Post-Modern Bride

There was a copy of the magazine 'Modern Bride' lying around the nurses' station last night. It had a picture on its cover of a blonde, smiling young woman in a white sheath wedding dress.

Haven't we gotten past the word 'modern', yet? It sounds so 1920's. This is 2K+. Why don't we have publications like 'Post-Modern Bride'? I imagine the cover model would wear a black bustier, be pierced in several places, and have a tat that read 'Transgress the Gender Hegemonists', or something.


meaning: activity, life
活気 == kakki == energy, liveliness
生活 == seikatsu == life 

Left radical is the radical form of 'water', right is 'tongue' (舌). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Wet tongue is sign of life.'
