Puzzles

Is anyone else playing the Sudoku puzzle in the times? I am all about it. It's a kind of logic puzzle with numbers. It's relatively easy (about 20 minutes) and lots of fun.

The spelling words on the Mirriam Webster site today were:
palazzo
quiescence
adroit
lieutenant
siesta
zealotry
recourse
machismo (such a turn-off)
and facsimile.

Does anyone else still pronounce "lieutenant" as "leff-tenant" or am I just being pretentious?
