    Default A Beguiling Collection

    I’ve got a couple of more puzzles in the works. I was trying to think of a good way to share the kinds of things I saw while helping with the Great American Race. So I’m attempting to come up with puzzles that use the same techniques but presented in a different manner.

    "Get Your Kicks" was the first. Be warned more are coming.

    Some people are lost in the shuffle. I'm shuffling along with the lost.

    Default It IS Caturday, after all!

    We have a little black cat, rescued from the rains of Hurricane Bertha over 11 years ago. Spouse took one look at him and declared, "He’s going to be a pain in the butt." Thus the cat was christened Pitby (PITB). Pitby didn’t think I should be sitting at the computer working on moscow’s puzzle. I should be paying attention to HIM, HIM, HIM. So he sat in front of the monitor on the mouse and rubbed his face and paws on the keyboard.

    Anyway, corgi wanted a quick puzzle. Hope this is it.

    PM me with the answer I seek.

    There were two things I thought of to try first off, but neither process resulted in anything obvious.



    I'll need to think more about A B C.

    Any significance in the repetition HIM, HIM, HIM?

    The letters on the computer screen match the letters at the ends of lines on sslug's puzzle.

    HIM, HIM, HIM is only because the cat feels that as a god all attention should be paid to HIM. The cat is the only important being in the world (according to HIM); the people in the house are just his servants who must be ready to spring into action to meet HIS needs (real or perceived). And since he has been an only cat for two months now, he has gotten needier. Everything is about HIM.


    (If you know any cats you understand...)

    (Adult cats are supposed to have the IQ of a toddler; maybe that explains the ME, ME, ME attitude.)



    "A Beguiling Collection" was picked because I wanted something that would float to the top of the list when its sorted alphabetically. No matter how I try to set up my Tweleve anything in subforums sorts alphabetically, so I've just given up and use "Last Post if I really need to find something. But "Last Post" means I need to wait for the page to reload. So "a beguiling" comes before "a bewildering" and that's what I selected (and hopefully most puzzles are beguiling).
