HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIMI!
[Legend: 1 – By encoding one’s birth date, one can read through and peruse via INTERNET one’s own horoscope on both the conventional zodiac sign as well as the Chinese zodiac sign. With regard to Vimi, I relied on this website for details on his horoscope, personality and traits as well as advice on health: http://www.thehoroscope.co/birthday-analyser/September-15-1987-horoscope-and-zodiac-sign-meanings3781.html.
2 –Popping is a HIPHOP dance style and one of the original funk styles of dance that is thought to have come from Fresno, California during the 1960s-70s. It is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer’s body, referred to as a pop, tick or a hit. This is done continuously to the rhythm of a song in combination with various movements and poses. Popping is also used as an umbrella term to refer to a group of closely related illusionary dance styles and techniques that are often integrated with popping to create a more varied performance. The term was used here to achieve some kind of RHYME.
3 – The enumeration of traits here in this BLOG was obtained too from the website – http://www.thehoroscope.co/birthday-analyser/September-15-1987-horoscope-and-zodiac-sign-meanings3781.html.
4 – Sans any SIGH would connote a natural and sincere manifestation and/or profession of the traits of COMPETENCY and BROADMINDEDNESS on the part of Vimi.
5 – A problem becoming a NO-BRAINER denotes that of a problem becoming easily SOLVABLE.
6 – DUO is used in this BLOG to mean a PAIR.
7 – EMPATHETIC would connote compassion and generosity and CAUTIOUS as wary and unwilling to take a DANGEROUS RISK. Thus, taken together with respect to the term TILLS which denotes money matters; VIMI is generous in giving while money-wise, in venturing into opportunities and business ventures.
8 – SHIELD would mean something that would tend to drive away someone who would want to deal, inter-relate and/or transact and/or communicate with another. In the case of VIMI, he reflects a perception of a truly congenial and approachable person.
9 – FREDDIE ROACH is an American boxing coach and former professional boxer. Roach is widely regarded as one of the best boxing coaches of all time. He is the enduring boxing coach of the eight-division world champion, our very own Manny Pacquiao.
10 – SKYGAZER is used here to mean an ASTROLOGER or HOROSCOPIST or SOOTHSAYER.
11 – In my earlier FUN RHYME BLOGS, I have usually referred to VIMI as VALIANT VIMI, he being a personification of a courageous, hardworking, gallant, civil and chivalrous fellow.]
