It's Diwali today and the fireworks are filling the sky over Sparkhill.
lovely asians! bless em.
gurkhas of course.
There were some big bangs at the Argyle game, at the time I thought it was another of Holloways unorthodox tactics but then remembered about Divali, although during the day? I never did find out the cause.
I went to a great Divali fireworks display in Leicester a few years ago.
i wondered why they were going off...i thought it was just the local youth getting antsy...
they fast don't they? i offered this guy in my seminar a polo he said he couldn't because he was fasting...
Ramadan which is an Islamic practise and finishes in 2 days.
right...oops just exposing my global ignorance of religion...oh dear. thanks for that.
finish in two days. so there
and says it's ok to finish.
or, he saw it as a chat up line and decided on a diplomatic response.
maybe...i don't think that people actually use 'would you like a polo?' as a chat up line though really? do they?
to not accept sweets from strangers?
symbolizes something else...
just wrong...i'll never be able to look at polo's in the same way ever again ... :(
is a sick, perverted euphemism. I never knew such a phrase existed until my Irish friend used it. I wonder if it has anything to do with polos?
it's well rude
do you think any of the fierworks are let off by muslims to celebrate this.....what I didnt realise is that they cant even drink water between sunrise an sunset.....seems a bit harsh, specially when Ramadan falls in the hot months with long days
