I generally feel pretty “meh” about tourist attractions, unless the tourist attraction in question is an upside-down house that gives you a chance to live like a cartoon character.

This past Saturday, Bernice Gordon turned 100 years old, and to celebrate, she did what she does every day: she created a crossword puzzle. Gordon has been writing crosswords for nearly six decades, with her grids appearing regularly in The New York Times and other newspapers, magazines, and books since the 1950s.

Gordon doesn’t plan to retire from wordplay anytime soon. “[Crosswords] make my life,” she told the Portland Press Herald. “I couldn’t live without them.” [Huffington Post]
