So I have 2 weeks to go in Lent.  And I am barely hanging in there.

I have been good without eating any red meat.  But damn I want to tear into a steak so bad.  You just don’t know!  And the lack of sweet tea (or any tea for that matter) has been killing me.  I am amazed at my self-discipline.

The no haircuts and no shaving thing is in full effect.  I am truly shocked by this.  About 2 weeks ago I was so close to shaving that I actually applied the shaving cream to my face.  It was oh so close.

I failed in trying to avoid going out for lunch.  It was just to damn hard to do.  So I botched that one up.  And the not eating after sundown?  Yeah.  That’s down the tubes as well.  Now you know why I stacked the deck.  I knew I would crack on a couple.  Oh, yeah.  The no sarcasm thing?  Didn’t work either.  :(

Anyway, bottom line is I have 2 weeks to go.  And right now I look like a homeless guy.  A cranky homeless guy.  I have been trying to keep up with some pics of the beard, so I will be posting what I have the day after easter.

See you at the finish line.  Which also resembles a barber shop.

  • If you were my son, I would be proud. I am still proud. I messed up one Sunday and had some thin mints, but I was really ambiguous on the dark chocolate thing. Otherwise, I have been ok. I almost caved yesterday on pizza.

  • I’m impressed. I failed on the no red meat on Fridays thing. I totally forgot about it. But I’ve been good with my no coffee. I did slip and have some coffee ice cream, but I don’t think that counts. There’s no caffeine in it.

    Can’t wait to see the pics.

    That’s an interesting tactic stacking the deck… It got me thinking. Thank goodness God gave us 10 commandments so that we had plenty of chances to succeed if we screwed up a couple.

    That’s how it works, right??

  • ef:

    Apparently Lent is bringing you not only closer to Jesus, but making you look like him too!

    Mission Accomplished!

  • Mike:

    I’m so glad I’m not Catholic. That would never work for me.

    Our VP bought our entire department pizza for lunch today and I ate until I couldn’t move. How does that make you feel? :D

  • The tired and thirsty prospector threw himself down at the edge of the watering hole and started to drink. But then he looked around and saw skulls and bones everywhere. "Uh-oh," he thought, "this watering hole is reserved for skeletons."
