So, um, did anyone actually try to solve my crossword puzzle thingy? It is actually solvable, y'know.

Yeah, I did. Got most o' them too! (at least most o' them fit, I dunno if they're right!)

However, for several, I had to pull out my English-KT dictionary

It was a lot of fun! Great job!

(Or, translated: "It wass a lotto funno. Yig-ped!")

I tried but sadly, didn't have enough time to succeed. I've been goofing off during my Christmas / New Years vacation and decided today would be the day I'd get everything done that I'd been postponing.

Argh, gave it another try and got about half the words, but I think I got a word or two wrong, which makes it very tough because some of the answers aren't real words and getting those right when you're not sure of the intersecting words isn't easy.

Ahhh, I was worse than I thought, I spelled it UNOOKLAHOMA which made it impossible to get SALTISMAD, which messed up the right side. I put in EXULT instead of EXMITT, which messed up a lot of thingies going across. I missed YOUSLEO and ABUTK too. Hmm, maybe if I hadn't forgotten some of your characters' names I would have done better. Great job filling in the grid with actually guessable answers.

I got about 6 or 7 of the simpler ones (like "the"), but didn't manage to keep my brain on the task for long after that. Although real-life problems can keep me happily occupied for days, weeks or years, artificial puzzles just don't hold my attention, somehow.

I finished it. Was quite fun, too - making me wonder about making my own crossword now.

I printed it out last night and got about half of it figured out before I went to bed.

i've been doing crosswords for so long, that i will sometimes solve them in my head. i'll stare at the diagram and clues and work it out without actually filling in the squares with a pen (yeah, i use a pen). thats what i did with your puzzle. i liked the way you worked your own name into the center of the grid. hey, why not? its your puzzle!
