riding with reapers.  
This morning on the bus I may have had a brush with death. I noticed a girl sitting across from me. She uncannily resembled Daisy, one of the grim reapers from Dead Like Me, and you could tell she knew it. She styled her hair like Daisy's, dressed like her, and carried herself in a similar way. She made me nervous, because what if she was there to guide me across the threshold to death, you know? As the next stop came up, she just sat there calmly. As I stood, I thought: if she suddenly gathers her things to get off, she's clearly going to reap me. And she started gathering her things. I pressed close to the front and leapt off when the doors opened to make sure she didn't sneakily brush against me with her reaper touch, and then hurried away, looking over my shoulder to see if she followed. But she didn't. So maybe she was off to reap someone else. Creepy girl.

After that I kept looking upward for falling masonry and pianos.

I think I need another cut-tag for drinking issues, instead of "Intemperate thoughts." It seems a little on the negative side. Suggestions?

I know I had other stuff to say, but I can't remember what it is. It is a terrible loss for you all. No, really. *eye roll*

But are they entertaining reapers?
Dead Like Me -- I've been trying to find out more about that show. It doesn't play on TV here, and no one I know watches it. Is it worth buying on DVD?

Re: But are they entertaining reapers?
YES. It's truly one of the best shows on television.

Thank you -- I've ordered it (and won't hold a grudge if I end up disliking it, I promise ;-) Amazon pimps it on the Wonderfalls page, and though I usually ignore their recc's, I was intrigued.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's looking over her shoulder for Reapers now and again.

You should let us see this slightly paranoid and neurotic side of you more often!

*hugs*

You're in luck-- remember, the reapers look different to the rest of us than they do to each other/ looked in life.

So, safety.

Still weird, though. I would've been a bit freaked, too.

*misses that show hard*

How about "The Hard Stuff"?

Everything else I thought of was lame to the nth degree. CockTales (although that can be used for so many things!), Tipple Threat, License to Swill. Heeeeeee. I'm not helping, am I? :0)

I like "Hard Stuff"--that covers a lot. ;)

I was going to suggest "Distemperate Thoughts" but distemper is a feline disease, so people might take it as writings about your sickly cat. I like "the hard stuff" too.
As for the reaper - things could be getting meta out there. Did you happen to read Saussy's encounter with VK? Maybe it really was a reaper? I hope not cuz that's just a tap bit scary and I can actually see a fandom story coming out of it now - the very power of fandom makes the characters come alive and then those characters end up chasing all of us down. EEK!
