1. Gluttony: Looking for ways to cool off and satisfy your inner glutton? Have a Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at New York City's landmark restaurant, Serendipity 3. Or, you can purchase packets and make the famous concoction at home on their web site.
2. Greed: Is it us or does greed make for good storytelling? The Smartest Guys in the Room, by Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind, chronicles the ultimate screw job known as Enron. The documentary based on the book came out in April but is still showing in theaters. For listings, go to the movie's web site.
3. Pride/Vanity: Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the vainest of them all? Those who can afford to indulge in expensive outer self-reflection should check out Anthropologie's collection of mirrors.
4. Lust: Have your partner lusting after you in Eberjey's sexy yet user-friendly line of lingerie and basics.
5. Sloth: If you are immune to the cuddly charms of Australia's favorite lazy marsupial, then you are a cold hearted kitty-kicker. Help these adorable critters by joining the campaign to save the koala's natural habitat.
6. Envy: City life got you down? Smite your neighbors no more and join the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Greenest Block In Brooklyn contest that inspires wanna-be green thumbs to get planting. Check out last year's wining block, East 25th Street (Between Clarendon and Avenue D) in Flatbush.
7. Anger: Frustrated by the fools in Washington? Don't plan your coup without the proper chair. The Gunlocke Oval Office Chair was designed for President Kennedy and has been in the Oval Office for every prez since. Price: $2,490.
8. Sinful Cinema: Now don't lose your head over the 10 year anniversary New Line Platinum Series DVD of the movie Seven, (Se7en if you're nasty) starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
9. Music to Sin By: Who knew that there was a little bit of country in L.A.? From their website: "The Sin City All Stars are a revolving collective of seasoned musicians who came to be the core, unofficial house band at now famed Los Angeles club night Sweethearts of the Rodeo. This monthly gathering happens the first Wednesday of every month at Molly Malone’s and over the past three years has forged a sense of community out of the LA country rock scene."
10. Redeem Yourself: Volunteer! Pick a cause and get active! Alisa is organizing a huge benefit for the Franny Fund in Portland on October 8, 2005.
