The Love of My Life

Based on the title of this post you probably expect it to be about the Dude. Or reading. Or eating. But it's not, so maybe I should have titled it "One of the top 10 loves of my life" but that just doesn't sound catchy.

So today's post is about one of the top ten loves of my life: sloths! I first learned about sloths in one of my favorite movies, Ice Age. One of the stars of Ice Age is Sid the Sloth!

Handsome fella, isn't he! For my birthday Erin and Heather got me my very own Sid the Sloth! He accompanied Erin and I to the premiere of his second movie, Ice Age 2. Sid (or "Shid" as it is more properly pronounced) is quite a guy. He's funny, good looking (see above picture), likes babies, and enjoys eating salad just like me!

This year for my birthday the Dude and and I went to the zoo and one of the requirements was to look for a sloth. We found one! In true sloth style he napped the whole time we were there. Sloths aren't exactly known for their work ethic but that's ok; who doesn't like an afternoon nap? Here's a picture of the sloth from the zoo. He's the furry lump in the middle.

Today I read an article about a baby sloth that was born in Costa Rica. He's adorable! Sadly from what I can tell sloths are not good pets but if I ever end up living in the Costa Rican jungle I will definitely have a sloth as a sidekick. He'll keep me from working too hard and we can take afternoon naps together. I can't wait!
