My friend Josh e-mailed me a while ago saying that I should change the name of the blog to Slimy Distractions and make it all about slugs. This was because of all the pictures of slugs that I had posted. I actually hate slugs; I only posted the computer-drawn pictures because slug pictures had worked out well in my post about how to get a slug out of your house.
I like almost all animals, with a few exceptions. The animals that I don't like generally fall into two categories.
The first consists of slimy terrestrial invertebrates, specifically slugs and earthworms
The second consists of animals that want to drink my blood, such as ticks and mosquitoes, or otherwise bite me in a way that will leave me itchy.
And then there are the leeches, which combine elements from both categories.
