D9 - Ramadan Riots

Day 9 and I am Starting to get tired now and we’re not even half way through, I miss drinking a coffee in daylight hours, I miss eating something without feeling full straight away, I miss sleeping on an empty stomach (I miss home too), at this stage in Ramadan every girl is wishing for her period and I am no different.

In Algeria, during the month of Ramadan, the number of road accidents, fights and disagreements in general increase, lack of caffeine and nicotine make for (even) more volatile moods, another thing to avoid during Ramadan is supposed to be Anger but as long as they’re not eating or drinking then it’s ok.
The London riots would probably have been blamed on Ramadan if they were in Algeria and would have attributed the anger to the lack of food & drink and lack of patience!

  1. LOL green salad steals the show once again; cracking me up for some reason haahahahahah.

    how's post-breakup heartache btw?

  2. Green salad is the best! though I am dying now! sooo hungry and tired.

    No heartache hon, I am fine, I am a fighter!

  3. somehow green salad is not going down well as being commensurate with you; you're bigger than a green salad :P

    fight the hunger&tiredness lol

  4. Check this out: nmore rioting in Brightn now...


  5. can't see it but is that the duck stealing a packet of crisps?

  6. ducks seagulls same difference :P ... so tell me a funny story

  7. Don't really know stories, although here's a joke for you since we're bored RIGID

    A small boy says to his father "Dad, what's the difference between 'theoretically' and 'realistically'?"
    His dad thinks and then says "Right-o son, go and ask your mother if she'd sleep with Wayne Rooney for a million quid
    The boy toddles off and comes back saying "Dad, dad, she said she would! She would sleep with Wayne Rooney for a million pounds."

    "OK son," says his dad. "Now go and ask your sister the same question."
    The boy toddles off, and comes back saying "Dad, dad, she said she would too!"
    So then his dad says "Right, son, now go and ask your brother if he'd sleep with Wayne Rooney for a million pounds."
    The son comes back excitedly saying "Dad! Dad! He said he would too!"
    "Well there you have it, son," said his dad. Theoretically we could be sitting on three million quid. Realistically we're living with two tarts and a poof."

    Keep continue Dz Chick. I guess Ramadan is a time to think about all suffering people worldwide who are not able to feed and wather themselves both during the day and the night. May God keep you Londoners in a palm of his hand. Ramadan karim from Polish Christian :-)

Don't worry about love life - the right one will come along and this one has just made you more conscious of what you want and what you don't want! this was just a preparation for the better things to come. As for Ramadan, I know it's hard for you guys..dont know how you do it but RESPECT from me to you all. You should def consider writing as more than a hobby..

  14. "....and looking forward to my green salad."

    seriously whaawhwahawhawhwaawouhouhouhouhouh

  15. Thank you Anonymous. appreciate that.

    Daode: what's funny about green salad? it's the main meal for today again you know! lol

  16. you seem to be fixated on it. why is that>

  17. It's colourful, fresh, cold, wet and delicious, high in fibre
    What's not to like!? do you think it's OCD?

    How's you?

  18. it's only got one colour, right? hardly colourful.

    it could well be OCD but linked with what exactly?

    am doing alright, went to the gym yesterday at about 8:30 for 1 hour; obviously i ate something at the break-fast time, the experience was hard & painful but somewhat good at the same time.
