**Hello! You’ve found one of my cryptics from before I figured out how to make cryptics well! Please enjoy the diamonds in the rough, but expect neither elegance nor fairness. It takes a while to learn how to do it right!**
Hello, cryptic solvers!
It’s time for this month’s blocked puzzle. This one is fairly challenging and lightly themed. I hope it’s just right for you. Thanks to k0rmad for the test solve!
I’ll see you next week with a super fun guest crossword and your monthly themeless offering. Take care and enjoy!
