No I'm not kidding....for once.  
So I hemmed and hawed about what to give up for Lent this year because I just don't eat enough as it is to be able to give up a specific food group, and giving up video games wouldn't be much of a sacrifice because I haven't had time to play them lately anyway. I finally settled on giving up snark for the next 40 days and 40 nights. No more reading or watching stuff just to make fun of it (which is going to be hard because I just got the 3rd Twilight book yesterday and it’s hurting that I can’t read it now) no more reading my snarky LJ communities (sf_drama, ohnotheydidnt, stupid_free, any of the child free comms, etc) and no watching romantic comedies just so I can make fun of how stupid and overly emotional the characters in them are. That's right; I'm probably going to be a complete and utter kill joy for the next 40 days so here is your heads up as to why. I'm going to, try to anyway, use this time to try to be more sincere in general. Since I usually never take anything seriously we'll just have to see how this turns out. Personally I think I may go insane before the month is out. 0_o Later all!

It seems unreasonably difficult.

I don't think I could give up F!S for anything.

And oh my god, I haven't read any child free communities in forever -- they used to produce so much interesting wank back in the day.

Good luck with it XD

I don't think anything could be more difficult than last year when I gave up all violent movies and video games. I was basically reduced to playing Lumnieus and watching Disney movies. I was seeing nothing but puppies, kittens and rainbows for a month and a half! On the plus side I really kick ass at Lumnieus now because of it. lol

Thanks for the support!^^

I expect you guys to help keep me in line. God knows I'm probably going to slip up and start making fun of something, so when I do just smack me if you would. =P
