Still here

But rather neglectful. I had considered 'giving up' blogging for Lent, but was so infuriated by the nonsense about cricket that I simply had to post. But now, mid-way through this period of abstinence, I find myself at a loose end, wondering why the DoM chooses such drivel for the Lentern Sundays music list (Sundays don't count in Lent; they are all festivals of the resurrection, therefore should be celebrated with appropriate music and not the turgid nonsense he insists on us singing). Honestly, you'd think that one of the clergy would disabuse him of his mistaken notion, but they probably don't know any better. So, what have I given up for Lent? Giving up, that's what. It's simply too much trouble.

Cheery-o!

P.S I've given up making up my own comments and just write 'ditto' instead.

I too gave up the blog for a while. Then I decided that I'd come back to it, but to stop being such a smart ass. Now, I'm thinking on giving up on that notion.

I tried giving up brandy during Lent. That seems to be the only thing I can stay committed to these days.

Well I did give up caffeine...but I thought it was only 40 days...now someone tells me its 47. That's daylight robbery

Sounds like your DoM has given up decent music for lent!
