Aside

I HATE SUMMER

A/C broken at work, so it’s got me feeling like the wicked witch of the west while I try to plow through the workload. Plus there’s a plague, a PLAGUE of slugs on the grounds here. I have to play a game of hippity hop at the barber shop just to avoid them all every time I walk to my car.

Slugs, ticks, mosquitoes, humidity, crowds, yep that’s it, I’m done with summer.

BRING BACK THE SNOW NOW.

    Welll at least it’s not gators —- but then I don’t mind the one in the pond in the backyard. The lizards here eat the bugs and the State of FL actually pays to have the neighborhoods and public streets fumigated at night to control the bug populations…..I’m thinking to avoid the curses of summer – you need to move to where it’s summer all the time.

      Give me a ring when Florida figures out how to suck all the humidity out of the air, then I might consider it. ;-)

      Ahhhh floop me, did I just get a mosquito bite??? *scratches* $%^&*!!!

    You know what is great for killing slugs? Beer – no joke, slugs are attracted to the smell of it.

    Pour a can of beer into one of those Chinese food soup take-out containers, leave it on the ground near the slugs. The slugs will mosey up the container, fall into the beer and drown.

    Actually, I’m not insulting you in anyway (I don’t even know what you do for a living), but did anyone at work spill beer on the floor? Is there a recycable container with beer glasses nearby? That could be why there’s an infestation of slugs. They really like beer.

      Not unless we have a lot of alcoholics here, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least. ;-) I know salt kills them as well, in a rather disturbing fashion too. (I think I’ll go out and buy a few pounds worth)
