Slugs

I thought i’d seen a lot of slugs lately. This article suggests it’s not just my imagination: Is the UK facing a slug plague?

In other news, today i have a rather sore throat. Which is quite ironic after my healthy wheatgrass juice yesterday! That’s the last time i treat myself to something uber-healthy!! Though i did rather like the flavour.

  1. Too much health can kill you :-)

    I heard and saw that Sweden is plagued by “killer snails”. Not nice…
    BTW, what’s the difference between a snail and a slug?

    When I saw your entry title, I made the connection with the “A Sluggish Memory” chapter, so kind of thought the entry might be HP-related…

  2. Haha, no sadly this is not HP-related, although i think i can spot the connection. We say ‘sluggish’ to mean ‘slow’ because slugs move very slowly, as do snails. The main difference is that snails have lovely shells into which they can curl up and go to sleep, whereas slugs are just ugly grey squidgy things which squidge along the ground.

    Neither slugs or snails are very nice if you accidentally step on them. Slugs because they squelch and goo, and snails because you feel guilty for breaking their fragile (and often beautiful) shells.

  3. Yes, i think there is somewhere that i can specify which tags are allowed. It shouldn’t be too difficult, just a case of finding out how to do it.

  4. Awesome cause yeah, I so would have used a “Do Not Want” macro for this post. Heh. (Cat macros make me utterly happy and giggly. They work as a response to EVERYTHING! hardy har har har.)

  5. I think slugs are really ugly looking. When i search it in google images, i got to see lots of varieties of both snails and slugs. All the slugs i found have the same ugly look. whereas snails have those beautiful shells.
