Have any men here ever had a PM saying "OMG, I didn't realise you were a bloke!" I doubt it,

However, if it transpired that (say) miss piggy or witchhazel turned out to actually be male, then maybe that might happen. Smile I'm almost tempted to re-register as SexyCurvyRoxanne to see if I can obtain that very PM. (But of course I wouldn't really do anything against forum rules Mr SP sir, oh no!)

I recognised him too Smile I'm not a sci-fi/fantasy person, but I love Terry Pratchett.

(Very definitely male, btw, as I thought the name would give away (yes, I have no imagination Embarassed, so the first time I registered for a site like this - it was Puzzle Donkey - I just boringly used my real name, and then proceeded to chatter so much that it would have confused anyone had I changed moniker at a later point Embarassed ...) I only mention, because I have had people on PD who seemed to assume I was female Confused And at times I definitely feel in the minority among puzzlers, so I don't know what you girls are complaining about Laughing )

That's because we men are out at work all day, and the girls have so much more time on their hands. Laughing Wink

Not true, being the mother of 5 I work harder now than I did when I had a job outside the home Thumbs Up ...raising children is the MOST taxing and difficult job because there is no coffee break...

Have you ever tried teaching? There is no other job that has so much extra work involved beyond the obvious bits. Especially as this is only my third year - so there are still some things I've never taught and so have to prepare from scratch. Admittedly the holidays are awesome, but there has to be some compensation for this job, and it certainly isn't the pay.

PS: I recognised the death of rats too - love Terry Pratchett's books. Although admittedly that beacause I read all science fantasy books.

PPS: Very definately female by the way, but have had the "I thought you were male" pm in the past, hence why I started signing my posts with my real name.

or maybe it's because females are adept at multi-tasking so our time stretches twice as far or there again it could be to do with IQ levels Laughing

This has certainly not been posted by the ragdoll Angelic

AMEN Clare and Angie!!! As someone who has been a teacher and is now a full-time Stay-at-home mom to two children under 6, I can honestly say that I have never worked harder. (Except maybe the 7 years that I helped run a summer travel camp for teens which combined the 24 hours/day duty with the responsibilities of supervising 20-56 children at a time.) The summers in college that I worked up to 48 hours per week doing manual factory labor on swing shifts and the days of working 2-3 jobs while attending grad school don't compare. Nor do the days I was a program administrator in a stressful program, becasue while some of the stress followed me home, it did not need to be fed, bathed and comforted in the middle of the night.

I 'only' have one son but I brought him up, was working half days as well, and then did all the homework, cooking, cleaning, ironing, etc. It never occured to me that my husband should be helping. LOL That was some years ago though. Nowadays, I would insist on a little help. In those days, I just did it all. So... hurray for us women!! Thumbs Up

I just wondered why several people have been so surprised that I was one.

Glad it's not just me. Laughing

Why do I do this to myself?
