the way I do it has a bit more structure to it For your example I would use
TesS JaiL DIana ABby RaP XRay X
I switch out some tricky ones so X is SH for me. So:
ToSs Jel DIe AB RiP SHaRe Xmen
Single letters are superheroes to help me remember parity. Recently I've been switching BU with LU in edge memo so I don't need a parity alg so I don't really need my heroes unless those pieces are already solved.

Several fails
1. 4bld dnf 1. Somehow managed to completely screw up 13 centers :l also didn't memo the last cycle of wings
2. 4bld dnf 2. Even worse than 4bld dnf 1. Basically stared at a cube for a while then mixed it up with a blindfold on.
3. mbld dnf 1/4. Didn't memo 1 edge letter pair on a cube, on another didn't fix twisted corners and last forgot last corner letter pair :p
4. mbld dnf 1/5. Basically the same as mbld dnf 1/4 except 1 cube is only halfway solved :p

Some really sad stuff happened at 6.25 this weekend....

DNFed a would-be overall 4bld PB, 3:23 by a separate two wing cycle. Would have been 20WR and 4NAR :(

Also DNFed an 8:52 5bld single by 2 +centers. At least I got a success after that so I'm not as sad about this

Also completely blew it on all of my multibld attempts, which is the event I care most about ughhhhh. 19/29, 18/29, then 22/29. I really don't get what happened here. My accuracy is never, literally never close to being this bad at home. I'm not sure I've actually ever DNFed these percentages of cubes before since I got into multibld (maybe the 7/29 percentage, but definitely not 10/29 or 11/29)
29 cubes feels relaxed since I've been trying 33 for a while (with a few sub-hour attempts on 33), so I really dont get what the problem here was. I'm gonna spend the next couple of weeks trying to figure this out.

Blind drives me insane. Didn't get to try a solve until late evening but got PB2 first go (8/12 and I even used a few comms). 2nd solve took more than double the time followed by so many DNFs that I'm going to bed early.
