Hubby and I recently watched the movie The Silence Of The Lambs. I hadn’t seen it since it came out in 1990, and Hubby had never seen it.
It totally freaked me out to find out that the actor who played the serial killer:
is the same actor who played Captain Leland Stottlemeyer on TV’s Monk!
Wow. I still can’t get over that.
More work BTS tomorrow…
I am a Capricorn. You know, when people say “What’s your sign?”.
Do people still say “What’s your sign?”?
If they did, that’s what I would tell them.
I’ve always been pretty content about being a Capricorn. You know, a goat.
I’ve always liked goats. In fact, I once had a goat. His name was Todd. But that’s a story for another day. By the way, this is not a picture of Todd. I’ll have to dig one up. This is a goat from a goat-feeding-facility-animal-petting-place that hubby and I visited years ago. This goat is begging for another kibble of goat food that hubby has.
I digress. Some of my traits as a Capricorn are rumored to be:
Practical and Prudent
Ambitious and Disciplined
Patient and Careful
Humorous and Reserved
Pessimistic and Fatalistic
Miserly and Grudging
(Well, mostly good stuff…)
The problem is, I started thinking. I was born 3 months premature. Here I was, way back then in my incubator:
So, instead of being a Capricorn, it may be that I was supposed to be an Aries (a ram).
Then, my traits would be:
Adventurous and Energetic
Pioneering and Courageous
Enthusiastic and Confident
Dynamic and Quick-Witted
Selfish and Quick-Tempered
Impulsive and Impatient
Foolhardy and Daredevil
I don’t know. Does that sound more like me?
To make matters even worse, there’s recently been headlines in the news about a 13th sign being added to the astrological signs of the Zodiac – the Zodiac would now be:

Are you totally confused yet?
And, what if you were born premature, like I was? If you thought you were Capricorn, but maybe are really Aries. But, now that they say they’ve added a sign, instead of Aries, you’re now Pisces (a fish)?
Imaginative and Sensative
Compassionate and Kind
Selfless and Unworldly
Intuitive and Sympathetic
Escapist and Idealistic
Secretive and Vague
Weak-willed and Easily led
Yikes. My head is spinning. I think I’m going to go back to bed and mull this over. Do I want to be a fish?
Of course, no offense to all of the fish out there – they are awfully cute!
