Happy Chinese New Year!


It's the year of the Rat, as you probably know, and I think that is most auspicious for myself and all my ratty brethren and cohorts.

May our words flow eloquently, may we have bestsellers in our near future, and may we be surrounded by delicious foodstuffs!

Celebrations to ensue anon.

Midnight in Beijing - we have another 3 or 4 hours of the 1812 Overture to look forward to.

Sleep may be difficult. Maybe I should start to write a war novel.

What kind of rat is that in the picture?????

Hope you get off work early tonight, MR, and have some merry times in Chinatown.
