Oh I’m just a girl, guess I’m some kind of freak.

March 8th is International Women’s Day, and with that in mind–Happy International Women’s Day!

According to the official International Women’s Day website, this day “has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.”

In celebration of today, I will be sharing a few of my favorite quotes so far this year from my “Wild Words from Wild Woman” daily calendar that my mom got me as a stocking stuffer for Christmas. She knows me too well. Let the fun begin!

“Your thorns are the best part of you.”  -Marianne Moore

“I used to be a virgin, but I gave it up because there was no money in it.”  -Marsha Warfield

“My take on marriage is this: Why buy the butcher when you can get the sausage for free?”  -Jen Kerwin

“Only time can heal your broken heart, just as only time can heal his broken arms and legs.”  -Miss Piggy

“My husband says he can read me like an open book. The only problem is he doesn’t know what page I’m on.”  -Sydney Newman Dotson

“Sex is still the leading cause of pregnancy.”  -Frederica Matthewes-Green

“It’s great being blonde–with such low expectations it’s easy to impress.”  -Pamela Anderson

“If Joan of Arc could turn the tide of an entire war before her eighteenth birthday, you can get out of bed.”  -E. Jean Carroll

“You never see a man walking down the street with a woman who has a little potbelly and a bald spot.”  -Elayne Boosler

“We have stuntpeople who won’t do what I do.”  -Molly Shannon

“Some of my best friends are books.”  -Doris Lakey

Thank you and goodnight.
