1,000 Year Old Viking Vampire


So a few months back, I wrote the following status update on Facebook. Bear with me; I posted the entire interaction: (left out real names to protect the, er, innocent)

Claire Smith RE: TrueBlood; I don’t get the attraction to Eric.

Gail Munroe


Oh, Claire. You poor thing.
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

I apologize. Perhaps he’s simply not my type… or I haven’t seen enough episodes yet?
John Orr


Fun fact: His father is this guy who you see in a load of movies but don’t know who he is

Hello? Viking! 😉
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

Yes, I get the Biking thing but I imagined him… bulkier.
John: I had a feeling they were related. 🙂

Claire Smith

*Viking.
Annie McDermott


HA HA HA…
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

Annie, I can’t tell if that’s because you’ve seen it and are mocking me or… well, just mocking me in general. 🙂
Annie McDermott


I am laughing at “Biking”…because it is funny… I mean, it really made me laugh as I scrolled past – I don’t know anything about this show. I’m still laughing… Typos are funny… You are funny… I am not mocking… I am *laughing*…
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

You know, in the context, “biking” is rather amusing. Typos *are* pretty funny. But still, I’ll take Bill over Eric, thank you.
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

Ha ha, thanks for the, er, evidence.
Annie McDermott


Oh, THAT guy. One of my best girlfriends is madly, badly in love with him. In fact, she sometimes admins @ two different pages for said “Biking.” I mean, she’s almost religious about him. I borrowed her copy of “Generation Kill” (not sure if you’ve seen it) which stars said Biker and she’s going bananas without it. Me? I am SUPER “Meh…” about said dude. I’d need to see this “Bill” person to judge him.
Annie McDermott


I said “said” two times twice repeatedly. There you are. 😛
Annie McDermott


THREE! Cripes… Sorry…
Rory Lee


Eric is everyone’s type.
Claire Smith

Claire Smith

Even yours, Rory? 😉
Rory Lee


I love me some Eric.
***********************
But you see, I was naive then, before I’d finished watching season one and before I’d ever set eyes on season 2. For now, NOW, I get it. It’s like how I never used to understand the attraction to vampire novels and movies before, I suddenly do understand it. And a Viking vampire, well, that’s just overload. I mean, really! Feast your eyes; go ahead. Look.
I may be 30 freaking years old but by god, I can still have crushes right? He’s tall and built and all kinds of the perfect vampire, now that that all makes sense to me. Maybe I just had to grow up to get it. When I was 16 and I read Anne Rice, it was all “meh” to me.
So yeah, I have one episode left of season 2 but I am putting off watching it because I know then it’ll all be over and I’ll want it to be June for season 3 and we don’t have HBO so what am I gonna do then?? Huh??? I may employ Facebook once again and see whose house I can invade to watch it. 🙂
