    I think seasonal avatars are not for me. It is April and I have FINALLY changed my Christmas avatar!

    It IS true she got us to change our avatars. Why didn't she yell at me though months ago? I had Santa Claus in April.

    I thought maybe it was part of a psychotic episode, and didn't want to push you over the edge. :p

    That would go hand in hand with my decreased presence here.

    Oh, great. Now I need a dictionary to determine what she guessed.

    Besides, you have to admit-- it DID look great around here at Christmas time.

    And I admit to nothing.

    Okay, I admit I might have torn down the avatar sooner had there not been a beach in the background. I like my beach pictures.

    Cza Cza got it. Mrs. C., I would count that but it's not the technical name.

    Now Cza Cza, which gender is it?

    You had a fifty-fifty chance of getting that right and you said you researched and still got it wrong. Nope.

    Males chase the bad spirits away (open mouth).
    Females keep the good spirits in (closed mouth).

    Here's what I found, so it was a crapshoot:

    Gender is variously assigned to the shisa. Some Okinawans believe the male has his mouth closed to keep bad out of the home, while the female has her mouth open to share goodness.[3] Others believe the female has her mouth closed to "keep in the good", while the male has his mouth open to "scare away the bad".[4]

    I see that on Wikipedia now Cza Cza. It is the opposite of what I learned, but I could be confusing it. Next time I go to the store, I will stop and ask. They have it displayed in a lot of shops.

    Didn't you know that technically everyone wins the same medal these days? Shhh... Don't tell the others I shared this big secret with you.
    Red shoes go best with a bigger brain.

    As long as I'm not paying for them...


    This just proves I remember how Alice taught me how to multiquote. My scemata stays a long time. That means I'm staying young.

    I agree--and the reason I'm posting is to see if my snowflakes are still there and nobody told me to change them...

    I'm a little late in the season. Apparently I'm not the only one! At least the snowflakes are WINTER and not a DECEMBER holiday. It's not snowing still I hope!
