Some pictures from the scene when the bomb went off. Thankful that I am safe and my thoughts and prayers go out to all those who lost their lives today.
It’s that time again….Lent! I know everything thinks that only Catholics give up things for Lent, but tis not true….I’m a Methodist and I’ve been giving up things for Lent since I’ve been a wee bit.
I enjoy the Lenten time….giving up things helps me focus…and let’s face it, is also helps my diet. I do like that it shows my ability to stay committed to something for 40 days and 40 nights.
So, what am I giving up?
1. Pizza and candy. These things have been my staples for Lent…for probably 10 years. I used to do it because I could never usually last even a month without eating pizza….so I basically used Lent to help me not stuff my face with pizza. I also pick candy because those soul sucking stores start putting Easter candy out well before Easter…and I have a Cadbury Mini Egg problem. It made it easier for me to not eat my body weight in those suckers. These days….I just give it up out of tradition….since I haven’t eaten pizza and candy in about 6 weeks anyways….so it’s not such the sacrifice it used to be.
2. As a result of the above….I plan on giving up about 10 lbs from my booty at the end of Lent. I’ll basically be at my weight loss goal if I do that.
3. I also like to focus on something more spiritual and positive when it comes to Lent as well. So this year I am committing to doing at least one random act of kindness each week of Lent. I want to look for opportunities to be the best kind of person I can be.
So that’s what I’m doing for Lent. Giving up or doing anything???
Earlier today, Kevin Youkilis signed a one year, $12 million contract with the New York Yankees. Unfortunately, this fractured our current timeline into three, separate, distinct, and terrifying futures.
It will be up to our NASA scientists, the ones who created this chart, to re-align us onto the proper path. The only problem? We’ll never know if we’re in the proper timeline until it’s too late.

May god help us all.
This is kind of fantastic. #YOUK
