happy 4705 (or 4706)

The rats have it. If you were born in 1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984 or 1996, you are a rat, my friend (no offense), and this is your year. To learn more about your Chinese astrological sign - and to get a heads up on where the road might take you - clicky here.

(I just realized: My Great-Aunt Irene was born in 1900. She'll be 108 this July. Uh huh. That's not a typo. Aunt Irene gets herself to the beauty parlor every week, and she makes sure to nab a couple of chalupas from the Taco Bell drive-thru on the way. These rats are onto something.)

As usual, a brilliant post. Love this picture (woke me right up), love this story. Your great aunt is a marvel. She sounds indestructible, like the rat itself.

Love the post, and I hope it's the zodiac, not the Taco Bell, that sustains your Aunt's longevity.

The photo is almost as stunning as the news about your Aunt Irene. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
