Drive-By Posting—Spam, Supernatural, and Jason Manns

I recently read in a blogging advice article to turn off the word verification, because spam isn't really that big of a problem, and it deters commenters. I didn't have a problem with spam, so I turned it off.

And got bombarded with spam. YIKES, have I gotten a lot of spam. Luckily, Blogger has a fantastic spam filter. Every spam comment has ended up there, and no real comments have. So I'll leave it for now, though I don't think it matters much. Comments are rarer and rarer anywhere you go.

Supernatural gets 23 episodes this season! That makes me extraordinarily happy. I am so ready for the show to be back. Still way over a month to go, which makes me pout. But the other TV I watch is all finale-ing, so I'll have some time to watch seasons 5 and 6 again before season 7 starts.

In case you missed it, I recently admitted on Twitter and Facebook that I have become a Sam girl. I've always considered myself almost equally in love with Dean and Sam, but slightly tilted toward Dean. But in the last couple of seasons, as Sam's character has done so much, and Jared Padalecki has become close to Jensen Ackles' equal, I've slowly slid over to the other side.

Please don't throw things at me.

Jason Manns is finally coming back to the east coast this weekend, with a show at The Bitter End in New York on Tuesday night. I am so there! As much as I've missed Supernatural, I've missed Jason. I hope he sings for hours. (He won't. He's third in the lineup, and that usually means he gets shafted and can only sing a few songs. Still totally worth the 8-hour round trip and the three hours of sleep I'll get before working Wednesday.)

That's all I have time for today. I am working hard on Heavy Metal, book 2 of Goddesses Rising, and eager to get back to it. Please post something random in the comments, to enhance the fun of the drive-by posting concept. :)

Can't I have both Sam and Dean, please? I'm a little behind on my Supernatural watching - I must remedy that. Have fun at the concert and happy writing!

ABSOLUTELY, you can have both! I mean, it's all fantasy anyway, might as well get exactly what you want. :)

Thanks, Robin!

I just started watching Supernatural with my daughter (she has the whole series on DVD). I guess I don't have a favorite, yet. Still working on season 1. But I am enjoying the series.

I give you to season 3 to find yourself leaning one way or another, Stacy. Then by season 5, you'll probably be going the other way. LOL

Ava Quinn said...

comment - of the drive-by variety.

Okay, I can't leave it at that.

Have a great time at the concert!

Glad we got to talk at lunch!

LOL! Thanks, Ava, and ditto!
