That bat rocked!  Don't diss the bat!  I miss the bat, or maybe, I  
miss the days where we could put on a show of Dracula, complete with  
neck-biting and lascivious slurping sounds, to an elementary school  
audience.  And singe the eyelashes of the Kindergartners in the front  
row with a fire-breathing dragon.

Good times. (Except for the near-electrocution part.)


P.S. I got to be Brunnhilde in The Ring v2.0.
