While talking on the phone to my sister tonight our conversation happened across how she would describe me in relation to our other siblings... and she said benign. Huh, benign. Huh. Here's the definition for your review.

Main Entry: be·nign
Pronunciation: bi-'n
InFunction: adjective
Etymology: Middle English benigne, from Anglo-French, from Latin benignus, from bene + gignere to beget -- more at KIN
1 : of a gentle disposition : GRACIOUS
2 a : showing kindness and gentleness b : FAVORABLE, WHOLESOME
3 a : of a mild type or character that does not threaten health or life; especially : not becoming cancerous b : having no significant effect : HARMLESS

Could be worse, I guess.
