Happy Year of the Horse!

It reads better in the original uncut color version, but I had to mash it to fit in my format. Weazels stealz.

Actually, Chinese New Year is tomorrow, but we all know what we’ll be doing tomorrow here at Mustelid Central. 6pm WBT. Dead Pool Round 59!

Man, that’s a lot of scrolling.

TL;DR: A TON of stuff about luck, and Evil Spirits.

Childcare blog? Are there mini weasels and badgers on the horizon?

Plus points if you can work the phrase “Chinaman’s Chance” into the conversation.

I was in Beijing for Spring Festival 2005, when they allowed residents to set off fireworks for the first time in 12 years. It sounded like one of the major artillery duels from WW I for a week. The Chinese don’t fuck around with pissy little fireworks like Americans do – they go right for the heavy duty, pro stuff.

Oh, Mrs C, slap yourself, hard. No. Oh, nonono.

One Winter many years ago, when I was over to visit Uncle B in London, we decided to go into town for a meal. Ended up in Chinatown; totally did not know ahead of time it was Chinese New Year. Just awesome.

Year of the Horse? I thought we still had to get through another three years of the Jackass.

No Sweas, I agree with Mrs. Compton. You and Uncle B are the sort of people who ought to be reproducing.

I sent the graphic to a couple of Chinese students I know living here in the U.S. One, a graduate student, replied:

“Most of the items on the graph[ic] are true, but people usually take 1 week holiday these days by merging 3 public holidays and two weekends so it’s a party week! All the families and friends can get together. But the firework is not allowed in most cities this year due to the heavy air pollution problem these days in China. Also, the uncut noodles are always eaten on birthday[s] to wish a long and healthy life, not for the spring festival, we usually eat dumplings in [the] north part of China and people [who] live in the south eat stick cakes, as well as a lot of other yummy foods.”

That’s awesome, Kilroy. At first I thought that was Etsy, and I looked around for a price 🙁

Problem with posting anything in the Dead Pool thread is that nobody ever sees it. Conversation gets swallowed up.

It’s also making it harder for me to find spam. Have you noticed how much is getting through lately? Pain in the ass. At the moment, it’s showing up on three particular threads (varying ages), which tells me it’s the same bot or bots over and over again.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
