Seven Sins in Seven Days: The Final Sin

Hello ScoFans!

Well, I made it. A post every day for a whole week. It was hard work, but here we are... the final sin. The sin ScoMan is most guilty of.

How well do you know your cardinal sins? Do you already know which sin it is? Have you looked it up on Wikipedia since yesterday to try and get a "sneak peek" of what's coming up? (it serves my ego great joy to think that people care enough about my blog to research upcoming posts.)

Speaking of serving my ego great joy, my ego is served not only by the thought of people researching my posts, but also by the thought of people remembering something I wrote MOTHS ago. The 24th of March this year to be exact.. when I had to list seven things I loved. Remember? Do you remember when I said.. these words...

7 - I love the new intern, Denise, on Scrubs. If she were a real person, I may just give up my asexual ways for her and her "girl balls". I fell in love with her when she said her patients disease was "kind of a buzzkill"
6 - I love pizza. I could eat that all day and never feel full.
5 - I love the sharemarket. It's interesting to watch what sets people into a panic, what brings back their confidence and the different reports from different companies and what they do to the share price.
4 - I love music. I remember having to play the guitar for a high school assignment and the teacher saying I have a gift for it, but I never took it up. And then we had some other test thing a few years later and the teacher said I had an ear for music and would find playing an instrument easy and wanted me in the band, but I never did it. I couldn't be bothered.
3 - As strange as it sounds, I love spinning into Matt. It's interesting to have a whole new thought process, a whole new outlook and to feel that sort of emotion to its fullest.
2 - I love seeing celebrities who have it all fuck up and walk away with nothing. I think of it as a case of "easy come, easy go"
1 - I love ... number one can wait. I will unveil it with my 100th blog. Something has happened I thought would never happen. I've fallen in love, and posting things I love felt like a good place to share that news with you. (And I know some of you considered me a tease for playing games and not sharing a picture so far.. I think you will probably be pissed with waiting 5 or so weeks for this as well)
So my seventh sin and my one true love. The two are interrelated. Let's explore that now.. through video...

In almost every list Pride (Latin, superbia), or hubris, is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God). Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor."

Yes ScoFans, my deadliest sin is PRIDE.

For starters, when I told my brother I was going to do a video for YouTube of that song (which is "Head Over Heels" by Australian comedians Lano & Woodley.. and I never did do that video. The one above is the only copy) he said "That song should be your anthem. It's you word for word", so when even your own family is against you what hope do you have?

Not only that but all week- ALL WEEK -when I've been supposed to be telling you about the evil things I've done, I've been sure to mention to you all how awesome I am as well. In fact, I don't think a post goes by without me making sure you all realise how awesome I am.

I am incredibly stubborn. I will never admit I was wrong. I very rarely reach out to people because.. you guessed it, I'm awesome, and I think they should reach out to me. And even if they do, it's not very often I welcome them with open arms.

So there you have it, my seven sins in one week. Now you all know me a little better. You're aware of my shortcomings and my failings.

I also just took a quiz on Facebook.. "What job will you have in the afterlife?" and my result.. receptionist. Why am I tell you this? Because I think it caps off the theme of the week nicely..

You are both good and bad- stuck in between hell and heaven. You have an important job though, when someone dies you must decide where they go after life!

Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I love me so very.. VERY much.

I guess there's no harm in dishing of my Facebook link now as well.. http://www.facebook.com/thisisScoMan

  2. Ooh finally I can comment! Yay! Your naughty blog has been freezing my screen. What sin would that come under?

    Anyway. I knew the last one was going to be pride! I know my deadly sins, me. By the way, have you seen the film 'Seven'? It's good.

    I don't know what sin I'm most guilty of. Maybe lust. Or sloth - even though I'm quite active I can be lazy at times.

    Oh and great vid btw - the hood finally came off! Even though the glasses stayed on. Does that Facebook link mean we're actually allowed to add you now?

  6. I took the same FB quiz as the hillbilly and I got the same result: pride. Looks like we're all going to hell in a handbasket together on this one.

  9. I figured after following you on Twitter I should hop on over and check out your blog. I'll have to catch up on the other 6 sins!

  10. la la la LUV that video! The timing of the sunglass tilt was perfect. :) And what a pleasant surprise to see what you look like!! It's always nice to see WHO is writing what they're writing. :)

    I'm not sure which sin I'm most guilty of - pride could very possibly be in the top 3 ... and as I said in the other comments - it looks like I'll be doing a little evaluating.

    And even though you already know you are awesome - please allow me to share that you have reached new levels of awesome with this series of posts because at least for me - it's prompted me to do some self-evaluation and you've inspired me to work on being better. Thanks!!!
