It's a bit late, sorry. I was doing other things!
Baby! Whee! His name is Naseem. :)
Seriously, babies are gross looking when they come out. All covered in blood and that white gunky stuff. What is that?
The part with Nader just talking to him is so sweet.
*sniffles* Nader whispering the call to prayer to Naseem is so *touching*.
So I read somewhere that the show got started because one of the people on it got the idea and shopped it out to TLC. I will lay even money that that person was Suehaila. (Whose name I always have to double check the spelling on.) Hey, so she's a judicial executive/court clerk! I work with people who have that job.
It's not really only in their community that females who are unmarried are expected to live at home. It's that way around here. It's probably more acceptable around here but it's not the norm.
I have to admit to being surprised that Nina and Suehaila are friends.
It's not just that you don't wear hijab Nina, you dress like a club girl. All the time. I expect to see mob guys surrounding you at all times.
And at least half the women at that table are drinking. I assume that they're all Muslim, given the show. Yes, it bothers me. Shut up. I know I'm being judgy.
Nawal cackles because she doesn't have to fast...:)
For the record, every second of this show with Naseem in it I just go coooooooooo....
blahblah...Nina...yadda...mosque...where's the baby again?
Seriously. Can't stand Nina.
Nina - your wardrobe *is* over the top and it is sexy.
'I don't know what those things are called'...it's an abaya sweetie.
I actually think Nina just has an eye-twitch. She just has this weird look.
Oh, hey, Nina's flirting with the cops. *Married* Nina is flirting with the cops. Judgy Amber is judging...
So, what? The 'Night of Power'? If you pray on this night it makes up all the prayers you've ever missed? Is that true?
Return of Naseem! Cute sleeping baby!
Oh, okay. So they were having night practices while school was out. Now that it's back in they've had to switch back to day practices and still fast. Rough.
Why do guys hang out at high school football practices? Or, no, I think this is just for the show. A set up thing because there's no one else there.
I do feel bad that Nina maybe won't be able to open her club because of family and community reputation and pressure. It's not right that men can own the same sort of business and not get a bad reputation but a woman wants to do it and it's oh, no! Not appropriate! *raspberry* And that's what I think about that.
What's more important? The tenets of your religion or football?
Right. For the record, Mike has lost points with me for putting football before the faith of the players. I'm fairly certain God doesn't give a rats behind about football. But if he commanded a fast then I think he cares about that. Or are there football exemptions in the Qur'an that I missed?
That being said, this game has been kind of a slaughter which is too bad. I wanted Fordson to win.
I want to hug Suehaila right now.
Nawal is very controlling, I think I've said that before? And I can see it giving her trouble with Naseem now. A lot of figuring out what's what and not being able to do everything herself.
I also want to hug Samira.
The guys hanging out and exchanging baby stories is nice.
I really do feel for Suehaila.
Aw, sweetie, if the guys are intimidated by you, they aren't man enough. You'll find someone! *throws self at her through the tv to hug her*
Um. This 'virgin stories' thing that comes on afterward. Uh. She's never seen a penis? That's crazy. Pick up a medical book or a porno. They're not that scary. Actually, they're pretty ugly. Going on looks of the genitalia alone, I would never bother with guys. And that's your 'it's way too late for me to be up' piece of information for the day.
