So according to the Chinese calendar, we're just days away from the Year of the Rat. An inspiring animal? Not exactly, but then again, neither is the pig. And it could always be worse; imagine if you were born in the Year of the Slug.
Fortunately, the slug doesn't exist on the Chinese calendar, but what if? I'm trying to think of some animal names that would automatically make a year seem AWESOME. "Year of the Bull" sounds kinda cool, but I'd be a little concerned about "Year of the Hippo." What kind of year is this going to be for you? If you could pick any animal to characterize it, which would you choose and why?
