It's the first day of Lent.  
It's a law of the internet: any mention of a holiday always gets at least one reply asserting that the respondent pays no attention to that holiday, and why.

The response demonstrates that the respondent, in that alleged disregard, pays more attention to the holiday than do those who might observe it casually, and feel no need to comment.

That said, this is the first day of Lent -- a ritual I observe only in the most secular way -- and thus, I bid you all the appropriate tidings for Ash Wednesday.

I don't pay any attention to that holiday.


Now that's over with....

Actually, I try to 'cause I like keeping track of Mardi Gras, which I hope to someday attend in both New Orleans and Rio.

I had lentils for lunch. Leftover lentils.

So, they were Passedover lentils?

No, not really... They were Monastery Lentils, with the addition of sliced, dry-fried polska kielbasa. Very yummy (if one likes sausage).

so Monastery lentils can't be Passedover?

A Catholic gent marries a Protestant girl and they honeymoon in New Orleans for Fat Tuesday. The night of their honeymoon goes quite well, but the next night when she seeks him out for the pleasures of the marital bed, he explains that he can't because it's Lent. "Lent?!?!" she demands, "For how long and to whom?"
