Schooled Sloth

On photo safari with El Dastardo...gosh, I haven't done that in awhile. "I saved the leaf that landed in my hair in the hope that I will find it in the pages of a book someday and think, 'This is the leaf from the day we fired that monstrous fanatic who was our president for a short time.'" I will still save the leaf. I'll put it in a book, maybe E.B. White's essays or The Master and Margarita. When I come across it, someday in the future, dried and flat, I will think, "This is the leaf from the day I learned to fear my country." Thank you, America, for teaching me a valuable lesson. Never again will I underestimate the power of your ignorance, the poison of your bigotry, or the depth of your fear. Sometimes, when a sloth feels frantic and defeated, she needs to hibernate. I'm hanging up the pink hat for a while. I'm going to take some pictures, do a mud mask, ignore my television, and cook something good to eat. Maybe I'll go to a pet store and play with some puppies. There's lots of housework to do - I haven't even hung the paintings on the walls yet... You all take care and be good to each other. I don't know when I'll be back. P.S. In case you were not aware, George W. Bush has asked Clarence Thomas to step in as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court when William Rehnquist passes away.
