Apologies if this has already been discussed but I was just told I'd already taken the "new" WP at 8:45 pm. I still had not gotten the results for the last one in my mailbox. I believe this has might be the clincher because it seems that in the past when I've gotten this message, the last results had not 'registered' with the system yet. So alas, I'm out another WP! Hope it was a good one!

I don't think you are "out". This has happened to me before and I am always able to take it if I go back repeatedly. Although anyone that somehow doesn't get it hasn't missed much.

I really enjoyed the (cooking) puzzle tonight...which seems to be one of the harder ones recently.
I love puzzles where you have no choice but to use your intelligence...alas, my score reflects that!

That's the good thing about WP's. I am always willing to voice my displeasure at ones that "annoy" me but I can also praise the ones that I enjoy. This mornings "March in and out" was a winner and I used no Googling or World Almanacs to do it. I don't always finish high in the ones I like or low in the ones I don't. I just try to finish the month in the top 50 which I have never done. Probably one of the reasons being that I don't even attempt puzzles like Danielle Steel, or Shakespeare etc.
Different strokes,

Different strokes, indeed. To me, a well-constructed puzzle, even on an alien topic, is a pleasure to take. Take the Danielle Steel puzzle (please!) I know absolutely nothing about her works, never read her, ... and yet, the puzzles were written in such a way that a person with next to zero knowledge of the topic could still challenge him- or herself to work out the puzzles in as few moves as possible, without feeling like it was just a matter of guessing a letter and hoping. It was a lot of fun for me. Did I finish high on that puzzle? Heck no! But the experience was still more enjoyable to me than some of the puzzles in which I had more knowledge of the subject matter.

I find puzzles like Danielle Steel and a few other subjects to be like the sky in one of those 1000-2000 pieces jigsaw puzzles...the hardest part, the part where I am wondering clueless, try to piece it together. But on the other hand, when I finally finish it, bloodied yet standing, I feel the greater sense of accomplishment than the low score I sometimes manage in a few other categories. And considering the number of Jackpot points necessary to win anything, that feeling is my best reward.
