Happy Chinese New Year, blogfriends!

(I’m a fan of new years–I advocate celebrating as many as you can. You can’t have too many fresh starts, right? I try to make a point of at celebrating at least four every year.)

I used to live in the a part of San Francisco that had a giant parade on Chinese New Year’s…nothing like waking up hungover and seeing a 50 foot long dragon snaking down the road in front of your house.

This year is especially promising, of course, because it’s the Year of the Pig…so this Virgo Pig is expecting great things.

(And I’ve been writing…though my advisor suggests, and I tend to agree, that this thing I’m writing is actually an introduction, and not so much a chapter. But whatever. It’s about halfway done.)
