Mrs. Cullen: The Kashmiri

Dear Friends,

Right now I could be studying. I really need to study. A lot. I could be and I should be studying right now. But NOOOO I had to write a post. I just had to. Or God knows what CC would do to me. Anyways. I wanted to write a few weeks ago when a stupid boy at my old job (YES!! I quit the Call Center just like CA) asked me a stupid question. We were just sitting there, calling away at the Call Center and he turned out and asked me, "Are you allowed to touch your brother?" I was like "WTF!?!??!" Just kidding. I don't swear. I said, "Uhh...yeah." I thought in my head, however, "What an idiot." But maybe hes not an idiot and a lot of people wonder that? Sorry if you wonder that too because I kinda called you an idiot. But you aren't. I am the idiot. I shouldn't assume everyone knows these simple things about Islam. Especially when (unfortunately) I don't know much about other religions.

OO that reminds me. I kinda learned a lot about Judaism. Last year my friend and I found a book at our College called What You Thought You Knew About Judaism: 341 Common Misconceptions About Jewish Life. That is the best book ever! I honestly learned a lot, and OK I must admit, it was pretty funny. Uh anyways. Today my sister came back from her vacation in Kashmir (and no, I am not talking about the Led Zeppelin song). Kashmir, India. She got me some pretty cool stuff. Oh and by the way, Kashmir is the most beautiful place on earth. Because I was born there and because its beautiful!! Honestly. Its known as "Paradise on Earth." Sigh.

Anyways, back to touching my brother. YES We can touch our brothers and our fathers and uncles and grandfathers and...DUN DUN DUN..our husbands! Yes its true, we can touch our (future) husbands...I know, I know..shocking, right? Ok I really need to start studying now. Ok bye.

Yours for the sake of Peace and Touching,
Mrs. Cullen

PS: Mrs. Cullen can touch Mr. Cullen. Hayyyy
PSS: In case you care at all, I am once again from Kashmir, India. Yes, India. Not Pakistan. There is a Kashmir in Pakistan but its not the "paradise on earth." Its lame. K. Thanks for listening.

The Kashmir,India you are speaking of (where you were born)...IS the SAME Kashmir spoken of in the song. Led Zeppelin wrote. "Kashmir" IS about the place he (Robert Plant) thought of as 'Paradise on earth'...that is what the ENTIRE song is about. He went there (in reality) and wrote about it.
