Well, I’m going with what people voted for that I give up for Lent.  AS LONG AS I CAN.  I’m a pretty clean cut dude, so this won’t be easy.  But I will be adding a few other challenges to the list to fall back on, because I’m realistic about this haircut/shaving thing.  Anyway, here is my list for Lent 2009.  Gonna be a good Catholic…

  • No haircuts or shaving.  This is what was voted on.  I will do my best, but I wouldn’t bet on me.
  • No eating out.  I may actually starve to death.  This will force me into learning how to cook.
  • No sarcasm.  I will break this one within the hour.
  • No red meat.  I’ve done this a couple of times and it has gotten more difficult.  But it has lowered my cholesterol.
  • No sweet tea.  Oh the humanity!!!
  • Fasting after sundown.  Hakeem Olajuwon did this one year.  I figure if a world class athlete is capable, why not me?

I look at this list and see that most of the stuff that people sacrifice, including myself, have to do with eating.  I bet they don’t do that in other parts of the world.  Only in America.  But, hey, what can you do?

So it begins today.  Wish me luck.  Say a little prayer for me.  And if I start looking pretty scruffy, don’t call the cops claiming you saw a terrorist.  Wait.  Was that politically incorrect?  Maybe I will give that up next year.

Today's Deep Thought

  • I think the things you remember most are the little things, like that little space guy I kept tied up down in the basement. That little guy was only about five inches tall! He used to beg me to untie his rope, but I knew he'd just run away if I did. I think the cat finally got him, but the cat had little burn marks on him, from where the space guy shot him with his little gun, before his ammo ran out. I remember things like that.
