    As the few sober citizens on here will know, following Pancake day is Ash Wednesday.

    I'm giving up on Arrse for Lent - and crisps - as my way of atoning for the manifold sins of this and previous lives.

    So, I'm unlikely to be on here to learn whether the Salisbury Crawl has actually fixed a date and location ?

    Take a deep breath you miserable SINNERS - what sinful carnal pleasure are you going to forego on the off chance you can cuff it past St Peter come the Day of Reckoning ? :)

    Lent finishes with Easter....can you last out ?
  2. Are you some kind of Papist?

    Off with you then.

  15. Don't believe so. 40 days. Lent is a middle English word meaning " springtime" or "growth". It's a period for self-reflection and many add a discipline of abstaining from alcohol or foodstuffs for the duration.
