Slow Adventures in Slothville

March 16, 2006

Thursday is Tuesday

Filed under: Slothyness, The Move — shhville @ 2:27 pm

This week, Thursday is the worst day, temporarily taking the title from long-time heavyweight champion Tuesday, which is likely to reclaim its title next week in order to avoid reality being turned on its head.

I’ve been out sick the past two days and I KNOW what you’re thinking. “If you’ve been home with free time on your hands, why does your blog still look like a wind-blown icy tundra instead of the lush, diverse jungle that is your native habitat?” The answer to this rather impertinent question that have ascribed to you is just this: I AM A SLOTH.

When sloths are sick at home with nothing pressing to do, they follow a very strict schedule:

1. Wake up at 1 in the afternoon.

2. Make eggs.

3. Take a valium (optional).

4. Watch a movie (may substitute with book if movie unavailable).

5. Take nap.

6. Wake up and crack a bottle of something.

7. Watch a movie (may substitute with “Law & Order re-runs if movie unavailable).

8. Order take-out.

9. Mud mask (optional).

10. Sleep.

So, as you can see, I really had no time for blog-wrangling. Fortunately, Warrior Steve has figured out how to put pictures in my sidebar so you will be seeing more biodiversity soon. If your link isn’t up yet, don’t worry, I was re-naming everyone and I got bored and “Goonies” was on tv, so half of you aren’t up yet.

Oh, I almost forgot – today is SO BAD because one of my co-workers is on vacation and I’m supposed to be doing his work as well as mine, but instead I ate eggs and slept for two days so when I got here this morning the pile of work sitting on my desk, chuckling and fluttering its evil fingers at me was (is) the size of Finland. So off I go to negate everything that makes me who I am and be a good worker sloth.

Ciao babes!



  1. Thursdays always suck in my world. Tuesdays also are the suck. Maybe it’s days that start with T?

    Excellent step by step guide to sloth recovery.

  2. Mmm, eggs. Mmm, Valium.

    Don’t worry. Tomorrow is Friday. πŸ™‚

  3. See, that’s why Thursday usually does NOT suck. Because the next day is Friday. You’re almost there! This Thursday, however, involves me taking a huge pile of work home with me and WORKING AT HOME which is inhuman and wrong and unslothful.

  4. Thursdays have always been a favorite. When I was younger, it was because “L.A. Law” was on on Thursdays. Then, when I got to college, Thursdays signalled the beginning of the weekend (i.e, happy hours and long nights of drunken revelry). However, now Thursday is just another day, though it IS better than Mon-Wed because it’s one step closer to the weekend.

  5. Wow, you made eggs? I’d just grab some cereal or a pop tart or something. Making eggs requires standing for a while and I prefer to be horizontal as much as possible when I’m sick. Unless the Wife’s home. Then I whine like a baby and make her get me stuff.

  6. I read your post and it reminded me of this great shirt. It seems appropriate:

    Feel better. πŸ™‚

  7. Finland, Finland, Finland, the place that is our hooooome.

    Sorry, Spamalot flashback.

    And I like the “For Now” part of my title. πŸ™‚

    Oops, sorry. I meant *touch*.

  9. Hmmm. I think your slothful response to all of this is totally appropriate. I mean, sloths don’t run fast, so the response to danger of climbing higher to hide or at least be out of reach makes sense. So does sleeping til 1 if you are sick.

  10. Like Arthur Dent in The Hitchikers Guide, I could never get the hang of Thursdays.

  11. You make eggs when you’re sick???

    I’m a toast and tea sickie myself. When I leave the couch.

    Hmmm…I’m not seeing ANYONE’S link on the sidebar? Am I retahded? Or is there a category I’m just not seeing?

  12. I hate Thursdays because it means it’s not Friday yet. Feel better, Sloth.

  13. I agree. This has been a crappy Thursday.

    Totally crappy.

  14. Feel better, Sloth. Yeah, this Thurs. has been tough. Glad it’s over.

    Hey, I’m the King of the Castle.
    Do you mean White Castle?
