Giving anything up for lent?

I'm giving up interference! Yep, 40 days without posting or lurking.

The Grammy's are gonna be the toughest, but I'll make it.

I'll still be on AIM and you can always find me at likeo2@interference.com

Only 48 more hours before I leave, yikes!

I'm taking ON moderation. I know that sounds dumb, but believe me, it's not something I do well. I tend to binge like a madman. Lucky for me, I have a relatively fast metabolism. Still hopefully I'll learn the importance of moderation. I started fasting yesterday, to go from Sunday to Ash Wednesday, four days to represent 40. So good luck to all of us with our goals and sacrifices!!
Love,
SloMo

i was going to try and give up extraneous cheese but i decided that wasn't really going to make me a better person. i am going to try to go to mass at least one day a week in addition to sunday. and i'm going to try and stop swearing and biting my nails.

May the force be with you!

sweets. mmm...delicious sweets. not that i can't stand to loose a few pounds here and there...but in reality, Jesus DID sacrifice a lot for me, so giving up sweets for Jesus shant be a problem for 40 days.

I'm not Catholic either, but I'm still Christian and Christ still made a sacrifice for me.

errrm...I'm a Christian too and Lent is something my family has never celebrated. I wouldn't even know the first thing about it. Sorry if that's offensive.

I am a Protestant myself, but I usually make some significant sacrifice during lent. Two years ago, I gave up beer, which is, in effect, giving up alcohol, since beer is the only alcohol I drink. Last year, I "took up" running, every day, regardless of the weather. THAT was rough. I haven't decided this year, but I have considered giving up all of you (the web-based community known as www.interference.com ).
