Gluttony, Envy, and Lust: A Day in the Life of Sassy Sundry

Today is a Black Star of Nutritional Death Day for Sassy Sundry. In celebration of “Wind Down Week” (I call it Warehouse Liberation Week), the company provided us with doughnuts. In addition, today is also “Cake Day,” the day when the company celebrates the month’s birthdays with cake. The cake has lots of gooey-sweet frosting, and I fear that I will soon lapse into a coma. We also have toffee, popcorn, and various hard candies available for our tooth-endangering consumption. ‘Tis the season, I suppose. I see a diet looming in my future.

Ooomph. The frosting just hit. Just a minute; I need some water. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Ooooh, look! A bright light. Think I’ll take a little stroll toward it.

Hmph what? What was I saying, and what are all these wires doing attached to my body? Oh, yes. Bad nutrition. Best not think about it until after the holidays. Instead I’ll think about envy. Reading about Before Girl’s kitschy fireplace playing on her iPod has left me insanely envious. My little screen just looks so bleak. I love Uncle Tupelo, but I want fire.

So today I’m a glutton and a coveter. Oh, and I might be guilty of a little lust, too… PhilosopherPants (“pants” means “trousers” on this side of the pond, get yer mind out of the gutter) intrigues the hell out of me, and I’ll admit that my mind has wandered a bit. If I swap out gluttony for lust, would this improve things any?

What about you? Commit any deadly sins today?

Just all of 'em, as per …
Plus I denied God over at Knudsen's place, so all in all a pretty good day.

PhilosopherPants sounds intriguing. Your prurient fans await more. and wipe that doughnut sugar off your lips …

Hell-bound bloggers, we are. Santa is so going to leave us coal. I'll wipe the sugar off my lips when I fully regain consciousness.

Oh crap. You know damn good and well how I did on that one.

Interesting question, Sassy. I guess I would have to fess up to gluttony on some level, since I made all those damn Christmas cookies, and I ate most of them. I swore off wine a few weeks ago because I felt it was making me fat, but I'm back on the bottle, so there's that, what ever sin that might be.

Lust? Last night, I asked my daughter for a poster of Johnny Depp for Christmas so I could hang it on the wall and admire him any time I choose.

Dang! My beautiful comment was obliterated.

The Seven Deadly Sins (in no particular order) are:

Pride
Anger
Avarice
Lust
Gluttony
Sloth
Envy

So, gluttony pretty much covers the cookies and the wine. I suppose one coudl say avarice, but I think that avarice deals with money. Lust covers Johnny Depp, and I mean that in every possible connotaion. You have excellent taste in eye candy.

It was not my intention to deal with theology in this post, but I thought that I would make it mean something more than drivel about pigging out, petty jealousy about iPod fire, and boys.

I took the elevator rather than the stairs all day yesterday and the day before. One of these days, I'm going to get stuck in there, I know it.

That's the best you can do? Hee hee.
