If you haven’t heard, some community-college professor in Minnesota who’s trying to make a name for himself says we need to readjust the dates on the zodiac.  

Pay no attention to this man.  He’s an idiot.

According to the REAL zodiac, I’m a Scorpio.  Under the new zodiac, Scorpio only lasts one week, from Nov. 23-29.  (The only mildly intriguing thing about this guy’s suggestion is that my birthday, Oct. 30, is on the cusp of Virgo and Libra, so theoretically I could say I have two signs.)

I went online today and looked up personality traits of the Scorpio.  This I what I came up with:

Mysterious, independent-minded, deep thinker, rebellious, sharp-tongued, passionate, loyal, tenacious, volatile, demanding, secretive, humorous, energetic, self-reliant, resourceful. 

I mean, come on, I ask those of you who know me – if I’m not a Scorpio, who is?


  1. If you're not a Scorpio, the people born between the dates of Nov. 23 and Nov. 29 are. Embrace the Virgo, Phil. Or the Libra. Your choice.

    Also, don't diss community college professors! You may be one someday.

  2. you my friend ARE a scorpio.... and i AM a virgo

  3. AJ, When I am a community college professor, I will write a blog referencing this blog and talking about how I now have to eat crow. It will be a great day if/when that happens.

  4. Mysterious and secretive, Phil? (I never knew!)
