the post of 7 sins

"Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this Meme, lie to me. Then tag 7 other folks (one for each deadly sin) and hope they can lie."

tagged me for this one. I am trying to figure out why. I am not funny and I don't like to lie, unless I have a good reason for it or I just think the truth doesn't sound right.

Anyway, here are my answers...

Pride: What is your biggest contribution to the world?

My biggest contribution to the world would have to be the internet. It was during my tenure in congress that I took the initiative to pass legislation to invent the internet.

Envy: What do your coworkers wish they had which is yours?

When I worked with people they were jealous of my yard. The way I have to mow it every week and the lovely shade of dandelion yellow it turns every spring. Others wished they had my ability to make up words while dealing with mechanical things.

Gluttony: What did you eat last night?

I made a delicious meal of leftovers with some new food thrown underneath for texture.

Lust: What really lights your fire?

I like to use a kindling of small sticks and those lighters that are long with the electronic clicker. Then put the larger pieces of kindling on top and finally the logs that you will roast the marshmallows with.

Anger: What is the last thing that really pissed you off?

People talking in movies. even worse, people having conversations with the actors in the movies. I could tell you about the woman yelling at Wesley Snipes while we were watching Blade.

Greed: Name something you keep from others.

My credit card information. That would be silly to give to others. I don't know you.

Sloth: What's the laziest thing you've ever done?

Nothing. What is lazier than that?

Well, that was fun. For the next people to do this (and you don't have to if you don't want to. You can be slothful- really, its okay) I pick Cate, Aaron, Jameson, Barry, and BT.

Now, go forth and enjoy the weekend. Happy Friday everyone!

Cate Gardner said...

Ooh, goody! I'm being commanded to lie, I think I'm going to enjoy this.

Fox Lee said...

Happy Friday! : )

Jamie Eyberg said...

Cate- I think it is built into the writer DNA. ;)

Nat- Happy Friday! *raises a bottle*

dude thanks for the internet. it rocks.

i'm thinking of throwing poison on my yard. my landowner cannot find out. as god is my witness, i will never mow the yard again!

Unknown said...

Hey, the thing about the movie is TRUE. You didn't lie. Now, it makes me wonder about the rest...

When we went to see Blade at the midnight showing, some crazy people had their baby with them. Le sigh.

As for why I tagged you... you're not funny? Uh oh. I guess I should stop chuckling then.

Happy Friday to you too! Even if it's Sunday...the folks who bug me in movies are the ones flipping open their phones and texting to people.

ps. thanks for passing legislation on the internet. People now have something to do on a Saturday night.
