Hey hey I'm a monkey!

But 2007 is not. No, 2007 is a year of the pig - and not just any pig, it's the year of the GOLDEN pig. So get your wheels in motion, because according to the Chinese (and Korean) calendar - this is a FANTASTIC year to fall in love - and if you've been there, done that - then by all means - make a baby!

Lest you doubt the significance of this opportunity, a Golden Pig Year only comes once every 600 years. How do I know this? I spent last night catching up with my wise friend Hye, who un-married (though happily co-habitating) and pushing forty is challenging every social norm held in her Korean family - and is being urged to get married once and for all this GOLDEN PIG year. Further, the future mother-in-law wouldn't mind a grandchild - and if that's in the works - then why not make it a golden-pig baby?

For anyone else contemplating such life decisions, you can get your own Korean calendar with a "friendly fatty in the Korean subconscious" here.

*I should probably stay away from pigs in my search for love - according to this Pig + Monkey in love (I think my imagination just exploded) have the undesirable affect of heightended sexual tension due to a constant need to disagree. But wait, isn't sexual tension sometimes a good thing?

I find a nice comfort zone with being single and now the Koreans are out to stress me out. Curses!

Hmm. That's hopeful, I guess.

And yes, I agree that heightened sexual tension tends to be good, in my book.

When it comes to sex, my wife often gets a tension headache. Does that constitute sexual tension?

Sexual tension is a fabulous thing, for matters I won't totally go into. Is your blog family friendly?

Thanks for the golden pig notice too. I have no desire to make babies (or even get married just yet), but I'll make sure to have a spectacular time skirting around these issues with my beloved!

Happy new year too!

Wellll... in this day and age, is there really any need to just stay horny and get all the more frustrated?

Man, hands, toys, get it DONE, I say! Release is often required, no?

Here here! And on the tension front - the best part about fighting is getting to make up :)
