Welcome to the Seven Sins and de-lurking week! It’s a seven-day contest, with a chance each day to win a copy of DEMON ANGEL. Here’s how it works: comment on any one of the seven sins, or confess your own weakness, lurker or regular or first-time-visitor — and at the end of the day on January 1st (at 11:59 pm exactly) I’ll choose seven winners by random drawing: one commenter from each post.
The fourth sin is GREED.
I think that greed gets a bad rap. I mean, it’s like the pursuit of happiness…taken to an extreme, okay, but STILL!
Here are things I want:
PILES AND PILES OF MONEY (it’s okay if the piles are coins, because I’ve seen those neat coin-converting-to-bills machines in my local supermarket) so that I can:
BUY OODLES AND OODLES OF BOOKS (oodles)
HIRE A HOUSEKEEPER (I really need one, and I won’t pay her much)
TRAVEL MORE OFTEN (with my entourage of masseuses)
And I want it all to come to me without any work, so I plan to win the lottery sometime soon. Er, but you have to buy a ticket for that, right? Dammit! I’m way too cheap for that.
I obviously am not very good at being greedy, because I’m an author. And the things that I really want — to write great books, crap like that … I have to keep working for. GODDAMN YOU CRUEL, CRUEL WORLD!! I WANT MY HOUSEKEEPER AND MONEY AND MASSEUSES!
Link of the Day: This guy from Nigeria has a bunch of money sitting in an account that you can have, if you’ll just send him a little bit to help him transfer it to your account…
