Good Theory

In villages in Pakistan, a prospective bridegroom is brought before relatives of the bride, who insult him with every known invective. The theory is that, if he can take that,he has nothing to fear from what the bride will say later.

I find that hard to believe in Pakistan of all places. They must have some very dominant women.

Flamingoliya said...

Yeah me too. I like this kind of test though. It's like when you offer an ash tray to see if one smokes or not.

W. said...

mmmmm

i like lipstick prints on ciggies...like when they leave perfect prints 'n not smudged ones... very nice....

Flamingoliya said...

you're obsessed dear W. ;)
what about prints on mugs?

W. said...

Those are nice too..

but let us take a closer look at the prints around a ciggie...notice how the print becomes endless...

Someone should bring a camera take a picture of it up close.. maybe I should

What a great test to look forward to...I get insulted by the family and if I pass the test...My wife treats me like garbage for all eternity...



How nice!!

I hope I get married before this becomes fashionable in Q8.

Flamingoliya said...

W., do that. Show me how it looks :)


Misguided,
Yeah hurry up before it’s too late. Oo congratulations for your increased traffic. Maybe I should post about that kid too. I am saying this here cause your blog takes a loooooooooooooooong time loading especially when posting a comment. So please do something about that. Maybe it’s something related with your side links?

I am a crap photogapher (lel asaf elshdadeed) but I develope black and white pictures...

madri wesh elfaydah though LOL

minime said...

W.,
re-your photography point (le-lasaf el shadeed), if interested, plz check out the post named "painting with light" on my blog.. I hope you find it of use :-)

W. said...

la gasdi wsh faydat developing and printing bdon ma a3arf a9awwer :
I took a basic photography class when I was in college and I seriously sucked in it... by the end of the semester, they voted me 'most improved" I took pictures of the "obvious" ma3 inni I paint and sketch a lot. But I donno why,, I still can't get the whole shutter/apriture (spelling??) thing and sometimes I don't even bother. Like lets say we had to go somewhere and take pictures, EVERYONE else ended up with weird 'n abstract pictures of like cars movements or some stop motion heebie jeebie stuff and I ended up with a lousy picture of a guy who i THEN realised kan ga3ed "yraggim"

Naturally, I didn't display the picture and had to go to backyard and take pictures of "cracks" for my "Cracks in my Garden" theme (final project)

I ended up with a C-. (t7eb yadha wajh o thahr)

Dear Misguided,
Thank you for awarding me with the subscription and post. I really appreciate that. I still wanted to say this on your blog, but unfortunately it still loads slow :(
Since you insist on posting about the radio or video or whatever is there on the side bar (I can see nothing there except a real player logo btw) I don't even have an idea about that dancing boy you're talking about. So my suggestion is to write a post about a video lets say. And then in the comment area you can add the link. Now how about that? Aren't I smart? That will make it easier for a lazy blogger like me, with slow internet connection.


W.,
Wow! You can develop pictures?! That's great. Even when they are only black and white. It is still great. I can visualize you like the actors in old movies. Wanasa. Please show us some of your pics. I'd love to see the guy who was eraqqim.

W. and Brachypelma,
I'm interested in photography too. Maybe we can form (living photographers' society). I got that from the movie (dead poets society)
:D

W. said...

LOOOL they seriously SERIOUSLY sucked...

I wouldn't mind painting (watercolors) or sketching..

Havent done that in a WHILE...;( I miss it terribley

minime said...

W., loved the bit where you said you wanted to take his pic & he wanted you to take his ragam..lol..or at least this is how my duuuh brain understood.
Phototeam sounds fun, but who will be the modeer?

Flamingoliya said...

W.,
Oh well, if you find anything interesting to show us, do that :)

Brachypelma,
You will be the modeer cause you seem to be the expert here.

minime said...

Shookrran 3ala theqatakom,

W. said...

Flamingoliya said...

Brachy, so you're not scared anymore?

W., does that mean you approve Brachy to be our boss now?

W. said...

sure thing!

Flamingoliya said...

good. now lets see what brachy has to say.

minime said...

brachy is deeply & sincerely touched :-)

bass after the last couple of site updates (images & stuff) I did, I am sure you sweet & dear staff of mine think of me as a right screw loose, twisted brain, long fanged weirdo mudeer, so I think I'll be getting the slip soon if not already have.. he.he

la bass sara7ah, ana moo creepy, bass showaya nature lover & environmentally friendly & educating my puppy son to follow suit :-)

W. said...

No snakes or spiders please...

i dont mind my little ponys and carebears and stuffed fat cows and piggies..but certainly NO 8 legged hairy poisonous creatures that kill their mates after sex (although I highly respect that in them, but none the less)

انا اذا شفتهم علئ التلفزيون كشكش جلدي!! يما منهم

Flamingoliya said...

Brachy,
being a nature lover & an environmentally friendly person are the basic requirments for a photographer. or else, what would you photo then?

W.,
LOL at creatures that kill their mates :D
i like that too, but hey! masaddagna Brachy feels safe around us, don't scare him away again :p

as for me, i accept all creatures except roaches, my eternal enemies.

minime said...

Oh. Respect for wives who consider hubby edible, not as a figure of speech. But Literally.

W. budd, please look up this fella on google/images if you have not heard of yet.

Praying mantis.

Spiders are cleverer. When El-me3res approaches el-3aroos, he keeps to very good tactics that spares him his life most often however, in the case of the praying mantis, el ahabl just goes for it & while in the process of copulation, she turns around and begin to consume his head. La wil a7la, innah elmiskeen continues to perform his wjibatah elzawjiyah while headless :-(.. poor sod.

Flamingoliya said...

LOOOOOL
abi Praying mantis, wanasa.
i saw that in a Hugh Grant movie, but thought it was just an act!

W. said...

I had a nightmare!!!!

كله منكم :(

I'm kidding, I did have a nightmare but it had nothing to do with Miss "I feel like eating my husband's head after sex"

Flamingoliya said...

hehe wait till you hear my next horror story :p

minime said...

Waiting...........................

minime said...

oh & W., its not after,,, its during..lol

Flamingoliya said...

Brachy, i can't imajine it. is there a video for that?

minime said...

yes dear.
A BBC documentary, quite a fascinating one too if I may add.
I'll let you know if I ever get one....o..actually i think i might have it, plz give me some time to find out.
But I'd love to see a video on (how to help Brachypelma post on flamigolya site). :-(

Flamingoliya said...
