Problems Vampires Have, Page 4
This has problems pertaining to dealing with "everyday" (everynight?) things for real vampires. It can get in a light vein, but I would prefer it to be mainly enlightening (jeez, can I quit with these day puns, already???) as to actual problems that vampires have to deal with on a day-to-day (aaarrrggghhh!!!) basis.
1. How many times must people feel compelled to advise me to 'Go out and get some sun' followed by the classic 'You are so pale, are you sick or something?' At this point I smile enough to show some fang. That usually shuts them up.
2. In the field I am employed in, there are NO night shifts!
3. Summer. Too much sun, the days are too long, and it is not cold enough. I do not like to be warm...
4. Blood nowadays is risky, to say the least. I find myself nursing a cut finger way too often....
5. I will stick my neck out on this one, but RPG'ers annoy me to no end. I have no issue with people playing games. Fantasy is a vital part of keeping one's head on straight, you need it. But I am not a game player, I am a vampire. Being hounded for 'tips' on how to get very pale and in other respects look like on of the kindred is very tiresome.
6. Generally feeling removed and remote from others of my kind. The Internet is the most wonderous tool for contacting others, but I like knowing that others are close.
That is the tip of my iceberg. Thanks for listening.

People romantizing vampires and vampirism...it ain't all that romantic.
It's really not romantic when you can't sleep because you are feeling the need and you toss and turn and have bloody, vampirically oriented dreams that only serve to intensify what brought them on in the first place. And then when you do get up finally, you are tired and haggard and drained and feeling the thirst still, and you sign on to check your email and see all these peeps writing you to say "Oh, it's so romantic."
Okay, then, come on over, let me feed from you, if it's so romantic. I'm always on the lookout for fresh blood... *Sanguinarius grins a little too sweetly*

And OakSpirit adds: Just my two cents here..but actually Sanguinarius is just putting it mildly what some vampyres experience. There is nothing romantic about the blood lust that haunts "Some" vampyres. The way the lust fills you and pulls at your total being, to the point you want to jump out of your skin, when all you can see is the energy flowing within the blood of everybody around you, when you begin to smell it everywhere and in some cases the smell is so strong you can almost taste its essence, but in reality NOT having a damn person you know who you can feed from. That is why I believe there are so many psychic vampyres because at least the lust can be filled with sexual energy or which ever kind you choose to feed from. It's either that or drawing from yourself, in which many cases needs to be done again for *Some* vampyres.
This happened to me in high school. My theater class had a "study hall" instead of class one day. I laid down on the floor and dozed off. I woke up to the sound of people standing around me asking if they should try CPR or something, since they thought I wasn't breathing. When I sat up and asked what the HELL they were doing, several people literally screamed and wouldn't have anything to do with me for the rest of the year.

i need to bitch..hope you don't mind
OHHHH GOOOD WHYYYY!!! Why do I have to be so stupid when I know myself better than that? What, did I forget?! For one thing I've been Bloodlusting all day, don't know why I just fed a few days ago I should be fine! BBBUUUUTTTT NOOOO.... Intoxicating, as I stand there suddenly getting to close to the person standing in front of me untill I nearly touch this person I don't know other than the fact he got in the line a second before I did. Then the pissiness, where I stand and curse everyone who walks past as I suddenly wish to scream at nothing and throw a huge tantrum. Then it passes like nothing happened and all I want to do is go to sleep,but I can't because I have a life! Then as I say to myself all day "There is no way I can stay up tonight, I'm much to tired." then as I'm sitting going "Gee,what can I do now? I want to do something." Then I happen to look at the clock as I mutter "Oh fuck, it's twelve o' clock in the morning, dammit!" (Or later, depending.)
Then I get sick of people going "Why are you wearing sunglasses now? We're inside.etc." So of course I felt the need to overcome this as I wander around inside a store or something I won't wear them as I squint and go "Fuck I cant see shit!" I thought I was fooling everyone into thinking I actually could see untill someone came up to me and went "Are you okay? You look like you're going to cry? What's wrong with you're eyes, do you have something in them?" Just burst my bubble why don't you!
Then of course you get the people who don't want to do things when you do because they're tired, and you're not. They tell you to wake up in the morning to do things when they want to do them, and then they ask what wrong with you, or "You were just fine last night, what's wrong now?"
Then you start to forget that the sun hurts dammit! So of course I feel invincible once more and walk around all day (Actually not all day, no more than an hour before I start to feel light-headed and have to go inside) and think "I'll be fine I'm in the shade I don't want to wear long sleeves it's to hot and all the other people are in shorts so I'll be fine." Not now you stupid bastard, it hurts don't it?! Yes of course it hurts! My skins trying to fall off and I wasn't even outside that long!!!
That's almost as bad as the time I decided to go to the beach. I wasn't stupid enough then to wear short sleeve or even -- God forbid -- a bathing suit, but nontheless I sat on the shore watching people enjoy themselves and talk about me. "See that wierd person sitting there in long sleeves and pants?" I can't get sun screen to work! Why can't I get sun screen to work! Does it go any higher?!
I don't eat much,and I hate it because it makes me feel bad when people want to eat when I eat. I told him there wasn't much chance of that happening soon so if he was hungry he better eat now not when I did. Stupid prick! But still he did quite well in keeping up though I could hear his stomach growling. He went from noon to seven wihout eating just because he didn't want to eat untill I was ready. What can you say? Is that normal?
I'm in pain *whimper* I hurt, I want blood, and my eyes feel like they got something in them, but there's nothing there.
It's one thirty and I have to wake up in the morning, not to early, but early enough. People don't understand me, and I feel miserable. I devoured a whole head of lettuce, and still want blood. It took the edge off but not the whole craving...That came back. I hate these moments, I pet my very frisky cat and when he half way-nibbles my hand he suddenly goes limp and starts to go to sleep. I'm talking hiper active pussy goes limp while cocking his ears this way and that then walks away a little wobbly. What's that?!
Welcome to my world! These are the times I want to run out to any wannabe and go "Here! It's yours I don't want it." I wanna stand outside and not worry that I'm going to feel it in a few moments. I wanna walk around a store and not worry that the people thinks something's wrong with me because I'm trying to see without sunglasses, let alone outside! I wanna tan!! I don't want to see what I see! The dreams I get and the blood is the only thing I'm enjoying right now! And I could get that without burning and being blind, and all the other things I'm not going to mention!
Life sucks right now. (and not in the right way) SHOOT ME SHOOT ME NOW!!!
Then I think "It's not so bad...Just one of those days."
Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
