No vampires, please

I have to admit I don’t quite get the whole Twilight thing. From what I’ve caught of the movies in the wee hours when I’m not sleeping – most nights, that would be – quite frankly, they’re not very good. And what’s with the strange blue pall over everything in the first one (I think that was the first one)? Is that some kind of symbolism about the deadness of vampires, or, as with most “literary interpretation”, total bunk and just something the filmmaker thought would be kind of cool? My guess is the latter. To me, it just looked like my fingers on a really cold morning.

However, in the event there are vampires out there in the world, of the real, rather than cinematic versions, we are stocking up nicely.

Thirteen frames of garlic this round. Next season, I intend to have more, given the way we go through garlic around here, and in order to have enough to replant. Despite the variable weather, it’s all holding up quite nicely and looks very healthy.

We won’t have any particular issues with bloodsuckers around here, I think. Zombies, on the other hand – well, let’s just say that I firmly believe that because zombies live on brains, they’ll rapidly starve to death out in the world in general.
