Postby Catmando » Thu Feb 15, 2007 1:52 pm

Sunday Feb. 18th is the Chinese New Year. It is the "Year of the Pig"!

What "year" were you born?

I'm from the "Year of the Tiger"

Isn't the Year of the Pig sort of non-PC these days? I thought they changed it to Year of the Boar.......

anyway, I'm from the Year of the B****, i.e.....Dog.

Hmm, the calendar I'm looking at says "Pig", not boar.

I looked at Year of the Tiger. It says my "countries" are: Russia, Romania, Spain, Turkey, El Salvador, North Korea.

Year of the Wood Ox. Incidentally, my birthday, as per the traditional calendar, comes under the zodiac sign of the bull.

Year of the rabbit for me too Piqaboo (you wascally wabbit you). We are:

People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

Serenity you are:

1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people¡¦s confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues. Dog people make good leaders. They are compatible with those born in the Years of the Horse, Tiger, and Rabbit.

Platypi are very loyal individuals. They do not like dishonesty or mockery of any sort. They are blunt, up front and honest people and expect those around them to be the same. Platypi are happiest when they are surrounded by others, at a party or just a social gathering. They even enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charisma and wit in a minute. This star quality can be overbearing, for a Platypus expects you to listen to him while he speaks and can become agitated if you don’t. Platypi do have a tendency to brag about themselves and their achievements and demand an attentive audience when doing so.

Do Platypi tend to be ultra-conservatives? :lol:

Hey! Sentences 3, 5 and 6 contradict sentence 1. Where did you find these? Do they have some good dog leaders listed? I need a good role model to save me from some of those other qualities you listed.
