Personally, I decided to steal the Curt Jester's queue and "give up giving up things". It's kinda similar to the New Year's resolution I made, which was not to make any more New Year's resolutions. Saves myself from making any promises I can't guarantee that I'd keep, or promises that I'd have no intention of keeping in the first place. Just like saying, "I promise not to make any more promises."

To be honest with you, this concept of "giving up {x,y,z} for Lent" is a foreign concept to me. I had first heard of it in high school, when some of my classmates were asking amongst themselves what they were going to give up for Lent. So I always thought it was an American Catholic thing.

Anyway, what I decided to do - as my science friends are always asking me out for suppers out to talk about science and life in general, or if I get too busy to pack a lunch and eat in the hospital cafeteria, I thought that I should match, dollar for dollar, what I spent eating out and give the proceeds to the parish's "Love Fund" to do with it as they see fit.

One of my tenors announced after the Rite of Election that, for Lent, he had given up his New Year's Resolution.
