Just a peak into my life

I'm working night shift right now, and Riddick is working days. And because of the distance that each of us commutes and the different start times, we do not see each other at all for three days.

Yes that's right I said, THREE DAYS!

It's hell, utter newly wed, no sex hell.

So a moment ago I texted Riddick and said "Talk to me, I'm lonely"

Riddick's reply: "I'm sweating like a fat girl writing her first love letter"

Just a peak into my life

Once upon a time she took a trip to Lovejoy

I'm adopted. I was adopted privately, some would call it a "gray market" adoption because I wasn't sold, and it was legal, but I was never a ward of the state.

And than the show just went on to say that 200 years later Pope Gregory I shortened the list to 7.

Well that just wasn't enough for me, I had to know what sin fell off the list.

So off to the internet I went, because we all know that all things you read on the internet are true (large wink and sarcasm here)

Surprisingly Pope Greg removed......wait for it....
FORNICATION

That's right the original 8 were:
Gluttony
Fornication/Lust
Greed
Despair
Wrath
Acedia
Vainglory
Pride

Pope Gregory removed Fornication, folded despair in with Acedia, changing vainglory to pride and adding envy, to come up with what we have now.
Gluttony
Greed
Wrath
Envy
Pride
Sloth (Acedia)
Extravagance

So there you have it. According to Pope Gregory, Lust and fornication, fornication being def…
