  • A girlfriend once told me I am a droll person. It sounded derogatory, so I looked it up and was relieved to see that it meant funny. But what kind of funny? Am I some kind of clown to her? I don't feel whimsical like the definition here says. It's so perplexing because there are conflicting definitions. I've interpreted it also as dry or ironic humor. So which is it? Can you tell droll humor from other types?

  • Japanese aesthetic vocabulary. Originally "profound or mysterious" but now mainly "intuitively sensed" and lying "beyond" art, related to "eternal loneliness".

    Can anybody confirm this? I thought for the longest time that yugen meant a heightened spiritual awareness. For instance like during a deep meditation.

  • I love the word panties. It's cute, delicate, and sort of naughty, just like the word for a woman's underwear should be.
