  1. Oh great. I used to be a fish; now I’m a water-boy. I suppose that’s some sort of progress …

    I’ll postpone my celebration until I’m starting quarterback.

    If you get kicked out of your astrological sign, should you feel like you’ve been demoted? Or is it like not getting picked for the school play? Are you supposed to have a personality shift so you’re a better member of your new group? I think this will be very difficult for a lot of people.

    I don’t personally believe in astrology, but skepticism is a common trait of Libras.

  3. You can probably alleviate some of your skepticism at the library.

    Thanks, no. My mind is made up. I’m not interested in being confused by facts.

  5. I hear that.

    Thank goodness I’m a Leo now. I was sick of being a Virgo. Of course, in Korean astrology, I’m still a rooster. Or COCK, as the paper place mats in the Chinese restaurants like to say.

  7. Is this thread turning into a pissing contest?

    A cock? I thought that was an owl. Maybe it’s just a cock that stays up all night.

  10. “… stays up all night.”

    Yup; it’s a pissing contest.

    Wishful thinking, Peter?

    I checked Malcolm (thanks for Bastardi incidentally) the changes are only sed for Eastern (or Sidereal) astrology enthusiasts – for Western astrology, the signs remain the same.

    But this shouldn’t be taken as a downer for those whose Western outlook for the day looks like a perfect excuse to stay in bed (unless staying in bed is the rosiest of outlooks) just skip over to the Sideral methodology. Personally I’d suggest, believe whichever promises the better chance of buying the winning lottery ticket.

    Either way, my bet is, each probably works better than the rhythm method.

    Henry: of course not. I have an unusually large penis. (Thick, too.) This magnificent apparatus does not have “no mas” in its vocabulary. In addition, I can lick my eyebrows. This combination of attributes enables me to drive women to levels of ecstasy unparalleled in the history of womanhood.

    Let’s just say that although I went to school at Amherst, my varsity sweatshirt has a big F on the front.

  16. Sounds like TheBigPeter does most of your thinking, too.

    Oh dear TheBigHenry, sounds like you’re becoming enamored.

    I guess such a described Peter can do that. But, back in the olden days of yore when I was beseeching “Lovely Laura” a blog was unheard of and “the ‘Net was only a metaphor.”

    Fortunately for me, the ‘Net of electronics wasn’t a metaphor – unfortunately for her “the ‘Net of unsecured collateralerlyzed mortgage derivatives” was.

    Dear Gawd, had I then been able to tongue-slick my eyebrows, Lovely Laura and the Nation needn’t have gone through this.

    Why oh why hadn’t anyone noticed Peter had been switched at birth from a Libra to a Scipio?

  18. I’m no expert, JK, but I think “Scorpio” makes more sense in this context. Scipio was a leader of men.

    Why was I switched at birth? A question best answered by my parents, Jor-El and Lara.

    Tough crowd here tonight. How are you folks all doing? Anybody from out of town?

    No, TheBigHenry, the “Scipio” was intentional. Widen your horizons and read some biography not contained in Wikipedia.
