Mind the monkey

It's the Year of the Monkey. 万事如意, may all your wishes come true! Actually I'm hoping this will spell an end to the period of monkey-mindedness framed by the solar and lunar new years. I've been saying "happy new year" to people I haven't seen in a while, then faltering,
since, in China, it wasn't new year yet. (I've probably been spooked about this because in Japan, which aligned its new year with the western one, it was already the Year of the Monkey.) Now we're sorted ... well, as sorted as one can be in the Year of the Monkey! 猴年快乐!
