On Vampires

I love vampires and have since the minute I saw "Interview with the Vampire" in a very crowded theater in New Hampshire, back before Brad was Brangelina and Tom jumped on Oprah's couch.  It was that long ago.  I didn't go to see it because of them, although they did make sexy vampires.  I went to see it because the trailers intriqued me beyond all reason.  You see, until this movie, I hated vampires.  Icky, blood-sucking, freaks of nature.  Yuck.  But something about this movie got me, and wouldn't let go.

Carnage and All Things Con

Cons. Cons. Cons.  In particular, Carnage Con, which is a gaming convention in Fairlee, VT.  I am pretty sure I will be there with my husband this year and I am really looking forward to the weekend.  It's a ways off, November 6th-8th to be exact, so I still have two whole months to wait. But I am very excited because I just love going to Cons.  And this is why.

The Vampire's Assistant

I am typing on my new netbook which is very tiny, but also very black and shiny which makes me happy.  Shiny is good.  Watch Serenity.  I am playing with this shiny, new toy and decide to check out  No overpriced cable for me!  Only problem is I can't really watch any of my favorite TV shows because Hubby is out tonight being a geek with his buddies and if I watch a show now, I'll end up watching it again with him and that's just plain boring.  So, I am browsing through all the other stuff on Hulu and find movie trailers.

Hello World

Everyone blogs.  Okay not everyone.  Up until about 30 seconds ago, I didn't blog.  Now, I'm blogging.  Kinda weird.  Poof.  Just like that I'm a blogger.  Do I get a raise or something?  Because I really think this moment should get some kind of real world recognition for the achievement of, um, turning on the computer and typing some stuff.  Okay, maybe not.  I will be content with toasting myself with another Diet A&W Root Beer.
