Guesses for 53 down - so far *in this thread*:

lost
abed
busy
beat
agog
idle
home
gone
worn
ired
work
numb
sots

Unless someone has guessed correctly and we don't know about it - all of those answers are wrong. Good luck to anyone who still has an open guess to use.

Not at all. They were saying that all of the questions people were asking here could be answered by reading the original blog post with the rules.

2:45. I give up for the night, set the alarm for 6 hours later, go to bed.

3:15. The power goes out.

3:20 The battery backup on my apartment smoke detector runs out of juice. The detector decides to inform me of this. Incessantly.

Roughly every hour until 8:30. I wake up bleary-eyed.

9:00 I check my e-mail in a Starbucks on the way in, finding out that my fast fingered flan flew in first (or second) last night.

Hurray for a nice ending to a crappy night.

Also note the original clue was posted around 5-6am CST, so you may want to take that into consideration since it references "Now".

I tried "WORK" a little while ago but nothing. The only thing I can think of now is "FREE" or "POOR"

So, let me get this straight... to ease strain on their servers, they play little games with the bee oh see purchase... games like crapword.

Which gives clues on the main page for a chance at one of two available bags.

Inspiring people to get frantic on F5 at every item turnover.

Must be effective.

It has been eons since my last bag of cheer. :-(

Also I think they will only accept your first email.

I just sent off DONE about 15 minutes ago.

You are not alone in that feeling. I put "day" for this answer, thinking I was clever. I'm not certain I'm wrong, and dumb.

I think you're only allowed to make one guess per clue.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! :D

I'm awake now and looks like I missed a lot.

I've been sleeping for EONS and I bet it would take EONS for me to actually get a bag again at this rate.

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)
O-M-G! That Squirrel stole my Bag of Crap!

And I just noticed that 14-across was in fact ESPN. How does that work?

That's correct, but I think that list was a collection of various people's guesses, not a huge list of one person's attempts.

4-down: "TN_M" will likely be some sort of acronym or abbreviation, like ESPN was.

YAY!! I got one!

Congratulations! You spent wayyyyyy too much of your day on this stupid crossword puzzle, and are being handsomely rewarded with the opportunity to purchase a bag of useless crap.

DO NOT SHARE THIS URL WITH ANYONE BEFORE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR TRANSACTION. There is only one BOC at the end of this rainbow, and if you give it to somebody else we can't help you.

Thanks for playing, and make sure to rub your victory in your fellow players' faces. That's sportsmanship.

At cross purposes,
