Words I'm surprised Word do know: caryatid

Mean Things: cursing, ensorcelment, ravishment-by-faeries, burning people's feet off by making them dance on hot coals, the usual.
Darling du jour:  As he tore open the green paper package of Quaker oatmeal, the sound echoed through a silent hall.

There's always one more quirk in the character: Man, that Faerie Queen can curse like a sailor.

Other writing-related work: Sonny Liston comes off the checklist. After the gym, I will do the proofreader queries on Carnival.
