2013: Could there be a more fitting year?

Year of the Snake

Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. Really? Perhaps that’s a plus because as the 2013 starting line approaches, it spells out a month on the wagon coupled with a January Dukan diet regime.

Year of the Snake

The Chinese horoscope insist this could also be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake will never have a problem with his family starving because he (Ed: or she!) is such a great mediator making them good at business. Boom! Jubilee Communication is entering its second year of business tomorrow.

They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. Probably just as well that crisis management is my chosen vocation in life then.

Or it could mean that a Snake is willing to sacrifice his possessions in order to pay for his family’s food and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth? Unlikely! I own a shiny new set of Callaway RazrX golf clubs and I’m sacrificing them for nobody.

Contemplative and private, the Snake is not outwardly emotional. Ooooh tough blow! For the record I was so petrified I downed several large Pinots and shed a tear or two before making my inaugural Press Golfing Society Captaincy speech.

Snake people are over suspicious, which is their nature. They hide their suspicion and act as if nothing is on their minds. Spot on! Just look no further than the bad reality show that was 2011.

The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. Then perhaps you could explain why sometimes I feel like I’m living in the show that never ends amid a lingering scent of egomaniacal gasbags? (Lawyer: Stop right there Golfmadchick!)

They are stubborn people, exciting and dark at the same time. I can’t pretend I am the woman I was before but since I battle to pronounce the words ‘classic denial’ – I’ll move on.

The Snake is keen, cunning, intelligent and wise. Oh whatever! I’m more of a cat person anyway.

A happy and prosperous new year to all Golfmadchick readers.

  1. Hi GMC, Chinese New Year starts on Feb 4th, and this time around is the year of the Black Snake. How is your golf game ?

    • Happy new year Pete. No golf since November I’m afraid. It’s tragic. But I really do need double digit temperatures to get me out there. A little sunshine wouldn’t go amiss either. I’m a wimp. Official.

      • We also love the sunshine, and in that regard have booked a vacation for this July in Scottsdale, Arizona. Plenty of double digit sunshine there.

      • That’s the spirit. I expect full detailed blow by blow update on your Arizona double digit hols – especially any golf involved. Who know the UK may have even seen a sun by then!!

    • Hey Mags, and a very happy new year to you too. Here have you been? I’ve checked out your site from time to time, but no new humour for months. Hope you’re back. Here’s to 2013…

      • I put a post in my blog today for the first time in 5 months. I started off having a bit of a break from blogging and then my Dad had to have a triple by-pass, he is 81 so you can imagine how worried I was, but all has turned out well, and he is getting better daily.
        I now have a bit more time, so I have been trying to catch up with everyone. 🙂
        It is New Years Day here, and nearly 4am, I was going to bed half an hour ago, but I am definitely going to do now. 😀

      • So glad to hear that Mags. And glad you’re back too. PS: I do love how rest of Aussies are all passed out and you continue burn the midnight oil. Welcome back!!
