Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the year of the horse. I had to check online to see what exactly the Year of the Horse means. (I really should find out why ever time I say “year of the horse,” I think of this song.) Lucky for me, I found out what the coming year will bringApparently, as someone born during the Year of the Horse, I need to lay low. That is always doable in my book. 

As always, The Skim is a curated weekly round-up of links, podcasts, videos, and/or books. Since yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday (and Puppy Bowl and Groundhog Day), I’m casting the finds as winners and losers.

Winners: all the romantic movies coming out this year, good news about my dry spell (I’m not alone at all!), taking a sabbatical (unlike my sad-battical last year)
Losers: Whoever lost the SuperBowl, Valentines Day (hi haters), working too much (although MJ has an awesome song about working day and night), having bad lovers who don’t know you are in your sexual primetime, working too much
