Mythology and Folklore


Whoever put together Wikipedia’s ‘Table of Vampire Traits‘ definitely had themselves a little fun – highlights include:


  • Count Duckula – Alluring [citation required]
  • Underworld – Kate Beckinsale


  • Count Chocula – Becomes soggy in milk
  • Count Von Count – Obsessive urge to count anything on hand*

*Whilst he was blatantly created because of the Count/count thing I’ve only just realised that his obsession to count is an actual** vampiric trait – traditionally seeds were a suitable defence which also brings to mind the (quite excellent) X-Files episodeĀ  ‘Bad Blood

**Yeah, not real, whatever…

R2 Beanie

Having spent most of my life avoiding knitwear (every Christmas almost without fail…) I have to say that this is awesome (/geeky)


Complete with pattern.

She’s also made Elmo and Grover hats as well as a complete R2 costume to go with the beanie for her nephew. Frickin awesome.
