Year of the Tiger Lady!

Well, here's a first.. I'm actually blogging in a bar. Like a champ I spent my entire Saturday working at home & then I came down with a near fatal case of CABIN FEVER! So, I slipped on a skirt, threw my computer in a bag & fled to the closest bar I could find that has wifi. I couldn't be in a better place to celebrate the awesomeness that is THE YEAR OF THE TIGER! Don't even get me started on the fact that Chinese New Year falls on Valentines Day this year! Seriously don't - I'll start speaking in tongues or something and that's never pretty. Sure, I know Chinese New Year isn't until tomorrow, but tomorrow is a mere 15 minutes away at this point.
In the eyes of the Chinese Zodiac I am not a Tiger - I am a Cock, but when I go into my cave to meet my power animal I am greeted by a friendly purring Tiger.
SO - THIS IS MY YEAR! Because I say so - astrology be damned.

I'm feeling oh so brave & while some are saying that year of the tiger + valentines doesn't necessarily call for a love fest but I feel ready to prove them WRONG!
I'm feeling lovey. I'm feeling dovey & generally optimistic on all fronts. I know what you are thinking - 'Bonnie's at the bar having drinks, of course she feels like everything is on the up & up' but you are wrong. I just got here and have only had a sip of my cocktail (which is delicious by the way Tequila + grapefruit soda & a touch of salt, Mmmm).

My world is filled with Tigers & we're all doing a very attractive little happy dance (see above). In the next few weeks you can expect to see a few new Tigerlicious T-shirts in the shop - one even includes a Tiger Shark! We here at Model Citizen do not discriminate against any kind of tiger. Also - since it is the year of the tiger Natalie Slater & I will be holding the first ever America's Next Top Tiger Contest! Where YOU my dear readers can write in and tell us all about your lovely selves for a chance to become the next Tiger Lady on a Model Citizen T! When? I'm not quite sure, I will keep you posted.

Anywho - Lets get back to lovey & dovey - Happy VD Everybody! May your day be filled with hugs & wine & duets in the shower & butterfly kisses & spankings (if that's the kind of thing you might be in to). As for me, I'm going to spend the day with my manpanion. He's got a surprise for me! Exciting! So I leave you with this - one of my favorite love songs of all time!
It has the greatest line ever: Hot n heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ, ain't nothin' please me more than you....

hey! happy tiger-year as the chinese say (DO they??)
you're my first and unique comment and i'm totally excited about it.
i like your writing alot!

how come you don't have weird asian shops over there in texas?
since i can't visit the u.s.a because of a silly but pretty stubborn aviophobia it's always been a magic wonderland to ME.
is it NOT? (does austin (texas) really exist?)

oh questions!

ya know - we do have shops here - there just way outside of my neighborhood and I often forget about them. I need to make a weekend visit up there! Happy Chinese New Year to you too!

Natalie: We're gonna rock this sh*t. I'll send you an email about it after sxsw <3

Oli: I think you are 100% correct!
