What are you giving up for Lent?
Many of my housemates are of the very Christian, but not irritating variety; if not for seeing a couple of them spotted with soot this evening, I would not have remembered that today is Ash Wednesday, i.e., the beginning of Lent.
They're all making sacrifices.
chocolate, music that's not Christian rock (!), and Barenaked Ladies.
I'm not particularly Christian (and probably wouldn't advertise my faith if I were).
But suffering is fun.
So I'm going to go 40 days without whining about my boy troubles.
P.S. Ash Wednesday always follows Fat Tuesday. The whole point of Fat Tuesday is to precede Ash Wednesday.
