Sweet & Sour Dreams!

Heading off to bed I found this scan of a Denny's place mat I considered appetite killing. I thought you would all enjoy.

Denny's is actually a good restaurant. I can't vouch for their marketing department though.

I remember we went to dinner the night we saw this. I had the T-Bone steak. I'm glad I have a strong stomach when it comes to things I see.

Ahaa! I'm glad you posted this picture, G. As you know, I am fasting right now and this is perfect for keeping me away from even the thought of eating. :p

Glad to be of help! :) At what time does the sun set where you are?

When I plan on eating light or going without food for an extended amount of time, I usually prepare my stomach for it by slowly reducing my intake over a few days. Do you do that or do you stuff yourself before the fasting begins?

I scanned a time table for you. The quality of the scan is bad, but anyway this is what we are using to know when to start and finish fasting each day:

"Sahr" is the time we have to finish eating before (ie before sunrise) and "iftar" is the time when we can eat after (ie after sunset). So yeah, each early morning, we wake up for sahr and eat a full, healthy meal. In other words, I pig out each morning.

I thought sahr was spelled suhoor. I notice Friday is highlighted. Is it because this because it is the day for Jumu'ah prayers or is there another reason relating to Ramadan specifically that it is highlighted?

You roll your "r's" when you pronounce sahr right? That is easy for people who speak Spanish. We roll our "r's" all the time. :)

Nice catch, Hektik. Different people say the word differently. Some pronounce it as suhoor and some (including me) say sehree. Sahr is just another form of the same word. Yup, we do roll the "r" sound.

Friday is the most important day of the week because of, as you said, the prayers.

Man, I really like the fact that you are using the proper terminology. No wait, let me rephrase that. I like the fact that you KNOW the terminology.

I'm sure we can learn new languages much easier than non-spanish or non-urdu/hindi speakers because our mother tongue consists of so much tongue rolling.

That and girls know it makes us better kissers naturally! ;)
