You Bring Out the Animal in Me

It is not unknown for The Father of This Lot to enter a room, survey the systematic anihilation of it by his brood and declare:




'It's like living with animals'




He has several variations on this theme, including:




'If pigs lived here, they'd move out'




'If you had a dog living in these conditions, you'd have it put down'




and that old tea-time favourite:




'I'll bet the chimps at Chester Zoo don't make this much mess at feeding time'





So in his honour, and because it is Chinese New Year, I have researched what type of animal our birthdates relate to in the Chinese calendar.




We consist of a Ram, a Dragon, a Rabbit, a Rooster, a Boar and 2 Oxen. Not a pig, dog or chimp in sight.




Then, in for a penny, I thought I might as well see if our character traits matched up.






The Football Fanatic: Intelligent, enthusiastic, brave

The Singer: Bit of a loner, can be very outspoken

The Fixer: Tolerant and determined

The Peacemaker: Kind, gentle, even-tempered

The Noise: Friendly and sentimental




Me: Dependable, trustworthy and patient




And the Father of This Lot?




First to complain about something, pessimistic




How amazingly accurate.




Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Oh dear, I'm a snake. I'm glad I followed your link. Most of the descriptions I've found before have been far from flattering!

I'll think I'll stick with the description offered here - 'Love the finer things in life, so only the best is good enough. Good at making and saving money.'

I can definitely be guaranteed to pick the most expensive item in any shop blindfold - just ask the PF! Trouble is I'm definitely NOT good at making or saving money - SPENDING is my forte!
