to tell us what you're working on, share your show & tell, vent, whatever you want...
...this is an open thread. Nothing is off topic.
TODAY'S COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION FEATURE:
Tell us your guilty vices and pleasures.
Sunday is the perfect day to confess to us all of your guilty vices and/or pleasures.
Par exemple, les Se7en deadly sins: gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, pride, lust, and envy? Of how many will you confess?
I'll go first.
- VICES -
I have an addiction to expensive cabernet. I also like pinot noir, malbec, tempranillo, most French, Italian, Spanish and Chilean reds. Not wild about sweet wine like zinfandel or syrahs, although I like inky petite syrahs. That said, I do miss the lovely, peppery Helen Turley zinfandels from decades ago, not sweet at all, light and truly elegant.
I will overindulge in food. French fries, potato chips and fried calamari are at the top of the list. I've been known to eat my weight in tortilla chips and guacamole. I must have rare beef or lamb several times a week to build muscle. Fortunately, desserts do nothing for me. I can easily resist them. Except for E. Guittard's, 91% cacao, extra dark chocolate bar called Nocturne.
Filed under sloth:
I love to sleep in, or lay in my bed with my laptop and surf until it's time to go to sleep again.
Filed under greed:
I like to hog the best bike at my athletic club.
Filed under lust:
Um... iliac crests.
Filed under pride:
Aw come on....... It's hard being a DIVA.
- PLEASURES -
I like to go 70-80 in a 55 on steep freeway near my house, weaving in and out of the slow moving cars.
I'm on DKos almost 24/7 365.
I like Barry Manilow.
YOUR TURN: What are your guilty vices and pleasures?
