Writer's Block: Self-Indulgent 
25th-Feb-2009 11:00 pm
If you had to give up one indulgence for 40 days, what would it be?

I used to joke that I was giving up black tar heroin and cocaine for Lent every year. (Which was easy, since I've never done either of them.)

These days, I don't have much in the way of indulgences TO give up for Lent even if I wanted to. I understand the point of the practice (Much the way fasting works in Judaism and the whole "You shall not consume anything between dawn and dusk" during Ramadan), but I'm already grateful for what I do have, and have enough reminders of the dangers of taking G-d's gifts for granted.

I personally feel I don't need to give up something for 40 days, just to prove my faith is strong. I'm sure the Goddess would consider that rather silly. I prefer to hang on to my vices. *grin*

I've already given up the sex, so no problem with that. Coffee.....NOT! I had to give up chocolate for some years due to allergies, but now that it's back....NO!!!

I guess I could give up the TV for 40 days....after all I can watch the programs on the internet. But by gods I'll want a synopsis.
