Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

TMI Tuesday - 7 Deadly Sins Edition!

1. LUST: Besides your current Significant Other who do you lust for or have you lusted for?

Wow, where do I begin? PIC (duh), SCM, Ed, a total hottie at church, ATLLG, SM, Colin Farrell, Wes Bentley, Mr. Troll (he has very sexy hands and shoulders - that's all I've seen of him), Old Knudsen (it's the cap, don'tcha know?), Charlie, Stealth, and all the hot guys in the bloggy world. If I didn't mention you by name, don't fret - I lust for you, believe me.

2. GLUTTONY: What food brings out your inner glutton?

Pasta, with butter, fresh garlic, freshly shredded parmesan, and course ground black pepper. Yummo!

3. GREED: What are you greedy for?

Sex - I never get enough.

4. SLOTH: What is your plan for an ideal day of sloth?

A good book and no kids!

5. WRATH: Describe a time that you let out a can of whoop ass on someone.

Does screaming at my children and spanking the little one count? Then that happens almost daily (at least the screaming and the threat of a spanking).

Most of my ass-kicking was done in a courtroom. I've only lost one trial, ever. Granted, most cases don't go all the way through to a trial, but I'm 37-1 for cases that have gotten to trial (most cases settle without a trial and I had quite a few that I felt I would have lost bad had they not settled). That one that I lost was a very weak case to begin with - a misdemeanor stalking prosecution. It was someone else's case that I took over at the very last minute because she had another trial scheduled at the same time. She even said this was a lame case and not to be surprised if we lose it. My non-police witnesses changed their testimony at the last minute, essentially leaving us with no chance of proving our case beyond a reasonable doubt. The jury was right to come back with a not guilty verdict.

One of my favorite ass-whoopings was representing a client in a zoning dispute with her city. The city was just being unreasonable and charged her with a misdemeanor zoning violation. At the end of the trial, the judge told the city attorney that they were being completely ridiculous, harassing this fine, upstanding citizen and to just leave her alone. It was quite funny at the time. Even the lady's neighbors testified in her defense that even if she had violated the zoning ordinance, which no one thought she had, they loved the result and had no complaints. It was clear the zoning administrator had a bug up his butt about my client (small, small town) and this was just part of his vendetta.

6. ENVY: Who or what do you envy? Why?

I envy anyone in an loving, honest marriage.

7. PRIDE: Have you ever had to swallow your pride? What are you proud of?

I swallow my pride every time I put up with Spousehole's assholeishness. I am proud of my intelligence and education and I'm insanely proud of my kids. Current sources of pride: Boy was so composed and sweet riding his horsey buddy in front of a huge crowd at the rodeo on Saturday (he HATES crowds) and Girl basically potty-trained herself in the last 2 weeks.





Envy:Very Low

Lust:Very High


(Gluttony really should be higher, I think. Otherwise, how did I get this fat?)

I'm reading this eating pasta with parma ham, eggplant, basil, parmesan and lots of freshly ground black pepper (it's heavenly) :)

Polt said...

Wow...if I ever get into legal trouble, I'm looking you up! :)


Desmond Jones said...

Molly makes a pasta dish very similar to that, except she sautes the garlic in olive oil. Mmmmmmmm. . .

I'm sure I'll do time in Purgatory for all the yelling I've done at my kids. Much better in recent years, but man, I'd wish for a do-over on a few of 'em. . .

sandy shoes said...

Yay, potty training!

Me, I lust after movie stars and envy single people. I can't be bothered with real-world things any more.

Madame X said...

Hmm... I didn't even think of my job when it came to answering about wrath. I kick teenage butt all the time when school's in session. lol

I like to make angel hair pasta with garlic butter and a pepper medley spice I buy at a local store (it has a mix of black and red ground peppers in it) I add a touch of sea salt and then I crumble in a can of chunk yellowfin tuna in olive oil. Its likely the most fattening thing on earth and my heart will clog and stop any minute but until then - I am happily sated :-)

Shannon H. said...

I agree with your envy. But I question whether they are completely happy or if they are just turning a blind eye to things their spouse is doing?

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

I do loves me some good lawyers. :)

Of course, I also loves me some of that pasta. :)

I envy what you envy as well. The honesty, in particular.

Happy TMI.

Slick said...

At least I'm being lusted after....



Dammit, Bunny!

G-Man said...

Bunny...((((Big Hug))))

Vixen said...

Again with the pasta! Yummmm.......

SP said...

If I didn't mention you by name, don't fret - I lust for you, believe me.

well thanks, the lust is mutual, lol ;)

Edtime Stories said...

Quite a lust list...glad I made the cut for a mention.

Paul B said...

37 and 1...damn...I know who to look up if I'm ever in trouble!!!

Fun little quiz, eh? As a fellow lust lover I guess we will both be in a similar part of hell. :-) But as the philosopher Billy Joel said: I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.

The Troll said...

Thanks for the lust! You're a lot more sinful than I am, apparently.
I had all lows and medium scores.

The Troll said...

Gave you some link-love at the troll report today.

Stealth said...

I am absolutely flattered!!!
