One Random Friday

So, it's been a while. I could make excuses about how I've been WAY too busy to post anything. But no. My randomness is being depleted. There is something about being in the workforce (sounds pretty cool, eh?) that slowly drains the creative energy out of you.

But don't be sad, I have some random pictures to entertain you (maybe).

So last Friday I came across this magnetic poetry thing in a bookstore, and I stood there for a couple of minutes putting together a poem. It was kind of cool.


I also went to Friday prayers that same day, and happened upon this:

Because HEAVEN FORBID the males and females use the same stairwell!! Like, Astaghfirullah.

Then this shortly thereafter:

Not sure what to make of this when I say the phrase "halal meat," it'll never be the same :(

Anonymous, are you on drugs? I laughed out loud when I read your comment. You're "anonymous" on a public blog and want to know where I work. This tickles my funny bone.

Asmaa said...

Hahaha. no.

"When a woman walks up the stairs the brother may be distracted," is actually what I was once told when I asked about this once. I think we should give the Muslim men more credit than this.

Halal meat - I think the advert is for a Arab gay event (the rainbow flag)... halal meat.. ouch!

Assalaamu Alaikum :)
