Now Easily Translated Woman Speak (Ouch)

Boffin1157 - Blogs 4 You

Ok Guys, ever wondered what your better half is actually saying to you, is / was she actually saying anything? Some of your major doubts can now be decoded for peace-of-mind.

Starting with...

We'll talk about this later - Means - You can, but I'm not going to
 then there are these 9 Beauties as well.

Nine other words that women use...

Fine This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more Minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing Usually end in fine.

Go Ahead This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

Loud Sigh This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

That's Okay This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks  A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome.

Whatever  Is a women's way of saying F...k you!

Don't worry about it, I got it  Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's
wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3...

Others as well, but the hovering rolling pin is censoring the rest for now.

Mothers Day in the States

Boffin1157 - Blogs 4 You

Mother's Day in the United States was first proclaimed in 1870 in Boston by
Julia Ward Howe's Mother's Day Proclamation, and Howe called for it
to be observed each year nationally in 1872. As originally envisioned,
 Howe's "Mother's Day" was a call for pacifism and disarmament by women.
The original Mother's Day Proclamation was as follows:

Arise then...women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!
Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!

Say firmly:

"We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage,
For caresses and applause.
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.

We, the women of one country,
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."
From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with

Our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice."
Blood does not wipe out dishonour,
Nor violence indicate possession.

As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
At the summons of war,
Let women now leave all that may be left of home
For a great and earnest day of counsel.

Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
Whereby the great human family can live in peace...
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,

But of God -
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
That a general congress of women without limit of nationality,
May be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient
And the earliest period consistent with its objects,
To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,
The amicable settlement of international questions,
The great and general interests of peace.

Early "Mother's Day" was mostly marked by women's peace groups. A
common early activity was the meeting of groups of mothers whose sons had
fought or died on opposite sides of the American Civil War ...

In 1907, Mother's Day was first celebrated in a small, private way
by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia, to commemorate the anniversary
of her mother's death two years earlier on 9 May 1905.
Jarvis's mother, also named Anna Jarvis, had been active in Mother's Day campaigns for peace
and worker's safety and health. The younger Jarvis launched a quest to get
wider recognition of Mother's Day.

The celebration organized by Jarvis on 10 May 1908 involved 407 children with their mothers
at the Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton (this church is now the International Mother's Day Shrine).
Grafton is, thus, the place recognized as the birthplace of Mother's Day.

As the custom of Mother's Day spread, the emphasis shifted from the
pacifism and reform movements to a general appreciation of mothers.
The first official recognition of the holiday was by West Virginia in
1910. A proclamation designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day
was signed by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson on 14 May 1914.

Being British - Are We Really Crazy?

Boffin1157 - Blogs 4 You

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

Are we really as CrAzY as this, or is the rest of the World ashamed or afraid to admit they do like we does?

After all, we form 'orderly queues of 1' when waiting for something (no idea what though). Walk under ladders to prove we are not superstitious (touch wood). Spend hours in traffic jams for what should be a 5 minute walk... etc etc etc

Did I forget to mention the Weather?
Whoops its a natural topic for discussion as well

And so...

Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

The most British thing of all? Suspicion of all things foreign!

Only in Britain can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in Britain do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.

Only in Britain do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.

Only in Britain do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in Britain do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

Only in Britain are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.


3 Brits die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.

142 Brits were injured in 1999 by not removing all pinsfrom new shirts.

58 Brits are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.

31 Brits have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.

19 Brits have died in the last 3 years believing that Christmas decorations were chocolate.

British Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after Xmas cracker-pulling accidents.

18 Brits had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth.

A massive 543 Brits were admitted to A&E; in the last two years after trying to open bottles of beer with their teeth.

5 Brits were injured last year in accidents involving out-of-control Scalextric cars.

and finally...

In the year 2000 eight Brits were admitted to hospital with fractured skulls incurred whilst throwing up into the toilet.

If you're proud to be British, send this on!
