According to the Chinese calendar the Year of the Ox begins January 26.
It is about time the Chinese calendar finally recognized John Candy's comedic brilliance in "Stripes."

Tiger Beat magazine... do they still make that rag ? When looking through the magazines my older sister used to read growing up, I much preferred the mags with the bra and panty ads in them...

The really weird thing was I was coming to your blog today to tell everyone that if they call me Francis I will kill them. It's SOOO much more appropriate now :)
