log patch

The recent spate of norf*ckneasters (meaning the weather, not the kickass east-coast team of pretend surf goddesses) has taken its toll on the sloth family vacation shack. Here are two views of it in its current state:





Therefore and forthwith, slothy and HFP will be taking our little red truck, aka the Pimple, aka the Lollycar, up to the shifting and pelting sands of "The Cod" this weekend for some heavy construction and the traditional family bickerfest. Thus begins the cycle of deferred summertime fun, which is the way of things past and things to come for ever and ever, ad infinitum.

Housie has lost an important leg, which we will be replacing. There is the real and exciting possibility that the Love Shack might actuallly fall upon us like the Wicked Witch of the East, leaving our toes to curl right up to our striped knee-highs! One can only hope to meet such a spectacular end...

The good news is that I get to meet the new niece, who is at this point still a tiny blob. Nieces rule the fucking EARTH!

Housie looks really relaxed, especially in the second picture. Clearly housie was designed by the collaborative team of Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry?

Have a great weekend, hope you have good weather.

Good luck with the fix-its Slothy. May the forces of fun and strong house be with your pawlets.

PS, I agree with Corns, the house looks really laid back and chill.

Slothy, I wish you and the emergency response team good luck. Please take Glenda, the good witch along and you will be fine. I would also suggest you let others do the heavy work...we need you over here--you dig?

I agree with PD. Find time to practice the fine art of delegation.

Sloth, may the Sylphs of Silt raise up your posts and beam the good light into your being.

Sloth, is that your surfboard sticking out of the shack's window in the top photo?
What is the meaning of this?

Slothy, will you please come back already?? Please.

everyone, I didnt find any news stories saying that things are as bad as these photos. The sand shack is always being buried by the dunes so lets hope its just the usual seasonal mother Earth taking back its turf.

Slothy, memories of the sand shack got me thinking that it deserves a book about itself.

Oh and slothy there has been a MURDER? at your former ART SCHOOL.

"Wayne State University janitor finds body"

"A custodian made a grim discovery Wednesday morning in the Life Science Building of Wayne State University. The janitor found the body of a 23-year-old man on the first floor. Officials said they believe the man held a staff position at the school.

"It was a drug overdose," said Cheryl Yurkovich, a university spokeswoman, adding that there were no additional details available in the case.

The case is being handled as a homicide, pending an autopsy and further investigation, university police said. The university's Public Safety Department is handling the case in conjunction with the Detroit Police Department. Yurkovich said the man, who was not identified pending notification of his family, was a student in the fall and winter terms. She said he was not currently enrolled."

Report from Capeside: the house-leg has been replaced, the 412 leaks in the plumbing system have been fixed, but there are countless tasks remaining here to chew up & spit out the summer & slothy's bank account.

We're staying at mama FP's house; she's been providing food and comfort and an internet connexion, meanwhile planning for yet another museum show of her kickass sculptures.

There was a freak squall that came in from the southwest this evening. It completely blackened the sky... the sun was still visible, but it looked like the moon. Very creepy light; bushes & trees corkscrewing around in the wind. Totally apocolyptic & freakish. It made us all nervous but passed on by; now there are bright stars but it's cold.

Slothy, come home soon, my leg needs replacement.

are you back yet or still tending to the house hematomas, etc? I love those crazy storms although they are better when there is not the leak potential.

 
At 12:45 PM, Blogger sloth said...

I'm back in black, FB! ...well, back in beige is more like it. Feeling a little shell-shocked, missing some limbs, but otherwise rough-n-ready. For a nap.

btw Capt'n, that is not a surfboard, it is the giant cloaca of the house. Turns out we were standing in an unfortunate place.

Well hello, Slothy. Hello Slothy. It's so nice to have you back where you belong!

 
At 11:49 PM, Blogger sloth said...

yes and yes and yes again peeds. I belong here with one foot in the bosom of the rotten ol' apple, and one ether-shoe on Trix Island, with you superswell peeps. hearts.

I am drawing the map of Trix Island SLothy. Only a select few know how to find it.

There's a party here at beige today, so I am now drinking a beer at my desk. I'm drowning my sorrows at working here in the caves above the Manhattan Mall, after seeing the lovely & light-flooded, loft-like space where PD works! *sob*

Kidding... it ain't so bad here, after all. Or maybe the beer goggles are kicking in.

Hi Sloth, welcome back! I'm glad you fixed the house. Can you come and fix mine? Every handle, doorknob and hinge in my apartment was mysteriously dangling when I woke up this morning. Does this mean I have a poltergeist?

 
At 11:37 AM, Blogger sloth said...

JD, I think maybe you have a polterkitty... was the toilet paper in the bathroom shredded?

 
At 12:29 PM, Blogger JD said...

Yes, the toilet paper was shredded and every surface in the house is coated with fur (I sem to be coated with fur, as well). This is scary! I need an exorcism.

I hope you got good and toasted at the beige party, by the way.

Did you hear that it's gonna be 91 degrees on Tuesday? This is too precipitous.
