My boss, despairing of getting a herd of cats group of doctors ever to write their names legibly enough for the billing clerks to read, has assigned us all alphanumeric identifiers instead.

"You," he said, "are A23."

"I'm not a number," I cried, "I am a free man!"

"Mwahahahahaha!" laughed A01.

So it turns out I'm not a free man after all, but rather a busy highway that runs from London to Brighton, someone with an interest in English prehistory (mmmm, standing stones and beehive tombs...), and some whale movies.

I AM A23. [clickclickclickwhirrattlebuzzbuzzclickclick]

Sorry about the kanji. I've been unable to access my hosting space at Splashhost for the last day (or even to get through to their main site,, although it's still displaying stuff previously uploaded there). Dunno what's happening.

[Later: fixed?]

mi(chiru), mi(tasu)
meaning: full, fill

満月 == mangetsu == full moon
満足 == manzoku == satisfaction

Left radical is 'water'. The right radical originally meant 'join both halves of gourd together, and phonetically meant 'full/overflowing'. Henshall suggests taking the top radical as 'grass', and as a mnemonic: 'Both grass and water can be filling.'
