hollow happyween!

Such scaaary news this morning vis the Supreme Court... perfect holiday timing!

Speaking of which, the parade route passes very near log, and a question is hanging in the dank night air... to go, or not to go? Maybe for 5 minutes? Then run away from all the drunken revelry.

see you in hell

Satan dropped by the log for a visit yesterday, which was a real honor for Slothy. Who knew she was so pretty? She brought a whole herd of minions, too; they would chant everything that she said, right after she said it, which was a little annoying. It made for a kind of "singing-telegram" effect.

Her visit was meant to be a pre-birthday surprise (that terrible day being Saturday), and to offer some delicious food and bev and some kind of offer, the details of which are a little fuzzy... This sales technique seemed kind of cheesy for such a high-profile being as Satan - more suited to a Jehovah's Witness or Amway - but she did make the terms sound pretty good, so the papers were signed.

Afterward there is a slight feeling of unease... buyer's remorse? Whatevs. As with all things, it too will pass, especially with the aid of the fire-water she left. Yum.

speak to the toad

Toad is here to absorb all of your worst, most slimy problems. Press your face close to the sticky brown skin and murmur your concerns to the toad. Then lick the toad for a dose of forgetfulness. Lay your head down on the toad-pillow and drift off to sleep for total healing and transformation.

fist of love

It is a thing of wonder and terror. The world contains contradictions: how can this exist in the same dimension as the KittenCam?

Sloth has become a mushroomist. It is part art movement, part political movement, part religious practice. Practitioners of mushroomism hide in damp shady spots, dress as mushrooms, and nibble on leaves. Slothy was very excited to find out about it, because, except for the dressing up part, life in Log is already very mushroomy.

The guru of mushroomism is a lady who is known as Myko. She has achieved oneness with all mushrooms, to the point where she actually releases spores.

the real deal

Bernini, "Apollo and Daphne" 1622-25

Okay, so one could probably criticize this piece - anything is fair game for criticism, especially in the realm of art. But the physical presence of this sculpture is just so amazingly moving. And you know the old saying about Ginger Rogers - that she could do everything Fred could do, but in high heels & backwards? Bernini carved this beautiful, intricate, expressive, & indescribably evocative sculpture out of one piece of marble in fucking 1622.

There, now you really know: Sloth is a geek.

possible mascots

for Log. Here are some options:



Okay, time to share a secret. These critters came from a delightful web site that alerts the astute shopper to interesting auction items. An informative description accompanies each item, and sometimes there are magnified views to showcase important details. Have you been looking for a new bull-scrotum handbag? Or perhaps you are in the market for some inflatable legs...

Oh, if only this was a real shop, with gift certificates!

stolen moment

Nobody will understand this thing that exists between us. I know what they will say. But when I see you, when I see the vulnerability in your eyes, your little smile... all other meaning falls away. Don't we have a right to experience joy in life? There is so little of it to be had, maybe this is our only chance. Let's take it, my love.
