. I found Glow-worm on Thursday quite jolly and fun; about average difficulty, but Tees on Friday really, really hard. Must prove something but I’m not quite sure what! πŸ™‚
