Word help

Please can someone suggest a better word (any word will be better) than amphibious to suggest the OED's third definition:

3. Having two lives; occupying two positions; connected with or combining two classes, ranks, offices, qualities, etc.

(I can only come up with "a foot in both camps", inappropriate, or "dual role", which is dull.)

Today I learned a valuable lesson: sometimes taking what seems like the sensible (and easiest) route, leads to banging one's head against the wall screaming "But everyone who reads it will think you want to recruit a frog!"

ETA: Also, does anyone have a good, simple recipe for a red-lentil based dal/dhal/daal?
