Sloths are the new kittens.

I've always thought, if I could be any animal I'd be a sloth.

Seriously.  They just hang out in trees, eat leaves at a nice leisurely pace.

Have you noticed how they're all the rage these days?

Kristen Bell loves them.

They get onesies.

I'm sort of hoping they won't get so popular that they'll become so 2012 one day.

Perhaps I can weave them into future vacation plans.  I've always wanted to go to Costa Rica - they've got a Sloth Sanctuary.  I've asked Mr. W if we can keep one in the backyard.

If I had one I'd bring the little guy wherever I go.  Can you imagine? We could even get matching nail art.  So much canvas on a sloth's talons - a nail artist's dream!
