Exclamation The "So You're Saying It's A Party In Your Pants." Thread 06

Hey everyone (or noone as the case may be )

for Mark playing so crap, I only saw a few points on the morning news but it didn't exactly look like he was trying very hard, and for pulling out on Lleyton like that.

and for Kimmie but it seems to be the best option now.

for John Howard - he (or some other politician) also made a fuss about a Play School episode with divorced parents in it that had been shown 7 times before there was a very scathing letter in our paper the other morning! I don't see why people can't just accept that we're all different and should be afforded the same respect I mean, in our chem class last year we had two girls who were going out, a gay guy and a 40-year-old transexual!

for maths-lovers Allan!

As for how I saw HP 3 times - once on Thursday with a huge group of friends, once on the weekend with my mum and a whole heap of kids from the school where she teaches and once with my dad and brothers (plus I got given a whole heap of free tickets that will expire at the end of June!)

Good luck Lleyts tonight!

Re: The "Greeeeen Acres Is The Place To Be!" Thread

Hello everyone!
wow what a great week poor Kim sounds so sad in her diary and the aussie media is ripping into Mark (again)
Harry Potter comes out here tomorrow! but why must it be on a school night when I'm forbidden from going out?
I'm a certified smart-ass now! top of 3 subjects and a piece of paper that proves it yay!
just a random observation-John Keats had a seemingly boring life. He was psychologically screwed from a young age, threw away his medical career, turned to literature, then died. How exciting although, to his credit, some of his poems are actually pretty good

Re: The "Greeeeen Acres Is The Place To Be!" Thread

and then the Aussie media wonders why Lleyton kicks them out of his press conferences. Still, assuming that it was in fact Mark who pulled out of doubles, I'm fairly cranky with him. Lack of practice is not fixed by even less practice.

Hi Ash!

And your comments are interesting too. I'm glad you didn't have to go to the housewife school! On the other hand, I think everyone should learn to cook (mae and female) but not instead of the other stuff.
to cook, iron, use a washing machine, fill in a money transfer, change a tyre (yes i can and proud of it ) in short survive in our civilisation

2 exemples of discrimination dating from 1988

i was refused a 20% pay rise (granted to all employees) on the ground that i was pregnant and therefore would not come back to work (oooooh the nasty 'procès d'intention' ) at the time i couldn't even complain because as there was no collective contract this pay rise was deemed to have been awarded individually.

a collegue of mine ask for 1 week annual leave on the ground that his kid had some kind of infectious disease (don't remember exactly which one) and as his wife was pregnant he wanted to go away with the kid till the he was no longer infectious so that there would be no risk for his wife and the baby. the leave was refused, the guy didn't turn up and was sacked the day he came back for having been absent without permission.

imo there's still room for improvement

Hi Dani,

Sadly I have no trouble believing those tales. They'd both be illegal in my state now, but probably not in the 80s. At least we're making progress. Let's hope the younger women on this board experience less of those examples than those who have gone before It does explain why some of us are perfectly happy to be called feminists!

Re: The "Greeeeen Acres Is The Place To Be!" Thread

PS Yes and I agree everyone should learn those other things too. Some people these days seem to be rich in academic knowledge and totally clueless about anything practical! Women whose idea of changing a tyre is fluttering their eyelids at passersby impress me about as much as blokes who can't iron a shirt

jane

i don't mind being called a feminist (though i know that in some people mouth it's an insult) it's just remind me that my middle name is simone

tenniswise: it's a pity that mark retired, and second according the results on queen's site grosjean already defeated reid - a bit strange since the match was scheduled today at 1 pm local time ????

hopefully Ll keeps focused

Re: The "Greeeeen Acres Is The Place To Be!" Thread

Oh right, cool middle name! Though I always suspected de Beauvoir lost something in translation Our most famous home-grown "libber" is of course the famously insane Greer, although to be fair even she says she wrote most of her books to be devil's advocate and not because she actually agrees with her own more extremist views. takes all types, I suppose!

Yes, I am not Mark's biggest fan today. I expect that kind of quitterism from certain big serving Americans, not from Aussies. How can Grosjean have possibly defeated Reid already? It's only about 10am in the UK, isn't it???? Weird.

Poor old Lleyton. It must be hard to concentrate knowing Kim is waiting to go to hospital. I wonder if he'll visit Bree next week? Probably for a few days at least.

Re: The "Greeeeen Acres Is The Place To Be!" Thread

I think "d" must be a typo for "vs". It's a really dodgy site - elsewhere they profile "Tom Reid" who is apparently a young Aussie up against Grosjean today Plus I can't find a decent scoreboard anywhere

Allan!

I guess then the question is, do you own any cotton shirts that have to be ironed? Because crumpled is not a great look!

Yes, cooking counts.

allan

provided you have iron-free clothes no problemo

i suspect that men are better cook than women since for most of them it's a freely chosen/accepted task

I do have a handful of cotton shirts, but I only wear them once in a blue moon...thankfully, the dress code is quite relaxed where I work....

With my clothes, I kinda just have them in this great big heap on my bedroom floor ... I put them on and hope the wrinkles go away by themselves.

My house is also disgracefully untidy.... books and papers everywhere. So much for stereotypes, huh?
