My Seven Deadly Sins...

Being that I'm a Goth Mom (Lite), you might imagine me to be full of the swirling darkness that compels a soul to all sorts of depravity. If so, you'd be correct; in my heart, I harbor countless sins, yearning to break free. Dani of Entertaining Interests wants me to confess seven of them. (Well, strictly speaking, this meme seems to demand seven specific sins per each Deadly Sin which, if my mathematical skills—such as they are—serve me, makes for 49 sins. But as you may have already heard, I'm lazy as...well, sin. So you'll get one per category and like it, soldier.)

Pride
I've been told (by two different people) that I'm the possessor of a "smoldering sexuality" and "swagger." So, *W00F* is me.

Envy
I envy the hell outta chicks with preternaturally speedy metabolisms who can consume mass quantities of pizza, beer, and ice cream and never gain an ounce in the wrong place(s). Damn their svelte hides.

Wrath
Oh, where to begin, where to begin?! Lord, if it's not grammatical errors getting my goat, it's folks who saunter three or four-abreast on the sidewalk and don't get the fuck out of my way when I'm running late for work!!!!!!!!!!

*Ahem.* Where was I? Oh, yes; I was being sinful.

Sloth
Ha. Ha ha ha. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha...

Greed
Right now, my hot little hands want to wrap around the entire Brighton catalog.

Gluttony
I'd consume mass quantities of pizza, beer, and Häagen-Dazs Rocky Road ice cream if I had a preternaturally speedy metabolism. (The problem is, I've consumed these things without one.)

Lust
Well, similar to Greed, parts of me ache to wrap around something, only it's not my hands, nor do they long to go around jewelry. I feel I'd be at it like the proverbial rabbit if I had a partner who was ready, willing, and able to accommodate me. Say, it's gotten a bit hot in here, hasn't it? ::fans self::

And that's about as self-revealing as I'm prepared to be (while sober). (Which I am.) (Alas.)

OK, so I reckon I should tag seven other bloggers, perhaps some new-ish friends I've made, so I can become better acquainted with their dark sides. To that end, I tag (in alpha order, by first name or initials):









OK, folks, your mission is clear: spill it.
After all, confession is good for the soul...

    1. Glad to give the giggles (I believe there can't be too much giggling on a Monday). :-D

  3. Is it wrong that after simply seeing the word "sins", I swooped over here like a seagull after a hot French Fry?!! ;)

    1. Not "wrong" so much as "extremely telling." Emma, you're a Goth after me own heart, girl. ;-)

  4. Hey Mina!

    Aha and if those are your seven deadly sins, I say bring it on! Those folks who clog up the sidewalks do my head in. I get the urge to slap them around the head!

    Smokin' and mind them steamy windows :)

  8. Hahah! This was fun and I see I have many similar...issues..... and yes, you are the diva of "smoldering sexuality!" :D

  9. I'm one of those girls with a naturally speedy metabolism, so it's pizza without limits around here. On the other hand, I still make grammatical errors. I have an excuse though. I'm not a native speaker, so I have a longer learning curve :-)

    1. Well, you're a pretty kewl chick, so I'll forgive the metabolism business. :-)

  10. Yay! Thanks for taking part but I'm a little upset with your sloth side, however, I will take what I can get. Oh, you picked some great blogs to get to know better! I hope they post as well.

  12. How fun! I'm in!! Though I fear I won't be able to elicit nearly as many laughs as you did- these were hysterical! Thanks for tagging me- I'll work on getting my list up on the blog tomorrow!

  13. HAAA!! I LOVED your answer to sloth! And all the rest. Were we separated at birth? Because you've taken most of my answers.

    1. I do always feel I'm reading a kindred spirit's work when I check out your blog. :-)

  14. What a scintillating summary of sin!

    Although I must say: That did seem like a particularly energetic laugh for 'sloth' -- I'd expect more of a drowsy titter.

    (..and if those last two words raised either your eyebrows or your temperature, then allow me to feign surprise and offer a wink while apologizing for my innocent mistake...)

      There, that was the very least by way of amusement I could bestir myself to show. ;-P

  15. Oh Mina, you crack me up! I will not eat pizza or consume ice cream anywhere near you...although this metabolism is slowing down with but-in-chair syndrome and age.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Damned be those svelte bitches! I'm with you in at least half of your sins, so... do you think we could split the punishment??? Yeah, me neither.

    Great, fun post. =)

  18. Wait! LUST is a deadly sin??? Who thought that clunker up? I ENVY your ability to write funny and deep at the same time! Your blog is always fresh and surprising to me. And your productivity denies your SLOTH claim. Love popping in here periodically!

    1. Ah, well I thank you - my productivity waxes in some areas only to wane in others...I'm wanting to put out a mini-anthology this coming January, of three short stories, and have major editing to do for one of them...and feeling precious little energy to tackle the thing. ::sighs::

    Really only two people told you this? LOL
    You are too sweet and I'm there with you on the sloth!
    Cute blog tag - I'm just glad it wasn't me - how do you describe perfection! HAHAHAHAHA!

  21. Thanks again for the mention Madame Mina. You'll find your shiny new blog button up in the Study. Let me know if you approve.

  22. New follower, and yes, I got swept up in these seven sins, too. After I wrote mine down, I realised mine are rather lukewarm and I'm a little disappointed in myself. Thank you for visiting my steampunk blog!
