40 Days and 40 Nights

16 Feb

Hehe. Ok, so I am totally not a churchie but I do pray every night and try to abide by Lent rules each year by giving up something. I was contemplating what to give up this year.

Speaking of which, does anyone remember the movie 40 Days and 40 Nights with Josh Hartnett(rawr!)? I still think that feather scene is hot! Funny story, I remember going with a boyfriend in college (this dates me) to go see this movie. Anyways, he was kinda dorky and we were dating for three months or so and he would not make a move on me and he dropped me off at my sorority house at the end of the date and I kinda went off on him and then he finally told me he was shy and definitely into me. Just funny with the premise and the movie and all. Where was my patience gone?

*Alcohol? I have cut down my drinking to maybe once or twice every two weeks so not too difficult

*Cussing? No F***in way. I try to be a lady, I really do but just can’t help it. I cuss like a truck driver….or a sailor (I wonder which cusses worse?) around those who I am comfortable with and am trying to tone it down (especially since my friends are starting to have babies) but giving it up each day? Nope.

*Candy/Sweets? Again, something I don’t indulge in too often anymore but would love to. And with Valentine’s Day candy being half off (and soon 75% off!!) not gonna happen

*Caffeine? Um, let’s just say I wouldn’t do well in prison.

Which is where I would be if I deprived myself of caffeine. I would get turned in and shanked within 24 hours there so negative. Plus I am a little too sassy for prison and then I would have to tone it down a little and even if I were in prison, I would like to stay true to myself (is this the theme of Shawshank? Never seen it but it sounds like it?) Never did I think I would be blogging about myself in prison lol

*Chicken, Pork and Red Meat—Oh My! Ding Ding Ding. I love me some meat (hehe) but can definitely do without. A weekend or two ago, I went without meat and fared just fine so bring it on Lent! I wish I could give up fish too but that’s a little too hardcore for me which might result in said prison scenario mentioned if I gave up caffeine!

So starting tomorrow, none of my beloved meat. Sigh. I can do it though.

And did anyone see Lost tonight??! I want more! And how big of a bummer would that be working on Lost on location in Hawaii. Then the show ends and you then have to take a job on a tv show or movie in Kansas or something? Sad.

    Good luck with no meat! I don’t do Lent, but I am on a 2-week vegan challenge, if you get stuck for recipes I highly highly recommend “Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.” Now that I’m “forced” to use it the book has been kind of rocking my socks.

Let me know if you want some good recipes sans meat! For a great “fake meat”- try gardein chicken tenders- they rock! Lost is amazingggggg! Love that show 🙂

    Firstly, thanks for the comment on my Race for the Cure post!

    Secondly, it looks like we also have cursing like a truck driver in common! Good luck with the no meat- I love soy taco, add half a can of kidney beans and make a taco salad w/ some blue corn chips. So good!
