His birthday fell on U.S. Thanksgiving this year.

And he was Canadian.

So his birthday would be being marked south of the border.

Rita Hayworth was his favourite actress.

Although he had daydreamed about her, she had never appeared in any of his dreams as he slept.

Possibly the new year of his life was off to a good start as he had dreamed about her in the early morning.

In his dream, he had been a detective.

And he had been called in with his cousins to solve a mystery of a rock music band who had mysteriously disappeared on his uncle’s farm.

And Rita Hayworth was his assistant who helped him solve the mystery.

Or at least he assumed he had solved the mystery.

He woke up just as he dreamed he was kissing her.

But still that was off to a good start.

Usually he always woke up before he got the chance to kiss any beautiful woman who appeared in his dream.

He walked outside to shovel the snow.

As a great deal of snow had fallen over night.

As he walked down the steps of the house where he rented a basement room, he noticed rabbit tracks in the snow around the front yard.

That was always a good sign for a new year of life.

As rabbits always made him think of his father who had been born in the Chinese zodiac year of the Rabbit.

. . .

Xi Jinping the paramount leader of China wondered who this mysterious Mr. Inn Lu was in Sydney Australia who was hiding a PRC (People’s Republic of China) Ministry of State Security intelligence defector named Wang in one of his Sydney safe houses.

Wang defected with the help of another Ministry of State Security operative the Vietnamese vampiress Ho Babylon Minh (granddaughter of Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh).

Ho herself then went and defected to Taiwan.

Xi tried to get ahold of another Ministry of State Security official the vampiress Mei-ling Manchu to try to track down both defectors.

But she didn’t seem to be answering her Huawei smart phone.

. . .

“Well, Mei-ling,” British MP Renfield R. Renfield asked his vampiress friend from Beijing, “What have you come to tell me?”.

“Well,” Mei-ling licked her vampiress incisors with her tongue, “I’ve decided to overthrow China’s megalomaniac totalitarian despot Xi Jinping and make myself Empress of China.”

“An excellent idea,” Renfield sipped his brandy, “what can I do to help?”.

. . .

Inside a time tunnel in a mountain hideout, the Aztec vampire princess Qonzilqointec was about to set out with her companion:

“Well, Dracul,” she asked Van Helsing, “are you ready to begin our mission?”.

    Happy birthday ? The Chinese zodiac is accurate in regards to traits in many ways to most people, or so it seems to me. Once, my mom was in a coma. I dreamt of a white (life) rooster (her assigned animal) & knew she was going to snap back. Maybe it was coincidence or subconscious hopefulness, who knows.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you very much, Dawn. πŸ™‚

      Yes, I’ve noticed that the Chinese zodiac seems to be more accurate when it comes to personality traits than the ancient Babylonian zodiac (on which our modern western zodiac is based).

      My dad certainly had a lot of the traits of the Rabbit in the Chinese zodiac.

      • Dawn Renee said,

        You’re welcome. As an odd side note, I researched 5 deceased loved ones about a year ago… 3 of the 5 departed in a year attributed to the same animal as the year of their births, not always of the same element, but animal, nonetheless. My guess, your Dad was metal or Earth. in either case, had an appreciable quality of perseverance.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I googled 2010.

        It was apparently a year of the Tiger.

        Which was interesting because previous years of the Tiger were generally among the worst years of my life as well.

      • Dawn Renee said,

        That is interesting. It makes me wonder where the keys lies in truly grasping the stuff – are predictions possible – does fate rule or is will the driving force. I have read that people surround themselves with the color of red during their zodiac year to ward off bad luck & evil spirits. Truth in it or not, maybe we should redden things up at times there appears a negative pattern. I hope the Tiger year cycle does an about face next time around.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I hope so too, Dawn.

        Red is one of my favourite colours so maybe I should surround myself with more red.

    Had I known it was your birthday, Christopher, I would have raised my glass in a Thanksgiving toast to you. Glad all the signs were good for you as you began your next revolution around the sun.

    β€œare you ready to begin our mission?”… hmm, are you Mr. Van Helsing? 😏

  4. David Redpath said,

    So, Babylon Ho was right all along
    about Mei-ling Manchu. And here
    was me, thinking it was just a case
    of professional transhuman jealousy.

  5. David Redpath said,

    And a happy floppy eared birthday🐰
