Whatever. That's so fakey. Cultures different from my own are just wrong.
Happy chinese New Year to you, Razerwire!
Ah right! Happy New Year, I'm the year of the rat too. hehehe.
Gong xi fa cai.
Year of the rat, eh? I guess it's fitting with both Canadian and American federal elections happening this year.
It's the Year of the Earth Rat. It's supposed to be a good year.
Hooray! Ang Pao money to buy toys with!
...now if only there were any TFs to buy here...
Cool. I celebrated by eating Chinese for lunch.
...okay, okay, it was just a coincidence.
Thanks for free lunch, evil pharm reps!
Thanx hooked on phonics did not work for me
For those who are curious, the Year of the Rat is the beginning of another 12 year cycle.
The order goes like this:
There's a children's story about how that order came to be. It was a race of animals essentially.
I was born in a Year of the Cock.
I used to think that was lame. Then I got a little older and realized it was AWESOME.
Happy New Year! I'm from a Year of the Dragon. I should grow a long dragon moustache. Like Pei Mei.
But one zodiac cycle ago I got bullied by girls, got last position in class, academic and non-academic alike, and got taunted "fat" by my class mates. It was a nightmare, so I hate year of the rat.
At least the same persons who did that to me respect me today, or suffer the worst fate than me.
Oh yeah I was borned in the year of the tiger.
Happy New Year! I'm a year of the rat guy myself...
Ah but one cycle ago it was the Year of the Fire Rat. Probably not a good year. 1996/1997. My junior and senior year in highschool. Yeah it wasn't that great for me either.
