...because (unless we have different answers) the rake is spelled ?ou? not ?uo?

i think the words "it's all about" in the clue are intended to mean the word for rake are not in any correct order

Hmm - I think the "all about" is to indicate "guy" inside "rake"(?ou?) - and reverse the whole lot.

...otherwise it IS an indirect anagram.

lol...anyway I'm only arguing the point because I'm trying to avoid the annoying reality that I'm still stuck on 5A(despite all the hints)10A,16A,3d and 8D.

In 5ac - agree only 1 answer - greenish think drink - pie think diagram.

chartreuse? pie chart? So what? And the only answer I've got is recycle, so I assume that's wrong!

10A it's raining....?

Can anyone explain the parsing of 9D? I have a reasonable answer which fits all the across ones I've done so far, but I have an extraneous a+t in the answer, unless by = at and we're using reverse Polish type parsing...

I've finished the bottom. Are we talking Spice Girls for 16A (from 15D), because I can't understand the actual clue at all?

No idea about 2D. I thought roulade was a great answer for the first half of the clue. Shame it doesn't fit the second :-) Maybe I was just feeling hungry.
