Ick. What is this, Portland?

It is scatteredly showering as I write.

In other news, I got the rest of my current root canal yesterday. The procedure went fine, but now my tooth hurts again. If experience is a guide, it will continue to hurt for at least another 24 hours until whatever was stirred up by the root canal procedure goes away. Sigh. I'm so tired of this.

And this morning we had the faculty meeting from heck, 2.5 hours in an overheated room, being serenaded by people from other departments who want to tell us what to do in droning voices mouthing thoughts that are either platitudinous or make no damned sense.

Life just kind of sucks right now. Never mind. This will pass.

And now I feel better already, 30 minutes later. Maybe it was the Häagen-Dazs Butter Pecan. How &^%$#@ odd. My mood swings are getting shorter and shorter. I'm getting whiplash.

meaning: body
身体 == shintai == body

Originally a pictograph of a pregnant woman, viewed from the side, originally meaning 'pregnant body', now meaning 'body' in general. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Pregnant woman has conspicuous body.'
