Is it time to play yet?

We here at slothoftheday really hope so, because if not today's sloth is going to be sooooooooo disappointed. In fact, we can see from our window that it's not that cold out, and the blacktop is empty. So go find that red playground ball and some chalk; he's ready to whip you in four-square!!

Today's sloth is late! Someone forgot to set his alarm! Will he hurry?! Stay tuned...

A new goal!

Today's sloth loves crawling so much, she isn't going to stop for three whole hours. Of course, that's how long it takes to get to the mailbox, but this time she won't even break for ice cream.

This is a serious problem.

"What do you mean my flight to New Orleans got canceled?! I have to get to Mardi Gras! All my friends are there already!! As soon as I get down from this tree I'm going to call that airline and tell them what's what. You can't stop me!"

Some days are just slothfully perfect

And in this particular case, such a good time was had this evening with a snuggly cat, homemade vegan dinner and season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that today's sloth just isn't done. She doesn't care that it's late; she wants more! More! Won't you hand over the popcorn and press "Play Episode" a few more times?

Like dewdrops off a sloth's back

Today's sloth isn't even bothered by the appearance of yet more snow and the lackadaisical timing of the subway today. She likes it slow - that just means she's got more time to hang from trees while waiting for the C train. And now, with those handy LED screens telling her when the next one's coming, she only has to leave one whole hour to get to the station!

Ahhhhhhhhhh, the return of Friday

Today's sloth has had a long week and wants to just swing on some pretty green trees for awhile. Sing her a song while she dances!!

Oh, the bliss of motherhood

and the vigilance of childhood. We here at slothoftheday urge you to reach out and hug your mama. And if you can't (or don't want to), find somebody else and play pretend. Weeee!

Warm weather brings out the best in everyone

Today's sloth is so excited for pre-spring that he's befriending nearby humans. Sharp claws are his way of showing love. What will you do to celebrate the beginning of the end of another long, cold winter?

"Someone found a more incredulous baby sloth? I don't believe it. I'm giving you my absolutely most convincing look of utter shock right now. Look how perfectly moist my noise is, how symmetrically round my little black eyes are. How dare you refute my claim to the throne? I demand evidence."

Sloths love each other.

But today's sloth has no valentine! All she has is a few heart-shaped leaves to chew on. Won't you put a little note in her paper mailbox? We know you're sweet on her...

Today's sloth is just so happy

Because today's sloth loves her friends and chosen family. So much! So hard! Even more intensely than she's gripping that tree!

Happy Friday to you, dear readers. We certainly hope you enjoyed sloths-upside-down week, have a fabulous weekend with the ones you love and we'll see you right back here in just a few.

A little love for the gymnasts of the jungle!

Continuing with this week's theme, today's sloth proudly displays her perfect dangling ability on a thin, creaky branch. Give her a round of applause... she's never been out this far before!

What's a little wet sloth between friends?

Not so bad, we're here to tell you. Especially when said wet sloth is *hanging upside down* just like his Monday and Tuesday compatriots. (And when he's so damn cute. Bonus points for pretty green wood.)

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

And today's sloth is also upside down!

Little backwards-reaching slothy arms, for your viewing pleasure. Maybe we will make it a theme week, where no sloth is left un-turning. Stay tuned tomorrow...

Today's sloth is so late!

Perhaps you can forgive her, she had a crazy weekend hanging upside down and rooting for the Packers (otherwise known as the only non-profit community-owned professional sports team). Football for the people!!!

Now they've done it

Today's sloth is very worried because he just heard that there were snipers in Tahrir Square. Sloths are by nature non-violent, and yearn to be free. Won't you read him tweets from Egypt as they come in so he can be assured that his protesting sloth-friends are still safe?

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Ooh ouch ooh ooofh owowowowow!

Today's sloth is just a little too close to that frozen flagpole for our tastes. One lick and that thing'll come right off! Be careful little nugget! Keep your tongue where you can see it!

Just a little wintry mix to keep things spicy

Can you believe that today's sloth has never even *heard* of freezing rain? (Well, we can. Let's keep it that way, eh? Our secret is... uh, safe with... us.)
