Jet lag’s a disruption in these rhythms of the body from Latin words for “about the day”.

In The Rime of the Ancient Mariner the mariner shot this bird w/ his crossbow.

A 2018 fed report said not counting mortgages the biggest source of U.S. debt was this incurred by young people.

In 1932 a 3-seat Stinson was the entire fleet flying between Bristol Bay & Anchorage for what would be this airline.

“What is Alaskan Airlines?”…NOT ACCEPTABLE– it was just Alaska Airlines. And we hope Ryan can Find a Synonym at the 1200 place because that’s where DD #2 sits; he & Shriya lead w/ 8K, an 800 margin over Eesha. He’ll bet 2K this rd. too.

This synonym for a news reporter & a person who keeps a diary comes to us partly from the French.

1600 in Shakespeare’s Contemporaries is DD #1 for Lucas (8400); he’s doubled up 3rd-placer Justin & Hannah’s in 2nd w/ six grand. Lucas sticks w/ the 1600.

A Christopher Marlow guy made a deal he COULDN’T back out of as he was written in blood “Faustus gives to thee…” this.

“What is his life?”…nope- only one word was needed & it was soul. Al Gebra is hiding DD #2 & Justin (6600) centers out to claim that & makes it a Trubie; Lucas’ still in the leader’s position at 14,400 & Hannah has a 3600 deficit to Lucas.

Al knows that this word for the three in 8³ can also mean a person who advocates an idea.

“What is a root?” will wipe Justin out- it’s really an exponent.

At almost 10 miles Samaria Gorge on this largest Greek island’s the longest gorge in Europe.

“What is Crete?”…she moves into R-U positioning. DD #2’s hidden in Only Half Showed Up & Shriya (15,600) captures it right away by jumping to its 1200 spot; we have a good preliminary here to end this wk. as Hannah’s in 2nd at 13,800 & Avi’s in last but w/ 13,400. Shriya wagers two grand like the prev. time.

We planned on fourscore guests but only half showed up so now this many have to eat all the food.
