The Seven Deadly Sins Meme.......

I'm not a big fan of memes, but I found this one intriguing. Besides, it's much more interesting than writing about how many sun-filled activities I tried to pack into one day yesterday, or about how for the first time in two (or three?) years I was able to zip up my life jacket. Only I think they're called Personal Flotation Devices now, because everything has to have letters these days, and LJ doesn't have the same zing that a PFD does.

I stole this one from Evil Pixie, who stole it from Sunday Stealing.

Here goes.

Pride. Seven great things about yourself.
  1. I have a good sense of humor.
  2. I can write pretty well.
  3. I know my grammar and spelling.
  4. I can sing.
  5. I'm a loyal friend.
  6. I'm competitive, but mostly against myself.
  7. I can be insanely happy all by myself. (But I love other people too.)

Envy. Seven things you lack and covet.
  1. Season tickets for football
  2. Straight hair
  3. A good figure.
  4. Fifteen pounds of miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (guess this doesn't go with #3)
  5. Frequent flier miles
  6. A degree in math.

Wrath. Seven things that piss you off.
  1. Injustice
  2. Intolerance
  3. Insecurity
  4. Dependence
  5. Homeowner's insurance that just jumped from $400 to $700
  6. Not being able to sleep
  7. Learned helplessness

Sloth. Seven things you neglect to do.
  1. Housework
  2. Balancing the checkbook(s)
  3. Filing papers at school
  4. Prepare lunch the night before (but I did tonight)
  5. Routine mending of clothing (hems, buttons)
  6. The Great Shoe Purge
  7. Grocery shop (more a matter of procrastination than neglect)

Greed. Seven worldly material desires.
  1. A convertible BMW
  2. A color laser printer
  3. A bigger Harley. With a windshield. Is that two things?
  4. A triple bicycle
  5. A new house with real closets. And a garage.
  6. Twenty acres of land
  7. A jacuzzi
Gluttony. Seven guilty pleasures.
  1. Mario Brothers on the Wii
  2. Hours and hours of reading
  3. Crock pot candy
  4. Floating in the pool
  5. Really hot showers
  6. Quiet time
  7. Listening to the same song over and over in the car

Lust. Seven love secrets.
  1. Yeah........ No

Hahahaha! I was reading your lists and kept saying "Yeah... Oh, exactly!... That's totally me!... Yep!..." I even had the serious, deep-in-thought expression. Then I got to the last category and totally cracked up laughing.

Excellent list! :)

I'm intrigued. Please elaborate on crock pot candy!

Glad you don't have a math degree since you only listed 6 things@

Frogger - I didn't realize I only had 6 until I published it. Then I saw that it came right after something about a math degree, and I just HAD to leave it that way.

Hope you're feeling better.

Kelly - I will post the recipe for crock pot candy tomorrow night. It's to die for!
