... fully loaded, safety off...


Last week I called a local gov agency to make an inquiry, and the phone rang and rang, and then someone picked up and said, "Hello, thank you for calling the deptartment of xyz, this is River, how can I help you?"

HUH? River?!? I lost my train of thought of course. "I, um, I, um, I..." I mentioned the person who had called me because I felt like I was staring.

Me: "I'm returning Andrea's call...."
River: "One sec.... she's busy right now, I can help you..." :O
Me: "Well, RIVER, I was wondering about..."

No - I did not ask about The Rim, or Mal, or Jayne... I figure she gets enough of that. Main thing is, I know her number.

Nope never happened to me but that's a great story. I would've asked.

Might be named after River Phoenix.

I once waited on a girl, she said her name was something like Winter. I asked if her sisters were named Summer and Autumn. She dropped her jaw and stared at me, then said 2 of them were. I said "What, another is named Spring or April?" She asked how did I know - April was correct. I didn't really think it was brain surgery.

I was once following a minivan through a construction detour, like a year or two ago. One of the stops I noticed that among the vast supply of window stickers was Wash is My Copilot. I looked closer and most of them were Firefly/Serenity based stickers.

At a Comic Con a couple of years ago, there were two families with little girls in line ahead of me. The girls were both named River. One was named after River Tam and the other after River Song.

No power in the 'verse can stop me!
