Lent or Lament

Here I am, post Ash Wednesday and i gave up Twitter. I don’t know what is going on in the world…and no i don’t watch the news except Russell Howard’s Good News. (I totally love that guy!, if you are that hot and can make me laugh, you got me).
Back to lamenting…
I spoke to a friend who asked me if I had given up meat or sex or chocolate. I said no, no and no. My reasons being
1. I don’t think Jesus is represented by the goat meat I hauled from Romford, 2 weeks ago
2.I don’t think the husband can handle no sex for 40 days
3.I think chocolate is why my skin tone is the way it is, chocolate

Another friend said it doesn’t have to be about giving up something but taking up something which makes me a better person. So now blogging it is, expressing myself should open my creative being and help me decide me, better me. Maybe finally spark up the Rosetta Stone and expand the vocabulary past ‘Ich liebe dich‘.

I should go to mass more, ask for guidance and the dove may descend in a moment of inspiration and i will find the idea which will save the world. I hope.

What are you giving up for Lent?

    Nothing really. partly don't want to make a tradition of lent and partly have nothing I want to give up.
