Lent

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday today is Ash Wednesday and little me was unaware that this was the time to fast from something for 40 days. Now, I'm not Catholic, but I do think focusing on the Lord for 40 days is a splendid thing. I realized this in the early afternoon and had to find something to fast from that I hadn't had so far today. My weakness is ice cream. So, I'm declaring now a fast from ice cream for 40 days. What will you fast from?

My wife wanted to say something that I can't say, but she can't go without for an extended period of time, and I think it is inappropiate on this family board.

French Fries. That's what I did last year for Lent and I'm going to do the same this year. They are a temptation of mine and if I give up fries, I also just about give up fast food in general (if I can't eat the fries, there is no need to go =)).
