Eclipse, Vampires, Anxiety


I went to the movies today! I haven't been in such a long time cause of the anxiety issues I have. I watched the twilight movie eclipse. I don't really see the fascination, but then again I'm 33, not 15! It was entertaining at least. Twilight was just not my kind of thing.

Don't get me wrong it's not the whole vampire thing, I have been on the vampire bandwagon way back in the early ninties. It started with Buffy. Oh I loved Buffy, she was strong, wooden stack wielding, and cute, she always cared about what she looked like. She was also in love with the cutest vampire at the time.

Oh Angel, we miss you, but thank you for coming back as Seeley Booth.


Now I love the whole Trueblood series. I have also read some of the Sookie Stackhouse books and loved them! I find the Twilight vampires a little tame. I think if there was such a thing as a immortal being, incredibly strong, who's existence relied on blood out there. They would be very scary or at least, cause they live for hundreds of years, want to mess with people just a little, you know..... for fun?!

My grandmother was Russian, so she believed that vampires existed. As a kid thinking that vampires actually existed but in the mother land, was strange and scary. Not the blood sucking kind, more the, you become a vampire if you die and you haven't been baptised Christian Orthodox. A heretic! Your soul wasn't/isn't protected when you die, so you had a higher chance of becoming the undead. If you were a witch the chance of becoming a vamp increased even more!

This is the web dictionary definition of a vampire. Um what is with number 4???!!!
