I did it!  Easter is here, and I made it all through Lent without breaking down and eating meat.

Lent, Day 45: One Day Left…

Wow, I can’t wait until tomorrow!  I feel kind of silly about being THAT excited about the end of Lent, but still…   I think this is the first time I have ever ‘given up’ anything for Lent that had an actual impact on my daily-life the way this turned out to have, so I guess at the very least I feel I’ve done the thing right.   When I was younger it was always giving up things like ‘candy’ or ‘soda’, which in my case isn’t that much of a sacrifice.   I still boggle that I didn’t think giving up meat would be all that much of a sacrifice either; I was wrong about that.

Lent, Day 44: Good Friday

Almost there now.  I can almost smell the sausage cooking…

Good Friday has always been one of my favorite services of the year.   As a rule I’m not a very emotionally-affected person, so the fact that a church service actually depresses me is kind of novel and interesting.  I actually find that sort of nice.

But it seemed fitting that today was a Down Day, so I went in to our Good Friday service feeling subdued anyway.

Lent, Day 38: Jeans, Revisited

Technically, you know, Lent is over now.  As of today we switch to Holy Week, as today is Palm Sunday.  But the idea is to stay ‘fasting’ until Easter, so I have one more week until I can eat meat again.  Almost there.

Today’s topic is jeans.

Lent, Day 35: Shopping for Clothes Again

Not quite the same thing as last time.  For one thing, I was shopping in a retail store, and for another, the clothing I was buying was …delicates?

Lent, Day 33: Andy and Odwalla

Short entry today, because I’m short on time.  I just wanted to mention two things.

Lent, Day 31: Appetite

Appetite is a funny thing, I’m finding.  If there were a good way to study the way emotions impact your appetite, I bet the results would be really fascinating.
