GUNG HAY FAT CHOY !!!!
I was born in the Year of the Dog, so I hope this means that it's an especially lucky one for me (oh yeah, and you too).
My fortune cookie last night said "success is a ladder you cannot climb with your hands in your pocket". There's a joke in there somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it right now (probably because my hand is in my pocket).
Actually I prefer the horoscope that my friend did for me a few years ago. It said "you are not as nice as people think you are". I shall want that to be my epitaph.

Here are the characteristics of DOG people:

responsible, compassionate, reliable, honest, pessimistic, anxious, overwhelming, nosy

Is it just me or do some of those characteristics cancel each other out?

Apparently those born in my particular year are of the subspecies EARTH DOG. Here's what the powers that be say about us dirt puppies:

The earth Dog is clever and genuine. She is rational and supportive, stable and stoic. Earth gives this Dog an element of security, for she is inspiring and confident. These characters are just, certain to hear both sides before making a decision. She makes a great leader because she is such a trustworthy, diplomatic individual.

Yup, that's me all over!

I am also, of course, a LIBRAN DOG:
These are charismatic characters. Libran Dogs are genuinely concerned about the well-being of other people. They are just and kind souls who value their families and friends.

Gosh, I'm getting all verklempft now...

I hope the Year of the Dog brings you much happiness

Year of the Snake. I missed the Year of the Dragon by one, and surprisingly got teased about it a lot in Grade 6 ... go figure?!

Ruhee said...

OH YEAH, and Air That Grooves, a new podcast BY ME, is now running. Go listen, pretty please? Eva will tell you it's not that painful (I think).

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Ruhee, I don't get grade 6ers. Why is a dragon better than a snake?

I just had a chance to glance at your podcast site, and have to save my listening for tonight, but it looks pretty sweet. The Cons and Weakerthans did End of the Line together at the end of their concert last spring. It was sublime. Good job on getting the podcast up!!

Ruhee said...

I have no idea. Grade 6 is weird enough, and then they throw in this stuff?! I think it was because the year of the dragon ('88) was supposed to be luckier than the year of the snake ('89). I think I'm the snake, anyway. Pfft.

Woohoo! Drop me a line and let me know how it goes, I hear I talk too fast, but hopefully it sounds ok.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

YOu don't talk too fast at all, Ruhee - or maybe I just listen fast - but the podcast sounds great. Everybody, check it out!!!!
