I'm not the only female on this mailing list, just the mouthiest.  And why
is that?  Because this is the only place where I can pontificate to a bunch
of guys without being interrupted.

In light of what's been said about why cars are female, my car must be male.
Here's why:

1.  it leaves a mess wherever it goes,
2.  it thinks I should spend all my time taking care of it,
3.  it thinks I should spend all my money on it, 
4.  it drinks too much, and
5.  no one can carry on a conversation around it for all the noise it makes.

I could think of lots more, but I'll give your egos a rest. ;-)
