One of my friends used to eat puddings only during Lent, on the grounds that he was denying himself the pleasures of self-denial. I don’t know if he still does this, but it seemed to me to be a very good idea.

Ash Wednesday is usually a good time for a commination, so if there’s anyone you especially want to curse, please pop your nominations into the comments, and we’ll see what a jealous, vengeful, righteous and wrathful God can deliver over the coming year.
