Look. I am sick, and I am about to make a batch of “KniQuil” from the new Hot Knives cookbook—which I totally love—so pretty soon hopefully I will be sick AND drunk, and then I will feel okay about spending my Friday night on the couch wearing two pairs of sweatpants and watching the Mandy Moore movie Saved which for some reason I requested from Netflix six months ago. But in the meantime, this Facebook post from Anne Rice is interacting with my cold in a hilarity-producing way:

Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun. They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town —— anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They can afford to be merciful.

I love it.

Did you guys know that Powell's has a bunch of books "from the library of Anne Rice"? That's kind of a weird thing. It appears her copy of Scarred by Struggle, Transformed by Hope is still available....
