OK, I'm not Catholic, and I probably have no more right celebrating Lent than I do celebrating Hanukkah, but I'm doing it anyway. It's better than a New Year's resolution, in that there is an end in sight, but once you get to the end of 40 days, haven't you already created a new habit, and therefore possibly changed something that you really wanted to change?

In any case, I have given up Coke for Lent. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, it has been a full week since I have had a single sip of Coke. I am pretty dang proud of myself, I must tell you. I only lasted 8 days last time, as I got laid off on the 9th and Ben & I fell off the wagon together by way of celebration. This time, I'm making it all 40.

You heard it here first.
