I need to cut my lawn. Do you think I'll need to do it again before the winter?

The stripey snail has now also disappeared.

And DS has just left for 2nd year at uni [sniff]

slowreader · 24/09/2007 20:46

Oh Rustybear!
Cheer up. The terms are very short.

My mother used to play bowls

I just play silly beggers on MN.

I don't buy personalised pencils for dd as she only has them for a femtosecond....(or half a gnats fart in old money) before she loses them.

I am watching Corrie, and Hayley has blood on her good green cardi.

Oh poor you Rusty

RB URGENT could he have taken the snail?

RustyBear · 24/09/2007 20:49

I know - he'll be back before I know it and [cheers up] I don't have any competition for the corner seat of the sofa anymore!

RustyBear · 24/09/2007 20:50

Not the stripey one - he definitely hasn't been outside since I last saw it.

He has been home on his own all day though, and I forgot to interrogate him re the brown one before he left...

Blandmum · 24/09/2007 20:50

and if he has taken the snail, will it be able to use its homing instinct to get back home.

And will the nail polish on its shell stop it fitting in with all the other university snails!?

Hugs to you !

and why is this thread not on the home page???

We've got to over 400 posts and no-one has stropped, founced or told anyone to fuck off.....this must be some sort of mellow record on MN

(sorry that was too exciting a post. I will spank myself in a dull way0

How long will it take a snail to get from Warwick to Wokingham?

RustyBear · 24/09/2007 20:54

MB - seeing your post about femtoseconds reinded me - when my brother worked for BAe they used to measure the wingspan of planes in light-femtofortnights.

slowreader · 24/09/2007 20:55

They will both be back before you know it.
MB I am fairly convinced snails secrete a natural nail varnish remover so should not be socially disadvantaged.
Rusty fancy letting him go off without checking him for snails. My ds ate one once I had to prise his mouth open and scrape the goo off his teeth.

RustyBear · 24/09/2007 20:56

Presumably your DS was a little younger than mine at the time.....

Slubberdegullion · 24/09/2007 20:59

Rusty, re question: How long will it take a snail to get from Warwick to Wokingham?

I think we're going to need species to find out average distance covered per day, taking into factors such as wind speed, motorways to cross, nail varnish weight etc.

Blandmum · 24/09/2007 21:00

assuming the snail travels ay 0.03 miles /hour (as quoted on t'interweb) abd warwick is 87 miles from Wokingham, it will take the sanil 2900 hours, or 120 days or around 4 months!

Ds will be back before the snail unless he gives the snail a lift.

I'll be in Warwick uni in November. Do you want me to look out for snail?

It is awful to think of that poor snail trecking all that way non stop and missing Christmas.

slowreader · 24/09/2007 21:08

Never mind the hazards on the way like non echoing ducks and ds who would eat it yet.

RustyBear · 24/09/2007 21:11

Actuallly, just realised it's not Warwick, it's Leamington - DS has moved off campus. So the snail might just have reached Warwick by the time you get there.....
This is what it looks like btw.
If you want to try spotting DS as well, he's on my profile.

Slubberdegullion · 24/09/2007 21:13

lol @ slowreader and the snail missing Christmas.

MB, admit it, you quite enjoyed working that out didn't you.

CatIsSleepy · 24/09/2007 21:13

j20baby, why doesn't a duck's quack echo?

Blandmum · 24/09/2007 21:14

does the snail know that he/she is going to lemington, and is the snail OK with the change of destination?

Shall I look for it when I go to Warwick? If it starts now we might be able to meet up by November. I could take it a pencil of you like.
