Via Snopes, the most popular 2006 Halloween costumes for kids, and for adults.

Note that the most popular costume for kids is 'Princess'. For adults, 'Witch'. "Girls who cannot become princesses must become witches."

Or at least pirates. Or vampires (generic).



Off to WFC early tomorrow. Hope to see many of you there!




TEI


meaning: boat

舟艇 == shuutei == (noun) boat, watercraft
艇庫 == teiko == (noun) boathouse




Left radical is 'boat' (舟). Right radical is 'court' (廷), acting phonetically to express 'small'. Originally this character meant 'small boat'; now it means 'boat' more generally. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Court has its own boat.'
