WTF Wednesday: Oh Dracula, what has happened to our vampires?

Hey my muppets!

So since I’ve decided that my topic of conversation for the week is Twilight and my love/hate relationship for the Saga, I was thinking, how did vampires come to sparkle? Where did the idea of a blood-sucking corpse that happens to be sexy even come from?

The Answer?

Thanks to Google’s dedication to him a few days ago, I learnt about Bram Stoker, the author of the 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula.

Count Dracula, as we all know, was the world’s first novel vampire. He did not sparkle. His powers were: Superhuman strength, is immortal (unless killed by a silver bullet, holy water, a steak to the heart, iron weapons or wild rose), can turn into a bat (and apparently other animals too), he could control the weather and he could vanish.

Since the count there had been many other vampire novels and even films about vampires, some of the most famous ones include Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Other popular vampire films include Van Helsing and Underworld.

Vampires are meant to lure you in by their sexuality, their appetite for flesh, their naughty sense of nature. They’re meant to be irresistible like chocolate when you’re on your strictest diet….

So my question is… WTF Happened???

Stephanie Meyer’s vampires sparkle, are white as powder, are cold like stone, can run fast, have superhuman strengh and are immortal.

You decide what vampire you like best, but in the meantime, I think I’ll watch Queen of the Damned again!

Have a lovely day further peeps!

Manic Monday: The End of the Twilight Saga and the premiere I went to

Good morning my lovelies

Hope your Monday morning starts off better than mine because I think I might have a damn ear infection. Joy of friggin joys.

Anyway, I have some good news for every male that has a girlfriend with an obsession with Edward and Jacob and that is:

So, I’m sure many a boyfriend is pleased with that!

I’ll admit that at one stage I was a woman obsessed, having read (and owned) all the books, albums and DVDs of the Twilight Saga, but alas I’ve grown out of that stage and I am now a fully functional human being. I think.

On Thursday though, I was invited to be a VIP at the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 at Monte Casino and being me and loving free stuff, I was there like a polar bear!

From having glasses of 4th Street Rose wines, to yummy finger snacks to popcorn and Coke and even meeting a Jacob and Edward lookalike (who actually looked nothing like them – LOL), a good time was had and well, the movie wasn’t half bad either!

There’s even one part in the movie that wasn’t even in the book… which totally confused the HELL out of me! Oh and to the one who asked me to add it here as a *spoiler*, it ain’t going to happen! Ha ha!

If you are a fan of the movies though, I don’t think you’ll be dissapointed at all.

Anyway my lovelies, I’m going to go die a slow death with these silly ears of mine that hurt so bad. Have a fabulous Monday!
