Lent and giving up stuff

So it's Lent now. Since I enjoyed Pancake Tuesday so thoroughly with the expense of not going to the member's information evening for Engineer's Ireland. I forgot that Lent starts the next day on Ash Wednesday. Needless to say I didn't get my forehead smudged with ash, not that I would have made any effort to have got it done anyway. I figured I may as well do something christian and productive and I've decided with my girlfriend that I'm going to give up a few things. I haven't decided what I'm going to take up as well now, but here's what I'm giving up.

  1. Chocolate (the sweet lady here is going to be so upset and probably put out of business here)
  2. Smoking (I know, you thought I'd given up, but I keep doing it when I have a few pints!)
  3. Playing games (this is the hardest of them all, I love my games, I don't know if I can really give this one up, it's just too hard and I've too many to finish!)
So that's the deal. It's going to be a hard 40 days!

Does this mean that the ITPEC organisation in Asia is responsible?
I dunno, but whatever you do, DO NOT enter your details into this FAKE login page!!
