If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time you know that when I'm not on the road I work from home. There are definite perks to not having to go to an office: working in your undies, showering...if you feel so inclined, watching back to back episodes of Supernatural every morning while you work on reports.
I must admit, I never really gave Supernatural too much thought. Most of the shows on the CW don't appeal to me, so I just chalked this one up to being like the rest and never watched. Frankly, I can't remember what made me actually take the time to really tune in. I'm going to guess that I happened upon it while Dean was making one of his hilarious and smart aleck comments, which immediately hooked me. But I can't be certain. Whatever the case, the minute I realized that I enjoyed the show I knew I had to watch ALL episodes from the beginning. You can't just jump in in the middle and try to figure out why Sam is locked in cage "for his own good." No ma'am. You must start from episode one, fire in the house, mom on the ceiling.
So that's what I did. Thanks to Netflix, I was able to dive in from the start. And thanks to Netflix, I am hopelessly in t.v. love with Dean Winchester.
I like MEN. Manly, sweaty, rough and tumble men. Keep your hipsters, your artists, your skinny jeans wearing guys. I want someone who I know I can't beat up or push around. There is something terribly sexy about a man's man. (Side note: Men who carry guns for work or just because they have a permit and can legally do so, give me the vapors.) Dean Winchester is the epitome of the type of guy I like. Granted, he fights the supernatural for a living and thus has no "legitimate" income to speak of, but so what? There's just something about that smart-ass, punch throwing, rock song singing, classic car driving man that captures my full attention in every episode.
Oh, and it didn't hurt that this was the love his life
I'm just sayin'.
I'm pretty head strong. I can hold my own in most situations. So I have to know that the man I'm with can do the same. I feel like Dean Winchester would go to Hell and back for me. (He did for Sam.) And that's the kind of man I want. I'm ride or die but I need to be with someone who makes the trip worth it.
So while I know the Dean Winchester is just a character (And Jensen Ackles, the actor who plays him, is married...figures) I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled and fingers crossed for a real life Dean Winchester to come my way. I mean, seriously, how can you NOT love Dean?
He's just such a BAMF!!
This is worth ALL 8 minutes.
And this will only be funny if you're a fan of the show. Apologies to the non-Supernatural fans.
