I love that picture!
I also love being Chinese, except for the fact that some people send out innocent mass emails to everybody on their contact list wishing them Happy Chinese New Year, but then the losers start replying to everybody [including me!! GRR...] bragging about how much money they got and it turns into a competition..."OHHH $130 BEAT THAT!!"

Yay! It's my year! Did you know that if your Chinese zodiac character year is here, they say you'll be unlucky for the entire year. Unless you wear something red every day. Sleeping, bathing, school... Ect. I;m wearing a dyed-red rabbit tail. *D WHOO!! I love being Chinese! I think I'm kinda half Tiwanese and Chinese. ^^' Hayy Chinese New Year!! Shin nean quai la rensu ru i! (Have a happy Chinese New Year!)

Pigs ARE lucky that's why it's called the year of the golden pig and there was a baby boom in China last year(dogs are lucky too).

Where do they get all those 2's?? I know some people who do that, but the problem with people giving out rare-ish coins or bills is that I never want to spend them, haha [I have a collection of $2 bills and 50 cent coins lying around...lol]

I'm just wondering-how many people here are boys? Are there any?? lol.
Oh yeah, and how old are you people?

I'm turning 14 tomorrow [on the 8th]! :D
And in case you haven't guessed, yes, I'm a girl xD

FRUITS BASKET!!!!
I LOVE Fruits Basket! Happy Birthday Yuki-kun!I THINK that the Vietnamese Zodiac has the cat in it, in the place of the rabbit, poor Momiji. BTW- Fruits Basket vol 18 was on the best seller list (or something like that) longer than a Naruto manga book. Belive it!

There are may stories about the cat, I'll tell you one.
The cat and the rat were best friends, but couldn't swim.They HAD to swim in this race that God had thought of to choose the 12 animals for the Chinese Zodaic. God let 13 animals compete.
SOOOO, the rat and the cat teamed up tricked the ox/ cow into letting them ride on his back.
But once the rat, cat and cow were half way across the river the rat pushed the cat off the cow and into the river, the cat lost the reat won.
He was betrayed by his best friend.

If you go by Chinese years, I was born in the Year of the Dog, but if you're an ignorant American or some such and go by the Gregorian calendar, I'm a pig xD
