Amusingly messed up today’s by not knowing 2D, 6A or 9A… But I put AMORE down for 3D and never questioned it.

Despite thinking XES was pure shit I took a punt on the correct answer for 2D and when it said I was still wrong just revealed and saw my 3D mistake was the cause.

Got 1A wrong so was fucked from the off.
