Crap, it starts tomorrow.

What should I give up for Lent this year?

Lent...just kidding. Have to throw an agnostic joke in there once in a while...haha.

Perhaps you should give up server changes...

I was thinking the same thing. Then I thought it was pointless to give something up, since I normally go back to it once Lent is over. Maybe I should just try to go to church regularly.

I think I might go hardcore and fast for 40 days. (Catholic fasting rules: one meal per day; food maybe be eaten at other times during the day but may not, in total, equate another full meal.) That includes abstinence (no meat... for eating) on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. We'll see. I might change my mind before tomorrow morning.

DNA, it's ok to go back to it. The point is to be penitent for 40 days that Christ blah blah blah.

Michelle - if you do I will do it too.
I already gave up soda this year. It's been over a month.

Then I hope you didn't eat a big breakfast, Jen, because I am doing it.

Doesn't sound like a full meal to me.

Dinner will be my big meal since I have had no lunch (really) and it is now 2:13pm. I had an apple and 3 Gingersnaps for lunch. I'm about to eat 1/2 of a grapefruit. I think I will have grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner. I'd have a bean burrito or something but I am already gassy from Kashi.

Mine is dinner, too. I will be going out for sushi with my family tonight. In the future, I will just see from day-to-day what my one meal will be. I have feeling that it will often be lunch.

That's pretty neat. Sounds like the fasting won't be so bad if you eat a lot of snacks.

the above is responsible for a mouthful of hot tea sprayed on my keyboard.
