I'd say most Catholics who go to church regularly adhere to the no meat Fridays during Lent, which also includes Ash Wednesday. Your opinion of those customs and why they are there makes no difference.
Well, the Catholic Church considers aligator and beaver "fish", so she could eat those instead.

But the good thing is that you resisted it for quite some time. Much longer than the others.

Today's arrgh over here: the heating at ym office went down some time last night. Fortunately, we have only very mild frost so that the pipes won't burst. And on Fridays we work only till noon anyway. Fortunately, my plants can stand low temperatures

^ Very true. I'm little annoyed at myself for failing my first assignment with cisco. Got to resit the quiz next week. Must get over 80% to pass (got 69%). Know where I went wrong, and planning on making some notes over the weekend.

Re: arrrgh!!!!!!!!

Believe me Elim it's better to fail and force yourself to work hard and master the subject and resit the exam, than it is to score an easy 99.9% and come away none the wiser (none the smarter?)

My rant isn't a rant so much as a pet peeve. I hate it when people misuse their facebook names to advertise their beliefs or products or companies or other things that are not their names.

John GoMagpies Citizen
Jane MelbourneMcDonalds Doe

and so forth.

It's especially annoying when they use the names of sports starts they admire, because their names are names, and it's hard to tell what's what.

Danielle Didak Person, or Jim Taz Parsons

Somehow or other I have allowed these people onto my friends list, and they sit there gathering mildew and forcing me to post-process their screen names, which is a really great way to annoy me. I could clean them out, but I'm really sentimental about my friends list. Besides their crime isn't worth a facebook death sentence. It's just annoying.

Rereading that, I sure am lucky if that's the best rant I can come up with.

I hate that, too. I also hate it when they have separate accounts but use them almost solely to spam each other (and then spam other people's statuses with their cutesy back-and-forth talk.)

Re: arrrgh!!!!!!!!

And why don't they talk like this to each other IRL instead of wasting their time (and our nerves) doing it online?

Re: arrrgh!!!!!!!!

I've got something proper to bitch about now, and it's a doozy. My house was broken into last night. Probably as I was typing the above, funnily enough.

They entered through the side gate (that I should have kept locked, bad Nick), broke a window, moved one of my garbage bins for no obvious reason, ignored all my computers and electronic gear thank god, rifled through my wardrobe without taking anything, and then went through my jewelry bag. And, just to add insult to injury, they ignored my collection of cufflinks, chains and my fob watch and took the bag itself. At least they had the courtesy to close the window that they entered through on the way out.

The neighbours told me that they heard noises around 12:30 last night, which is when I got home, more or less. I could be the reason they made off with next to nothing, which far from being comforting, is creeping me the hell out.

I hope the cops catch these people before I do. I am going to burn them alive.
