On the beach; in a word, I’m home free. Here’s a lim’rick to say “Guinness me.” To be safe, I’ve agreed not to use a linefeed, lest I’m charged with the dread “P.O.E.”

Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

Ashore! I have a cool math-related cheer I’ll add come Monday AM. In the meantime, Zombie Dust me!
