Circle of Tanga

Tonight's Tanga puzzle, with the ring of yellow and pink circles, reminds me of the circle puzzles that sometimes show up as the second puzzle on Sunday in the New York Times.

I got the overall answer to the puzzle before I got all the sub-answers. Then it took me a while longer to figure out one of the sub-answers, because I had done something else wrong.

Clue in the comments.

This is a hard one to clue without giving it away entirely....

If you can get any two consecutive answers in the 6 clues, look at those two words side by side.

... Of course, I meant to say 7 clues, not 6.

I couldn't figure out who the heck Bob and Mary are, but with a little good guessing I got the right answer.

Oh yeah and my husband helped me with the odorous whitener.

For the Bob and Mary one, think of Shakespeare's question about the rose's smell.

I agree Nancy - the occasional circle puzzles in the Times made this format familiar. I'm assuming you solve at night when the puzzles are first posted. How do you stack up time wise? i do them in the morning because I'm usually asleep by ten. Have you done anything with your points? Do they count towards purchasing the items offered?
Oh, I've been meaning to ask you - have you ever gone to the tournament in Stamford?

I try to do them at night, usually as close to 10 as possible. No reason really, only that I like the puzzles and so don't care to wait. I do okay on time. Generally right around the average, or is it the median?

I haven't gone to the Stamford tournament. You?

By the way, the points will count for something later, according to the Tanga blog. I don't think they've figured it out yet.
