Hey, that's me! I didn't know I looked so good. Wait. No, that's not me after all. Could be, though, if that cigarette were replaced with a chocolate bar.

There seems to be such little room for vice these days. It’s just sooooo politically incorrect.

I don’t think I have many.

Coffee: I do have high blood pressure and coffee does not mix well with my morning medication. But the afternoon, HA HA, the afternoon is all mine. I love some coffee then. I’ll get it where ever I can. And NO. I do not know if it is free trade or shade grown. Damn. That’s why it’s a vice, right?

Profanity. How I love profanity. I try to only use it when I think it fits. But sometimes it just fits too well. You would think I had worked on a ship during WWII.

Wine. Two glasses max (usually). Unless I’m driving, it’s two glasses minimum. Love it. If I restaurant doesn’t serve it, I don’t want to eat there. I like it red. I like it white. I like to know there are a lot of bottles in my basement ready to deploy on a second’s notice.

Magazines. There are so few of them these days. Its now all online. I don’t want my mags online. I want them printed out. I want to be able to look at pretty pictures whenever I want. If I look at magazines online, I can’t mix it with my other vices (except profanity). Hmmmm. Perhaps that could be my new vice. Drinking and internet surfing on the laptop. Risky! Dangerous! Fun!

So, I’m looking for a new vice or two. Any suggestions?


  1. i think you pretty much have the basics down. netflix streaming is my vice, as is listening to pandora. maybe that isn't a vice. i dunno.
    i'd say coffee is my number one, in the morning while doing all my internet netting. okay, bacon. bacon and cheese....with herbs sprinkled over it and cayenne pepper.

  2. Thank you for your visit. It's a pleasure to meet you.

    Another vice that has gone by the wayside is calling up people and hanging up. I don't know really, I agree with all of yours and there doesn't seem to be much left that isn't entirely too unsavory to mention or to even think about.

    Spitting maybe? But it doesn't appeal to me. I'll think about it.

  3. A new vice? Hmmm...let's see. I suggest eating in bed while using the airconditioner and the electric blanket at the same time. decadent!
    not that I'd ever do such a thing...nosirree. never.

  4. Melted cheese .... chocolate .... shopping for arty things .... internet .....
