One crossword failure and one crossword success

I try to get the mini crossword from the New York Times done in less than 2 minutes, and the Dictionary.com full size crossword done in the stretch goal of less than 30 minutes, which I hadn't been able to do yet. Today's results?

Almost 5 minutes! I just couldn't think of Idaho. Listed every western state in my head except for that one, which, when I listed the western states the third time around, I finally got Idaho. After that, I was able to get 1 down and 3 down, but the across clues didn't help me much, surprisingly.

However, the Dictionary version was much better.



I was really pleased to see that I got it completed well under my 30 minute goal! I also went for a 2 mile walk/run and then found my copy of Twinkie, Deconstructed which I'll be reading a chapter a day for the next couple of weeks.
