It's Party Season

December 9th, 2006 at 12:37 pm

I went south 200 miles with some friends and met up with some more friends to have a feast and a gift exchange. I took some cream cheese and ginger sandwiches. Ironically we were meeting in a Catholic church hall but it didn't stop us committing the sin of gluttony. Several of us have resolved that we will fast every Friday next year. In my case, I think it will be a good plan to make every Friday a no spend day too, just to overcome lust for all those material goods.

I used to live in this town so went for a stroll round with my friends to see how things have changed. It seems a lot larger and there are a lot of new shops, all the big chains, which they are very proud of as sign of development. I came across one bookstore where they were giving away old posters. I got a couple with pictures of cookbooks on them, to put in my kitchen. Hmm, did I say I was fasting next year? For the moment, however, I will eat drink and be merry.

    What a great idea. Let us know how you're doing. I think that one day thing would do all of us alot of good too. By not eating so much, spending so much, putting our digestive system through so much and on you go.

    That's a great idea - the Friday spending fast. I've been toying with the idea of giving up spending for Lent, myself.
