The Letter Exchange II

Question

I should be sleeping, but I am a demon cat of my word...so...

Building on the dessert is a decadent triple chocolate mouse (i.e. N=3 and the first word of group 3 has exactly 3 letters different than the last word of group 2). Afterwards, we mix a round of cocktails to round out the night (i.e. N=1 again but with anagramming, and the first word is 1 different than the last of group 3, with anagramming).

Enjoy. ;)

Group 3:

What must be done to the ignorant,

This is not the puzzle you are looking for,

Semi-solid,

570-590 nm,

A bird,

Modern age Flash,

Anti-Axis,

Deflected your epee,

Outcast,

Less tasty but often confused with this course,

Definitely not a happy camper.

Group 4:

In the details,

Do this when you come to a roundabout,

Don't you hate when they do this to your flight?

Striation,

R,

Home of evil,

Good for singing,

A bird is flying between two of these at 30km/hr,

Hopefully you'll give this a good ______ ;),

Or else you're being one of these :P,

And finally, b/c I [less than three] calculus ;P.

Nice start. 3/4. And why not, it's clear you're no light weight ;).

Well done! The singing one may be more of a pop-culture thing here in the US...and it's not 'trail', others are spot on ;).

Again well done, the second to last was designed to be tricky. It may take more than one logical step. Also for the "Partition"...

I like verbs. Even when words are not suppose to be verbs...*cough*....(but this one is definitely a real word)

Less tasty but often confused with this course... Caviar?

Nope, more wordplay, less practicality please ;).

I'm not a desert - Parfait

Unhappy camper - Park bait (about to get eaten by a bear :o (spaces are people too...))

I'm just... Singin' in the Rain

Right wordplay, wrong word ;P

Um...lol? (Although, in seriousness, it might be easier to work backwards from the first word of group 4... ;) )

:thumbsup:

Okay, fine. Hint-dropping time...

'partition' - verb, 6 letters

'less tasty but often confused with this course' - adjective, 4 letters

'definitely not a happy camper' - adjective, 5 letters
