I went into “mouth watering” overdrive right thru my laughter. Reply Melody February 21, 2007 - 5:46 pm Gr… this post is evil… At least I have tea. *sips tea frantically* Reply Christine the Soccer Mom February 21, 2007 - 6:19 pm mean, mean, mean… This is not helping me get excited about my tuna sandwich, you know. BTW, do vegetarians and vegans eat meat on Fridays? Reply Mr. Flapatap February 21, 2007 - 6:52 pm We got an Omaha Steaks catalog on the mail today!!!! Reply Fr. Valencheck February 21, 2007 - 6:58 pm I hate fish. That was just mean! Reply Sarah February 21, 2007 - 7:47 pm HATE FISH! LOVE RED MEAT! Thank you, oh Lord, for this oppurtunity to sacrifice. However, I might have to get up at 1:00 am and have a burger… Reply SpellCheckingNut February 21, 2007 - 8:12 pm ELICIT, not ILLICIT. “ILLICIT” means improper, wrong, illegal, forbidden, etc. “ELICIT” means to draw forth, as in ELICITING a reaction by posting tempting, scrumptious, delicious, tasty-looking sausages and pork chops on Ash Wednesday! What kind of a twisted blogger does that, anyway? It would be ILLICIT to eat that delicious looking grilled steak today, Ash Wednesday. Reply Literacy-chic February 21, 2007 - 9:21 pm We got the Omaha Steaks catalog, too. Was it a calculated effort? Reply Britt Shankle February 21, 2007 - 11:30 pm “oh, what are you doing!? To answer the question about vegetarians, i was a vegetarian once. And then my beau continuously tempted me with bacon after bacon, until I could stand it no more. 11 years of vegetables only went flying out the door…. ….on Fat Tuesday last year. needless to say, that was a long freakin’ lent.” Reply L February 21, 2007 - 11:40 pm You’re awful, Jeff Reply Kevin February 22, 2007 - 3:44 am Ouch. What are you trying to do to us, sir? Reply Maggie February 22, 2007 - 12:05 pm Feasting with the eyes doesn’t break the fast, just an observation. Reply fr richard February 22, 2007 - 12:11 pm Very funny. But I will challenge that statement that there will be no reaction to it today. Countless Eastern Catholics won’t eat any of these delectibles until Easter. Yet I don’t want to encourage you to keep posting these photos every day…the spirit is willing, but… Reply IC February 23, 2007 - 9:41 am You know, these pictures “kick in” today as well. Although those slabs are sort of a turn off too. So this could actually be a help! Reply Jeff Childers February 24, 2007 - 11:08 am I reccommended that my non-smoking fellow seminarians take up smoking for Lent. It hasn’t gone over too well. On the flip side, many of my smoking brothers gave up buying their own smokes for Lent. Reply Chris February 24, 2007 - 11:29 am Spent the week at a corporate convention in Phoenix…tons of food served at every meal and every break…and I ate 2 nutrigrain bars when I got up, a granola bar at midday, and for my one full meal I bypassed sirloin, pork ribs, and some kind of chicken. Consolation prize happened to be baked swordfish… Reply Karen Marie Knapp February 25, 2007 - 2:26 pm Reminds me of the Ash Wednesday I spent in the nursing home a few years ago. That was the day the administration chose to celebrate Black History Month on the menu, so for lunch and dinner we were served fried chicken, barbecued ribs, cornbread stuffing with pieces of turkey in, collard and turnip greens with hamhocks,……. and of course they’re charting everything you eat, and you’re trying hard to heal wounds, so not eating isn’t an option…..
