Do I really want to know what a goth/industrial chef is? I think I'm afraid of that kind of food.

To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?

But the D&D quiz said I was a gnome! Wait, Middle Earth doesn't have gnomes. Okay, I guess dwarves are close enough.

But those who fell in Azanulbizar were honoured in memory, and to this day a dwarf will say proudly of one of his sires: "he was a burned dwarf", and that is enough.

I've had a lousy couple days at work. However, the other night, I learned something new. A professional wrestler came into the ER and was admitted to the hospital. A real professional wrestler, with one of the major franchises who travels around all over the continent with the tour. I hadn't heard of his name, but some of the other ER staff who follow wrasslin' had. Guess who his insurance carrier was?

The Screen Actors Guild.

SOKU
iki
meaning: breath, rest, child
休息 == kyuusoku == rest
息子 == musuko == son


Top radical is 'self' (自), used here in its literal meaning of 'nose'. Bottom radical is 'heart' (心), meaning 'essence of life'. The 'essence of life' associated with nose is, of course, breath. The origin of the other meanings is obscure. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Heart breathes through the nose.'
