Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year is coming up. For those born in the year of the Tiger (according to Wikipedia):

Tiger (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Wood): Unpredictable, rebellious, colorful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous. Can be cold, restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, ruthless, selfish, aggressive, unpredictable, moody.

One of my former students, Christine, came back from working in China and she brought back a red plush tiger for me to hang in my car. So Chinese-y. Funny how she remembered that was my favorite animal. I love tigers and all, but I don’t know if I could camp out like the guy in the photo above.

Photo taken at the Millbrae Art & Wine Festival, 2009, when my friend Cindy (the one who’s currently into sewing) made me go. Told you she’s artsy-fartsy.
