    Today the plumbers were in to fit a shower screen and generally make a mess of my bath room.

  • 袋鼠

    dàishǔ - kangaroo

    Today I had a kangaroo burger from the same place that I got the ostrich burger. It wasn't as nice.

    袋鼠产於澳大利亚。
    Kangaroos are indigenousto Australia.

  • 淋浴

    línyù - take a shower

    This was nciku's word of the day and is very useful. It's also vaguely topical as I bought a new shower hose.

    我家的淋浴器出了故障,总是漏水。
    The shower facility of my home was broken, and it always dribbled.

  • 肺结核

    fèijiéhé - tuberculosis

    Today I watched an interesting TED talk about training rats to find land mines and tuberculosis. Tuberculosis add to my list of unlikely-to-arise-in-conversation science word. It is literally 'lung knot stone'.

    他感染了肺结核
    He contracted tuberculosis.

  • shǔ - heat, hot weather

    I vaguely remember this character from Japanese (I think it's atsui, meaning 'hot'). Although it's definitely not pertinent to the current cold snap, Victoria send me an article, in which it has been named the character of this year. It's interesting to look at the previous winners, though it all seems very arbitrary.
