French for "shit". Suitable for describing just about everything in my life right now.
Rimbaud once scrawled "Merde a Dieu!" (shit on God) as graffiti in Paris.

In addition to being French for, "shit", "Merde" is a term used by ballet dancers (male or female) before they go on stage. This is the equivalent to "break a leg" in theatre.
(imagine yourself backstage...)
"Hey, merde."
"...thanks"
