The Passage by Justin Cronin

April 14, 2012

The Passage by Justin Cronin is one of my Christmas books. I read about it last year and my brother loved it, so I was looking forward to ┬álosing myself in a good book. It’s very well written and I am getting lost, but man, this book is scaring the crap out of me. It’s purely fictional, containing more than a few vampires, and for some unknown reason, I dread going to sleep at night. My imagination goes into overdrive and I’m having the weirdest dreams. The other night I woke up at 3:30 AM, jolted out of a sound sleep, sure that someone was pounding on our front door. The fact that the dogs weren’t barking was the only clue it happened in my dream. (Unless the vampires got them first???)

Yeah, my nightlight’s staying on for a while!

Hornets, Vampires and Dreams

September 18, 2007
I had a weird dream last night. I dreamt that there were vampires attacking the house, but before they evolved into true vampires, they started as hornets. I was running around trying to kill as many of the hornets as I could before they turned. Do you remember the arcade game where you hit the gopher on the head but more keep popping up? Imagine that times a hundred. And there was the added delight of the whole blood sucking fiend thing….
I have decided to blame this partly on Christopher Moore. I recently finished his book You Suck which was hysterical and that was in my mind. Also, we are having an episode of wasps (to some office mates an epidemic – in reality there were only 3) at my office. Together, it begins to explain the dream. The whole mutation from hornet to vampire is thanks to my slightly warped mind. Brings a whole new meaning to Killer Bees though:)
