Day 1 – Thursday, March 6th

While I was making our morning coffee, when I went to grab the half-and-half I noticed that the bacon was missing from the refrigerator.  When I opened the freezer, I found the bacon there – it appears that my girlfriend Susan is freezing the bacon until Easter… God bless her.  (Whoops – was that blasphemous?  I shouldn’t ask God to bless anything during Lent I guess).  Then I realized there was some King cake left from our Fat Tuesday celebration, so I proceeded to have a slice of the sugary sweet pastry – nice, but not the same as my beloved salty but scrumptious bacon.

Publix-brand King cake with way too many plastic baby Jesuses (is that plural of "Jesus"?)

While browsing Twitter today, I discovered a wonder invention from the Oscar Meyer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon – a device that plugs into your iPhone and turns it into a bacon scent alarm clock.  They aren’t for sale – only 4700 made and you have to be chosen to receive one.  I didn’t win today, but I’ll definitely try tomorrow.  After all, I gave up bacon for Lent but said nothing about giving up smelling an artificial bacon scent in the morning.
