Have you noticed there’s a LOT happening today?
First of all, I would like to wish my boyfriend, Gerard Butler, a Happy Valentine’s Day and weekend! Here’s a shot of Gerard at the Golden Globes which I unfortunately was not able to attend.
Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Heart’s Day!
BUT not only is it Valentine’s Day it's also the beginning of the Chinese New Year!
Kung Hee Fat Choy!
in 2010, the Chinese New Year is on February 14th and it is The Year of the Tiger. The Chinese New Year follows the Chinese zodiac, a twelve month cycle, which the Chinese believe each person born under a particular character/animal takes on the characteristic of that animal.
You are a Tiger if you are born in: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
Famous Tigers include: Sir David Attenborough, Natalie Wood, Tom Berenger, Agatha Christie, H.G. Wells, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Dickinson, Isadora Duncan, Roberta Flack, Frederick Forsyth, Jodie Foster, Stevie Wonder Sir Alec Guiness, Hugh Hefner, William Hurt, Dylan Thomas, Marilyn Monroe, Demi Moore, Beatrix Potter, Diana Rigg, Lionel Ritchie, Kenny Rogers.
The Tiger is considered to be a risk taker in life and a leader, rather than a follower. People born under the sign of the tiger are adventurous, self starters who are first to take on something new. They look for solutions to challenging situation rather than focus on the problems and shortcomings. They are positive in their outlook and surround themselves with people who are open, honest, effective and productive. The Tiger is thought to be a lucky sign but someone who is more likely to make their own luck. They are courageous in what they do, and proud of their achievements. They are also known to look after their appearance and sometimes can appear vain. Tigers are confident people who like the lime light, and possess a high level of personal presence.
AND DON’T FORGET, TONIGHT IS THE START OF THE VANCOUVER OLYMPICS!
I am excited to watch the spectacle tonite and in coming days I will be rooting for Apollo Ohno as he follows his quest for Olympic gold. This will be his third outing at the Olympics.
There are a number of San Diegans participating in the Olympics this year. Most notably is The Flying Tomato himself, Shaun White (snowboarding). Included in this illustrious list of local notables is Rachel Flatt (women's figure skating), Elena Meyers (bobsled), Gretchen Bleiler (snowboarding), Jeret Peterson (freestyle skiing), and Tyler Jewell (snowboarding).
Follow along with NBC as they report the latest results.
Good luck everyone and Go Team USA!
