If you could, would you want to be a vampire?

I think this would depend on your definition of vampire. If you are talking about western vamps like dracula, it is not exactly that tempting.. If you are talking about chinese vamps like those zombies jumping around with talismans stuck on their foreheads, no way too. But if you are talking about the "new" kind of vamps popularised by the writer, Ann Rice, then yes, both hands up.

hahaha! you've got some good point there. ancient kinds of vampires are not cool. anne rice's vampires on the other hand, they are not just cool, they are good-looking also and they seem to enjoy their "vampireness". ^__^

Ummmmmm?................................................No. Blood is just too yummy and I would never want to lose the taste for it by being forced to have too much of it. But that goes for anything I have a taste for.

Of course I would. The whole eternity thing might get dull after awhile though.

I love the romantic side of the new age vamps. But the idea of having to take life like that really dampens the appeal. As for the sun, I could take it or leave it. I really am much more of a night person. And the thought of eternity, well again all vamp stories tell of their demise so really living forever isn't really a factor, it's more like determining how long you really want to live for. I do like the idea that Anne Rice has put forth where you can sleep for a long while and awake to a whole new changed world. That would certainly be more interesting.

No, not at all they creep me out. I don't even like watching movies with vampires in them. It would be a horrible life to have to hunt for my food and then the food be a human life.

Interesting topic. I love vampires and such, but if I we're condemned to a solitary life as one, I wouldn't want to be. If my friends and family were, I could cope. It also depends on the consequences, etc.

Yes. It would'nt be that big of an adjustment for me, I already stay up till dawn. And plus I like to be seperated from other people a little bit.

I wouldnt want to be a vampire! i dont like blood. i dont like to transform into a bat. and lastly and most importantly, i dont want to live forever. i'll probably get tired of life. I'll probably feel like what the characters of brad pitt and kirsten dunst felt in the movie "interview with the vampire", i forgot their names there. I can only remember Lestat played by tom cruise. ^__^ but i do like vampire films and novels though. i've actually read a few of the vampire chronicles of anne rice, watched several vampire movies and i have bram stoker's dracula novel. ^__^
