"Comic Title Characters" + "Two Names" = only Calvin & Hobbes came to mind for me. So, instaget.
Good point. What other comic strips even meet that criterion? Hi & Lois?
Mutt and Jeff
Arlo and Janis

At the risk of going off topic, I'll stop now. (Also, that's all I could think of.)

The word Bond was the answer to a clue twice today. I wonder how often there is an answer that is used twice in the same episode in two different categories. Here are some instances I found where the same correct response (or a variation thereof) was used twice in one episode in different categorie...

I filled in 2/19/02: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1435 All of the links should work. Ouch on Paul's end game. I think it's down to about 30 games from S18 left to fill in. Tiny steps. My current game is the last incomplete game of that season, so we'll meet in the middle eventually...

No chance of getting other recently posted early game (October 30, 1991) finished tonight, but I might be able to get it started. We'll see. I did get it started that night. And today I got it finished. Jonathan Loeb vs. Eileen Doherty vs. Greg Shepherd (who looks like Allen Ludden from a distance)...

Thanks. I figured it was something like that based on your sentence. (I'd have gotten it without the extra clue #hb)

No one blessed you with this at Christmas, huh? Sad.

I've been lurking on the LL site for years now, mock-playing 1DSs and Match Days and occasionally reading the message boards.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

As of right now I haven't played any of this weekend's 1DS's, and I just unsubscribed to 2 of the ML's and may drop out of a 3rd. I've been doing the Completist Cup for 3 years now, but since it's no longer official, it's no longer fun, I'll confess. So, I'm pulling off the Band-Aid. Gonna just play...

In late 2018 news (didn't feel like bumping the old thread), Burundi has moved its political capital city from the easily-remembered Bujumbura to the less-stickily-named Gitega. Bujumbura remains the economic capital. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-12-24/burundi-moves-political-capital...

And Happy New Year, everyone. I've got a couple of weeks off to start the new year, so I'm hoping to get a few games knocked off the old checklist, or as least get some organizing of my tapes and workspace going.
