I think "Mourning and mourning colors are ahreman" is a very strong statement that you are making. Through out the history people have been showing their grief or mourning with sad music, poetry, and color... and nothing is wrong with it... It shouldn’t call ahreman...
Koroush is correct, Omid. So much turkey will give you a tryptophan overdose and that is the amino acid precursor of serotonin, the amino acid targeted in pharmaceutical anti-depressants. So basically you should be feeling pretty good these days but also lethargic (seratonin makes you sleepy and that's why people often fall asleep after a Thranksgiving dinner and also why some anti-depressants make people sleep as much as 16 hours a day). Yes, in other words, turkey makes you happy and lazy. And maybe that's why you wish Benazir had pursued a live and let live, no more martyrs choice. You feel happy imagining the modest joys of her still being alive, a grandmother perhaps, crocheting woolies on Fifth Avenue, and also you feel too lazy to bother risking death. :D
So much for turkey. Now, on to chicken. You may have noted that if you unregister yourself you will now become according to our Fearless Leader a chicken. And as I have previously stated publicly, he knows chicken first hand, that one does. So my advice to you is as long as you remain registered, you can probably eat all the chicken you want without becoming one, and also without suffering the negative affects of turkey--being either too happy or too lazy to deal with major existential questions. (Or their positive effects , depending on your point of view).
And finally as noted (again by Koroush) Ayatollah Ruhollah did offer specific recommendations on eating chickens after coitus with them--recommendations which I believe we should all follow scrupulously.

Which one of the two is a hotter Chilli in instigating hot ferver amongst large body of hotty hot masses alredy high on hot spice? Khomeini or Rushdie?
share carnal knowledge with your [na shoma, shomaee noee] jenabeh or doushezeh boghalamoun , as long as jenabeh or doushezeh boghalamoun was not sexually, physically and psychologically abused by you or any members of your family before the act(s). This means you must procure the full consent of jenabeh or doushezeh boughalamoun. Jenabeh or doushezeh boghalamoun must be told that after these act(s) he or she will be given water and food before his or her neck departs his or her body forever. This consent must be given knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily. This matter has already been debated by great muslim scholars of our beloved land. I realize that this may be a new take on khomeni's directives on sex with animals, but since his death there have been a few modifications in order to be more eco-friendly. No sense in wasting good meat!
I should note that if jenabeh or doushezeh boghalamoun glances back and utters the following words you may have to engage in three rakats of namazeh Boghalamoun and at least five ghosl before you commence, to wit:
- Boss bedeh, boss bedeh
- Bebakhashed poshtam be shomast
Now, go forward and enjoy your trypthopan.
The Hot Spice has no understanding of good green fiber as part of the loving creatures' daily diet. But it is natural nobody goes to the deep in search of good diet because of one major hurdle: Sheer Laziness...

Very interesting dietary analysis. I have been eating left-over turkey meat since Thanksgiving Day. We had a fifteen-pound turkey for three adults and two children. That day, at the most we ate was about three pounds of meat. I must have taken twelve pounds of meat, bone, and skin home to feed on for the next several days. The first couple of days was easy, cold turkey sandwiches for lunch and dinner, but that only got rid of one pound of meat.
I had to be creative from then on. I made some aash (soup) with turkey meat, and ate a couple of more turkey sandwiches with turkey soup for the next couple of days. For breakfast I ate haleem with turkey meat, then I baked some blue berry muffins with turkey meat. But, at least I had another eight pounds of turkey left. I needed to be more creative than that.
When Brigade General Francois Hajj was assassinated in Beirut I made some ghormeh zabzi with turkey meat. For Yalda, I cooked zeresh polo with turkey meat, and for dessert I baked caret cake with turkey meat. The next day I made Egg Benedict with turkey meat bacon.
By the time I was done with Thanksgiving Day’s turkey we had another turkey for Christmas Dinner. Fortunately this one was only about twelve pounds. For the fourth anniversary of Bam earthquake I ate four pound of turkey. For the Benazir Bhutto assassination I gorged on the rest of the turkey carcass.
Now, when I speak I sound like a turkey, when I poop the whole bathroom smells like a turkey farm. People want to know why I bob when I walked. There are no ayatollahs around to ask for Explanation of Problems relating to consumption of turkey meat, but fortunately the Dietician’er is here to give me an insight into the effects of diet on behavior……;O)
From now on I am going to eat chickens only. I hope I'll become a chicken. I don't want to be brave!
then they won't have to die...
and maybe in their diet's new diety, they will start to tie-dye instead...
you know, tie-dye shirts, batik, like the pacifist "hippies" used to make on their communes....they had a good organic diet, you know...
just a thought... a silly thought...
silly food for thought ...
Omid, you're very vsual. You like bright colors. Have you ever tie-dyed? :D
It was a senseless killing of the another corrupt and dishonest and greedy person. Her whole family is corrupt and power hungry. the people who can not control their emotion. What Pakistan needs is to eliminate the army all together, may seem idealistic, march without screaming, discontinue their dependence on USA, make permanent peace with India, and don't follow religious leader and read the Quran or any book they believe by themselves and above all dislodge themselves however painful from Arabia.
If one day I become the president of Pakistan and still in charg of her army the first thing I will order is to change pakistan diet from highly hot spiced charged food to more of mild low intake hot spice diet--
This will help the pakistani to mellow down in their ideology and in their ferverish temparment for their deity -- the hall mark of Talliban way of thinking and feeling--
Cut down on the hot spice in your daily food take only to see change in your body and in you mind for better--
That was my five cent worth of advise for the pakistani only if I was acting as Parviz for few good long minutes...
Hot Diet = Hot Deity = loss of profit
Omid, it is beautiful and I'm sure it took a long time to do. The colors are splendid.
Koroush, yes, carve as a dish fit for the gods...
a goddess for the gods...
but that it her legacy. It is HERS. And that will be revealed in time. I believe she won the battle. It is a question of time. A hero, a female warrior for the new millennium. A Middle Eastern one. An Oxford one. A Muslim one. Beyond par.
And so you see, Omid, back to you and the post you posted on my blog: I believe it is very important for a human to be willing to face death. Life is beautiful but death must not be feared. She knew, she knew, what she risked. She chose to risk it. To be free means to be free from fear of death. That is the ultimate freedom.

Pakistan is in flames. The flames that purify. It will get worse before it gets better. Be patient. Have faith.

A very nice art work of yours, with happy color manipulation. She looks so happy and alive. Somehow I feel that maybe darker color would show the heartbreaking feeling about her death (my Persian side mourning color …not that I am right!!).
Let's be sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.
. . . And, gentle friends,
Let's kill him boldly, but not wrathfully;
Let's carve him as a dish fit for the gods,
Not hew him as a carcass fit for hounds;
And let our hearts, as subtle masters do,
Stir up their servants to an act of rage,
And after seem to chide 'em.
No rosie he didn't paint it..this is the photoshop job..drag your picture into PS CS and under the filter-either use colored penciel or dry brush you'll get this effect..good job tho..
I am positive she had things to contribute other than looks, but alas in a sea of fat ugly women, she was good and even hot when she was younger.
Good work. The eyes look so alive. Alas, she's gone and still so young!
Very beautiful work.
Did you paint it?
