You are the hard-shelled survivor who weeps over lost pen caps.

Maybe those erratic ups and downs of yours are merely chemical, but maybe the explanation lies in your Birthstar, the Buckinghams, and in the ode to unhealthy emotion management that is your Birthsong. Kind Of A Drag was the song that dominated the pop universe at the moment of your birth, and "kind of a drag" is precisely the nonchalant phrase it offered up as a valid emotional response to being cheated on and abandoned by a romantic partner. Now, most of us feel that it's "kind of a drag" when the beer runs out, but gut-wrenchingly painful when someone we love does, and so we simply laugh at the Buckinghams for their go-with-the-flow posing in the early days of the free-love movement. But most of us don't have to deal, as you do, with having been born under the Buckinghams' popstrological influence. For you, their legacy can be felt every time your mood swings, or every time your emotion meter gets stuck inappropriately in one particular setting. Having been lifted to stardom on the strength of their emotional dishonesty, you might think your Birthstar would have bestowed upon you that same dubious gift, but while that's entirely possible, it's even more likely that they're to blame (or thank) for that depth of feeling you can't seem to resist sharing at every possible opportunity.
