What fun! To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the New York Times Crossword puzzle, they’ve tipped their hat to “Dancing With the Stars” by teaming celebrities up with regular crossword contributors to make “Crosswords With the Stars”. Ok, they don’t call it that, but I’ve got on too much makeup, hair extensions, and huge high heels anyway. These puzzles will appear once a month throughout the year. They’ve had Bill Clinton, Jesse Eisenberg, Lisa Loeb, and today, it’s Patrick Merrell and me! Our puzzle is “Modern-Day Remake”. And we got to be the guest bloggers today on the NY Times Wordplay site, talking about how we did “Crosswords With the Stars”. If you’d like more laughter, read the last NY Times Wordplay blog I did on solving that Sunday’s puzzle. Have fun solving! (I love Patrick Merrell’s sketch above of our mousy time together.)
Just in: Yes, they do indeed review crossword puzzles. Read our raves:
From my friend Iliza Shlesinger (and her cute little thumb):
Went and grabbed a @nytimes crossword because @ElayneBoosler – one of my favorite women in comedy, is featured in it. This is so fucking cool
@iliza #SpoilerAlert thanks @ElayneBoosler for a fun @nytimes crossword!
