TOOLSHEDS I think is the first TTT in a long time to not be an ascension conundrum.

Is PUNNIER valid? DC suggested it in the PUNIER/PINNER round but Lexplorer says no, which leads me to suspect it's specified only in the premium version of the ODO. For now, I've included it in the wiki recap.
There are three erors in this semtence.

Can we just rejoice in the fact that for the first time in my lifetime someone tried to pick 6 vowels?
This is a significant moment in my lifetime, I feel very emotional.

When Ravi tried to pick a 6th vowel, I did think "Now this is Elliott's type of player"...
