Happy newyearzsez eve!

This year's LAST SLOTH is so excited to kiss her favorite human at midnight she's already practicing her most coyly alluring look. Pucker up, friends... don't be shy. It's almost the Year of the Rabbit!

Happy calendar-flipping, dear readers. Legions of adorable sloths (with themes!) begin anew next year.

We all get itchy butt sometimes.

Don't judge today's sloth as she attempts to rid her posterior of that unpleasant tickling sensation. She doesn't care that you're wearing flannel cow pants and listening to Ace of Base. Nothin' but love!

Have you any trail mix?

Today's sloth is fresh out of peanuts and M&Ms, and would like some sweet and salty goodness to go with her regular diet of green rainforest leaves. Help a fellow traveler out? You know she's good for it.

Happy blizzard!!

Today's sloth says, I LIVE IN PARADISE, MOTHERF*CKER. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT SNOWPLOW.

And to all, a sloth night!

Merry Slothmas to all of you, from all of us here at slothoftheday! We urge you to celebrate appropriately - take lots of naps, crawl on plants, and blink at your loved ones. Today's sloth is kicking off the festivities in style, and we wish everyone a very happy weekend.

Sometimes you just need a hug.

And if you're anything like today's sloth, you just go out and find one. When you're this cute, a hug is never too far away.

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Sloth tired.

Sloth stay up so late and listen to music, talk with friends, throw things into fire that sloth not want anymore. Sloth say, hug me it's bedtime.

Happy solsclipse!

Today's sloths are just as excited about the lunar eclipse and winter solstice as we are! Here at slothoftheday we've been busy making snow cookies and moon tea, and mama and baby sloth are cuddling right up in preparation for the big day. Happy holidays, everyone!

Because it's my birthday and I say so

Today we present to you the second best sloth video, featuring David Attenborough! Happy birthday to meeeeeeeee.

Don't hate her because she's beautiful

Today's sloth has it all. A full belly, some cozy wicker to hang in, perfect eyeliner and evenly-spaced bleach spots. You know her stylist is booked up until February.

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Sloth love carrot.

Sloth eat chopped vegetables and sloth grow strong. So so strong! Will beat you in arm wrestling!

To eat leaves, perchance to dream

Today's sloth lives in a beautiful green place. Think of him as you hurry your bundled self along the snow-covered streets, seeking warmth and shelter. There's a whole world of paradise out there! And it starts with a wiry little vegetarian mammal.

Monday, December 13, 2010

Come again?

Today's sloth is not quite sure what she's just heard. (You can tell by the eyes.) Maybe you could write it down for her, to prevent any further miscommunication. Mercury *is* in retrograde, you know...

Friday, December 10, 2010

Thank sloth it's Friday!

Today's sloth is so excited he's gone ahead and busted out his joy-hang... just in time for the weekend. What do *you* do to show the world you're happy?

Thursday, December 9, 2010

It's a quiet morning

here at slothoftheday. The tea is on, the music's great, the cat is chasing his tail and today's sloths are totally f$%!ing content.

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Pounce!

That's the sound today's sloth makes when she leaps upon her favorite teddy bear. Say it with her... and don't forget to stretch it out over a period of two minutes!

Inquiring sloths want to know!

There's a fire in all of us. An ever-burning desire to learn -- more knowledge, more skills, more trades, and more about the world and the billions of beings (large and small) that make it our home. Today's sloth is no stranger to this flame, and is eager to get started on some continuing life education. Won't you lend a hand and point him in the right direction?

Monday, December 6, 2010

Even slowpokes get bored

Today's sloth is leaving the sloth picnic. If you had plans to meet her there you better step it up; as soon as she gets her leg out of that Frisbee, you'll only have a few hours left.

Friday, December 3, 2010

A humble request

Today's sloth, judging by his expression, would like some privacy.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

And the gold medal for branch-hanging goes to...

Today's sloth has trained long and hard, wished and prayed, and practiced his acceptance speech for this very moment. And now that it's here, he's gonna savor it for all it's worth. Before he thanks his mom, that is.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

I can haz luv?

Yes. Yes, you can. And so can today's sloths. Give their contented little mugs a gander, and then go hug someone.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

We could all use a hand once in awhile.

Long day? Tiring week? Feeling overwhelmed with the amount of things to do and places to be? Today's sloth understands, and is herself reaching up for a little help. Send her some happy thoughts (or a rope) so she can get what she needs... it's never too far away.

Monday, November 29, 2010

Sometimes it's so hard to get out of bed.

And that's why today's sloth is bringing bed with him. Specifically, his favorite stuffed dog. It helps ease the chill of a cold winter morning, and looks great with his just-tousled hairdo.

Friday, November 26, 2010

Don't you wish you could pull this off

Good afternoon campers, and wishing you a very happy post-holiday laze from all of us here at slothoftheday! Today's sloth had a little too much whiskey pudding last night, which enables her to doze while clinging to her favorite tree. (As if you needed more evidence re: the superiority of the species. Pssht.)

Thursday, November 25, 2010

All hail the Thanksgiving Sloth!!

Today's sloth is thankful for blankets and fabrics of all kinds. He wants to curl up on your feet and watch you eat, then steal your leftovers while you sleep it off.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Have you napped this week?

If not, this little nipper'll set you straight. Go ahead -- take a load off! Put yourself on pause! Close those eyes and listen to the ocean! We here at slothoftheday extend you full permission.

(Thanks to Judy for the photo; submissions gladly accepted!)

Don't forget to pack your sloth!

Listen, it's New York City - rent is high, landlords are shady, and unpleasant surprises are rampant. Today's sloth doesn't mind that you're moving again. She won't judge you, and she has no preferred neighborhood. She just wants to come along, and maybe steal your pillow. So don't break her heart; give her a good home!

Monday, November 22, 2010

Happy Monday!

Today's sloth is really late for work because he takes the scenic route and insists on traveling by wall. But it's okay; his boss is a snail.

It's National Sloth Day!!

In honor of this auspicious holiday, we present to you: live three-toed sloth, featuring face-scratching and picnic blanket. Filmed by us, your humble sloth providers, on location in Costa Rica. Enjoy, and may the sloths be with you all day.

You say three toes, I say three fingers

Everyone knows that three-toed sloths are the best. Nicer and slower than their two-toed counterparts (and with tails!), three-toeds are known for their sleepy grins and appetite for greenery. Here, a human attempt at three-fingered communication. Solidarity forever!


Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Breaking news! Trees are important.

They give us clean air, pleasing scenery, and enriched soil. Also, they're great places for sloths to hang. Today's sloth wants nothing more than to dangle and grin at you. Toss him a smile; it's free!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

She's coming for you.


Today's sloth is full of vigor and ambition, with a bounce in her crawl and a wicked sense of direction. She knows the best abandoned roads, and she's packed plenty of leaves for the trip. But go ahead and finish your tea; you might have awhile.

Monday, November 15, 2010

Welcome to sloth of the day!

Today's sloth: young, impressionable, with a penchant for pilly yellow fabric and a fab Liverpool 'do.
