Seven Deadly Sins

Time to reveal more personal facts. When I saw this clever idea over here and here, I couldn't help but steal it. (Isn't the play with logos clever and fun?)

No such thing as uncomfortable silences

Animal cruelty

What about your "7 deadly sins"? Any thoughts?


  1. grrrr, I can't stand cigarette smoke or dishonesty or animal cruelty either! Good on you for tackling this post!

  2. oh Juanita .. you are the max !!! I loved what I read and agree (wel mostly, wel especially on the kitchenware :-))
    and of course the retina's !

  3. Loved it!!!!!! ;) We seem to have LOTS in common hehehe! ;) I need to re-learn how to drive too LOL! ;D And SO much more we share!

  4. Love the FB, Ebay and Twitter logos!
    (I don't know the other ones ha ha..)
    Dishonesty and rudeness make me very angry!
    Lust..what is love?!
    Envy..perfect breathing, travelling/holidaying.

  5. Oh!!! What a great post! I must do when I get a moment spare- works gone a bit hectic mental!! xxx

  6. Haha this is a good one! I might copy and write out a list on my blog also, if that's ok? :D
    I hope I'm not in the category of "people prying about certain topics" whenever I email you. Smoke irritates me too, as I'm sure you know already. I always complain about that in Zurich. I hear you about animal cruelty too.
    I also envy those with musical skill... oh so many things in common.

  7. What a great post idea. I wish I had perfect vision too.

  8. What I wouldn't give for perfect vision - oh for a life free of glasses and contact lenses!

  9. This is amazing! really really clever, specially pride and envy!
