The things I find and the thoughts I have.
Anonymous asked: i don't know how religious you are, but re: lent i think god would prefer that you take care of yourself and respect/worship him in the way that you're able to at the moment rather than risk your health to prove a point (pushing yourself like that might be too close to being prideful, if it helps you to think of it like that). whatever you decide, it's good that you're recognizing you need three meals. hang in there!
Aw man this is actually too sweet and thoughtful.
I haven’t planned anything specifically and I’ll see what my schedule is kind of looking like through Lent. If fasting looks like it’ll be too much of a physical strain for me.
But it means a lot that you’re thinking of me. <3
If you’re going to do a fast, go the traditional route. No food, and only drink water until sundown. Or set an amount of time up (8-12 hours) and follow the above.
yep. That’s how I do it. sun up to sundown nothing but water. but I have to eat 3 meals a day (I promised my therapist) so that means getting up at 5-something to make breakfast.
"Hey Lent is all about sacrifices." Says the girl who was looking at a ministerial career.
Yeah but I’d rather not trigger another spiral of disordered eating or fucking with my sleep schedule too badly that triggers my mood to also spiral. I’m actually in a precarious position.
Doesn’t the Bible specifically exempt people with health concerns? Surely there are healthier things you could sacrifice! Tumblr, maybe?
According to the Roman Catholic Church a fast is one meal and two snacks a day, iirc, and people with health issues that preclude fasting are exempted according to canon law. (Also children, the elderly, etc.) karmakaiser, am I getting this right?
If you are Catholic and live in the US or UK then fasting is not compulsory for anyone throughout Lent.Only on Ash Wednesday & Good Friday. If you have a different bishops conference or are under a different denomination then the rules are different. However, I’m pretty sure that you are exempted if you have a medical reason.And I am even surer that eating normally when you are in therapy for an eating disorder is actually a bigger sacrifice than fasting.

At Sundae’s Custom Adult Gift Baskets, your sexily ever after is guaranteed — by me, Essie Sundae.
Bet you’re wondering how I can make that promise, aren’t you? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. It’s a trade secret. Patented. Black ops. A secret formula. Cliche ad nauseam. The truth is, I can’t tell you, because I don’t know how I do it. I just do. Some people have a knack…

Earlier today I posted about the promo card left developed to promote the Austin based Capital Comic Con. Here’s another look at the card.
I reached out to the contact on their web site, Aaron Luevano who told me by email that he was aware of the card and approved it telling me”I asked before it was designed, many approved.”
A reader also posted about the promo card on the Facebook page for the convention and she sent me the response she got:
"I have to wonder if you’ve even been to a comic con."
So that’s it. They did it. They admit it. They think it’s funny. And when a woman calls them out on it they snidely dismiss it.
Once again that’s the Capital Comic Con of Austin, Texas.
Typical example of why comics have such an uphill struggle when it comes to being taken as anything but adolescent spank fodder.
Example of why 15 years of SDCC and I STILL got fake geek girled.@2 days ago with 1663 notes
