Interminable: This cough. Doctor gave me nose-spray and said I should lug out the humidifier.

Lovely: zalena dropped by after work this evening for conversation and tacos from La Casita. Both were very enjoyable.

Disconcerting: I recently realized that someone I know only online is not the gender I thought they were. There's nothing negative about that, it's just surprising.

Difficult: Writing to a set word-count. Especially when there's no good reason to do it that way, I just decided to. Is hyphenating compounds cheating?
