I had some serious squee for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. First of all, axe-fu and coat-tail tango! Is sweet. Second, I didn't recognize Ben Walker from any other movie, but I did recognize that he is all kinds of nice to look at. Also didn't recognize Rufus Sewell at first, but there he was. I like him too.

I went to see the movie with my cousin, who is a teacher and knows historical inaccuracy when he sees it. He also spotted the trouble with the flag at the end. We both agreed that it was nice to see scary vampires again, even if they were prancing around in daylight. There was plenty of disbelief to suspend, but I'm good at that and I liked it. It was fun, it was pretty, and had definite tones of badassery here and there. Try it!

I dreamed there was a little vampire child named Collette. She had long claws and when I wasn't being as frightened as she wanted me to be, she stabbed them through the book I was reading. That did startle me. She tried to stab me, but I dodged and she only got my shirt. So while I was figuring out how I was going to get away with staking a cute little girl through the heart, I started noticing that all the other little kids around had gone all Rennfield on me.

Not only where they going bonkers, but their bodies were transforming into cartoony twisted shapes. Kinda like these. A kid came up to me all freaked out and started bubbling liked bad claymation. He kept saying "I'm going, I'm going!" until I freaked and yelled "No, you're not!" and clubbed him over the head with my laptop. It didn't help. He turned into a gobliny thing, flapped his arms, and flew away. Yes, he did. And then up pops Collette and she says the crazy line from this dream, which was "He'd be a perfect pet for your gryphon."

If I hadn't been dodging the mutant children, I would've been very interested in this gryphon of mine, but while this went on a little girl with long blond hair went zombie. Her hair curled up into a poodle perm and her eyes got really blue until one cracked like glass and turned yellow. Then Collette started after me and I decided I had had enough and woke up.

Fic of the Day: 30 Days of Night

I stepped on my own woolly socks in the dark last night and about scared myself silly. How pathetic is that? In my defense, I do live with cats that try to kill me by getting under my feet on the stairs and also like to leave dismembered baby bunnies for me to step on (see an earlier entry for that trauma), and I have been finding severed animal parts outside, but stepping barefooted into unexpected fuzziness shouldn't cause a "WUH-Auuuuugh!" in the middle of the night.

Then again, the neighbors deserve it for their midnight furniture rearranging.

First of all, I woke up early with a weird dream that I was actually reaching for the dream book to write down before I fell asleep again. All I remember now is that there was an old man who could turn into something else, sitting on a bed in his boxers and undershirt. There was a lot more to it than that... I remember going over it in my head when I first woke up to be sure I remembered it all and I did. But then. Snooze. Forget. All gone.

And my usual Ward vs. Technology was outdoing itself today. I killed every electronic device I got my hands on. A fully-charged ipod died. The school computer couldn't remember any passwords. My own computer slowed to a crippled crawl. I'm surprised the lights didn't flicker.

I don't know if it's related, but I do seem to have an electric charge today. Walking down the hall at work, I could feel the hair around my face stand up and bristle. I started tapping metal doorknobs all the way and I was throwing blue arcs all the way to the room.

Last week's fics were all about girls. (and the all started with the word 'she') so this week is gonna be guy fics, if I can get em all written The first one is here. In case you don't know, Eben is the husband Stella was pining for in the May 1st fic.

Four more days til I go home! Wahhh!
