Come out, come out wherever you are

Bish at Random Thoughts, whose lovely blog often features remembrances of growing up on a Caribbean island, has tagged me. The former teen-fishing-champ has tossed me some bait, in other words. Eeeeeek! I love word games and challenges so I'm going to play. But I shy from chain-letter thingies and I'm supposed to tag others, so here's my solution and your choice.
1) Consider yourself tagged and write the Q&A on your blog, leaving me a trail of chum.
2) Lurk to your heart's content. Remain untagged, and be assured no pestilence will plague you and your progeny.
3) Share a wicked comment on any of this.
Seven questions regarding seven deadly sins. Lying is highly recommended.
1) Pride--Q:What is your biggest contribution to the world? A: When I invented the Internet, I made possible all blogs and followers.
2) Envy--Q: What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours? A: The master list of followers.
3) Gluttony-- Q: What did you eat last night? A: Bread & water, but I spiced it with Literary Food Porn.
4) Lust--Q: What really lights your fire? A: A good e-book. I'm not lying. Really.
5) Anger--Q:What is the last thing that really pissed you off? A: A bad e-book. (See above).
6) Greed--Q: Name something you hoard and keep from others. A: First edition "Will the Bard and his Seven Secrets of Success or How to Extend Your Shelf Life by Centuries."
7) Sloth--Q: What's the laziest thing you ever did? A: Refused to answer question #7.

LOL! Thanks for playing. (Check my blog tomorrow,Monday, I am passing on an AWARD!)

Of course I had to go check out that Literary Food Porn link. Great stuff. Just about anything to do with food is good.

Corey: There are some things you just can't brag about....;-)

I love those questions! I'd like to consider myself tagged and borrow shamelessly and post them as tomorrow's question of the day.

Thank you!

Fun, fun, fun! I got tagged and need to do this!

Suzanne and PJ: Cool! I'll check your blogs to see what you do with it. *smiling ear-to-ear*

Invented the Internet? Congrats. I invented all things on the Internet. Including blogging, posting, commenting, tweeting and generally just e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. *smiles* Great post.

Okay, I'll play. I loved your answers but don't know if I'll lie or tell the truth.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Thank you for the very clever link! Sometimes reading the blog actually makes me feel full, it's bizarre.

Hi Fatima,
Thanks for stopping by. I love your blog and the incredible deliciousness of finding descriptions of food drawn in such succulent detail. Great idea. I can understand how you might feel full! When I was reading "The Secret Life of Bees," I kept running to the kitchen for spoonsful of honey. Couldn't help myself.
