I'm a Leo in the Western, and a Tiger in the Chinese zodiac. Of course, I recognise some of the qualities either horoscope ascribes to these signs as being in my own makeup, but I'm not entirely convinced that it's because I am a Leo or a Tiger, or simply just a human being. Having said that, I do like having these majestic cats as my totems, if you will.

In other news, I've signed up for a refresher driving course. I've held my license for some 15 or 16 years now, but have had very little practice at actually driving since my car got stolen back in 1997. My past employers actively encouraged people to come in by public transport, and so I decided I had no need for a replacement with its concommitant headaches of taxes, insurance and the ever rising cost of petrol, not to mention those of congestion and the difficulty in finding parking spaces, and so I've only driven sporadically since then. The last time I can remember having been at the wheel of a car was in October 2003.

However, in my next job, I will have to visit with resellers, distributors and call and repair centres, and so it seems like a good idea for me to build up my confidence and diminish my chances of totalling the company car on my first day by taking a few (or as many as may be required) lessons. I do hope my instructor will be kind and patient, because really, I think I will need instruction on the basics as well as on the manoeuvres again.

I think it's a wise move, the driving lessons. But I also think you'll be surprised about how your muscles remember even if you don't. :)

Actually, I'm kind of banking on that muscle memory-thing to keep me from stalling from the off...;-)

Lions and tigers and bears....oh my!
I do like having these majestic cats as my totems

You're just one animal away from being a refrain in the Wizard of Oz! Wonder if there's a cosmology out there in which you would be ursine....

Re: Lions and tigers and bears....oh my!
Oooh, I love bears, me...as long as they're small and cuddly, and preferably filled with sawdust ;-)

Good luck with the refresher course! I think it's a good idea to remind oneself how to drive.

It seemed like a wonderful idea late last night -- now that I've actually got an appointment for Wednesday morning, it's starting to become more of a scary one!

Good luck with the driving lessons! You'll pick it back up in a snap.

I guess I'll know tomorrow!
