    I'm giving up my no coworker rule (well, I'm gonna try) because we just hired this girl from
    TCU and DAYUM.

    I have done this once, survived, and the next time can't possibly end up worse.

    Re: Lent sacrifice?

    I gave up pop when I was little because it was easy to do.

    now I go for challenges.

    gave up all social media. Which is only half hard because I don't use Facebook but I use Twitter to get my info.

    Technically wouldn't a Cyclone Fanatic message board be a social media?

    Technically, but I don't count it.

    besides, do you want me gone?

    Re: Lent sacrifice?

    I'm not very religious, but as a youngster we always went to a Baptist church.

    I always find this time of year pretty funny, to be honest. I'll admit I'm not very educated on Catholic traditions & what not, so maybe some of you can help explain them. For instance, is more importance put on certain ones? I know quite a few people who give up something for lent & go to church on days like today, Easter, & Christmas. Are these things "more important" than things like going to church the rest of the year, tithing, sex before marriage, & birth control?

    I'm not saying all Catholics are like this, but it just seems like many only do the things that are more widely publicized / more convenient.

    I attend Sundays. Hardly ever on Christmas or Easter though, the big Christian Holidays. My Mother always called the one who showed up for Ash Wednesday, Easter and Christmas, C and Es. (Christmas and Easters)
