Lenten Season is Over

I took not a sip of booze this entire endeavor and cut my cursing almost completely out of my vocabulary ( I still had some knee-jerk call outs)

But with the coming of Easter is the ending of the Lent fast.

So did you guys make good on your vows? Were you able to give something up or did it end up defining you?

Were you too weak to give it up? Did you last all the way til today through strength of will and yada yada

    Hey munkus, congrats!

    I answered your question last night in the Black Hole Sons thread, but I'll repeat it here. I did very well on not eating any junk-food during Lent, but I wasn't as good regarding alcohol. I drank at St. Patrick's Day, and then had a few during special occasion like birthdays, etc.

    I had a cadbury cream egg the other day. The first time I ever had one.

    I felt as if I needed an insulin shot halfway through. Hell if I ate the entire box I may have just gone blind. I needed an entire huge glass of milk work it down it was so sweet.

    I mean, technically I gave up sweets by order of God. Except, instead of sweets I mean heroin. And instead of God I mean the courts.

    Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."

    Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'[a]"

    Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6"If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written:
    " 'He will command his angels concerning you,
    and they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

    Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'[c]"

    Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."

    Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'[d]"

    Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

    That's kinda reaching, pipe.



    Also, last year some religious yahoos came to my door and had their kids try to invite me to their Easter service. Lame.

    I mean, yeah, I understand that some people go out and try to get new recruits and that's just a fact of life you have to deal with. But using children? That's just low. Poor kids.
