High Holiday

In honor of Yom Kippur I shall confess a few of my sins. While the Jews repent for their wrongdoings, Catholics merely blurt them out figuring that is good enough, lapsed Catholics simply eschew atonement, and the hardcore apostates use the whole process for blogging material. Here goes:
  • I really liked The Devil Wears Prada
  • I look up big words and then use them as if they are a part of my everday lexicon (I actually know that one, honest)
  • I cheated off an 8-year-old piano prodigy while taking a music theory exam when I was 17
  • I own and regularly watch more than one Meg Ryan movie
  • I have kicked a dog
  • I have taken food from a toddler because his snacks were better
  • I think that I am smarter than almost every person I speak to
  • I have lied in order to make a post-one night stand getaway
  • I have a hetero man-crush on Hugh Grant
  • I will forgive all manner of sins committed by a beautiful woman
  • I work out blog material in casual conversations with friends
  • I will slip "my band" into any conversation with a woman
  • I have peed in the shower
  • I sniff dirty laundry to determine its wearability
  • I own a Speedo

You own a Speedo?! There are not enough Hail Marys for you my friend. Godspeedo.

Its use is far more discrete than it seems; one would never see me in said Speedo but that does not alter the fact that I do indeed own a Speedo.

Rarely. I'll take that as a hint.

As long as you don't own You've Got Mail, everything can be forgiven.

I wish the real Yom Kippur was this easy. I had to go apologize to God for all sorts of stuff over the past 24 hours.

Who knew that scoffing and mocking were sins? Now I'm going to have to rethink my whole life philosophy.

[sigh] I can't help myself. I know the movie is terrible. The entire premise is a one large hypocritical contradiction but...I'm too ashamed to go on.

I feel for you Dara however while I had Confirmation, you and the Tribe got Bar/Bat Mitzvah. I got a Sony Sports Walkman while Mitzvah'ers cleaned up. Karma, baby.

Shamefully, I actually like "You've Got Mail."

I'm a sucker for it too. Damn you, Meg Ryan.

Forgive me father, for I have sinned...

I forgot to feed my cat one day last week;
I love American Idol;
I know all the words to the Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind;
I sing in the shower;
I am domestically challenged;
I adore brittney spears (or pre-Kfed at least);
I can't live without yellow jellybeans

If it weren't for the way they read their emails out loud while they typed them, I think I would be okay with the movie. It just drives me crazy.
