This is my first contribution so please let me know if it will work.
Thank you, Blaine, and sorry for my delayed response. Somehow, I overlooked your submissions until today. I have entered them into the MW and marked them ready for PL. Helen, our DPL (dedicated proof listener) will listen to them both and let you know if any changes need to be made. I'll need you to also post the duration of each of them in minutes and seconds. (MM:SS) Thank you!

On second thought, "dashed" would also be an appropriate euphemism. But I think "damned" is what was intended.

Thanks, Helen. Did you figure out how to edit the MW after all? Or is it Darvinia I need to thank for that? Either way, thank you to all!
