Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging


Crocagator Heh. Heh. Heh. I am Crocagator, your dog-toy-in-the-house-reporter. Our question today is: What are you giving up for Lent? We gonna ask some of these dog toys and knick-knacks this probing kweshin.




Crocagator Heh. Heh. Heh. Hello, big red thing. And who are you?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Hello, I am Red Mr. Peanut Bank. How are you this fine evening?
Crocagator Heh. Heh. Heh. I am fine. Gotta kweshin: What are you giving up for Lent?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, as a plastic toy manufactured to hold coins, I'm not really called to repentance or penitence or fasting, but, as a plastic toy manufactured to hold coins living in the house of a priest, I must admit that the peer pressure is great, so I shall be giving up chocolate for Lent.
Crocagator Heh. Heh. Heh. Is that gonna be tuff for you? I mean, do you just luvs yer chocolate?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, I've never actually HAD any chocolate; I'm a plastic toy manufactured to hold coins, so I can't really eat anything. But, I hear that giving up chocolate for Lent is The Thing To Do, so I shall do so. Also, I shall give up paying any attention to Joe the Plumber and his ilk.
Crocagator Heh. Heh. Heh. Okay, Thanks. Goodbye.
Red Mr. Peanut Bank No, no, no, thank YOU!

I will be giving up Show Tunes for Lent. Oh, and I won't pay attention to Joe the Plumber and his ilk.

I think some by-bul guy called Mat-you tole me to go pray in my room and to wash my face when I fast and not tell evy-one the probing ansahs to the kweshins.

But anyways I will tell you that I am not drunk on wine because I am not drinking any until Jesus is O-U-T of that sepliquor thing.

No liquor for him, none for me. Plus some other stuff.

My verification word is dierab. Poor Bunrab! *sob*

I'm a plastic toy manufactured to hold coins, so I can't really eat anything.

Red Mr. Peanut Bank, you can eat coins, in a manner of speaking. Just sayin'.

See you characters after Easter!

Instead of giving up something for Lent, I'm doing something positive - attending our Thursday Evensong services, after which we have soup and sandwiches and a class. You could say that I'm giving up Thursday evenings at home.

Well, since Miss EHOL already spilled the beans on my hot sauce, I guess I had also better give up Joe the Plumber and his ilk!

Fred Schwartz said...

The one thing I am going to give up for Lent is listening to 1980's music. Sorry, it is going to be difficult, maybe if I spend more time in prayer and meditation I will not notice that I have given it up. Oh, and listening to Joe the Plumber and his elk. Never did have much use for elk anyway.

I'm trying to think about the Daily Office lessons during Lent. In order to do that I must be giving up something else to make room for this but I have no idea what it is. (I suppose that constitutes an indirect confession that I don't normally pray the Office - unless one counts the extremely brief forms I do by heart when waking up and going to bed.)

Paul, that's exactly what I do, and I count it. If I can count it, you can count it - not meaning to get in the way of your doing the "real" Daily Office, love.

Stress. I'm giving up stress for Lent.

I'm serious. Being mindful about my inner reactions to all the outside stressors in my life, being attentive to my breathing, allowing God to reach me in peace and joy. Trying not to be reactive or to live in emergency mode. It's a gentle practice, which is what I need right now. I can see its effects a little already.

How can Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love give up show tunes for such a long time? That is a huge sacrifice for her.

Caminante said...

Is crocagator suppozed to represent the former presdint with his 'heh, heh, heh'?

johnieb said...

Being self-abusive. Also wine.

I gave up on Joe the Plumber and his ilk in 1964: one of the few fasts that stuck.

I See You!
