    For the duration of Lent I am giving up Microsoft Windows outside of the work environment. It's the easy route, no way am I giving up booze or chocolate and so on!

    What are you giving up?

    What the hell is lent?

    and JK... You don't eat chips, all you eat is high protein organic waitrose. How else do you keep your ultra smooth skin?

    Annoying holiday events that try to make you give something up for no particular reason (arent you such a good person, cause you can not eat chocolate for a few weeks).

    Chocolate, apparently. I hardly ever eat the stuff, it's just as "solidarity" for the woman that sits next to me :rolleyes:
