    You're quite right! It means 'a sheep'. Unlike English, the plural of 'овца' is овцы in Russian.

    It's not necesserally for women, mind that! Sometimes it truely used to insult a male person! Especially with adding some more colourful adjectives.

    I guess that both Russian and English can have the whole zoo in the stock just to call someone an infuriating name.

    Didn't understand your word.

    Watches... Books are much better. Movies are almost rubbish. However I looked only Night Watch.

    no problems man . By the way your last sentence would be . "however I have only watched night watch" Use watched rather than looked , watch is more a term you use for real time when things are moving ..u know things that happen instantly ...where look is more for things that are standing still ...that happen in an instant..... example u can look at a tv ......but u watch programs on tv .....you see what i mean
