Talking Dreaded puzzles

Just wondering- anybody dislike any categories or options? Personally, I don't like butterflies, medications or directions. Also, categories with options that are different spellings of the same choice.
I am glad that the times are in order in the grid now. It was difficult when 8:30pm was above 8:00pm. Thanks for fixing that.

I don't like where the choices look similar either. If i don't like what I see on the new game, I refresh for a new puzzle, without it having an effect on the scores.

I go for a new game, too. I'm going for success this month, so I'm being choosy. Plus it's more fun when I don't get frustrated and beat myself up for marking the wrong square when the options look alike, especially sideways.

Having similar clues doesn't bother me - I like the added challenge. It has occasionally led to longer solve times when I make silly mistakes. :P But it's good that the option is there for those who don't want to put up with trying to keep the clues straight.

Question

You've got me wondering: are some options similar on purpose to increase difficulty or simply an accident of random generation?

Yeah, Isaiah and Izaiah have caused me a lot of trouble on a couple of puzzles.
