Guilty as Sin
The 7 Deadly Sins:
I know I'm guilty of pretty much everything on that list at least once a day. Sloth is probably my weakest area, followed most closely perhaps by Anger. Gluttony is a problem on those days when I'm really stressed and tend to binge on comfort foods. I'm really, really pleased to say that I'm rarely guilty of Envy, Lust, Greed, or Pride. That's not prideful of me to say, is it? Okay, I'm rarely guilty of most of those items. I'll leave it up to your imagination to figure out which one(s) can reach out and grab me.
Things tend to change at warp speed. You don't have to study a lot of woo-woo science to know that. Sometimes, change is good; other times, not so much. When changes are for the better, though, it can be uplifting; indeed, life-changing. Of course, the not so good changes are also life-altering. When that unfolds in a good way, it's a very good thing. The key is to find a balance between the two and, no matter what happens, make the best of it. When your Yin counter-balances your Yang, life is good and your Feng Shui is pretty near perfect. That ain't no small potatoes.
My Feng Shui (or maybe it's my Yin) needs work. I'm going to try to go and sin a little less (although what I consider sin doesn't necessarily agree with your friendly neighborhood preacher's opinion) and ignore that little voice in my head singing, "If you wanna get to heaven, you gotta raise a little hell." Oops, I think I just sinned a tad. I may have told a little lie. No way am I going to ignore that little voice! A little hell-raisin' never hurt anybody.
Here's some hell-raising blasfomys that TWISTED LINGUISTICS dug up for your Thursday pleasure.
scarry, isn't it? - What an insensitive person might ask an accident victim.
actiley - When cornered, make like a piece of tile.
aggrogrant - Money handed out to arrogant serfs to convince them to grow more crops.
the gaul to ask pertinant questions - Inquisition by an illiterate Frenchman.
can I get some feet back on this point?
