    since nobody has mentioned it by now, today is the international women's day, so get your girl a flower or something. I myself might not get away with romantic pizza + romantic coke this time :|

    P.S.
    this should concern not only the vast ~1% of NBR that has GFs/wives, LOL, but hey dont forget the moms as I'm sure they got enough of you long time ago. Cheers.

    Jenn Siebel Newsom had a good TED talk I happened to listen to on the way to work today. Interesting. I agree with a lot of it except the part about blaming men. Some of the greatest offenders of perpetuating a certain image of women, are women. Notoriously, Helen Gurley Brown - Cosmopolitan

    Wow, my day makes sense now.

    First, I clicked on the Google logo thing and it tells me it's International Women's Day.

    Next, I went to play frisbee at the normal field and nobody was there.

    Finally, I went to Wal-Mart and noticed a few people buying flowers.

    Never heard of it. Neither has my gf. I am off the hook yay!

    Mom has never nagged me about it either...
    Believe me, if I forgot about it, and it was special to her, I would not ever stop hearing about missing it even once.

    Sounds like a hallmark holiday to me...

    That or its one of those holidays where women do not want anything to do with men. /shrug

    This is the first I've ever heard of it in my 97 years of life... I believe it is not even a Hallmark holiday, or a holiday at all. It is but an anniversary of an event that many people know little about, at least in America.

    I never knew it existed or that you were supposed to do or get something for your SO until my girlfriend was pissed off that I didn't do anything and explaining what her dad always got her and her mom on this day. Ugh.
