Dear Madame Slayer,
I've been a faithful reader now for, well, since the beginning, and lately I've noticed that there are several of us out here. I think we deserve a name. Geese come in a gaggle, wolves in a pack, cows in a herd. What would you call us, your PVS devotees?
Living in the Light, With the Nightlight on Just in Case
Well this is a poser!
I remember one time I needed a name for a group of vampires, so I hollered down to my (then 7 year old) daughter, "Hey Maddie -- what would you call a bunch of vampires all together, like a herd of sheep?" Her answer? "A bleed of vampires."
I sure liked that.
That genius Joss Whedon (creator of TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer) dubbed the Slayers-in-training on that show "Potentials," and it's hard for me to imagine a more perfect name for them than that...
In the case of people who read (or should I say "check," since I so rarely post anything new!) this blog, the best word I can think of for them is "Allies," since they provide such great support and friendship to me.
