Then we got creative. We played slayer - a cross between Jedis and Mommy's trash TV watching ways.
Here's how it works:
1. Someone gets to play Slayer. In this case, that would be me because I am the girl. The watcher rules are very clear on the gender of the slayer. If Lexi is around she can play Faith to my Buffy (minus the evil stage), but I will not go quietly into the night as some lousy vamp.
2. Identify vampires. At the end of season 7, Spike provides us with a rough sketch, to help us root out evil, or at least Angel. (They have a troubled past.)
Don't know Spike? Look here he is, in posable doll form. (No, that is not Billy Idol. Legend has it that he took his look from William the Bloody. Aka Spike. Am I going too fast here? Am I high on sudafed?)
3. Chase potential vampires around, tickling and dusting them. With a unseen stake, of course. Until the little vamp giggles or coughs up a lung.
4. Provide a means for tortured vampires to regain their souls, or as Zack says, "Become good again."
(I tried to find a Angelus picture for you, but I get the feeling David Boreanaz just wants to look pretty, not undead.)
5. Wash your hands and return to the 'real world'. Whatever that is.
6. Hide your head in shame and threaten the first person that calls you 'Andrew' upon reading this post.
