I might have a vampire fetish…

I like horror in general and I like vampire stuff, but no more than any other creature of the night. But now I’m not so sure.

My favourite thing in the world is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but that doesn’t automatically translate to a vampire fetish. Not on it’s own. I like Ann Rice and Dracula but I can do without cheesy vampire b movies.

Then along comes True Blood and I think I might be developing a little obsession. Three episodes in and I can’t wait for the next one. The anticipation is too much to handle so I order book 1 of the Charlaine Harris novels the series is based on.

Which leads me down an analytical path because the series is so much better than the book. There’s a lot of learning there which I’m working into a forthcoming post. And while I’m in a reflective, analytical mood it occurs to me that I might have a vampire fetish. More to ponder…

Hello, my life, how I’ve missed you

I have a job! Yes, that’s right, job hunting is over and my life can resume.

It’s amazing how much time looking for a job takes. I don’t think I’m cut out for short term contract work. I’m looking forward for a couple of years of stability in a permanent job with regular hours. Yay. Plus, I’ll have an hour’s commute each way so I’m really looking forward to cracking through the two bookcases of un-read books in my study. Then there’s the piles of short stories. Can’t wait!
