Old School Vampires.

I've read "Dracula". I've read biographies on Vlad the Impaler. I've read Anne Rice. I've read "The Historian" (which is one of my favoritest books ever). I've also read the Twilight series and Laurell K. Hamilton. So I'm fairly well acquainted with vampire lore. Ok, now that's been established, moving on.

I overheard the following discussion at B&N this past weekend. It was conducted by two lovely girls who were trying-and failing-to dress goth. "Man, they've gone too far from old-school vampires. Vampires shouldn't be all twinkly. And what's with going out in daylight? The old ones exploded when they did that!"

I've made up a bit of that, since I don't have a photographic memory, but the gist is the same. I started giggling as I overheard their conversation. I wasn't dropping no eaves, mind, I was cleaning up the kids department and they were in the same area talking loudly. I was giggling because in Stoker's "Dracula" the old-school vampire had developed the ability to go out in sunlight. The entire episode of teenage angst over modern authors departing from traditional vampire mores was incredibly funny to me. Maybe it's not to other people? I have the ability to turn a hilarious story into a dud when retelling it.

But come on, the combination of failed goth dressers, angst, drama, anger at the modern world of vampire publishing, all for the wrong reasons? Funny!

Orclette's Latest

Heard while she was on the toilet:

"Momma, the poop is coming out of my left arm!"

When she is older she will no doubt be absolutely horrified that I would share this with people:)

BTW, she knows about the large and small intestines. We were at the doctor's office and there was a poster of someone's innards up on the wall. We spent a pleasant 15 minutes discussing what each part was and what its function was.
