Vices and Maturity

I love Merriam-Webster's definition of the word.

Main Entry: vice
Function: noun
1 : a moral fault or failing
3 : immoral activity (as prostitution)

What are my vices?

Currently, making it a habit to drop my messenger bag on the floor (even if I know I should put it in the coat closet) and checking my email before I make a pit stop at the loo.

I, too, am addicted to coffee. And Smirnoff Ice (any flavor) or Mike's Hard Lemonade. Or any hard liquor. Screw it, I like almost anything considered alcohol with the exception of Scotch, Colt 45, and cheap/near beer. I am a beer snob. Since Germany, I'll only consume Heifeweissen or Kristalweissen. I'll drink a Corona only if it's lime (not lemon) in it.

I have this habit of voraciously reading anything that resembles a gossip rag (including The Star) and commenting on it on my blog.

Vice: buying CDs even though I know it's cheaper to buy the individual songs I like off of iTunes. However, I end up buying more songs this way rather than taking the time to actually walk the CD aisles of Circuit City or CD Warehouse to get the albums I like. Honestly, I can't help it!

I don't have a lot of vices, especially now that I'm older. Sure, I used to be a kissing whore. I dated a lot (not slept with them, mind you). I used to party all night (sometimes, not going to bed until 6 am) but those were the good old days when I was under the age of 25, had a smoking hot bod and wasn't married.

So, if the number of your vices go down, is that technically called "maturing"?

Is it considered mature that I am doing the happy dance when my co-worker also known as Beeyotch had been out for almost 3 weeks and I've enjoyed work immensely? I am dreading the day she actually comes back to work. I know that a lot of people are also enjoying the silence. Time's going to dictate her return and we know our days are numbered.

Is it considered mature to do the cabbage patch when you've finished doing your work load and the rest of your co-workers are still armpit deep in work?

Things I end up pondering at midnight.

If you haven't done so, read Amy's post in regards to Reviewing Guidelines on FF. It's courtesy. It's plain manners. Follow it.

Well, I'm headed to Amy's new post. Still waiting for K to update her blog and stories since her brother decided to change their internet connection from cable to Wi-Fi.

I guess I just have to bug her some other way.

Anyway, I'm going to try and write another chappie on MNT before my marathon work days start (1200 tomorrow)! We'll see how it goes.

Don't blame me if nothing makes sense.

Hmm. Well, I have the vices. I might do a blog on it, inspired by you! As for your vices--I'm all about the German beer as well. Franzinkaner is my FAV. I 'started' drinking over there, really. I was sixteen. What can I say?
And if I ever get so mature that I never do a happy Snoopy dance (My bro and I do the twins from the Peanuts cartoons, the ones that shift their heads from shoulder to shoulder while jumping in place? Yep, we're quite a pair), then I want to be shot.
Thanks for the mention. I thought my rules were fair. Maybe they could be adopted and the world would be a better place. :)
I'm looking forward to a MNT update, and don't work too hard!

Are you writing more MNT just to bug me? I don't know whether to swat you or hug you for making me feel special!

I'm still having problems, since I sort of vented to my mother about the WiFi in my room and she got mad and yelled at me. And said that if she finds even on piece of plastic wifi guts on the road, she'll do the same to my modem. And she's a redhead, so she'll do it too. The temper, you know.

I just posted my own list of vices. Go check it out!
