I thought it was kind of hard. I didn't get the purple, and only randomly guessed on the blue -- much like you did, Sonja! I thought of "Swan Lake" and "Little Drummer Boy" and threw LADY in there because I figured, why not, it sounds kind of like that other stuff.

However, I am all too familiar with "The 12 Days of Christmas," which, Sonja, if you haven't heard it is an extremely tedious song in which, with every verse, you have to repeat everything you've sung in previous verses. It's about as exciting as "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."

Yes, it was deceptively simple today. I've gotten into thehabit of asking myself "how are they trying to trick me?" before I hit the Submit button.

I got the purple and yellow simultaneously but did the purple first for the glory.


Yes, it was deceptively simple today. I've gotten into the habit of asking myself "how are they trying to trick me?" before I hit the Submit button.

Maybe they're just trying to trick Sonja! I think old slang and HEAD (which of course is old slang as well as froth) might be difficult for non-Americans.

I do the same thing. For example, I assembled the old slang right away but saw five possibilities. In that situation, I figure out which seems least likely to have other meanings, in this case NEATO and NIFTY, then look for matches of the remaining words in other groups.
