I am quickly developing an utter hatred for Lent and all things Lentish. I WANT TO BUY THINGS DAMMIT.


I have this whole list of music I want to buy, clothes I want to buy, furniture I want to buy, and fun and silly things I want to buy. And I can't. Because, as I might have mentioned, I have given up unnecessary spending for Lent.

*glares at Lent*

And annoyingly, every time I start fuming about how dumb I was to give up anything for Lent, I have this voice in the back of my mind interrupt with "And why were you doing Lent, again?"

"To remind me that this stuff isn't important, and to focus on things that matter."

"Well?"

"Well... I didn't mean it. And besides, I want to buy stuff."

"You don't have a restriction on buying 'stuff'. Just on unnecessary stuff."

"But I want to buy this stuff. Now."

"Then buy it. As long as it's necessary."

"But I can't. It's not important enough to be necessary."

"Oh good. So you're getting the idea."

*glares at Lent some more*


For the record, I'm still doing my Lent thing. (Even though I'm thinking of tracking down whoever invented it and hitting them in the face or something.) I also have a long list of stuff to shop for - and it's getting longer by the day.

You can spend this time contemplating, winnowing and editing your list, and then at the end of Lent you will have the perfect list of things to buy. It will be short, yet complete and fulfilling.

I know what you mean. Today is a fasting day, and I keep walking past food in the house and not being about to eat it. Plus, I made this yummy smelling beet soup for dinner, and I can't taste it yet. Sigh.
