Welcome to the Year of the Tiger! It's a great year ... because I'm a Tiger, a Water Tiger to be precise. I hope that this new year be a good one for you too.

I looked it up a while back and I am a wood monkey....you'd never have guessed would ya?...anyway I don't remember how wood monkeys and white metal tigers get along. My husband is a dragon, but I'll have to look up what element he is.
Probably pretty strong. They get along with monkeys. :) My husband is Dragon and is highly compatible with monkey. One the other hand you and I may not get along :)

I think I might be morphing from a positive person into one who has depressing thoughts. When I saw that picture and read this post all I could think about is how endangered tigers are and how they're endangered because they're being hunted down to provide ingredients for Chinese medicine, the same Chinese who name a year after the tiger. It's all so ironic and tragic.

I'll stop having depressive thoughts now.

Happy Year of the Tiger, you water tiger you.
