Happy belated Robbie Burns day. The guy in the picture above is some dude from my university which happens to have a world champion bag-pipe band.
Hmm.... hot guys in skirts blowing into noisy bags... SIGN ME UP!
It also happens to be Chinese New Year season which was brought to my attention when I stopped at my local grocery store to pick up provisions.
2005 is the year of the Rooster.
I happen to be a rooster myself so I hope this will be a good year for me. A rooster description:
The Year Of The Rooster
1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005
People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail. People born in the Rooster Year are often a bit eccentric, and often have rather difficult relationship with others. They always think they are right and usually are! They frequently are loners and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster people¡¦s emotions like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave. They are most compatible with Ox, Snake, and Dragon
I'm not sure if that describes me or not. It is at least if not more accurate than my other zodiac description (Taurus) that describes me as stubborn and materialistic. (the stubborn part might kind of be true - but that is because I'm a rooster and roosters are usually right)
