First day of Lent

Only thirty-nine more days without lentils to go.

Also, it rained! And immediately the electricity failed! And the roads looked buttered, they had so much oil easing to their surface!

Pairs of Brussels Sprouts are safe from moi for 40 days and 40 nights...or am I supposed to building a dingy from 30 cubits of silverbeet?

Are you really abstaining from lentils? I couldn't decide between giving up leaning or lending for lent. Love.

Might give up mopping floors. Lentils for Lent, I wish I'd thought of that when I was a little Catholic sprog. You're so clever, A.

I dunno if I can make it without lentils. It's only been two days, and that's fine, but tofu gets really tofuy after a month.

I'd give up mopping floors too, except that I never mop floors anyway. Actually, there was that one time, but I don't think it counts as a regular indulgence for me. As for Brussels Sprouts, add enough salt and fat and heat and garlic and Bob's your uncle. Not that you need to hear that, Jayne, in the midst of your penitential abstinence.

CH, ha! You da lady!
