7 Deadly Sins

Give in to it

Ah…now this gives me a fair bit of nostalgia. The Magnum 7 Deadly
Sins ice cream came out about a year ago and I wrote about it in one of my first few posts
[monash.edu.au]. You have to scroll to the middle of the page coz my
blog was plain HTML then. It was a limited edition of seven ice creams
representing each of the 7 sins with a different theme for each ice
cream and a phrase imprinted on the stick.

Which sin are you?

Well, it’s out again, but with only three of the sins now. No sign
of the other 4 that was out last year. That’s too bad coz the best
tasting and best looking sin from last year was Vanity. It was
champagne ice cream with pearl balls in the shell.

Wrapper of Sloth

It’s also smaller than the ones that came out a year back. The size
now is similar to the Magnum Minis instead of the normal sized Magnums.
They are only available in a boxed set of 6 mini Magnums (2 x 3 sins).

Wrapper of Gluttony

Well, I ate all six of them over the course of the night while I was
coding. I haven’t eaten anything besides the six ice creams for a full
32 hours but that’s still pretty bad. Heh. Eating so many ice creams
can’t be good for me.

Wrapper of Greed

I haven’t eaten anything else because I’m lazy to cook and I’m busy
coding for IE. I can actually go without eating for a long time, you
just don’t get hungry after you pass a certain point. I’m not planning
to eat anything until noon today. I find it easier to concentrate this

Gluttony – Craving something rich enough for your appetite? Gorge down this! Chocolate mudcake on a stick.

Well anyway, the 3 sins in this pack are Gluttony, Greed and Sloth.
I like Sloth because it’s “my” sin. πŸ™‚ Gluttony tastes the best though.
It’s chocolate mud cake ice cream with a white chocolate shell. For
some reason the stick didn’t have any writing on it. I forgot what it
had last year too, but it’s all the same as last year’s only smaller
and repackaged.

Greed – Let the golden richness of the honeycomb entice your
ravenous desires. The deep indulgent outside layer of chocolate will
excite your sensual hunger.

Greed is okay, but I didn’t really like it all that much. It’s
honeycomb ice cream with a shell made of milk chocolate and that hokey
pokey thingies that’s like the thing inside Crunchie. Come to think of
it, Greed tastes like Crunchie. It had “Greed is good” written on the

Greed is good

Sloth – Slack off on a peanut butter indulgence. A creamy excessive luxury for the loose relaxed sloth you are.

The last one is Sloth and it’s peanut butter ice cream with white
chocolate and peanuts for the shell. It didn’t taste all that good, but
I like it anyway coz it’s Sloth. πŸ™‚ It has “It is better to have loafed
& lost then never to have loafed at all”. Haha! I like this one so

It is better to have loafed & lost then never to have loafed at all

I feel like I’ve time travelled back a year.

Classic! NOFX in playing some of their greatest songs in Japan. The
audio and video are really good quality. It’s on a fast server too,
it’s around 230 KB/sec sustained and I’m in Australia. A must download
if you like NOFX. Too bad my two other favourite songs are not in. πŸ™‚
I’m partial to Pharmacist’s Daughter (Pump Up The Valuum) and Go to
Work Wasted (Surfer EP). It’s interesting that the Surfer EP is where
they kinda go back to their roots production, sound and lyrics wise. If
I didn’t know better I would have thought it was a Liberal Animation
era album. Go download the video. πŸ™‚

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  2. Do you think blogging just has to be about writing? Reason I ask is I want to start a photography blog, but I feel I am better at expressing myself with photos rather than write. Should I even start it? With your experience could it work, more pictures, less words?

  3. I loved what youve done here. The design is elegant, your content classy. Yet, youve got an edginess to what youre offering here. Ill definitely come back for more if you keep this up.

  5. How is it that just anybody can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything incredibly impressive –more like youve painted a pretty picture over an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not really say anything?

  6. Youre not the average blog writer, man. You definitely have something powerful to add to the web. Your design is so strong that you could almost get away with being a bad writer, but youre even awesome at expressing what you have to say. Such a great blog. Ill be back for more.

  10. I am very pleased with how much better I feel now that I don’t smoke regular cigarettes, and the kids don’t complain about the smell. We can use these in the house, not in the cold garage, where we smoked cigarettes.

  11. Good article and right to the point. I don’t know if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you people have any thoughts on where to get some professional writers? Thanks πŸ™‚

  13. What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

  14. Great job here. I really love what you had to say. Keep going because you definitely bring a new voice to this subject. Not many folks would say what youve said and still make it interesting. Well, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see more of this from you.

  15. Couldn’t be published any better. Reading through this blog post reminds me of my old room mate! He consistently kept discussing about this. I will send this article to him. Very sure he will have a excellent read. Thanks a lot for sharing! Yours trully, Helga.

  17. buenos dias. I realise it is not related to your post, but I am looking at your post using my new HTC but your post wont render properly, do you have any ideas? Do you have a mobile template for your site, if so can you please make sure it is still working and everything is right at your webpage. In the meantime I will check a few of my other favourite posts to make sure it isnt just my device. Thanks mate.

  18. If SE was smart (and had a heart) they’d make this thing for every carrier. Take over Android, get buzz in the handheld arena again and take on Apple in a big way – don’t give this to AT&T and call it a day. I know SE hates CDMA but make it for Verizon and AT&T at the least, and Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile if you’re serious about this thing making an impact. It’s gorgeous and this is very exciting. The choice of touchpads instead of analog sticks is interesting. It could work, but odd since we know they are capable of thin nubs for sliders (Go).

  19. hi everyone, my constitute is sausage and i conscionable poorness to say that this is an superior diary accumulation and i rattling constitute it ministrant, would it be alright if i submitted posts to this diary about topics i recovered exciting?
