R1 was dumb. Shoulda picked a final consonant.
R7 I wanted an E for WAYSIDE :)
R13 I wanted an A for FOLIATES :( Foiliest was dumb.

If we're talking about maxing your score though, picking 4L the whole time is pretty dumb.

Glad to see they aren't using ludicrously hard FIBREFILLesque conundrums for the finals, instead using ones that you might actually have a chance of get...
