    But seriously, I kind of like the idea of giving up something for a while just for kicks. Can't decide what.
    In all seriousness, it's kind of a bitch to give up something for 40 days just for the sake of sacrificing persoanl indulgence. If I give up cookies and milk at 2 AM each night as I sleepwalk through the kitchen for the sake of getting in better shape, that's cool, no problemo! But, I have difficulty giving up cookies and mil at 2 AM for a symbolistic effort at being a selfless individual. I'd rather perform lots of extra good deeds over a 40 day period (I do alot of good deeds in my everyday life already, no shit) as it seems to serve a purpose for the greater good, while eliminating my midnight snacking does not make the world a better place...

    well then i could add doing something to help the greater good.

    or eliminate something that is holding me back. or would make me feel high and mighty.

    or all of them.

    *thinking*
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    Quit smoking (11 days and counting :P). Cold turkey. Hopefully it was last longer than Lent.
