Sometimes a cigar is just a smoke.

I s'pose that's what I get for trying to make everything have a double meaning. In this case I meant exactly what I said - it arranged into ULTIMATELY but I thought you might have found something else besides.

But getting back to speaking in riddles - we move from my ULTIMATELY to your FINALITY.
I'm right on your TRAIL, MEN.

That could be the TERMINAL to a TRAMLINE. A tram, if you've not come across one before, is what you'd call a trolley car in the US.

I'm writing an SF novel about travelling to an ANTIPROTON STAR.

I like ANTIPROTON STAR! If there were an anti-wormhole in the center, that might provide an unexpected means of interstellar TRANSPORTATION !

Until we find that we'll just have to be content with what's available. All this rush to get from here to there in a hurry is arousing SNAIL IRE.

If the AIRLINES were subject to an AILERON TAX we'd be able to sit back in our seats and rest.

Excuse my long absence. Must have been the emetic pears I washed down with some nifty ail last week...

I've heard the students at SOUR MUPPETS U are not at all PRESUMPTUOUS. The school was built near the TIDE TUNNEL to serve these folks....

Opportunity missed - your clue would be met by NOISOME, but the closest I can get to it is NOISESOME. Not the same thing.

I'll keep working on it.

(Edit: Or maybe it is the same thing, although my searches mostly suggest it's an alternative (mis)spelling of NOISOME.)

That's a polite way of saying 'You idiot, you can't spell", isn't it? Red Face

It was intended to be NOISOME but I can't spell it! Try this instead: Maybe his RAVAGED TIE has several colours.

No, no, au contraire, mon chou. You must know the regard in which we hold you. When you're not looking we think of you as a sort of Archibald Grosvenor, as in "Archibald the All-right." (Never mind the poetry...) Wink So I must be the one mistaken, and "noisesome" can't be the rearrangement you had in mind.

EUCALYPTUS is distinctive. Other aromas are also enticing if taken in a NON-MANIC way (often with baked goods).

I guess I'm not up on my essential oils. All I can make of that is WOOD'N SALAD. Or maybe (with a little imagination) a harpsichordist or two - WANDA LANDOWSKA

Oh, pooh. SANDALWOOD !


If I've spelled it right, take a voyage on the S.S. AS FAR AS.

Now you see it...and now it's DISAPPEARED.

And speaking of appearing, I was disappointed by that new Chinese restaurant. The RICE DOME is only so-so. (And stepping back a bit - where did it YET GLOOMY come from?)

The ETYMOLOGY of the RICE DOME is probably quite MEDIOCRE.

That's pretty ORDINARY.

Which might give rise to FICTION'S STADIAS.

I think two weeks is long enough to declare No Vote.

Just as long as no one becomes a MALCONTENT.

I declare a SENTOP MENTOP, duration to be determined.

What a felicitous couple of words! It sounds like the beginning of one of those nonsense rhymes:

Sentop, mentop,
My son Cop
Pentop, moptop
Away he'd hop.

POSTPONEMENT is an anticlimax, not the last for the NUTMEAT PILE.

HETERODYNE, but that was obviously a typo. A TRANSISTOR is a good example of CLIENT SCORE.

Oops. Typo, or dyslexia. Or inattention. I'm going from bad to worse, here. Better quit while I'm still ahead.

I'm a cardiologist; do you think I'd be able to hear any of these ELECTRONICS devices without my A.C.C. HOLE?
