(Harmless) Rant

Some people (ahem...Francisco) don't like the fact that we get Sundays off from fasting during lent. PLUS, and even better, Sundays start on Saturday evening and go all the way till Monday morning.

I am a firm believer in the long Sunday and in using it to feast. We are not Puritans here, people--the day in which we most especially remember Christ dying and rising again is definitely a feast, even if it's in the middle of a long fast. And really, how can you get fasting right if you don't get feasting right?

Anyway, I'm not really one to talk since I'm under no lent-induced food restrictions. But I'd say that I'm in enough pregnancy-induced food restrictions that if I had the possibility of taking a day off and having a glass of wine and some sliced deli meet, I would do it in a heartbeat.
