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 BOND JAMES BOND even though normally you couldn't repeat a word in a puzzle. HOMESWEETHOME was a natural and TIME AFTER TIME fit perfectly. I wanted TIME AFTER TIME clued as a Cyndi Lauper song, again to get in something contemporary and women-oriented, but the clue was changed.
