Greetings random mid-week visitors. Well I’ve been reading about how much fun these sloggers and betters get-togethers have been, and an email from Eric Westbrook started gears turning in my tiny mush-addled head. This 3D crosswords cup is at a perfect time for me, a bit of a lull in the performing schedule, during a few week break before my regular job starts back up. I also have friends in Leeds and London that I have been promising a visit to in years (my last trip to the UK was in 2004).
So I’m booked and ready – I’m coming to the big schmozzle on August 6th. I hope you can wear shorts.
If you want to join me, then there’s plenty more details at the Calendar Puzzles page, including a handy-dandy option to pay via paypal.
Suggestions as to what to do, where to drink, and any fun open mic nights welcome.

Welcome back to George versus the listener. All good things must come to an end, and having only improved marginally in the last three years, and facing the wrath and derision of those on the message board, it is time to pack it in and call it quits.
April fool – actually I’m stuck in LA another day and won’t be back until very late tomorrow night, so I’ll have a post on Ringtone, which I rather liked, on Saturday.

So would you believe that a 10-minute write up of a crossword puzzle that doesn’t exist, based on a challenge in a thread on the Crossword Center brought this blog twice as much traffic as it has ever seen on a single day?
Tempting though it is to write more reviews of non-existent puzzles, it seems that there are some crossword fans hurting for entertainment out there, so I set on a little relaunch. I’ve put in more widgets, some links (if I’ve forgotten you, please let me know), added my picture of the empty grid from Elap as an icon and in 2011, George vs the Listener will be your destination for crossword entertainment. I’ll be posting some puzzles, separating my entries for writing awful clues for the Azed competitions (and other clue-writing competitions) and bringing other bitties and pieces to the table, as well as sticking to the core mission of bettering my record on the Listener crossword.
So welcome to 2011, and I hope you enjoy the ride.
