Vampires In The Summertime

Its snowing heavily, and its cold; so to cheer everyone up I thought I’d post up a summer picture and talk about things less cold.

Its from 2004 and follows a story in the Ham and High about a vampire Talk and slide show being held at Swiss Cottage Library.  I had been invited along as a ‘guest of honour’!

It was a beautiful day, and was scheduled for lunchtime to last a couple of hours.  It was mainly about the origins of the vampire myth and the apparent craze with these following the launch of the Buffy series a couple years earlier.  It was an entertaining two hours, and I was introduced to a lot of the other guests; though I feared I disappointed a few by having to say that, personally, I just could not accept the existence of ‘blood-sucking vampires’.  That said, they were all a nice bunch of people and afterwards a few of us gathered in the Library garden for sandwiches and some beers.  It was on a Saturday and so quite a few people were there.

Anyway, just thought it would make a change for the ‘winter-wonderland’ you can see out of the window at the moment.
