Happy New Year!

The Lunar New Year was Thursday -- this year is the year of the rat. We had wanted to take a photo of CJ next to one of those really big inflated rats by a union picket. But perhaps as a token of better labor-management relations citywide, we were unable to find one.

So instead we have a photo of CJ showing off her New Year's loot.

Chinese custom is to give kids a little red envelope with money, the more 8s in the serial number the better, as 8 is a lucky number.

Special thanks to Louise, who had no idea how lucky her cash was until I rifled through her wallet.
