Tommorrow marks the beginning of Lent, as anyone who is a Christian and -unlike me- is not a non-denominationalist should know. (I’m guessing that Eastern Orthodox guys are all screwed up too, due to their screwy week-late Easter celebrations and all.)
But I don’t know what to fast this year. Food as wholesale (even for, say, daylight) is out of the question. Maybe I can, but I tend to get short during those periods. And I don’t need to get any more impatient or angry. Not at work.
Maybe I can fast from work.
Ok, what about coffee? I didn’t do any prep on that. I dunno. Sounds sketchy. I never feel like I get enough sleep.
I wonder how many wimpy Christians (like me) refrain from coffee drinking during this period. Must put Starbucks and the big coffee international corporations on a dip. They refer to Lent as “the Lean Months.” I can hear trembling in an office in Seattle, “We’re going to have to temporarily lay off about 1/3 of our work force for forty days. Slowly bring them back during the week after Easter.”
I need to blog more, not less. So that’s out of the question.
I don’t watch tv, except for The Office, which I catch on my iPod.
What’s your choice? What are you Lenting this year? Are you? What should I Lent?
