“Lemon” is such a cute name, but “Vex?” I guess it was that or “Hex” (bad) “Tex” (inapt) or “Lex” (Luthor, also bad).
Thanks for the immortality.
Eighty years ago, perhaps “Pex” would have been in contention (as in Peck’s Bad Boy).
Could’ve gone with “Dex,” short for Dexter, the serial killer from that cable series…
I like the added value of “Lemon”—an acerbic citrus fruit, yes, but also what Tracy Morgan’s character calls Tina Fey’s character on 30 Rock, for added acerbity. And hooray for being immortalized in a webcomic! I hadn’t even considered that front in my campaign to conquer all forms of media. ;-)
Hmm… I suppose we’re best not thinking along the lines of “lemon” as it’s used in the car industry. :-)
*gasp* Oh, no, you di’n't!
LOL. Glad “Lemon” led me here. But Patrick, you should play nice on your own blog.
I thought Liz Lemon too.
I’m thinking “Vex” is the blogger Rex Parker (http://rexwordpuzzle.blogspot.com/) and “Lemon” is “Orange” who often post’s on Parker’s blog…
Although Orange writes her own crossword blog, which actually predates Rex’s. You can go to it by clicking on the “Orange” in Orange’s comment three above yours.
WE LOVE REX PARKER!!! COME VISIT!
First, don’t your crossword puzzles get a bit wet while sculling on Lake Quinsigamond?
Second, thanks for the invite to Rex’s, but I’m already sorta there. I’ve had about 65 crosswords in the NYT in recent years (although very few in the past year), so I’m more like a supplier of the fodder for Rex to praise or raze.
Hey, and next regatta against Amherst, go easy on the Lord Jeffs. My brother was on their crew team many moons ago.
