International Women's Day!
Women's day is taken very seriously in Italy. Last night we saw men laden with bunches of mimosa flowers, the traditional gift for this day.

I will get my bunch of mimosa this evening :wink: butI did suggest we drank mimosas instead :lol:

Happy women's day to all female DCers!

Crumbs, that's a brave signature line, YT. The brickbats will be heading your way...

Loved the flour joke, by the way, but I'm easily pleased since I'm running low on sleep.

Happy International Women's Day! It's good to be a woman. :cool:

It is very good and special to be a woman and "Happy International Women's Day."

Yes, I know we moan about our lot sometimes, but really the alternative to being a woman doesn't appeal to me ;)

"Say it with Flowers,,, Give her a Triffid"

Awww, YT! LOL!

Well, here's some for YOU, then! :flowers:


P.S. I had to google "Triffid".

lulu 03-08-2007 01:24 PM

Yeah, I would opt for YT's wholemeal flour personally. ;)

I have never heard of international womans day until I heard it on the news this morning. Hey why not right, we should have a special day devoted to us! :flowers: <----- to all the DC ladies :smile:

It used to be very big deal back in Russia. Here some how it faded away. I guess because of mothers day, but even more so because I try to act toward my women like it is mothers day and International womens' day everyday. :blush:

So, Happy womens Day dear Women!

Would it be appropriate to give ladies a congratulatory smack on the bum?

Better warm up and stretch out- you may need to run for cover to fend off any rightful and justified retaliation. :tongue:

On men's day, I think I will time it just right that the oil light comes on, and will drive around with it dinging all day. LOVE THAT SOUND! It's great when the engine knocks in unison, too!!!

amber 03-08-2007 09:55 PM

I'm telling Marge on you Sushi and Tatt, the woodshed for you two:ermm::lol:

Internation Women's Day is a big holiday here in Kazakhstan. President Nazahrbyov declared that this past Thursday thru Saturday were holidays in honor of it. The men at home and at the work place give them flowers, gifts, lunch and/or dinner out. When I asked the CPA at the office if they had Men's Day, the secretary's translation was , Yes, the other 364 days of the year!
