Love crossword puzzles. The newspaper offerings (one Democrat&Cronicle and another from the New York Times) seem to start on a more easier version on Monday - leading into a harder one(s) on Friday's edition with Saturday and Sunday being quite the hard thing. When I was bartending years ago - I had some people who would come in on the weekends and we'd all compare how quick we completed the puzzles on each day -- with this one guy (no longer with us) who zipped through Monday through Sunday like butter .... smart guy!!
Actually I prefer the "Variety" type of puzzle magazines and usually have about 4 magazines working (or more) at one time - as I refuse to cheat and look up the answer and so when I get bored I look through my older "books" and lo and behold - I have one of the answers ....
When they become rather "ragtag" etc, well, then I retire them. Oh yeah - and I use pen in them, no pencil.
I actually use them as an almost "brain stimulant" cause I believe it's a thinking tool, as well as a fun outlet.
