Is there a New Romantic revival on the way (and ooooh aren't there a lot of slugs around this morning??)

These were my two thoughts as i walked to work

Bloody slugs everywhere

4 different people in white very ruffley shirts, two satin...

Slug plague apparantly. They like the wet.

yes we have seen more slugs around and black beetle things too (yuk)

I still have a ruffly shirt from the 80s (thought : must have old clothes clear outs more often !)

men will be wearing makeup next

I love a man in makeup

Maybe they can combine the two and wear slugs as eyeliner

Slugs are the bain of my life at the minute.
If they like the bloody wet so much, then why are they taking refuge in my beautifully decorated Laura Ashley front room!
Its not sodding wet in there!!!!

Anyhoooo, romantic revival. Yes very much. I love it. Theres some lovely bits to buy atm.

Warm winter meant more slugs survived...or something...We are being overrun with snails.

Since we are in midst of dodgt 80's revival with leg warmers and giant bright pink plastic earrings, a New Romantic resurgence doesn't seem unlikely....urk!

I'm a slug and so are the dc. We're still not dressed.

Eeeek! Where did you find that creep, LL?

Marina Fri 24-Aug-07 10:06:44

Bring it on! I loved new Romantic fashion and music , less keen on slugs

Marina Fri 24-Aug-07 10:07:31

Oy sauce, that is no creep, that is a much-treasured Love Cat! (Well, to some of us anyway)

I was skidding on slugs while I chased chickens last night til nearly midnight...not in a frilly shirt though

sauce Fri 24-Aug-07 10:10:18

sauce Fri 24-Aug-07 10:11:30
