Yappy New Year!

Welcome to the year of the fire dog.

I was born in the year of the metal dog (Feb 6, 1970 to Jan 26, 1971). As all my various horoscopes, chart readings, zodiac and Myers-Briggs tests indicate, I am loyal, a good leader, keeps secrets for friends, hard-headed, blah blah blah. They are all the same and remarkably accurate for me.

The Beaverhausen family has a new dog named 'Saffy'. But, since it's the year of the fire dog they shoulda named it 'Safire'. Is it named after the sagacious daughter from 'AbFab'? Does that make John and Jamie more like Edie and Patsy? The answer is too obvious.

They're going to revoke your membership card if you're not careful Jimbo. "Saffy" or "Saffron" was the daughter, aka the "miserable little turnip." "Bubble" was the secretary.

My favorite quote:

"I mean, why not just have a Stupidity Tax? Just tax the stupid people!"

Tsk-- Bubble was the AbFab secretary. Saffy was Edina's daughter. Let me see your gay card! ;-)

I was about to leave the same comment as the two above. Good way to deflect from the "dawg" comments, though.

Man, I just read the personality description for the metal dog (I made the cut with 4 days to spare). Amazing how accurate it is.

Well, except the "high moral stance" part . . . if you believe guys sleeping with guys is immoral there's a problem there. Just to be on the safe side, I'm modifying it to "high standards," i.e., "because of the high standards for the guys they choose to sleep with, they are inspiring beyond measure." Much better.

I'm so sorry! I'll do my AbFab homework more thoroughly next time! Error corrected.

Hmmm. I had no idea that I was a metal dog (October 1970), and I would prefer to be a diamond dog. I am definitely not a wallflower.

How come we don't have a gay calendar of years?

Of course, in hindsight, we all come off as quite the bitchy AbFab queens. I guess we're just compensating for the fact that, though we apparently have excellent AbFab street cred, our bird watching street cred is lacking.

Incidentally, I'm going to Panama in three weeks. Anything special I should be on the look out for as I wander around the tropical research centers?

I don't know how I was not able to put this together previously - other than perhaps I suck at math.

you were born in the 70s?

suddenly I am feeling rather old.
