Phew! - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

Phew!
I just made a word search puzzle at work. That is annoying and irritating work, but finding eighty words buried in 2,025 letters could prove potentially entertaining for awhile.

Of course, I'm glad I made an answer key, because staring at the finished project, I'm only seeing a handful of them, and I put them there!

You can get a hold of programs that will generate those for you... some of them free, if I'm not mistaken (I'd check google). You give them the words and the size, they give you the puzzle (and the answer key).

Yeah... but then I wouldn't have this lovely sense of accomplishment!

well that's true enough.

I'm a wordsearch geek, I admit. 19 years old, and I still dig into the minipages for wordsearches. I need to get me one of those puzzle books.

My great-grandmother used to have those lying around her house in bulk, and I used to steal three or four at a time and fill them all out.

They're so much fun!!

aren't they? I'm dubious about claims that they make people smarter, but they're certainly a way to kill an afternoon.

Is it for Xtreme Teen? I've got a bunch of kids signed up and I'm looking for things to keep them excited.

Yeah--I'll send it to you if you want. It's mostly to be part of the party on July 16. ;)

*blinks* July 16th... *bangs head on desk* oh, yeah. That party. Sure send it along. I've got a lot of HP fans. Did you notice that the requests for HBP now exceed the number of copies we've ordered? We *did* warn them....
