I hate bats. They're like pigeons. Rats with wings. They carry diseases, but unlike them pigeons are cuter and nicer.

I read it all the time, I carry it everywhere :lol: Of course I read it before going to bed, too ;) I want to finish it before the end of next week. I really think it's terrifying. I wanted to see the movie based on the book. I started to download Coppola's version of it on emule. Two days ago, I already had 50% of it, but I previewed it and I didn't like it, I freaked out and deleted it... Now I think I am going to download it again.

Tora I thought about you this morning. I had a nightmare about vampires and sims!!!! :twisted: It turns out I am trying to get one of my Sims into a vampire (I am a rookie about that, I've never done it before), so I dreamt that he was not only a vampire but also real, and he wanted to bite me... I was so scared... His wife was a vampire too and both of them were running after me...

I have both the book and the movie on dvd and in my opinion the movie is much more better and it's really scary ( and fun ! :lol: 8) ) i think its one of the most tragic love story that i have ever heard :( and when i was watching how Dracula was crying when lost Mina for second time i just felt sympathy for this lonely creature and his sad destiny .. you should see how at the end of movie he looks at Mina's eyes and says " free me .." and then she gives him a kiss and cut his head off with a sword to free his soul from darkness .. :cry: so touching and effective .. :cry:

Bats? :roll: I just see them sometimes in some caves. I think they are good for farmers because bats' food is mice. They aren't so as terrible as in Dracula. Here's some information about bats.
