This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15, Words: 78, Blocks: 42 Missing: {GQYZ} This is puzzle # 5 for Ms. Michaels. NYT links: Across Lite

Andrea Carla Michaels notes: Back to simple three 13s. I thought it was fun to say BONDJAMESBOND even tho normally you couldn't repeat a word in a puzzle. HOMESWEETHOME was a natural and TIMEAFTERTIME fit perfectly. I wanted TIMEAFTERTIME clued as a Cyndi Lauper song, again to get in something contemporary and women-oriented, but the clue was changed.
