Written records of daily events of a homosexual king of Persia?

Okey dokey, let's break it down.  You guessed Diaries = written records of daily events.  Close but not quite, can you come up with another word?

The homosexual king of Persia is a two syllable clue.  You've got the first syllable: homosexual = gay, you need to find out the second one, king of Persia (Google perhaps?)

Afraid not.  Not diaries, not chronicles, beginning with M.

And Gay is right for the first syllable of the second part of the clue so you're looking for the second syllable gay___

I think I'll use the film I just watched for my clue:

The agency-provided time in Connecticut?
Title: Cryptic films thread
Post by: Kat73 on November 23, 2015, 02:38:27 pm
Think I'd better give another hint for this one!

It's a two word answer, Helen Mirren stars in it, and you need to think of another word for agency or bank staff.

Post by: Kat73 on November 28, 2015, 02:15:41 pm
Ok, let's break it down a bit more.

Clue: The agency-provided time in Connecticut?

Answer is a two word film starring Helen Mirren.  What do we call a worker who is brought in to work for a specific time period, perhaps to cover maternity leave or someone's holiday?  And what time zone is Connecticut in?
