Bye for now

Fiendish is the Word will be shut down until further notice. Real life has been asserting itself with a vengeance these days and I find myself falling further and further behind with this weblog. Rather than updating once in a blue moon, I figured that it would be better to take an (extended) break.

Much thanks to all the linkers and visitors--you validated my funny, little obsessions. Bless you for that!
