Thursday (8/26/10) 4:50pm - ... wherein Spanish just wants to be left alone with a bottle of gin and three units of AB-.

This week's situation:  "You are a non-sparkly vampire."



Look, magic instructors survived Harry Potter; we can weather this.

Mira, los instructores de magia sobrevivió Harry Potter, que puede resistir a esto.


I'm not sure what's creepier:  being pursued by underage girls, or being pursued by girls who want the receiving end of an abusive, controlling relationship.

No estoy seguro de lo que es más espeluznante: ser perseguido por las niñas menores de edad, o siendo perseguido por las chicas que quieren el extremo receptor de una relación abusiva y controlanda.


Yeah, keep laughing, werewolves.

Sí, mantenga riendo, hombres lobo.


Once upon a time, fairies were considered dangerous.  *sigh*  We're doomed, aren't we?

Érase una vez, las hadas eran considerados peligrosos.  *suspiro*  Estamos condenados, ¿no?


If you ask me, feeding on the occasional human is better, ecosystem-wise, than hunting the Pacific Northwest's dwindling supply of carnivorous megafauna.

Si usted me pregunta, alimentándose de lo humano ocasional es mejor, con respecto a los ecosistemas, que la caza del suministro menguante de megafauna carnívoros en el Noroeste del Pacífico


Maybe I'll just stay home tonight and watch Let the Right One In.

A lo mejor me voy a quedar en casa esta noche y ver Déjame Entrar.


I think the best thing we can do is to publish a bestselling novel about unicorns and pray for short attention spans.

Creo que la mejor cosa que podemos hacer es publicar un bestseller sobre unicornios y orar por los lapsos de atención cortos.


Okay, yes, fine, I've read the Twilight series three times -- but I'm still very very uncomfortable with its underlying messages.

Bueno, sí, está bien, he leído la saga de Crepúsculo tres veces -- pero todavía estoy muy, muy incómodo con sus mensajes subyacentes.

I had a hilariously clear mental picture of the vampire who was saying all this while sulking over his blood-and-tonic. Which made the last line especially hilarious. (Also, see the first comic here.)
