butterfly girl : where she goes when she


i've made it official (signed & witnessed by 2 workmates!): i'm giving up McDonalds for Lent.

(i know McDonalds is wrong for so many reasons; but oh, i just love their cheeseburgers far too much. this is as good a time as any to try and break out of that.)

what are you giving up for Lent?
butterfly girl : where she goes when she


just to clarify on the last post. i'm giving up McDonalds's for "Lent"; however, i do not follow the catholic religion at all, and do not and will not be celebrating any catholic holidays from hereonin (WITH the exception of christmas, for family reasons). this does include easter. the idea of "Lent", though i do not believe in jesus and subsequently, the notion of his 40 days spent in the desert, happens to be just a good reason for me to begin to give up something that i have been wanting to give up for a little while now (and just haven't had the willpower to). i'm sorry if this seems disrespectful in any way; i don't mean for it to be. when the radio dj's were talking about lent this morning, i gave it no thought; it wasn't until we were in the car on the way to work that liz put forth the question to myself and noel, "what are you giving up for lent?" my first reaction was just silly things - like josh hartnett's character giving up sex in 40 days & 40 nights - but then i realised this was simply just a good opportunity for me to finally bite the bullet and say, i am going to resist eating mcdonalds food from now on. since the emphasis is on sacrifice and all. i figured now was probably the best time to start.

but apologies if it offends any one [catholics or not] or if i misled anyone. it just seemed like a good opportunity to begin my moral quest of giving up mcdonalds.

(&damnit. i can't keep anything short, can i? !!)

&also. no lectures on religion or lack thereof, okay? we all make our own decisions for our own reasons.
