Some nice nines, but I may have been late on Rounds 3 and 5.

1. IDOLATERS/ESTRADIOL
2. WOOFED
3. 923 = (9+8)*50 + 75 - 6/3. If late, had 922 = (75+50-9)*8-6
4. DISENTOMB. Nearly pulled out of that.
5. ALRIGHT. If late, started with ALIGHT.
6. 394 = 2*(100*50-75)/25
7. SCANNED
8. 385 = 7*50 + 25 + 10
9. DYSENTERY - 1.6s. Surprisingly quick, as I got distracted during the countdown.
