Clarion West wants four, count 'em four, copies of two stories, plus a bio and what-clarion-west-means-to-me. Well, so much for that ink cartridge.

And I'm halfway through my last ream of foolscap, so I went out to buy more paper, too. I had intended to get a couple of reams. But you  know, I've run through a couple reams just in the past six months. What the hell. I bought a case.

I never thought I'd be buying a case of paper. It will take me more than a few months to go through. But I suspect I'll finish it eventually.

meaning: average, level, alike

平均 == heikin == average, equilibrium, balance
不均衡 == fukinkou == (an) imbalance, disparity, inequity, out of balance

Left radical is 'ground' (土), right is somewhat obscure. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'ladle' (勺) and a 'one' (一), and as a mnemonic: 'Level ground with one ladle?!'
