Another Way of Saying "Congratulations" ... from the film 500 Days of Summer ... "Every day you make me proud, and today you get a card."

A Catholic blogger I read whose name is Vito, author of the blog Stumbling After Francis: Learning to Live a Capuchin Life, published a blog entry post about his decision to not go online during Lent. I really admire his decision and I honestly don't think I'd be able to do it. The Internet is a big part of my life. I access music, movies, blogs, receive updates from my family and friends, and do my finances online. There's other things I use the web for that I'm no doubt forgetting.

I'm not affiliated with a church at the moment, so I'm not sure if I am even eligible for participating in Lent, but just the same I'm going to give up meat on Fridays and give up sugary foods. Now obviously I'm not going to be able to remove ALL sugars from my diet, but I will eliminate the ones that are nothing but sugar, like candy, soda, Red Bull, etc. Basically junk food is what I'm removing. I hope I can do it. This should be interesting. I'll post updates on my progress.

JR Celski

I really like him. He won the bronze tonight in the short-run speed skating at the Olympics. I'm now following him on Twitter. His Twitter account is here.

Valentine's Day

I'm single so I won't be doing anything special for Valentine's Day, but I'd like to watch a romantic movie. When I was at the grocery store I bought some chocolate-covered strawberries 'cuz I was in the mood.
I love the poetry recited during the opening ceremony of the winter Olympics.
