Trump takes office on the 20th. The Chinese New Year starts on January 28th.

2017 will be the Year of the Rooster.

Roosters are always active, amusing, and popular within a crowd. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful.

Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm on any occasion.

Roosters expect others to listen to them while they speak, and can become agitated if they don’t. Vain and boastful, Roosters like to brag about themselves and their accomplishments.

Their behavior of continually seeking the unwavering attention of others annoys people around them at times.

This is an open thread.

    Thank gawd not whatever the fuck pussified Barry is.

  2. For pure self-delusion, no one could beat Clinton surrogate and Manhattan-raised, Oberlin-educated media darling Lena Dunham, the most famous of the gender experts. Dunham rued the “white women, so unable to see the unity of female identity, so unable to look past their violent privilege, and so inoculated with hate for themselves.” She continued: “It wasn’t supposed to go this way. It was supposed to be her [Clinton’s] job. She worked her whole life for the job. It’s her job.”

      What leftist media women didn’t get, was no different than what the men missed. Everything. They lived and lost in tn their self created bubble. They said it so often, and repeated it like gospel, and so they believed their own bullshit. Right up to the second Trump won. And some of them are still clinging to their delusions.
      Just the way kitty poo clings to the tail fur of a long haired cat, if you don’t keep their fur trimmed, and neglect to clean up where they go, because you are busy playing video games; so they have to go in a pile of poo. But I digress.

      Lena’s still here?
      I thought she would be in Canada by now.

    I thought it was the year of the cock, but we can be PC and call it rooster.

    I hope the year of the cock doesn’t suck.

    Year of the Fire Roosters (2017)

    The rooster ranks tenth of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. The rooster is a clever animal who is frequently compared to a smart person. Image is all important to the Fire Rooster; he spends a lot of time making himself look good, making him appear vain. He is flaunty and dramatic, yet he is a brilliant social organizer who loves to plan parties and gatherings.

    Fire Roosters tend to be bossy and this, combined with their bluntness, can cause hurt feelings and bruised egos amongst colleagues. Still, these Roosters make great leaders, who are creative, diligent and motivated.

    Likely Vocations for Rooster people: Roosters are more motivated than any other animal in the Chinese Zodiac. They are multi-talented. Good career choices are: trouble-shooter, detective, doctor, surgeon, psychiatrist, actor, dancer, musician, restaurateur, publicist, travel writer, journalist, soldier, athlete, teacher, police officer, book keeper, accountant.

    The Rooster’s blunt manner and direct approach to life makes them poor diplomats. Rooster women are devoted to duty and seldom boast. They have exceptional vitality and patience and do well in jobs requiring carefulness and flexibility, like social work and teaching.

    Rooster’s likes and aversions:

    Colours: gold, brown, yellow, peach. Avoid: white, green.
    Numbers: 5, 7, 8. Avoid: 3, 9, 1.
    Flowers: gladioli, cockscomb, impatiens.
    Gems: diamond, ruby, topaz.
    Compatible with: Ox, Dragon, Snake. Avoid: Rabbit, Rat, and Dog. Hobbies: fishing, gardening, climbing, swimming, hiking.

    This meme has been around since 2009, never gets old 🙂

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Debbie Reynolds has been rushed to the hospital, following it on twitter, top trending.

  8. Dora says:

    Very Sad. 😦

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Something fun…..how can the press not love him?

  10. Venus says:

    I was born in the year of the Rooster — we’re awesome.

    Also, I read somewhere that Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on January 20th when he’s sworn in — 3 7s is very good omen, IMO.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I remember when Debbie had a Tap Dancing with Debbie as an exercise program for older ladies who didn’t like aerobics or jazzercize. While I was looking for that, found this ‘reunion’ clip of her and Donald O’Connor, it’s cute…..

    • Constance says:

      I love that scene too!

  12. Dora says:

    This is cute.

    • DeniseVB says:

      They still don’t get it. We The Trump People are pretty much in the “Love is never having to say your sorry” genre of politics. Just get on board the train, support the new President and may all your criticisms be constructive. For example, in the Nerd Prom Committee wars over at Deploraball…..

    • lateblum says:

      How beautiful. 💕💕💕

    • DeniseVB says:

      I was a pre-teen during Debbie’s ‘sweetheart’ reign in Hollywood. Bought all those movie mags and slurped up all those delish covers of her and Eddie Fisher through the Eddie dumped Debbie for Elizabeth Taylor til she dumped Eddie for Richard Burton….my youth was a mess! 😉

      • lateblum says:

        Actually, I thought Eddie Fisher was the mess. I mean, honestly, could you ever have seen Elizabeth Taylor with Eddie Fisher??? I know I couldn’t. And when she dumped Fisher for Burton, I thought she had finally come to her senses. But it was still hard to think about how Debbie Reynolds was hurting through all of this.
        I used to sneak looks at those magazines (because my mother wouldn’t allow them in the house — even though I did see “Confidential” in one of her drawers once. teehee).

    The save Betty White GoFundMe page has raised almost 6,000.

  14. This is what I remember best of Debbie Reynolds:

  15. lyn says:

    Debbie Reynolds died! Too sad.

  16. Constance says:

    Trump is a Fire Dog because he was born in 1946. Dolly Parton, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Cher, Alan Rickman, Steven Spielberg and Tim Curry are also Fire Dogs.

  17. Island Girl says:

    We have more chickens and roosters here than people where we live. Pity the one that flies over our fence when my dog is available for some feather flying.
    I think I’m more sad about Debbie than Carrie although I got much out of both of their life issues.
    PS Its still windy and rainy in Hawaii and ready to ship little o back to his new digs:) supposedly he went SNORKELING after the Peal Harbor thing, I call fake news on that, the weather sucks.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Oh, please keep him there! 😀 Their Hawaiian vacays always seem so boring to me, so glad he fit in a visit to the troops and the Japan’s PM so they can stick the flight to there and back on the taxpayers. /sarc

      • Island Girl says:

        Yes eight long years of the fake family Hawaiian vacations to me have proved he is nothing but another tourist here, except he LOVES that they shut the roads and beaches down for their stupid outings. What a disgusting waste of our $$$$$$$!
        LOL it’s just the crappiest weather ever this year😅🐾👣

  18. I realize that this is late notice but I’m hoping one of my co-bloggers will put up a post this morning.

    We moved about an hour due south, and because of the shape of the coastline, we’re closer to the shore. Which means we get less snow on average than we’re used to, but we live with a lot more uncertainty. Unless the storm is massive, when there’s an inland snowstorm, we’re on the rain/snow line. When there’s a coastal storm, we’re on the rain/snow line. Today we’re either going to drown or be buried under 2 ft of snow. Ellie looked out the window and went back to bed, and it hasn’t even started yet.

    Another Hillary sighting.

    At least she is out of the woods.
