2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 6, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Sep 02, 2013 2:47 pm

If I were a certain sort of person, I would tell you that vague, misleading, and poorly-pinned clues and funky post times were part of a larger meta-puzzle, and express vague disappointment that nobody had given any indication yet that they were "on to me."

I'll leave it to your judgment of my character to determine whether I am, in fact, that sort of person.

Anyway, on we go.
