No Edward Cullen here.

From my vampire-loving, Twilight-obsessed 10th grader:

"You live in Washington?"
"Yes.  Last year."
"You go to Forks?"
"What?" (Am I forgetting a suburb?  Fort something?  Those words do sound similar.)
"Ohhhh.  I lived in the capital, Washington, D.C.  That's where the President lives.  Washington state is on the other side of the United States, near California."
(Supreme disappointment.)  "Oh."
"There aren't any vampires in Washington, D.C.  But we do have monster politicians!"

Sorry to let you down.  Again.  Two weeks ago I refused to show Twilight as an addition to our Dracula unit.
