    Oh, Kiton....why does thou tempt me..... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3901148743 Jeez, someone buy this before I get weak. Still with the $3800 tag on it. Gave up purchasing new clothing for lent; this also means I'll be postponing getting some new shoes (edward green, i hope.). How long does Lent last, again??

    Hey, it's the same jacket I saw in Esquire and drooled over. Of course the picture only showed the shoulder

    Depending on who you talk to, Lent ends on either Good Friday or Easter Sunday. I must say, you're making an admirable sacrifice...

    Only problem is, it's ugly.

    That's a huge sacrifice, but it sounds like a good excuse for me to try my best to attempt the same. I gave up religion a few years ago, but maybe i'll be Catholic again for a month [​IMG]

    This is going to sound pretty stupid, but one of the most pleasant memories I have from my childhood was the day I realized that Sunday's were not part of the 40 days of lent. It sure made it a lot easier to give up things for only 6 days.

    SO BID ON SUNDAY.....

    I didn't give anything up this year. I feel deprived enough after trying to watch what I eat. Although giving up buying clothing would sure be something I could do to challenge myself. Alas, I MUST make a few purchases in Paris next week.

    I was just about to mention this.  Some people keep their sacrifices for the duration of the Lenten season (including Sundays), but Foxx -- if you don't count Sundays into the 40 days, get online this Sunday, haha.
