A post about zebras and sloths ...

I don't think I've ever made a secret of the fact that I'm as lazy as a sloth.

Catch me on a really good day and I'm not just lazy … I'm a languid, languorous, lifeless, loafing, lackadaisical, lethargic layabout!

That day would be today.

I came this close …


… which is pretty close … to not writing a Shiny T Tuesday post this week … because I'm feeling so idle, indolent and inert.

But by skipping this week I would have ruined my perfect attendance record on the lovely Jane's linky party.  The only thing I dislike more than doing something when I'm feeling snoozy, somnolent and slack … is breaking a perfect record … at anything.

How is it that someone soooo lazy … can also be sooooo OCD?

So here it is … for what it's worth … which really, truly isn't much.

The lazy woman's guide to creating a fashion post.

  • Laze around on the couch all day in your daggiest clothes … wearing your most unattractive footwear.
  • Don't do your hair.
  • Don't apply ANY make up … NONE.
  • At approximately 6:00pm … call your son from his room … get him to get your camera … and remain seated while he takes a couple of shots of you … don't move.
  • Enjoy another hour or so of inertia … then begrudgingly rise and walk approximately 10 steps to your computer … upload your photos.
  • Click on safari … go to your Blogger Dashboard …  type a bit of tripe … hit publish.




It is entirely coincidental that this week's Shiny T Tuesday prompt is "The Zebra's Crossing"  … and in a stroke of pure luck … but let's call it genius … I happened to be wearing stripes today.

Then to prove I'm not entirely unenergetic and unindustrious … I really shook it up … by turning this one black and white … black and white … zebra … get it … by golly I'm good!!


I'm wearing oversized Cotton On t-shirt … 
Lands End Leggings … 
Portmans cardigan … 
and last but most definitely not least Masseur Sandals … otherwise known as "those weird, ugly, pointy, massage things you wear"

So there you have it … this week's Shiny T Tuesday post … aren't you glad I bothered.

  2. it is a skill to avoid general house malarky, and rest langourously in a fetching manner, summon a child to a follow a request, then complete the task whilst having your feet massaged, woman, you are a legend!!! x x x

  3. I agree with Sandra - indolence and slackery are great skills, developed over years, honed through training and practice, and a sign of true wisdom and experience. Use them wisely! xxxx

  6. I am glad you bothered... and that this is a bad day? Well, my dear, you are gorgeous. And you make me laugh. Funny how we both just happened to be wearing stripes. I guess it was meant to be.

  7. LOL!
    I share in your record-breaking OCD malady. What I think is so funny is you look like a bored socialite lounging around just waiting to be photographed, or entertained ;-)

  8. Housework is so over rated that I myself failed the course in doing it, but got the diploma in avoiding it!! Do people come to visit me or my house? I always tell people if you are coming to see me don't be coming to check out my domestic skills because you will be disappointed!!

    1. I can honestly say that I notice my own dirt, grime and lack of housewifery skills … but I never notice anyone else's.
