I like Boris Becker the best. Smile

Roddick could win it only if the organisators let him play in the boys tournament.

Hahaha. Roddick is, like, my LEAST favourite. He's such a weed, always looks like he's about to cry.. Yuck!

RIGHT, y'know how Murray's playing tomorrow? That means... he can't be playing Thursday, right? It'll be Mon, Wed, Fri, etc.? HEARTBROKEN! (I've got Thur tickets.)

Although I'm guessing it means I'll see Federer. P-h-w-o-a-r! xx

Ah, I love Eurovision! The trash, the booze, the glitz, the Germans... So excited about Eurovision party next weekend! However, I've realised that, having hounded guests about forfeits for those who don't come in fancy dress, it's actually really HARD!?

So I throw myself at your mercy, tennis heads!  wub Any ideas for a Eurovision fancy dress outfit, on a limited budget...?

(Please note we'll be hitting the town after the main event, so nothing I'll get killed in, please!) xx

Joely, I hear you too.  But, men and women are inherently and biologically different.  I like to think of gender inequality as gender differences.  Don't get me wrong, I'm no simpering wimp, but I do accept the differences, and I really believe those differences are not something any of us can do anything about.

So what would be your ideal relationship with a man?

Super-sized portions of respect but also very respectfully I disagree. The notion of 'innate differences' between the sexes has been and is used not to accurately and scientifically chart the human condition, but to exclude women from the public sphere and to seek to legitimate sexual inequality.

The ideal relationship would be lots of sex (NO bottom-slapping) and lots of finding fault with the world?! Hehehe.

No point romanticising the truth, sorry.

That was not the truth; it was a depressing and glib snapshot of the world, taken on a Polaroid, in bad light, through a dirty window!

Mais oui. This made me remember I meant to shave my legs. ****. I got talking feminism in Chit Chat... Wink

Joely, sorry to burst your idealistic bubble but in this regard, life is and always will be sexist and that's fine because it's the way we are wired.

Men will place physical attraction above most things when it comes to women.

And for women will naturally be attractive to status, power, money.


That's the worst thing I've heard all day. And I've seen various news reports from Libya. They weren't as devoid of hope!

Hazy: you're so lovely for seeing the positive. I should have added that he selected the 'gift' because she had put a bit of weight on. Now, I'm not saying that that's every man. But it's a man! In the world, going about his business, now perpetuating the idea to other women that they exist primarily to service male sexuality...!

Elly: I hear you. I like a frisson myself - although I suspect I like it cos I was conditioned to like it? I don't actually spend my daily life spoiling Moments by pointing out gender inequality. But I really think it's there - everywhere! And it makes me mad!

I can see the silliness of getting a bit 'Germaine' on your asses alongside my gorgeous bikini'd glamour shot...

I'd much prefer a man bought me lingerie than a vacuum cleaner or a food mixer.

Urr hurhur. It wouldn't be soups and smoothies being blended in that mixer. Something far dearer to him should be getting intimately acquainted with that blade.

I dunno, call me old-fashioned but I think it's sexist. We are not mannequins to be decorated to arouse menfolk! Although, of course, I wear makeup and clothes that aren't made of sacking and won't even try to pretend that "I do that for myself".

My friend's (now ex- !) boyfriend bought her a gym membership for Valentine's Day. LOL AAAAAARGH!

If a man bought me lingerie, I would beat him to death with an International Women's Day booklet.

Oh! Why stop there?! Why not just give me a garter belt, a black eye and an eating disorder while you're at it?!

Grapes. Before that I ate veggie sausages with garlic mash and broccoli. Om nom nom.

Recovering, having cooked dinner for boyf and I. Feeling sad that my sister is away at uni / feeling happy that my sister will be home next weekend. Considering shaving and moisturising legs, having changed bedding today (it's the simple things). Watching Frasier. Daydreaming.

Ohhh, I can't cope with that pseudo-formal way people talk when a TV camera is pointed at them.

Me --> myself
You --> yourself
House --> property,
etc.

It's called Police Speak in my house...
