While driving back from the in-laws tonight, something came up that reminded me of an anecdote that I recalled to Sweet Enemy. It doesn't take much for me to decide to tell an anecdote.
While in Kodiak, a friend and I were watching the awful Grace Jones vampire flick "Vamp" on VHS. This was the movie about a coven/clutch/herd of female vampires. We're about halfway through when my friend's roommate came in. Laconic as usual, he stood and watched for a bit, then deadpanned,
Then he walked away. My friend and I just fell over laughing.
This led to a discussion of different vampires by SE and I.
Glampire = bloodsucker who like 1970s British rock music
Spampire = bloodsucker who work in email marketing
Alakazampire = vampire magician
Drampire = bloodsucker who only takes a drink now and then
Prampire = bloodsucker who preys on infants
Slampire = bloodsucker that haunts punk and hardcore shows
Trans-ampire = the only vampires to wear a mullet
Crampire = bloodsucker who studies too much
Whampire = bloodsucker who wake you up before he'll go (go)
Lampire = a bloodsucking light fixture
Scrampire = bloodsucker who leaves very quickly
Wham-bam-thank-you-ma'ampires = the much hipper version of the scrampire
Hampire = Bela Legosi
Sampire = a blood-seeking anti-aircraft missile
Rampire = bloodsucking sheep
Shampire = not a real vampire at all. Rather like the ones from Twilight. Which is the sort of relevance of the is post as the third sparklies vs. plushie huskies movie just came out.
That's all we've got. It's late and we're tired. Anybody got one?
