Slow Adventures in Slothville

February 14, 2007

Sloths don’t do sleet.

Filed under: Boston, Slothyness — shhville @ 7:04 pm

Yeah, so I took one look at the horizontal sleet rattling agains my windows this morning, thought about bundling up and toddling to the bus stop and waiting in said horizontal sleet for the bus to come rescue me, then toddling across campus to my job where no one would be in due to horizontal sleet and thought, “Fuck THAT.”

So I’m home and I’m about to cook some fuckin’ EGGS with some fuckin’ RANCH FRIES and a buncha fuckin’ other crazy stuff that I’m gonna EAT and then I’m gonna lay around on the couch and rub my fuckin’ BELLY because I’m warm and fuckin’ dry and everybody else is fuckin’ COLD and WET.  Yeah, life is GOOD today, muthafuckas!!



  1. we don’t have sleet, and I stayed home anyway. i ate a bowl of cereal and 3 chocolate truffles from the box Kev got me.

    life is SWEET, yo.

  2. I went to work. Because I’m from SNOW COUNTRY. And y’all are WIMPS!

  3. You both suck. I went out in the sleet. Twice so far, with another trip out scheduled to get me to Rick’s this evening.

    Sloth, there has been a mad email convo going on today. You might want to check your other email addy to catch up with it.

  4. Do you have to take a sick day or a vacation day if you get stuck home due to weather?

  5. Yeah, and I totally don’t have any, either. Buhfuckit!

  6. What a sloth you are!

    Oh wait….

    Of course I went to work today. Like Retro, I too hail from Snow Country. We only got a foot or so last night. Barely worth mentioning.

  7. I braved the massive 3 inches of Nor’easter this morning, unlike most of my colleagues at Major New England U., and then they sent us home at 3 p.m. anyway. Now I’m home, watching Oprah, drinking cocoa, and eating yummy snacks. Woo!

  8. Buncha sissys stayed home. This was nothing.

  9. Retro and I posted at the same time, so just to clarify, I wasn’t calling Retro a wimp. Because I’m from snow country, too.

  10. Hey, I’m from MAINE, so gimme a break. This isn’t snow, it’s HORIZONTAL SLEET. And the ground is all ice. No thanks!

    Comment by shhville — February 14, 2007 @ 10:05 pm

  11. Yeah, but we’re jealous, so NO BREAK! I am one of those people who almost always makes it to work, AND ON TIME in the crappiest weather. I totally don’t know how to work the system, since I see a fun challenge, and not a dangerous situation/reason to stay home.

    But then, I always have the kind of job where if I don’t show up, they have to replace me. Dammit.

  12. Why is Santa Monica in February like my hippie uncle reminiscing?

    ‘Cause we’re both enjoying highs in the 70s.

  13. I had to decide if I needed to bring a light jacket to wear over my T-shirt and not forget to bring my sunglasses. I too am from snow country, and NEVER EVER miss it.

    It was in the 70’s in Hollywood!

  14. Okok, to be fair, if I had me a warm furbutt waiting at home I’d have stayed home and cozied up to it too.

    Comment by M — February 15, 2007 @ 3:07 am

  15. Yeah, son. Not only did I stay in yesterday but I’m chillin’ at home today too. It’s too cold , yo!

  19. Funniest thing: When I go out in spite of the weather I get a feeling of accomplishment that I could not otherwise know. A good life (in a parody of the spartan life) takes work: The more I put into it the more I get out of it.
