new pets

They rode in on a banana:



There is invisible sex happening in log, times one million. The silent pulsations are distracting, but many, many new friends have been gained in the last week. They have big red eyes, they are very turned-on, and they love to bathe in wine.

Sometimes it's hard to keep track of them... they all look sort of alike (sorry -- this is an ugly thing to say; just being honest). Often it's necessary to resort to "hey," instead of a formal greeting with name. Hyena says they are called drosophila melanogaster, and they only live 3 weeks -- SAD!

For now, it is never, ever lonely, logside. Life is a mystery. It teems.

You are a charming hoastess Slothy. I'm sure eventually you will be able to distinguish your guests from one another. The lady guest appears to be much bigger and much more sleepy then the male guest.
Is she drunk, was she born drunk?

Corny, She was probably born in a glass of minervois, which would make her big and oaky, with smoky fruits and lush tannins.

Which must be why she's drunk! Maybe even too drunk to bite his head off afterwards. (or is that a different bug...?)

Speaking of drunk...

Pirate Slut, it seems that if you slow down ANY speech by the Shrub he sounds completely wasted; you don't even have to slow it down that much...

This just posted: old & prophetic photos of the brother of Sloth (well, his feet, anyway). Taken by the uninhibited Mr. Reginald Primrose years ago, and published on his blog.

The "obsession" was birds, which turned into a career in ornithology. The "Deliverance" came true, too, in the form of a tiny niece, who is named after a bird.

Slothy--I WANNA GO HOME!
Your brother has very nice feet! I especially like the photo of the feet sticking outta the newspaper.

 
At 4:06 PM, Blogger sloth said...

pd, tell yr boss "sloth says it's okay if I go home." that'll work!

He's not here and I have officially stopped thinking for the day. I am reading dumb book queries...for a change. Are you at the beige today?

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger sloth said...

yep, working on drawings for paintings, generally goofing off. slow here.

just heard a rumor that wizard is getting a divorce, so rich wife can no longer float his gallery & he might close up shop after this season. But this is completely unconfirmed.

Oh that's good that you are working on painting plans. I am tired of the commercials on the classic rock station. There is one with a fake weather report about 4-6 inches of snow that always gets me.

And our strange intern is in today--freakin' me out.

 
At 4:34 PM, Blogger sloth said...

strange intern: describe!

 
At 4:56 PM, Anonymous pd said...

SHe comes in and "works" on stuff in her little corner. It has taken her 3 months to finish a project our usual interns take three days to complete. She speaks very softly with that pronounced "s" sound and always uses 50 more words in a sentence than she should. Example: "Hey Intern, is it cold outside?"

"Well, yeah, it issss kinda chilly but not too chilly that I wouldn't go out or anything, but cold, yeah it'ssssss cold outsssssside, yeah.
I am from Chicago, so I am ussssse to the cold, but I can sssssee how other people may find thisssss cold. Yeah, definitely."

She spends way too much time in the bathroom (there is only one--it's a small office).

 
At 4:57 PM, Blogger sloth said...

uuuuuhhhhhhh.... HATE the sibilant "s" sound... makes for the crazy feeling. Can you fire someone who works for free?

 
At 4:58 PM, Anonymous pd said...

ANd she mumbles--very softly all the time.

 
At 4:58 PM, Blogger sloth said...

annoying blogger is posting all mixed-up again! blah.

 
At 5:03 PM, Blogger fairy butler said...

PD!! That intern needssss to go. Go now. That sounds horrid. And Sloth, this wizard news is most alarming! Do you have any more info yet?

 
At 5:05 PM, Blogger sloth said...

Had to retract snarky comment... wizard is actually a nice wizard, if a little odd.

 
At 5:06 PM, Blogger sloth said...

there will be a studio visit next week, so we'll see.

 
At 5:13 PM, Blogger mountain man said...

jeez, I hope for the sake of our friend lupus that there will be a gallery in the fall......but it would not surprise me if it were the case. your wizard is a very nice man, but my goodness, there have been errors. and his wife has put up with penty....

 
At 5:15 PM, Blogger mountain man said...

that's plenty.

i am sitting here with a cut off tampon in my mouth to stop the bleeding that comes from the craterous holes in me gummers. i napped and woke up with scarlet mess everywhere. this sux. UF is teaching today and i don't have my prescription filled. i can't deal with getting down there to pick it up, i feel like crud and all woozy. all they can deliver is motrin xxx strength but the other stuff, the stuff that will probably actually work to make this horrid pain go away may not be procured until tomorrow.....unless UF gets back before 9. sorry to tell this long tale of woe, but that's where me be at. OUCH is all i can say.

 
At 5:17 PM, Blogger fairy butler said...

i know. i thought of lupus too. mm! i am worried about you. the bleeding should stop soon.

 
At 5:18 PM, Anonymous pd said...

We have fired an intern once--only once. But she must go! The onyl thing I like is her taste in musssssic.

I missed the wizard thing Sloth...but I wish you good luck with him.

 
At 5:18 PM, Blogger sloth said...

comrade Slothy will also volunteer for 'scripts duty, MM!

 
At 5:19 PM, Anonymous pd said...

Oh MM, I am sssssorry you are scarlett today. Can anyone pick up the script? I would do it for you if you think you can't make it thru til tomorrow.

 
At 5:21 PM, Blogger mountain man said...

You are a sweety PD. I am going to call UF to see if he can make it back by 9....i hope so. In the meantime I am holding on tight to the throbs of ill. Maybe that was Zell who inhabited my nice Dean Martin-seeming dentist and he tortured me for being innocent. It was not safe!!!

 
At 5:21 PM, Blogger sloth said...

is lupus having a show in the fall?

 
At 5:24 PM, Blogger fairy butler said...

god mm. we still have arthur's meds. I wish i could mentally transport them to you from the beige. i know the unrelenting throb you are feeling. not good at all.

 
At 5:25 PM, Blogger fairy butler said...

yes, lupus says he is tenatively on for the fall. i think that's what he said last time i saw.

 
At 5:27 PM, Anonymous pd said...

Okay--I hope he comes back in time...is it safe?

 
At 5:28 PM, Blogger sloth said...

At 5:50 PM, Blogger mountain man said...

I like that joke PD. I am in troubs. UF won't be back. I can't do it, the throbs are too bad. Motrin is cutting it. F this shit.

 
At 5:51 PM, Blogger mountain man said...

I mean Motrin isn't cutting it. BRAIN DAMAGE ALERT. There it is again.

I heart fruit flies. I remember harvesting them in 10th grade genetics class. Drosophila Melanogaster, it rang a bell. Some naughty bugger decided to put his teeming stash of babies in someone's bookbag. Sounds like a fun time Sloth, over at your log. Maybe you and HFP need to get nude and join in the fun.

Thanks again for tonight's kindness. You are lovely.

 
At 7:37 PM, Blogger sloth said...

could not bear the idea of your teefs hurting, mm... it is the worst! the whole world shrinks to the size of your mouth. may your sleep be restful, lovely ems.

Sloth

I thought the niece was given the Greek name for goddess, my interpretation. If not then Im worried more about the obsession.

Ignore Candy Im self-fulfilling my pre mid-life crisis declaration. off to corrupt more minds...
