Normal Bedtime Story

“‘Normal’ is a bedtime story — a fable — that humans tell themselves to feel better when faced with overwhelming evidence that most of what’s happening around them is not ‘normal’ at all.”
~ Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches (pg. 86)


Vampire Chronicles vs True Blood

“Well bred vampires never spill a drop of blood. They don’t let blood drip out of their mouths or run down their chins or get on their clothes. Never.  That is why they are so upset when they cry blood tears.  The majority of vampires are very neat and merciful feeders who gently embrace their victims and guide them into a swoon as they drink the blood.  You would not believe the laughter in this house when vampires come to watch True Blood on HBO.  They think it’s hilarious.” ~ Anne Rice
