Vampires & Weekends

Vampire Weekend? No, not the band.

Anywho, I had a great weekend - as some of you may know, I used to work for Clinique. Well, I spent one night this weekend out w. some of my old co-workers & had the best time. We started w. some Fun Ship Specials (thanks to Carnival Cruise Lines, apparently), then hit up some tacky Nebraska bars w. the locals & drank cheap pitchers of beers.

I then spent the day before class began reading the Sookie Stackhouse books - I thank Mrs. Jetplane & Pink Sass for enticing me to read them. They are constantly talking on Twitter about the series & I couldn't resist. I'm so glad I gave in!

Which leads me to my next thought - what is our deal nowadays w. vampires? Seriously though? Last night Con & I rented 'Daybreakers' which was about, what else, VAMPIRES (oh, & it sucked, literally & figuratively, WHOA!). There's True Blood, Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which I've been watching old episodes of on Netflix, ha!), Transylmania, The Vampire's Assistant, & so on. You get the idea. & BTW, I totally want to read the Bree Tanner book. I know, I know.
Conor says it's just a trend - that pirates were all the rage 4 years ago. Maybe he's right. Either way, we humans must have some major desire to feed on our kind's blood, or have someone feed on ours, because I can't think what else could possibly explain this major phenomenon. I think that if vampies honestly started populating the world, we'd all be panicked & horrified. BUT, it's a lot more fun to think that it'd be fabulously glamorous, sexy fun. I hope it's the latter if such an event ever actually occurs, ha!!

Happy week - it's hawt as heck here in NE, so I'm assuming it is everywhere else in the world as well!

I can't get into the whole vampire thing! Everyone is trying to get me to watch True Blood but I'm not sure I want to give in!

PS. Love Clinque ; )

Being from near New Orleans, Sookie and her Fangy friends are my favorite. Love Trueblood!

I so much wish I weren't such a sucker for the vampire craze. But I am. Ohhh, I am.

I've been wondering the same thing about the vampire craze. There was a (smaller) obsession with vampires in the 90's when the Ann Rice Vampire books were published and the Bram Stoker Dracula movie was made, but nothing like this craze. I do like a good vampire story though...

Looks like you had a fun ladies night!

Seriously, vamps are everywhere. Btw, I LOVE Buffy - kitschy and kick butt.

Sounds like you had a fun packed weekend. I use to wear a Clinique brand lipstick about 10 years ago. It was called something wine. It was discontinued. I loved that shade of lipstick. I agree, our society has gone Vamp crazy. However, I use to live in New Orleans and everyone is Vamp lovers down there (Anne Rice).
