    This was so good! Not sure if it was intentional or not but I liked how CONTINENTS22AAntarctica and others[----------] called back to last month's contest, too.

            Fun puzzle! Not at all related to the theme, but something about SQUAREPEG8APoor match for a round hole[---------] was just really satisfying. And I always enjoy a good pair of repetitive clues, so 8A8APoor match for a round hole[---------] and 15A15ANew Kids on the Block, for example[----] were very clever.

              thanks! i really liked square peg too... first version of the puzzle had "courtesan" in that spot... then "square rod" but i deemed them too obscure/kinda boring... a shame that LEWES7DEarliest settlement in Delaware with the nickname "The First Town in The First State"[-----] is pretty obscure too but hopefully not a natick in that spot... i planted the LOAN/LIEN12AMortgage, for example[----] trap with "mortgage" just to be extra evil 😈
