2012~ The Year of The Dragon

'12 Animal Years ' crayon carvings by artist Diem Chaw  
Oh my-my...how amazing are they!
The Chinese Zodiac is a twelve year rotation and there is an animal 
associated with each year. If you must know ~I'm a Monkey!
Character/personality traits for those born in the year of the Monkey:
clever, creative, improviser, intellectual, inventive, sociable, quick-witted. 
errr-errr...intellectual, me really??!
All I know is that I'm curiously nosy, that's for sure!
" so excuse me...what is your animal sign? "

How cool are those, and it must require alot of patience! My sign is the rooster, which as confidence,pompousness,motivation,loyal and trustworhty as traits. I find all the sign as neat to reseach.

The traits of the Monkey fit you to a T. Don't you just love being told you possess all those wonderful characteristics!!

I'm a RAT! My husband is too! I don't know if we're a good match or not according to the Chinese. We celebrated our 43rd anniversary last year so something's working!!

You're a monkey! I am a Monkey too. Yay! I remember when I was young (a million years ago) whenever I tell people that I am a monkey, they go "oh that explains it.." explains what? That I look like a Monkey? Hmph. you forgot one other trait, we're pretty cunning too (apparently). I am so excited about this year, according to Lilian Too's feng shui book for Monkeys (my bible) says it will bring good career and financial luck for us this year. Hurrah! Bring on the dough! xx
