Happy Year of the Rabbit!
Today is the Chinese New Year that rings in this Zodiac sign. Which means our little babies will be bunnies!
Let's learn a little about them, shall we (if someone knows a better source, do share):

The rabbit is one of the most delicate animals among all 12 animals. Rabbits are usually kind and sweet and of course, popular people. Nobody ignores them, for they are good company and know how to make the best of themselves. A rabbit's home is always a beautiful one cause Rabbit people are famous for their artistic sense and good taste..... Calm as they are, it is not easy to provoke Rabbit people. They don't like to argue and enjoy quiet, peaceful lives. They are also sentimental and compassionate. Yes, and they cry easily too. They can be moved by personal problems you share with them....The Rabbit is quick, clever and ambitious, but seldom finishes what he starts. He epitomizes gentleness, refinement and elegance, turning his back on conflicts of any kind. Preferring a situation that is perfectly favorable according to his specific desires, the Rabbit bypasses all obstacles and persons he does not find suitable. As a result, he is rarely angry, hostile or aggressive. Companions quickly forget any discord, only remembering his seductive grace.
This news makes the aviator bunnies all the more appropriate, no? I am a monkey, and have always really identified as such. I have a few treasured little monkey toys from my childhood. I think this might be a good tradition to pass on.
How about you? Any rabbits out there?

  1. my most excellent mom is a rabbit, and the artistic stuff is right on. don't let the description of calmness fool you, though - she looooooves to argue.

  2. shit. i was picturing this serene little baby/toddler.......

  3. yeah, my sister is a rabbit too. that bitch is the opposite of calm. :/ i would say the sheep, my sign, is very calm. i'm hoping i can pass a little of that on.

  4. My husband is a rabbit. I find this description fairly accurate. He's slow to anger, but the man broods like no other, ha. xo.

  5. Let's hear it for the baby bunnies!


    I don't know where this 'calm' crap comes from, rabbits have the shittiest tempers. (Actual rabbits, I know nothing of human rabbits.)
