Slow Adventures in Slothville

Fleece – these may be the "ladies" you were speaking of at Gay Pride Boston? Posted by Hello



  1. Oooh, The Dastard loves stewardesses. Hello ladies. Come fly with me…wait-a-minute…are they? Eh, whatever.

    So, anyway. The Dastard is hi-jacking your post. He has classified you Sloth! It’s kind of scary how this desription fits you so exactly, in every way.

    Brown-Throated Three-Toed Sloth (Bradypus variegatus)
    Commonly mistaken for a primate, sloths are actually more closely related to the armadillo.

    They are well known for their slow movement and metabolism, taking up to a month to digest a single meal of their preferred food: the leaves and fruit of trumpetwood.

    They are strictly arboreal, wrapping their long curved claws around branches as they move through the canopy to forage for leaves, flowers, and buds. They may be seen hanging from branches or sitting in the forks of trees, descending to the ground only to defecate or to crawl to another tree.

    A blue-green algae grows on their hair, providing camouflage.

    Their distinctive “aye-aye” cry is heard more frequently during mating season.

    Bradypus! ha-Haaa.

  2. The picture is great, but what makes it even better, is what their handbags spell out. 😉

  3. What do they spell out Chocky? Let me take another look. Oh. Ohhhhhhhhh. Nope, I still don’t get it.

  5. That word should only be used on Sunday’s. Ummmm I love the fact that you call it a lift, it’s much better than my terminology: stank box to the top.

    she’s got a gold tooth, you know she’s hard core
    hey, hey la-dies.

  6. Dastard – a TWAT is a slang term for a moth-fly collector. Aye-aye!!!

    Count – I think you have two sites, yes? I think I left a comment on the other one…there are so many to keep track of…

    Vader – thanks – it’s nice to be home in a bed that smells like me. You know, like algae and bark and stuff.

    Dave – twat is my favorite insult. Cooter is my favorite slang for a twat. And you are my favorite crack-buddy. Break out the pipe!

    Truth is, I’m having one of those moments where I’m so sickened and angered by people’s inability to see what a heartless, arrogant, entitled, silver-spoon baby our current president is and how absolutely dangerous he is to our country that I can’t even put it into words. I’m sitting here with my jaw clenched. I’m not adding any comments to the pin-up boy’s site because there’s no use, but the ignorance and the arrogance are enough to make my stomach curdle.

  7. Hahahaha! Love it Sloth! Yes, those are the lovely ladies. And welcome back — good to see you back on your slothly paws. Enjoying the weather?

  10. Oh girl, I’m SO with you! Thanks for your note on my blog. It’s very reassuring to know there are more of us than them in here. 😉

  11. Man am I tired, I was all set to say something bad about Bush, and something else about Dastard, and that I am so loving the handbags. But, somehow the urge to pee just wiped it all from my memory. Maybe in the morning…

  12. oh gosh. i hope nobody know it was me. NOT! i swear it was Vadergrrrl! i swear… Sloth, you wouldn’t happen to be one of the ladies would you… Tsk tsk… Admit it!

  13. Well, I deleted Sloth’s comeuppance after her “twat” comment becuase it was a little harsh and I didn’t want to make Sloth cry, she is a rather delicate little flower. Rest assured Sloth, I won.

    Bite-me Bradypus.

  14. Fleece – it’s muggy today. I can’t move from my branch. Air too thick. I knew you were talking about these gals! I loved them. They actually posed for a better picture for me but one of the handbag letters was obscured so I used this one instead.

    Count – I figured it out – I got confused by the fact that sometimes you are the Count and sometimes you are Lovisa. I’m stoopid.

    Aimee – I HOPE there are more of us, but isn’t it creepy when people you just assumed were likeminded turn out to be (shudder) Republicans? It freaks me out every time. In fact, I once accidentally dated a Republican for two weeks before I found out. That was the end of THAT.

    Jamie – oh, man, can I relate.

    Kev – I am one of the gals – I’m the furry one on all fours lagging behind with a handbag around my neck that has the letter “E” on it. The bags were meant to say “TWEAT.” Don’t ask me why. But long-legged stewardesses move so much faster than sloths. I got a beatdown for that.

    Dastard – you are a dirty dirty Dastard. You may have deleted your comment but it still showed up in my email. Beatdown. Although beatdown may be reconsidered as you pointed out the “The War Against Terror” acronym which I had not noticed before and found highly entertaining.
