FFFF #12: Chinese Zodiac

This week's FFFF is going to be a little different. I want you to do a post about your Chinese Zodiac sign, the traits of that animal, and if you think you resemble that. The Chinese Zodiac is said to be very accurate, so it will be fun to see if you agree in your case. You may include a photo of yourself or your animal sign (I won't even require that it be a pic you took!) When you've done your post, please come back here and fill out the Mr. Linky with the direct URL to your post. Detailed directions for participating in FFFF and how to do get the direct URL to your post can be found here.

You can find out which animal year you are by looking at this site. If you click the pic of the animal it will give you a detailed description of your sign. You can find a brief description at this site (click animal names right below the zodiac) Please note: If you are born in Jan or in Feb, you aren't necessarily the animal posted for your year. The Chinese calendar is different than than ours. That first site I listed gives exact dates.

I am a horse (...although real horses scare me!)

People born in the Year of the Horse are popular. They are cheerful, skillful with money, and perceptive, although they sometimes talk too much. The are wise, talented, good with their hands, and sometimes have a weakness for members of the opposite sex. They are impatient and hot-blooded about everything except their daily work. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are very independent and rarely listen to advice. They are most compatible with Tigers, Dogs, and Sheep.

I think there are some truths to that description. Actually it's all very accurate, but I don't think I am hot-blooded. Or not so much anymore. I am definitely impatient, independent, cheerful, perceptive, and I talk too much!! If weakness for the opposite sex can be defined as a flirt...then I am guilty!
For fun I am posting my kindergarten pic that I just scanned. Gotta LOVE that collar!!Now is your turn! Follow make a post with the directions above and add it to the Mr. Linky below. PLEASE put the direct link to the post in the Mr. Linky. Direct link is best so people don't have to scroll through your blog to try to find your post. You have until Thurs, Feb 5th to post your entry.
*Yes...some say they don't beleive in the zodiac or that the descriptions can apply to anyone, but let's have fun with it!
