Whoops, I just posted this topic in Lemonade Stand! Maybe I should give up posting topics twice...

I haven't decided what to give up yet. My priest last year talked about how giving up chocolate/pop/chips etc, for 40 days is pretty pointless. (Just his opinion, don't flame me!) He suggested trying to start a good habit instead, like not having road rage or being nice to 2 strangers a day or taking the money you spend on coffee and snacks every day and giving it to a worthy cause. I think I might try to go along those lines. Anyone else?

Guess I don't have much time to decide!

you can also use it as 40 days to DO something like volunteer or something. Its just some way of making an effort to do something extra for 40 days.

I'm going to try not to say anything negative about New Jersey for 40 days. Weird I know, but right now Jersey really has it out for me.

Maybe you could give up being an Oklahoma Sooners fan?

I have officially decided to give you, the web-based community known as www.interference.com, up for Lent. No posting, no trolling, no alternate identities.

Effective at sundown today, this Ash Wednesday, until on or after the day marking Christ's Resurrection, Easter Sunday (March 31), I will not be around. I will be checking e-mail.

If you have any issues you wish to resolve wiht me beforehand, I would suggest addressing them before the clock of this forum reads 3:00 p.m. Pacific time.

Have a great Ash Wednesday/Lenten season/Maundy Thursday/Good Friday/Easter, Passover, St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, Presidnets' Day, Black History Month, and/or whatever else you observe in the next 6.5 weeks.

SAVOR THE ABSENCE.

Okay, if it sounds any better: I am giving up Klodomir for Lent.

That's more like it, Bama! See you in 40 days. If I live that long.

I don't wish to offend anybody, but is this really what lent is about? Internet, candy? Seems so... oh I dunno.
