Oh god I don't know WHAT to do!!!

I went ahead a bid all over the place for SPN cards I didn't have.  Only went for the very low priced cards and figured if I don't get outbid, then terrific I got a low-cost card.  And if I did get outbid--also terrific cuz that's money I don't have to spend.

And, no surprise to me, I have been pretty consistently outbid as expected. 

Except for two of the cards I kinda sorta wanted I'm now outbid on.  And I KNOW the right thing to do is just LET IT GO.  Because I really need to concentrate on airfare for LA Con 2009, not on these frickin' cards!

But dammit!

*I will not re-bid.  I will not re-bid.  I will not rebid."

Hey!  An SAA reference--AHBL part 1.  When Jake walks in the school house and finds the chalk board all written over "I will not kill".

(Yes M, I do plan on replying to the SAA post you reminded me about this morning.  Just got off work and am catching up.)

Okay so I just bought another SPN card. AND I'm bidding on a gizzion others. (I don't expect to win most of them so I'm telling myself that I won't really be spending that money.) 

See new card below and then read on for the sad, sad story of my slide into addiction.

Hi, I'm growyourwings and I've been addicted to SPN since October 2006.

Previously I posted about my upcoming 2-year LJ-versary (July 23). I found SPN through LJ. I can even remember a post that triggered me to watch the show. It occurred to me that I might be able to find that post. So I went looking through my early LJ entries.

On October 31, 2006 I posted an iTunes meme listing songs on my iPod. The first song listed on this meme was Don't Fear the Reaper. I know that I didn't have that song prior to watching Supernatural.

So sometime between 7/23/06 and 10/30/06 I had started watching Supernatural.

However, I didn't make a post reference to Supernatural until November 11th with this post where I talked about Emily visiting from college and us watching several Heroes episodes together (oh the days when I still really *loved* Heroes.) In that post I mentioned:

"I'm downloading last night's BSG and the last SPN ep right now."

That's it girls. Just an "Oh BTW I'm DL'ing an SPN episode." Most of my posts (not that many in total) from July through November were either meme's, RL comments, or BSG-related. I was very addicted to BSG at the time (still am.)

Then I don't mention SPN again until December 12th when I post this. The photo ALONE with no text, but with the "music I'm listening to" saying I was listening to "Carry On My Wayward Son"

Again all my fandom-based posts were about BSG or Heroes.
On December 12th (OMG, TWO days in a ROW posting about SPN! Is the pattern starting?!) I posted this. My first post-rec of an SPN FanVid (for Dragonfly's Carol of the Supernatural.)

And then some more SPN Fanvid recs posted on December 22th.

I noticed that some of my posts were about either/both Emily or Bob being out of town (Bob was traveling a lot for work right then--for days on end) or about a long-term bout of bronchitis I was going through that was forcing me to stay home from work. So OBVIOUSLY, my addiction is the fault of family-deprivation (Emily & Bob) and work-deprivation due to illness.

(That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

Finally on December 27, 2006 I mention getting my sister-in-law hooked on SPN (Hi [ profile] fickleone   !) And about me starting to go fangirly and viral about infecting others with SPN (and also Heroes, but alas that show just didn't stand up for me over time.)

And from then on it's all over folks. I'd be hard-pressed to find an entry that doesn't mention SPN.

But that gave me some date parameters (yes, I'm a computer geek; I talk in parameters) to search [personal profile] zelda_zee   's LJ to see if I could find the post that started it all for me.

Yes Zelda infected me. She doesn't know me (other than from a few comments years ago that I posted about a couple of her LOST fics--which BTW she is the primo author of one of the BEST EVAR Jack/Sawyer/Sayid series in the history of the universe--but that's another story.  And I friended her LJ to follow not only her fic writing but also her love of Sayid--which I shared -- and still share.  At that time there was not enough Sayid appreciation going on.  See my first ever post as a sample of my Sayid love--weak though my example may be.)

So here's the paragraph that started it all for me. It's from Zelda's post of October 6, 2006 :

"I watched Jensen Ackles lips last night. There appears to be some sort of show built around them. Huh."

It was tacked onto a post about LOST (naturally). Almost as an afterthought. I had ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHO JENSEN ACKLES was.

I really, really, really didn't.

No clue.

But the statement made me laugh and tweeked my interest. I may even have googled him to see what he looked like. I don't remember being bowled over by him.


So some time in the following few days or weeks I Netflix'd the first disk of S1. And the rest, as they say, is history. (As my family shakes their heads in sorrow for the downfall of their beloved wife and mother.)

Just watching this.  Never heard of Ring of Endless Light.  IMDB says it was done in August 2002.  I've never been a huge fan of young Jared.  I feel pervy enough sometimes with my obsession with these boys.

I haven't watched of this yet so I don't know anything really about Jared's character in this.  But he's definitely cute and adorable as always. Perhaps his character will turn out to be a jerk.  But still---look at this.

Cute, huh?

I'm getting quite the collection of clips and videos around both the boys.  I've started files on Appearances (cons, interviews, etc.) and Actors (videos etc from other works of the SPN actors).  My Jared file now goes from 2002 (with the additional of Ring of Endless Light) to present day.  I've got either Jared clips or whole files of RoEL, Young MacGyver, Flight of the Phoenix, Cry Wolf, House of Wax (*shudders about the wax thing*), the TV Guide Sexiest Star.

For Jensen I have a bunch of files I still haven't gone all the way through of clips from Days of Our Lives, a movie(?) called Sweet Valley High, that interview taken I think during DOOL where young Jensen is riding the horse, S4 of Smallville, a clip of the Smallville cast during a trip to Puerto Rico, the teaser clips from Ten Inch Hero (man I SO want to see that movie--I really hope they show it in Chicago), clips of Jensen on Good News Weekly(?) in Australia, and Jensen's various interviews from his March 2008 Aussie trip.

Okay--I'm definitely obsessed.

I *really* cannot do this.  But man the Con-addiction REALLY is strong.  Now I want to go the the next EyeCon in September.  I think hubby would REALLY not be over-joyed however, since we've been trying to figure out some kind of family vacation and there really is only so much time and money for vacations.

Of course I could pitch it as a Disney World family vacation.  We've done that before however and it's VERY expensive.  And B really wants to go to Hawaii.  I really do need to put family before SPN Cons (*nods head for emphasis for myself*)
growyourwings: (Default)
Ok, so I said I wasn't going and even felt good about that decision.  Then hubby called me on his way home from work and said I should go.  He wasn't interested himself but was supportive of me going.  Because RL (read work) had been going so blah the last few days I decided, "what the heck!"  And within 30 minutes had purchased my gold ticket and photops for Dallas. 

Now I just need to see if I can get on the same flight as [profile] fickleone.

I will book another hotel room to ensure a place to stay as well.

(I cannot believe I just did this.)

Sent a rambling email to [profile] fickleone yesterday morning.  She and I have often wondered how two respectable, normal(?) mature women can get so obsessively addicted to a little-known TV show.  I was in an SPN-happy mood yesterday and did a stream-of-consciousness ramble about it..

I'm sure there's more.

Then dragonfly who did one of my all-time favorite SPN vids, Carol of the Supernatural, has done another great one called Bellum Supernatural.  Check it out!

I just finished watch a bunch of clips of Jared playing Dean Forrester on Gilmore Girls. I now know why everyone seems to love Jared from this show and how they love the character of Dean Forrester. Kinda the same why I learned way everyone was so in-love with JDM playing Denny on Grey's Anatomy. Both Denny & Dean are the kind of characters that are just so likable and lovable. Jared is so great (and gorgeous--despite the young age) in GG. I now understand.

For some very bizarre reason I wasn't tracking the Sam_Dean community.  *No* idea why.  Doesn't make sense.  If I'd been asked I would have said of course I was.

So I'm sure this list is well known to everyone but me (and my other newbie SPN friend.)  But man, my friend and I just went nuts this afternoon mining this post for goodies.  She referred to it as christmas.

Master SPN media list
