Yay, I totally forgot....darn it. It's not that big back home, chicks get flowers. My friends from Ukraine told me, it is humongous there, big gifts and all, bigger than bdays

So, to all women out there...!

Re: 100th anniversary of International Women's Day today

My wife is celebrating by unpacking all the stuff for the kitchen.

She's going to be spending a lot of time in there over the next few years, so she'll want it nice, won't she?

There's only one thing worse than a male chauvanist, and that's a woman who doesn't know her place.
