I've had my welcome mat for a while.

I bought it some time in '99 or so. It has four Chinese Characters on it, jiā

Roughly translated, it means "bless our home," or, more appropriately, "enrich our home."

Arriving home from work today, I noticed there was something slipped under my door knocker. I get a lot of things slipped under the door knocker--package notices, condo association newsletters--so I didn't think much of it. But when I drew it out, I found a slip of paper, rough around the edges, with the characters written out, their Anglicizations underneath, and their individual translations under that:

"happiness radiance our home"

It's neat that someone took the time to look up the meaning of my welcome mat, print it out, and let me know.

Hopefully, she's cute.

On another note, I think my back is worse than I initially suspected.

[User Picture]See, that's where the entire "hopefully" comes in. I know where I live, too.
