Eating nicely

I put up my hand - I love vampire books, I love vampire movies - well some of them, but I really don't like it when they don't eat nicely. How come they have to get blood EVERYWHERE! Did no one teach them to eat with any finesse? I do get that they are rather - er - passionate once the blood lust is up but they make such a mess. An odd dribble or two is fine - I can cope with that- but there's so much red stuff it turns me right off.
Mind you - I did once throw up when I watching WWF because there was blood involved so maybe its just me!! I'm not phobic about blood - I have to have mine tested every couple of weeks and I'm quite happy to watch the plebotomist - but making a mess while you're eating? No thanks.

My vampires are tidy eaters!!

Oh, I agree, Barbara. I watched a TV show last night (Becoming Human, I think?) and the vamp was really messy and aggressive when he fed. Really turned me off. Yuck. You'd think they'd learn some table manners. :)

That's the English series? That does have supernaturals with no table manners at all! Really and British as well. It's not right. LOL

I have that show recorded, but haven't watched yet. I'm actually looking forward to it. I like the vamps that are the romantic hero to be not so messy, but I love when there are vamps that are really mean, evil, and messy. After all, the reality would be that vamps are in fact evil. Even if we like to romanticize them :)

Very true, Rebecca! I'm afraid I'm the same with werewolves as I am with vamps. I want them to be cuddly when they shift not all fangs and claws. I'm a wimp at heart.
