I've been MIA for far too long.

I meant to do this last week.  Damn you, Plurk!!!!!!  As seen on ames1010's LJ.  

Random association meme. 
Ask me to associate you with five things. When I do this, post this meme and an explanation of your interest in those five things in your journal.

Nobody has to do this, I just thought it was a fun one!

These are the things ames1010  associates me with:

1. Red Wings
2. Winchester Boys
3. Chicago Con
4. Steve, of course
5. Fellow Michigander

1.  Red Wings: I love hockey.  The speed, the agility, the puck-handling, the checking.  *swoon*  It's next to impossible to be bored at a hockey game.  But, in case you couldn't tell, I'm a die-hard Wings fan.  I'll root for other teams, as long as they aren't playing the Winged Wheel at that very moment.

It all started several years ago.  My RLBFF and I used to work together.  On Friday nights, we'd hang out, having a few beers and waiting for his then-fiancee to get off of work and join us.  Sometimes we'd watch a movie, but if the hockey game was on?  The channel never got changed.   This was circa 1994...the beginning of the Russian Five and the Wings' Road to Glory.  I've never looked back.  I love going to the games as much as I love watching them on my tv.  I'd love to be a "groupie" and see the Wings play in other cities, but so far, I've only seen them play in Chicago.

I love my boys.  Even when they get traded to other teams or retire, I try to keep up with what my favorite players are doing.

2.  DA BOYS!!!!  I remember reading about Supernatural in EW before the show premiered.  Being an X-Phile, SPN's premise was right up my alley.  I recognized Jared from Gilmore Girls, but had never heard of Jensen.  I remember thinking "huh...this kid's kinda cute".  Yeah, little did I know that one episode in, I'd be full-on in love with that "cute kid".

Yes...Jared and Jensen are both extremely hot, but they are both extremely talented as well.  That, my friends, makes them even more attractive to me.  Extra bonus?  They come across as really, really nice guys in RL.  *hearts them to the max*

3.  Chicago Con: Where I first got to meet ames1010 in RL!!!!!!!!!  Much fun was had, especially during Steve's concert.  I'll never be able to listen to Pinata Novia again without giggling, Amy!  *hugs*

4.  STEEEEEEEEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  *cough*  Sorry, my squee sometimes gets out of control when it comes to Mr. Carlson.

Before the 2007 Chicago Con, I had never heard of Steve.  When I saw he had been signed as a guest, I visited his site and listened to some of his music.  It wasn't until the concert that I fully appreciated the man's talent.  I fell and fell hard.  After the concert, I walked out to the merchandise table and bought every cd of his that they had (4).  Those cds got played, I swear to Castiel, for a year straight.  That voice!  *sigh*

My only regret about the 2007 Con was that I hadn't purchased the photo op with Steve.  I know, I know!  But, I had a good excuse! The evening they were doing the photo ops, I was watching my beloved Wings play the Blackhawks at the United Center!!!!!

Anyway, Steve's voice completely seduced me.  Plus, you know, he's HOT!  I couldn't stop talking about the man or his music. Ask any of my flist.  I'm sure they were ready to muzzle me and/or cut off my fingers so that maybe I'd STFU about Steve. 

I'm also waaaaaay excited for it to be May because that's when the SKH benefit concert is.  So not only will I get to see Steve, but psychoactivtoad is coming to visit and we'll get to hang with Amy and some of the other girls again!  \o/

5.  Ahhhh, Michigan!  The mitten state.  The Great Lakes state.  Birthplace of Kid Rock, Sam Raimi, Kristin Bell, McG, Bob Seger, Bruce Campbell, Alice Cooper, and Brian Rafalski.  The economy may be in the toilet right now, winter may be making me crazy, and the Lions will suck for the next gajillion years, but I really do enjoy living here.  After all, we are the home of the 2008 Stanley Cup Champions!!!!!  GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember, Amy, I'm only like two hours away.  I can come your way for Sam-tinis or you can come my way and maybe we can take in a Wings' game.

Tee-hee; okay, I've responded. At predictably great length ... *snicker*

I'm really glad you did this, by the way. I thought I was having a reasonably good day at work until right up to the last half hour, when it all went sour. I was pissed and angry and unhappy, and then I came home and thought about Supernatural and fanfic and road trips and SU, and I got happy. So thank you, my sweet!

And I've love to take a road trip with you, someday, I think ... *grin*

Yay!!!! I'd love to take a road trip with you as well! I can behave myself when I have to! *grin*

Okie dokie...going to read yours now!

Yeah, plurk has kind of taken over, hasn't it.

I'll bite, and I'll remember to play back.

Umm, I'm feeling really blonde tonight, but aren't the Red Wings in Detroit? But you've only seen them play in Chicago?

I meant that aside from here in Detroit, I've only seen them play in Chicago. I'd like to follow them on the road to other cities.

1. Supernatural (of course)
2. Photography
3. Fanfic *evil grin*
4. Boardgames
5. Sammy Winchester

Ok. That makes sense. For some reason when we first met online I had the impression that you lived in Chicago. And all the times you talked about the Red Wings I was thinking they were the Chicago team (which, if I had concentrated for .5 seconds I would realize wasn't true). Then I finally corrected myself and put you in Detroit, but when you made that comment I thought maybe I was confused again :)

Yeah, I can be pretty confusing. *grin*

Got a little carried away.

1. Someone associates you with hockey? How strange! *ducks* *runs away laughing maniacally*

. . .

*from a safe distance*

2. Who couldn't love the boys? Jared's the posterchild for "adorkable".

3. Where Jared put his arm around me and I touched Jensen. And I think some other people were there, too. ;)

4. Dude, seeing Steve from the first row was so frikkin' awesome. Thank you for getting those tickets for us.

5. Toady's coming up? (OK, I think that's under 4, but whatever.) Now I have Michigan envy.

Poor Plurk! It gets all the blame. *shakes head sadly*

1. IKR? That's just crazy!
2. Yes, yes he is!!!!!! They both are. *smishes them*
3. *sigh*
4. You are so welcome! I still cannot believe we scored FRONT ROW!!!!!!!!!! *flails*

Yep, Toady's coming up! You need to come for a visit soon!

Plurk is shameless in it's attention-whoring!

I'd love to come out for a visit. And hit Met up, since I'd be in the area, but I don't know when! *pouts*

Okay, so I'm game for some associations.

Like Mary said, isn't it just the very best, best news about SN. OMG - I'm still over the moon about it!!! :) :) :)

The Happy dancing continues.

Yay!! A Rap, my Rap posting! :-) I know this will bite me in the pa-tushka, but you haven't posted in ages! (atleast not that LJ has advised me) So ... Yay #1.

Hmm ... a hockey fan? Seriously? :-D I think we should show off your jacket! Did I tell you about showing the pics to my friend and she saw your jacket and said .. "Whoa! Serious fan alert!" I just grinned and said "YEP!!"

I'm sensing a Supernatural theme which is what is sooo awesome to me because it links the show with the convention and the fun that was had ... then links to Stevie and ... wait! Rap! Is that Steve over there?? *points* *grins*

*hugs* Chicago was just too much fun!

As for playing ... I'll bite ... and, I'll even post it!

I'm not sure you can associate me with much other than SN, but I'm curious. So let's see what you can do. And I promise I'll remember to post ... as soon as I can get away from Plurk.

Hi Rap,

Alrighty then, I'll be posting on my site, filler ins to your replies. I love them, btw. *giggles*

Now, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to respond and insert five things I associate with you, but here is my list:

-Steve Carlson (I love your dedication to him and the sheer joy you show when you're in his presence - it's really wonderful).

-Supernatural - discussions of the show, attending the Cons, hanging out - all great memories.

-Hockey - your enthusiasm for the game and all that it involves. I love your passion of it, which I share (for my Habs). :)

-The guys - doesn't get any better.

-Your honesty, clarity and kindness. I'll always remember when you and Amy helped me in Chicago (November 2007) at Sephora's and Bath and Body Works, with the shimmering carpet and fun times. :)
