Wow.  Two years.  It doesn't seem that long ago, in some ways.  In others, it's a lifetime.

Ah well.

Current fandoms:
Supernatural (of course - the original and the best!)
Teen Wolf (currently just started watching Season 2)
Sherlock
NCIS
Bones
Grimm
And sort-of-Arrow, in that The Other Half is watching it and I'm sort of being dragged along for the ride.

Oh, and I have tickets to Asylum in May, which I may be slightly excited about.  Just a bit.

My local paper published this story about a mother who left her children home alone

Basically, these kids were 14 and 12, and she left them with 20 pounds (about $40) while she went off to London for a few days.  They spent the money on "alcohol and chocolate".  Now, I read this with total disgust.  I mean, yes, you can leave them home for a DAY or an EVENING, but this woman totally fails as a mother. 

...aaaand then I wondered how on earth I could justify John leaving SamnDean alone at a much younger age, with little or no money and food.  Because, you know, I don't AGREE with what he did, but I can kind of accept it knowing what he was doing, and of course with the knowledge that, hey, both boys survived and grew up totally dysfunctional just fine. I mean, put this woman in front of me and I'd happily throw stones.  But I can, if not exactly condone, at least understand why John did it. 

Which kind of makes my brain hurt.

ETA: If anyone knows how to get a British pound sign out of my US keyboard I will bribe Dean to smother you in whipped cream and lick it off be very grateful.

Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment today.

I know I'm late to the party, news takes a while to get to this side of the Atlantic, and we have to, you know, wake up and stuff.  But it kinda feels like someone ripped the rug right out from under me.  He wasn't a friend and he wasn't family, and I only knew him through the media, but - damn.  He was young, he had a wife and daughter, and he had his whole life ahead of him, and it was going to be GOOD.  And they're saying it was drug-related, which is such a fucking waste of a life.

I don't know if I want to curl up on the sofa and cry, or start to throw things because I'm so pissed.  I kinda feel like doing both, so I just called a friend and we're going out for a long hike this afternoon, on this miserable, cold and rainy day.  My friends rock.  And maybe when I get back I can think about this again, because right now I just feel like my stomach got twisted up, somehow, and I need to start breathing again.
