Friday 9 November is Diwali, indians no matter where they are in the world will be lighting candles setting off fireworks and spending times with their families.
I am travelling to my parents on Thursday evening and I will help all day in the temple and serve the food.
Diwali or Deepawali's origins are in Hindu mythology and known as the festival of lights. The story is based on the theory that evil comes in the dark and light battles evil spirits.
Diwali therefore usually falls where there is no moon in the sky (new moon).
For Sikhs (I am one)it has other significnces like the release of one of our Gurus from prison.
Over all it is a time where people wish each other well and much prosperity for the new year. I could go on in full detail, but I don't want to bore you.
So in short I am wishing you much joy, happiness and prosperity in the new year.
Peace out :p
How a marriage works
all men should read this.
A newlywed couple had only been married for two weeks. The husband, although very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies .
So, he said to his new wife, 'Honey, I'll be right back.'
'Where are you going, coochy cooh?' asked the wife.
'I'm going to the bar, pretty face. I' m going to have a beer.'
The wife said, 'You want a beer, my love?'
She opened the door to the refrigerator and showed him 25 different kinds of beer brands from 12 different countries: Germany , Holland , Japan , India ,etc.
The husband didn't know what to do, and the only thing that he could think of saying was, 'Yes, lolly pop...but at the bar...you know...they have frozen glasses...'
He didn't get to finish the sentence, because the wife interrupted him by saying,
'You want a frozen glass, puppy face?'
She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she was getting chills just holding it.
The husband, looking a bit pale, said, 'Yes, tootsie roll, but at the Bar they have those hors d'oeuvres that are really delicious... I won't be long, I'll be right back. I promise. OK?'
You want hors d'oeuvres, poochi pooh?' She opened the oven and took out
5 dishes of different hors d'oeuvres: chicken wings, pigs in blankets, mushroom caps, pork strips, etc.
'But my sweet honey... At the bar... You know...there's swearing, dirty words and all that...'
'You want dirty words, Di*khead? Drink your f***ing beer in your Goddamn frozen mug and eat your motherf***ing snacks, because you are Married now, and you aren't f***ing going anywhere! Got it, A**hole?'
........and, they lived happily ever after.
Now, isn't that a sweet story?
Can you believe of all the people on this website I got a request to update my profile from samegame who sent me a wink!! Look my most recent pictures are December 2006. And what a bloody cheek he hasn't even posted his own pic.
And the reason why I reduced the content on my profile is because no guys ever seemed to read them. And if you read my match friend outline you would realise I'm not interested in you because you are too old for me, you are not in the UK, you also smoke. So give up!
I tried to find Amuseme's joke blog but it appears to have disappeared from her list of blogs.
I wanted to share this one:
PENGUIN CAR TROUBLE
A vacationing penguin is
driving through Arizona
and sees that the car's
oil-pressure light is
on. He gets out looking
and sees oil dripping
out of the motor. He
drives slowly and
carefully to the nearest
town and stops at the
first gas station.
After dropping the car
off, the penguin goes
for a walk around town.
he sees an ice cream
shop, and being a
penguin in Arizona,
decides that something
cold would really hit
He gets a big dish of
vanilla ice cream and
sits down to eat. having
no hands, he makes a
real mess trying to eat
with his little
After finishing his ice
cream, he goes back to
the gas station and asks
the mechanic if he's
found the problem.
The mechanic looks up
from the engine and
says, "It looks like
you've blown a seal."
"No, no," the penguin
replies, wiping his
mouth, "it's just ice
Right, is anyone up for a meet and greet weekender in the UK? If so where, when, what sort of activities do people want?
I know it sounds strange but I did a weekend group event at Center Parcs near Longleat, Bath and I had such a good time there. There are plenty of activities there, walking, sailing, tennis, indoor swimming pool, there is even a Spa and its just nice to walk around if you do not fancy any specific activity. We could get chalets and have group chalets I think split as in same sex cabins and I'll leave the subsequent sleeping arrangements to you if there is any chemistry.
It was also very relaxing being surrounded by all those trees and bunny rabbits and ducklings running around in the grass awww!
I think it worked out to be 80.00 quid per head for two days and two nights on chalet sharing self- catering basis. You would have to bring supplies with you. There are restaurant facilities on the Park. I will make enquiries.
If you fancy a more shorter affair we could arrange a drinks evening I was thinking Reading Berkshire or a London Venue.
I have done a music weekender at a Butlin's camp that was quite good fun.
Any polite and helpful suggestions are welcomed and if someone wants to help me organise this even better.
My Gold membership is going to expire at midnight tonight. I'm going to have a break from the subscription and with my money I'm going to try something different. On Tuesday 16 January 2007 I will be embarking on my first dance class. 90 minutes of tripping the light fantastic for the princely sum of ?4.00 per class more bang for my buck, cheaper than weight watchers and at least I'll have a giggle and hopefully make some local friends.
I shall keep you informed of my progress. hopefully i don't have to sew progress badges onto my leotard ( oo what an awful sight, me in a leotard and leg warmers...)
Let's face it people hate us lawyers, so I say bring it on. Tell me all your lawyer jokes, take the mick out of me, I'll take a pop first:-
A solicitor (english lawyer) opened the door of his BMW, when suddenly a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the solicitor was complaining bitterly about the damage to his precious BMW.
"Officer, look what they've done to my Beeeemer!!!" he whined.
"You solicitors are so materialistic you make me sick!" retorted the officer, "You're so worried about your stupid BMW, that you didn't even notice that your arm was ripped off!!"
"Oh my" replied the solicitor, finally noticing the bloody right should where his arm once was " where's my Rolex?!!!!".
I felt compelled to write this blog, because I think there are a few people on this website who do not fully appreciate the variety of functions this site provides.
Clearly there are people like me who know specifically what they want like a life partner, and there are those that are transparent about their needs to get laid and don't care with whom and whatever.
But this site is also an opportunity to create a community of people who are BBWs BHMs and FAs to become friends too.
There are people on this website who participate on it even though they have a partner because they want to share their thoughts with people from this community and make friends with like minded people.
I have made three very good friends on this site, which I wasn't expecting to do and had an awful dating experience with a guy on this site. There are some guys on here that are FAs and are totally genuine about their liking of larger ladies and quite frankly some of them are very handsome indeed. Please don't hate them for participating on this site because they genuinely love us BBWs. One of my friends has received hate mail on this site saying that he doesn't belong and has told me he is going to leave. I'm very disappointed to hear that he has been treated in this way. Whomever ever has done this I hope you feel thoroughly ashamed of yourself/ yourselves.
To show my defiance to the Haters on here and to set a positive example I will remain friends with him even if he leaves and its your loss for not getting to know him.
Haters get with the programme!
She was a nerdy lawyer by day but at fancy dress parties she went as a Saloon Girl from the Wild West, Yee Haa!
Yes I once went to a fancy dress party dressed as a saloon girl in an outfit picked by my (MALE) trainee (or as you would say in the US an Intern). In hindsight I wonder whether it was some freudian thought that he wanted to see me in fishnets, garter, and a bosom enhancing outfit with long satin gloves and ostrich feathers sticking out of my hair....hmmmm oh well can't knock his choice because I won a prize for my outfit from the Chief Executive Officer! I did it for all those BBWs out there.
So I want to know if you have ever been to a fancy dress party and if so, what did you wear?
I really wish you guys would stop sending me half nekked pics of yourselves to me....I want fully nekked shots! (Laughing My A** Off!)
No I'm only joking please keep your clothes on boys unless a specific request is made. I'm a good gal. LOL
This is a celebration blog for all the top totty pics,

Not my cup of tea but nevertheless I can appreciate his form which is why this week he makes it to Totty FA of the week! Three cheers of haze14UK, hip hip hurrah, hip hip hurrah, hip hip hurrah.
Please feel free to add your totty of the week to my blog.
I want people to share their stories of acts of chivalry, either where you were the beneficiary or the benefactor. I say chivalry is very much alive and us women love it.
Most recent acts of which I have benefit. I went to purchase a new rear screen wiper for my car. I bought it paid for it and started to walk out. The guy who served me offered to put it on my vehicle. I said "are you sure its not too much trouble?" he said it wouldn't be it would only take a few seconds. As we walked to the door his colleagues commented "Funny how he never offers to help the guys!"
When I was last in London (you know people that horrible weekend I got dumped at the end of September) well on the tube lugging my wheelie suitcase around everytime I changed lines and had to negotiate some stairs many men offered to carry my case up the stairs. Bless...
This is one for all; do you prefer to be referred to as Sexy or Beautiful/Handsome? Which does your ego prefer?
E.g. If you are approached in a bar and someone says "Hi Sexy" would you be turned off?
Or would you prefer it if they said "you are beautiful / handsome?"
I have lived with many roommates / flatmates/housemates in my time. And I do have some stories...
About 4.5 years ago I was sharing a flat with two guys who were teachers. We all had our own rooms and shared the facilities. One guy who I have renamed Quentin to protect the guilty had a habit that neither I or the other chap knew about.
Quentin liked to sleep in the nude. You may say what's the problem with that...well... nothing really except that he had a sleep walking habit.
On a few occasions in the middle of the night when I needed the bathroom I bumped into him walking around the flat naked...LOL. I never said anything at that time but would in the morning because they say that you shouldn't wake someone up who is sleep walking its very dangerous.
Sometimes he'd be making toast other times he'd be ironing.
Anyone have or had any raffish room mates?
Does anyone have any stories relating to extraordinary friendliness of neighbours?
My experience in 2005 was as I returned from purchasing a newspaper two of my male neighbours were talking on the street. They asked me over for a cup of tea. I thought why not everyone here is so friendly. I walked over and there I was invited to see the renovations inside my neighbour's home. After sitting with a cup of tea my eye began to wander taking in fully the decor. How unusual I thought...bare brick wall...chains... shackles...hang on...most people have a fireplace...before I knew it I was being asked by my neighbour to be chained up and photographed! I made a rather sharp exit.
The funny thing was I told one of my other neighbours what happened and she was most perturbed that she had been living here longer than me and he never asked her! LOL.
