If you are (and you should be!) a regular reader of Commonbeauty, you’ve been enjoying a wonderful guest-blogger series on the Seven Deadly Sins. I haven’t mentioned it here because I’ve been too preoccupied with my own parochial & pedestrian pursuits. This is wonderfully ironic since today Commonbeauty has posted my thoughts on pride (a topic upon which I am sadly expert). So while I toil away at converting my diss proposal into a proper intro chapter, you can read my prideful pontifications here. And while you’re there, be sure to check out the other guilty pleasures: gluttony, anger, lust, envy, greed, sloth… It’s deliciously vicious.
