Happy Year of the Sheep/Goat/Ram! Fun fact: It’s the same Chinese character “羊” for all three words, so you can use them interchangeably. Year of the Ram is what you’ll hear most often in English, because it sounds a lot cooler than Year of the Goat, but if we’re going to be completely honest with ourselves, the latter holds truer to the Chinese Zodiac. Sorry to disappoint any of you would-be rams out there. With that said, I hope everyone has Chinese food in their plans today. Brian and I certainly do, but other than that, we’re taking it really easy (he’s recovering from surgery, me from my cold), and the same spirit will likely extend into the weekend. Translation: this will be the last you hear from me this week. Now, if I were a 10 on the Chinese scale, I’d take the whole month off, because in China, that’s the standard vacation time for the occasion. Lucky for you, I’m more like a 7 (or a 3 according to Brian), so I hope to be back at it and in full health on Monday.
Until then, I’m wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
