Happy Easter to all of our Christian readers! ER, FishWatch's Catholic in residence, is especially joyous today, not just because she is excited about her easter hat or the Gospel of Judas, but also because she can go back to eating entire packs of starbursts, which she gave up for lent along with all other sweet things. I can vouch for her success, she didn't even eat my birthday cupcakes! Or the Career-Social cupcakes from Buttercup Bakery. BUTTERCUP!!!!!!
I know how she feels. Although I'm not part of the Judeo-Christian tradition, I gave up ALL carbs for lent, which was a rough 40 days, but well worth it. Although it is still a few more days before I can eat LEAVENED carbs. Sigh.
