Ash Wednesday is coming up this Wednesday.

What are you giving up?

I will try to refrain from drinking Coca-Cola, something that I like to have.

Bob Dylan Roof

The internet.

President Camacho

Are you also refraining from eating meat on Fridays? Or are you a retrograde 'awesome Vatican assassin' (no meat throughout Lent)?

Niccolo and Donkey
Coca-Cola is enough and I do no meat on Fridays through Lent. I will try for both this year. No meat through all of Lent is a tall order.

Beer. I was going to give up alcohol entirely (as I did last year) but then I realized that I'M A FUCKING CATHOLIC!


Caffeine is too easy. I'm going to try to give up swearing.

Niccolo and Donkey
I was thinking about that this morning but then came to realize that swearing is a release that helps calm nerves and lower blood pressure. Plus, I don't think I could do it.
