(Perhaps the most overused word in the English language!  Usually, people like this are actually pretty insecure.  It’s a positive self-reinforcement kind of thing, to constantly toot your own horn.  This made for a good pun though.

We have another brand new clue word today, in “spoken”.  Our friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database.  All of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  I had a little trouble coming up with “italic”, but I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic ten letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Fine coffee shop cartoon.  Today’s Family Circus reminded me a little of some of our favorite seaside Jumbles.  There’s a sailboat on the horizon.  But, it’s not sinking.  Good, fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I used to fluctuate between 215 – 225 lbs, Ken. But, now I’m down in the 192/193 area, and appear to have leveled off. At 5’11” I could stand to drop another 10, but I think I’d look pretty gaunt at that weight. I also drink the apple cider vinegar mixture before all meals. — YUR

    D&J got back on track with a much better puzzle and cartoon today. Angry Jumble villagers snuffed out torches and lay down pitchforks.

    It’s not clear whether the two cartoon subjects are friends or something more. But it raised an interesting question: can two narcissists ever really fall in love?

    In fact Psychology Today ran an article with just that title: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201709/can-two-narcissists-ever-really-fall-in-love

    One interpretation of the article and research cited: two people who share the same primary dimensions of narcissism (such as insecurity) can’t meet each others’ needs, and a bond is unlikely to form. However two people with contrasting primary dimensions of narcissism, particularly a manipulative narcissist and an antisocial narcissist, can form romantic relationships, though their road will be bumpy with lots of fireworks in the sky. (To illustrate the point with characters many readers know, consider the fictionalized Bonnie and Clyde from the 1967 film.) Part of the reason these folks sometimes find each other and stay together is no one else will put up with their baloney.

    Analyze on, all.
