I have an idea for a TV show! A drama about a wisecracking ER night nurse who is also a vampire! She takes extra vials of blood to save and drink later, and she preys on the drug-seekers and methadonians because she is addicted to the narcotics in their blood! She can get an IV in ANYONE simply by smelling for a vein.
Sort of a cross between Nurse Jackie and True Blood, no?
We'll call it "Nurseferatu!"
(ok, let's give credit where it's due: I was drawing blood from an elderly gent, and when he commented about the number of tubes I was taking. I made my standard comment that I'm really a vampire, and that I always drink the extra blood so it doesn't go to waste. His friend at the bedside looked at me and said, "oh! You're Nurseferatu!" So, no, I didn't come up with it--but it was too funny to not post!)
