    Happy Lunar New Year to you, too!

    Kathleen, who kept an entire colony of rats as a combination of psych experiment and pets (before I knew her) says that you’re right about rats, and that’s why they make good pets.

    It occurs to me that, although I saw you both baptised and confirmed, I don’t know your natal year, your lunar sign, or your birthday.
