Day 1 - Gluttony

Seeing as there are 7 days till the biggest commercially corupt non-denominational gift giving day of the year (read: Christmas), I decided to do a post every day along the lines of the Seven Deadly Sins. You can chalk this up to my being bored, and listening to far too much Flogging Molly.

Today's sin: Gluttony (Latin, gula).

We had our department's Christmas lunch today. Two hours of decent food with not so great service, followed by highly overpriced desert ($7 for a slice of cheesecake!). I are a fair bit of the nachos we had to start, then ate most of my caesar and only some of the lasagna I had. To top it off, I got the traditional cheesecake with caramel drizzle. The nachos were a tad over-cooked for my liking, the caesar was a bit dry, the lasagna was too spicy for my liking, but the cheesecake was sooooo rice and wonderful. The best part was that I didn't pay for it. Also, it was an extra hour on my lunch break that I'm not getting paid for. I spent the afternoon feeling overstuffed and wanting to just go to bed. All in all it was a good lunch with people I like.

I give the day an 8/10 for Gluttony.

-Cheers and happy Gluttoning!

I'm going to pre-emptivly give myself a 5/10 on gluttony because it's noon and I havn't gotten out of bed, I'm envisioning a light lunch, but I am going out for dinner tonight and probably getting some snack at the hockey game.
