Slow Adventures in Slothville

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!

Rough edges but all will be chill…

Hi everyone. Sorry about all the shenanigans here. I broke someone’s heart and now find it necessary to move Slothville to the lee of the stone for the time being.

So here we are and I know it’s a little bare bones at the mo, but I’m still putting the sidebar together, categorizing stuff and generally trying to figure out how WordPress (or, as Dan Tobin calls it, NerdPress) works. So settle in, check out the construction, try not to hit your head on any metal piping and remember! The outlets are not covered yet so watch your fingers!

One more thing: it’s absolutely amazing to me how many of you who wrote asking for the address and password are people I don’t know. I think it’s really cool that you all keep reading even though you don’t feel like commenting. If I ever checked my stats I might have had more of an idea just how many of you there are, but this has been a lovely surprise, so thank you.

If you’re new here and have stumbled upon us, feel free to browse the archives. If you would like to be a citizen of Slothville, please email me at and let me know who you are and how you found us. Also please direct me to your homepage. From this point forward all posts will be password protected.

I miss my old home and wish we could have stayed. Sorry to uproot everyone, but it couldn’t be helped. Moving on!

P.S. I’m sorry I didn’t bring any of your comments over. I thought about it for a second and realized it would take both energy and thought, neither of which I’m much inclined toward. I’m sure you all remember what you said anyway, right?

Due to technical (emotional) difficulties, Slothville is temporarily closing its doors. You may have noticed that a cyclone came in and knocked all the buildings down. Well, we need to keep the public out for a little while as we re-build. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you will return when renovations are complete.

Thank you for your loyal readership.

In the meantime, a little light reading.
