Studying The Biological Clock

I'm glad the Daylight Savings question was just asked! That being said, I remember when I studied abroad in Spain, I lived in this smaller town where everything would shut down between the hours of 2-5. It was great to take those hours for a decent lunch and even if not nap, than to relax. This topic made me think twice about it's beneficial effects and made me wish even more that that kind of break hour could be adopted into American lifestyle.

Why All The Vampires?

Being a young twenty-something, I have to say that as much as I like vampire myth and stories, I find nothing "attractive" about Twilight's Bella who, to me, just seems to swoon when she's hauled over a highly possessive, jealous man's shoulder and is stalked and abandoned over and over. As such, I wish there were a little more discussion on the part of women (and more frequently, men) in vampire lore. There's something to be said as to the victims of vampires as much as the creatures themselves, especially when gender appears to play such a strong role.

That aside, I found the discussion a really wonderful change from the norm, especially the brief talk about the ever changing image and rules regarding vampires. Going from bursting in firey blaze to "sparkling" in the sunlight is quite the change over time. I'm certainly a bigger fan of the former, but I have to say the conversation was very... enlightening
