Look, look, a sketch! Not a picture from Second Life showing my 1337 SL jewelry making skills. Another random title to do with fish… I don’t get it, but I like it anyway. Yay for fish. Fish are good. Even Babelfish.

No real rhyme or reason behind the picture today, other than the fact that I had both black and red biros sitting in front of me saying ‘you need to do a sketch today: go on, be a rebel, use both of us… at once!’ So I did, and this little lady is the result. I’m actually thinking that perhaps the title of this post is in reference to her? Not so much because she might have a secret fetish for Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and more to do with the fact that she’s now been turned into a bloodthirsty (yet still adorable) vampire.

Vampires apparently have no need to eat… and perhaps she used to love fish and chips so much that she ate it for dinner every night. Or maybe she had a rare disease that required her to eat gigantic amounts of fish to balance out some vitamin deficiency and she really actually hates fish, so being bitten and turned into a vampire corrects that issue since she’s no longer… well… alive. Vampires have no need for fish. She’s just being ironic. Who knows… it’s fun to ponder though, isn’t it?

On a related note (this may just go to explain why my mind is skipping here and there and I am raving like a lunatic), I had a nap yesterday afternoon which threw everything out of kilter and resulted in me being awake the entire night long. I dragged myself up to bed soon after daybreak and laid down as the hubby was getting ready for work. You know you love your husband (or you are exceedingly lazy) when he pulls the blind open, putting you in the path of direct, glarey sunlight first thing in the morning and then goes ‘huh… I’ll try a stake next time’… and it doesn’t result in giving him the noogeying of a lifetime.

I’m so tired today… but to avoid another vamp-night, I think I’d best just suck it up (pun sorta intended) and stay awake for the rest of the day. Wish me luck. Those blankets are looking mighty tempting right now.

Edit: Just for those interested… after writing this post, I came across an interesting article talking about the role of vampires and the undead in current popular media offerings here and thought I might come back and add it in. Rather interesting!
