Well, it’s officially the very last day of November, 2022. December is but a stone’s throw into the future. In some parts of the world, it’s already here.
December is always a time of reflection. We look back on the year spread out behind us and try to remember the good and the bad. What were our favorite movies? Our favorite books? What did we do right and what did we do wrong? How will we make next year better? I’ll have lots of posts up here on this blog about my favorite games and shows and so forth so please do follow if you’d like.
Today is also the release date of a show that I’ve been very excited about: Willow. It’s the sequel series to the old 1988 movie and sees the return of Willow Ufgood. Warwick Davis reprises his role as the Nelwin sorcerer. He was only 18 when he played the character back in original film! We’ll see if it’s a faithful return to the world George Lucas created and Ron Howard directed, or if it falls into the many traps so many modern shows fall into.
Alright, let’s do this Wordle! The last Wordle of the month!
Today’s Wordle Solution (with spoilers)
The Hint: This will help enormously with your education.
The Clue: There are more consonants than vowels in this word.
This is one of those instances that proves that in life, bad luck can turn to good at any moment (though, of course, the reverse is also true).
My opening guess, claim, seemed like it would be a pretty good one, with two vowels and some very common letters. Alas, it left me with a truly whopping number of possible solutions at 654 (the worst I’ve had in weeks).
With nary a yellow box, nor green, I guessed another pretty great word—grope—with two fresh vowels and three more pretty common consonants. I could not grope my way to a yellow or green box, however, and left guess #2 with all greys and 32 possible words to choose from.
And here is where my luck turned. I wanted to go for a word that included both a ‘U’ and a ‘Y’ (I felt ‘Q’ was likely not an option with no other vowels left since QU almost always has another vowel directly after). Study included two very common consonants and seemed like a pretty good guess to get me closer. Imagine my surprise when every box turned over green!
I should have opened with study! That would have been some real good luck. Either way, I beat Wordle Bot today. He guessed slate / pinot / cadre / study and walks away with a red ribbon and a great big L.
I get the W on this one and will end this with a yawping huzzah!
Peace and love, dearest Wordlers. Be excellent to each other.
