Happy Chinese New Year, folks!

Between the Olympics and feasting with family it was a busy weekend/Valentine's/Family Day.

Man, I'm still stuffed!

So, we're in the Year of The Tiger now which... well, I wasn't really sure what it meant.

Apparently I'm a 'Monkey'. And, well, Monkeys and Tigers don't get along.

Oh, joy. (See above picture for reason why... NOTE: You can see the rest of the tiger pics here.)

If you were born in 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 or 2010 then you're a Tiger.

Which also means that you may find yourself living a successful and fulfilled life as an: Actor, Comedian, Chauffeur, Musician, Race Car Driver, Pilot, Artist, Writer, Flight Attendant, Travel Agent, Advertising Agent or Office Manager.

Here's a ton of 'information' on the Chinese Zodiac should you be so inclined, you may find that you fit the descriptions... or not.

Either way, it's kind of a fun little read.

At the very least it's a great collection of imagination flint for us writer-ly types.
