Hello Invisible Friends!
Today marks the beginning of Lent. You may know this because yesterday was Fat Tuesday. Whether you are a Christian or a Wiccan Priest, it is always fun to think about what, exactly, you might give up to the higher powers during this time of sacrifice.
When I was a kid, I'd give up things like video games or candy or crying in my room alone.
Later, I would give up things like Self-Respect. Dreams. Hope. Just until Easter. This year for Lent, I think I will give up "Acting Like I'm 14."
So... networked theatricals... what would you give up for Lent?
