Share Your World – Week 177

Bite her neck? Surely you can’t be serious!

Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!!!  It was on May 26, 1897 that Irish author Bram Stoker published the novel that is the main reason his name is still known over a century later…. Dracula.  The way we view vampires has never been the same since, particularly once Hollywood got a hold of Stoker’s titular count and turned him into a horror legend.  While it’s very much up in the air who exactly Stoker based the character of Count Dracula on, the runaway winner in the jury of popular opinion is a 15th Century figure known as Vlad the Impaler, whose legacy has long been incorporated into the Dracula mythology…

Not to be confused with George the Impaler.

And of course, May 26th is a very special day at The Nest, as WordPress has long declared this day to be our FAKE ANNIVERSARY!

Yay! I get two anniversaries!

And how funny that there’s a mention of Whitby in that image (from my 2015 FAKE ANNIVERSARY), which was the English town Dracula haunts in the book!

No, I did not sign up with WordPress on May 26, 2011…. that would several months later on December 24th.

Alright, it’s time to put on my garlic necklace and answer this week’s Share Your World questions!  SYW hosted, as always, by Melanie…

Better save the biggest piece for Dracula…

If You Could Be Best Friends With A Celebrity, Who Would It Be?

Well, I tried to be BFF’s with Regis Philbin 21 years ago, but that didn’t work out….

There aren’t many people I can get along with, so I’ll opt to go with man’s best friend and choose the original party animal, Spuds McKenzie…

Poor Spuds, always getting blue balled due to bestiality laws.

What is, or should be, the main purpose of law?

To keep all those lawyers employed.  You think I want to work with those assholes at Mecca?

Without law, there are no shady lawyers.

Do You Care About Reviews?

Reviews?  Where?  I’m actually always curious to know what people think about me…. good, bad or ugly!

How about some recycled classic material from The Nest?  Four years ago, I did a series of special features on each of my Shelf critters, and for Rainy, I included her “reacting” to some of the customer reviews on Amazon for the replicas of her they were selling…

RAINY: He? HE!?!?!? Did you even bother to turn me over and check my bits!?!? And I am NOT a vase!!!! How dare you plug up my rain gauge with nasty weeds that your little brats pulled up out of the ground for you! I did NOT find this review helpful as all!

RAINY: Take me outside! TAKE ME OUTSIDE!!! It never rains INSIDE! I will do very well outside, just as long as your neighbors’ mutts don’t get any funny ideas…

RAINY: Fit!?!?!? Fit WHERE!?!? What did you do with me!?!?!? And why did you give me five stars afterwards!?!?!?!?

RAINY: I definitely am the only one of my kind in existence…. but why are you disappointed in my size? Why would I need to be bigger? Did I not FIT!?!?!? WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE DOING WITH THESE RAIN GAUGES!?!?!?!?!?!?

RAINY: JUNK!?!?!? I’m just broken JUNK!?!?!? You obviously do not know how to treat a skunk lady right. Here, let me show you what I can do with this JUNK!

Recycled jokes never stink!

Is the ‘mind’ different to the ‘brain’? If so, in what ways?

The brain is a thing, the mind is a concept.  You’ll never have to worry about being invited to a fancy party and being served monkey’s minds….

I dunno, maybe you should check Congress.

Overall how sunny is your nature?

You’re asking this of a night person?  I’ll burn up like Dracula in the sunlight…

  1. Interesting review for Rainy indeed……that Kym person can’t spell (but that’s pretty common these days) and I’d be worried about the not fitting comment too. Sounds just a tad too kinky (and painful). Oh and Happy Fakeaversary!

  2. Hahahahhaha snicker chortle guffaw… Thanks so much Bill for Sharing Your Critter World. (I got tears here from laughing)…hahaha. All your answers just tickled me silly, and I really didn’t need any help with that! 😄😂😅🤣😆 The ‘toon extra? Perfect! I hope Rainy gets some moisture soon, dried up lady bits are nothing anyone wants – to see OR to have! I like your explanation of brain/mind..that’s one of the best I’ve read! So, George is a vampire unicorn.. hmmm. Will it be copyright infringement if a vampire unicorn pops up in one of my short stories? I’d never tread on thee. Have a great week!

    • Rainy’s dry bits are probably why she is so surly and sprays first, asks questions later. I don’t know if George is a vampire, but all unicorns can be champion impalers…

  3. Happy {albeit fake} blogaversary. As for vampires, Bram and Hollywood..I’m pretty serious but please don’t call me Shirley.

    Poor Vlad. You impale a few people, a bit of gentle disembowelling, a casual decapitation here and there and suddenly you’re the world’s most infamous vampire…
