No, but I like eating wings. Buffalo wings, barbecue wings, fried wings, etc.

Well, has any Dracula actor really nailed the Romanian accent? Bela Lugosi was Hungarian, Christopher Lee was English, Frank Langella is Italian-American, and Gary Oldman was so over the top I was in pain. I didn't mind Jourdan because the BBC version stuck closest to the story, remembering that Jonathan and Mina are the main characters, not Dracula. Of course, if I had the chance to make Dracula into a movie or a TV miniseries, I doubt any viewer would survive. I'd show Coppola how it's supposed to be done. I never saw Butler's Dracula, though.

And I'm sorry, but I never got around to the Silmarillion. Put that on my bucket list.


TPBM has read I Am Legend?

With Jourdan it was more than a French accent, it was a very French manner. Bela Lugosi was a Hungarian from an area that's now in Romania. Dracula was meant to be a Hungarian from an area that's now in Romania.

Nope. Are you legend?

TPBM has eaten I Am Legend?

No, I don't eat paper.

I Am Legend, sum1. The classic vampire horror novel by Richard Matheson that was the direct inspiration for George Romero's Night of the Living Dead. It was recently desecrated by that despicable Will Smith movie.

True, Hungary is sandwiched between Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, and Romania. Transylvania is closer to central Romania, however, and Wallachia(where Vlad Dracula ruled) is on the southern border with Bulgaria.

TPBM has read Wuthering Heights?

Yeah, I've heard of the book. I don't have much time for Romero and his films.

Transylvania used to be a part of Hungary and its original population was Hungarian.

Yes.

TPBM dislikes Jane Austen?

Nah, just not interested that much.

I didn't know that Transylvania once extended that far west.


TPBM can speak another language?

A little. I need more than a week off at a time, I need a new job, a new home, a new life.


TPBM hates it when towns or counties ban certain holidays(like Halloween) for "not being inclusive enough"?

I despise it. You're lucky you haven't seen it. It hasn't happened where I live, but I've heard about it happening in other states.


TPBM likes family reunions?

Now that would be telling.

TPBM asks too many questions?
