    All right! Like the French revolutionary calendar, but with animals!

    The first beast could be the simplest for simple two-legged types to keep, the bimac. :octopus:

    Proposals for the next month/year/installment? :tentacle:

    Dunno anymore since I need 24 different cephs. And the months and years MUST follow the 12 year cycle.

    Happy New Year! We were in LA's Chinatown, were danced upon by lions, and bought Wu-Fu pillows. It's my year as well. Very nice.

    Such a nice touch of synchronicity: I saw the "Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band" 40th Anniversary reunion gig last night just off the Charing Cross Road in London. To get there we walked straight through Chinatown from Picadilly Circus, and there were Chinese decorations everywhere!

    A good evening to celebrate the Dog indeed.

    yum...dog (Just joking, folks!)

    I just got back from mainland China after celebrating Chinese New Year with my father's folk's family back at the not-so-village-like village.
    And we blew some stuff up, planning to post some pictures and vidoes, but not sure if anyone's interested, anyone?
