I'm stressed, you're stressed, we're all stressed. I miss the kindergarten days, when the only stress we had came from deciding which crayon to use or whether to play on the swings or do the monkey bars at recess. And one's love life was so simple too: The threat of a kiss was enough to send a boy screaming across the playground. But then you grow up, and everything becomes roughly 3,000 times more complicated than it needs to be. Lucky for us, there's that Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus guy, who somehow has all the answersnot only for relationship questions, but for planetary issues as well. And he's back, Venusites and Martians, with a new book called Why Mars and Venus Collide, which talks about how men and women deal differently with stress. But if reading his book isn't enough, head on over to Barnes & Noble (7700 W. Northwest Highway) at 7 p.m. Thursday and meet John Gray, Ph.D., himself, live and in person.
