The undead and other creatures

I don't know what has happened, but I've been exhausted over the last few days. I slept most of yesterday and I slept in again today. Where has this come from?

New Moon, the next in the Twilight series, has opened today to rather bad reviews. I'm not all that surprised; the trailers make it seem like there's a lot of teen angst going on. The acting doesn't look all that good, either... there and I'm not sure about the story. That movie isn't marketing to me, of course. I'd see it as long as I didn't have to pay full price.

You know, I don't really get the whole "vampire wants to date a teenager" thing. After all, these vampires are at least a hundred years old, right? So what do they see in a teenager? Sure, teenagers have nubile, young bodies, but that only goes so far - the two have to talk to each other eventually, if they're going to have a relationship. Don't get me wrong; teenagers are fun and interesting to be around and I love to hang out with the ones in my family, but I'm not sure I could date one (even if it was legal for me to do that).

I think I like zombies because they're so much less complicated; they'll eat anyone.
