Hey everyone. So, like, welcome to my summer vacation. You might be wondering why I'm spending it in the pages of mathNEWS. To tell the truth, so am I. But I've never gotten to be the GridGuy before, so here I am.
So you might think that coming up with one of these crossword thingies is difficult. Not so much. All you really have to do is sit in the middle of a busy hallway with your pencil and paper, and individuals seeking amusement will flock around you, brimming with helpful suggestions. Hence, while I may be GridMaster for this term, today's gridWORD would be impossible without the able help of WhoopAss, Anarchy, the Yakk, Princess, and of course, my Lovely Assistant.
So I hope that y'all have fun with it. Because of that whole long weekend, submissions for this gridWORD are due on Monday, May 31st at 6:30 in the BLACK BOX, or alternatively you can e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just drop them off in our mailbox in the MathSoc office. So many alternatives!
Anyhow, enjoy the fruits of our collective labour. Be seeing you,
Matt "So-Krates" Walsh
PS. An old tradition that seems to have lapsed over the terms is that of the GridQuestion, to which you all submit solutions. In an ideal world, if there's a tie for most correct grid solution, then the prize goes to the person with the wittiest answer to the Question. So this week's GridQuestion is, What's the best part about Spring terms?
