Not A Choice for Lent

Oh Sweet delectable elixir of the morning. I am writing to say that this affair must end. You can't be good for me. When I'm not around you make me hurt. (literally) Why do you need to cause me pain just because we don't get together one morning. I think you have issues you need to work out. So until you can handle brief moments of separation without making my head feel like it's going to explode we're going to have to call it quits for now. Sure you're going to make me feel miserable for the next few days. But then you'll realize your life doesn't need to revolve around me. So until then. Farewell Coffee.

My Ipod

I did my top 5 podcasts which seemed to go over well so I thought I'd do top 5 songs on my ipod. Or at least the ones I listen to the most.

5. When the Soldiers Sing Red Army Chorus
I used to have a Red Army Chorus two cd set when Tina and I first got married and I don't remember if this song was on it. But I heard it in the movie The Trotzky and realized I had to have it. I love Russian music.
4. Viva la Vida Coldplay
This could almost be considered an oldy. Love the strings.
3. Double Vision 3Oh!3
I'm a sucker for songs with a beat.
2. Marry You Glee Cast Version
This is a happy song for me. I wish I was in a choir and that this was one of the songs we sang.
1. Club Can't Handle Me Flo Rida
This song has a "no counter clockwise movement of the volume dial" policy. I nearly drove off the road once I was rockin' so hard. And yes Tina. My musical tastes have not matured since I was 12.

Ok so this picture has nothing to do with Lent but it is a cool picture and I hand't posted any from the Grade 7 camping trip yet.
So it is now Lent. There seems to be a lot of talk, at least in some of my social networks, about what to give up for Lent. I gave up coffee one year and last year I only had meat on Sundays. This year I was looking for something a little more intentional towards my spiritual well being. I have decided to give up complaining. This is going to be hard because I'm pretty good at it. If something is bugging me I'm willing to let everyone know about it. Except of course the people who may be behind the reason for my malcontent. I don't think this is healthy and I'm not afraid to admit this shortcoming of mine.
I could look for a Bible verse to back up my decision to give up complaining but I don't think I need it. This view isn't unique to Christianity so I'll take the advice of all faiths on this one.
