Happy Chinese New Year!

Today kicks off the Year of the Monkey, by most accounts a clever, willful and unpredictable creature. My dad tells me that in some places people even made offerings to the Monkey King, a spell-casting simian in Journey to the West. Although he's cast as the sidekick -- the putative hero is a monk whom the Monkey King is compelled to protect -- anyone will tell you that the monkey steals the show. :)
