Ahhhhhhh…. now, here’s a thing… just learned today that we have a new classification of Vampires gracing our culture… that’s right, a whole new sub-sub-cultural facet…

I’m speaking, of course, of Eclectic Vampires

Yeah, whoo boy… new one just outta the language grinder… gotta do a bit of research this end but I think I should really point out, from English Language 101… I trust we all remember that? The word “Eclectic” is an adjective, HOW DID IT SUDDENLY BECOME A NOUN? And… just what the pink-faery flapping frig is an “ECLECTIC” anyway…

I’ll tell ya…
eclectic adjective

UK  /ekˈlek.tɪk/ US  /ekˈlek.tɪk/ formal

[Ref: Cambridge English Dictionary  https://dictionary.cambridge.org]

Sooooo… now we’ve given ourselves permission not only to make up words “on the spur” and “as required” to fudge over something haven’t really thought out and we’ve developed a new flavour, like tutti-frutti, or bubblegum, or orange sorbet???
