Read more

Well yesterday was the end of carnaval, which makes today the beginning of Lent. Since the Remezcla staff isn’t exactly known for its moral rectitude, we’ve got a lot of sacrificing to do.

40 days without our favorite things? Yeah, we can do that.

“When I was a kid I used to give up white rice. I used to love it. It was crazy because then i would be eating red beans on top of lettuce for 40 days. If i had to give up something that i really love/crave and eat consistently nowadays it would have to be meat or cheese. Is that for a write up or did i just give u too much info?”

I normally give up sugar in my coffee which makes me give up coffee all together; and thus unleashing sleepy Veronica. This year however I’m going to give up candy bars (I am currently chewing on a Twix) so get ready; you’re about to meet irreparably cranky Veronica…you’re welcome.

What are YOU giving up?
