Here Is A Thought On A Friday

I think it’s really dumb to have Fat Tuesday two days before Valentine’s Day. It’s like, what if I gave up chocolate for Lent? Then everyone is just eating chocolate in my face like a bunch of jerkface temptation monsters. I mean, I can’t believe Pope Gregory XIII didn’t think of this possibility when he made the calendar. He must not have been a chocolate lover.

Anyway, I didn’t give up chocolate. I just think it would have really sucked if I had.

  1. I should have my head examined, because I gave caffeine AND chocolate up. Not for lent, but 8 days ago. The pain is so fresh we are still counting it in days….it’s insanity. Yesterday was horrible surrounded by all those jerk face temptation monsters, and an office oozing with chocolate. But really, I’m the jerk face for giving up chocolate at such a stupid time of year!

  2. I’ve never really understood Lent (we went to non-denominational churches growing up.) I completely respect it, but as a teenager watching my friends complain about not being able to drink a Coke or whatever, and I was always like – “Seriously, don’t you think Jesus has more important things to concern himself with? And no way way does being killed=no coke. Shut up.” πŸ˜‰ **said the not Catholic School Girl right before God zapped her with a lightening bolt in her office chair*** πŸ™‚

  3. Well first, Fat Tuesday falls on a different day of the month every year. Second, the very idea of Mardi Gras is to indulge in the thing you plan to give up for Lent just before you have to give it up. =). So, this could be accomplished if your man thinks ahead and gives you all the chocolate stuff early. if he knows You are about to give it up. Lastly, anyone who gives up chocolate should have their head examined. =P

    I was just thinking that yesterday too…how many people decided to give up chocolate or some other food the really loved for Lent…and then one day later realized how much of a sacrifice it would be.

      1. there truly is. although at times I’ve feared I may have to recycle Buffy-quotes I’ve already used. or else fall back on Monty Python or classic musicals…

  5. Um. You do know when Fat Tuesday is, in relation to Lent?

    Personally I suspect that’s WHY it’s called Fat Tuesday… because of all the Chocolate Lovers getting their last digs in and making up for 40 days without, before Lent begins.

    1. Though that does put undo pressure on the men to THINK AHEAD and make sure they start giving you the chocolate presents earlier. I can get behind celebrating Valentine’s Day all week long, can’t you?

      1. Stupid St. Valentine, getting beheaded on such an inconvenient day.

        Wow. That was just wrong of me. Too soon, right?

        By the way, sorry for all the comments. I’ve either had too much or too little coffee this morning.
