As we all know, "Supernatural" is awesome and we think about it all the time anyway. I mean, who doesn't think of Dean when they eat pie or Castiel when they see a trench coat or Bobby when they see a trucker's cap or Sam when someone tries to puppy-dog eye them? There's a strong association between the show and things on the show that reminds us of, well, the show! But there are other normal, everyday things that also make me think of "Supernatural" because my mind just works that way. So without further ado, here are my Top Ten Random Things That Remind Me of "Supernatural."
Bonus: The Winchester Mystery House
This house, located in San Jose, California, was built by Sarah Winchester and was under construction for 38 straight years. It's reported to be haunted by the ghosts of the workers who died during its construction. And yes, this house was part of the inspiration for the Winchester surname on the show. The reason it is an honorable mention is that my mom lives near San Jose, so when I go to visit her, we see Winchester things all over the place, from the house to a road, etc. And it always reminds us of the show, as she is a big fan, as well.
10. Gabriel Bros.
And what, pray tell, is Gabriel Brothers? Well, it's a store where you can get designer clothes for deep discounts, if you look really, really hard. It's like a treasure hunt, so it's really fun. But it's a local Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio store chain, so you might not have one near you. And I think the reason it reminds me of the show is pretty obvious. But there aren't many around me, so I don't see it a lot, hence its placement at number 10.
9. Michaels Craft Store
Michaels is a craft store, which strikes me as an hilarious thing for an archangel to own. Bored in heaven? Do a craft! Maybe he just really likes making silk floral arrangements...
8. Wing Earrings
I may or may not have gotten these two days after the season 6 finale and I was still reeling about Cass going godlike and eating a bunch of souls. I may or may not feel better when I wear them because they remind me of the good-old, pre-god Cass. I regret nothing.
7. Alice Street
This street is like two streets away from my house, and I drive on it practically every day. It reminds me of our fearless leader, and is appropriately a one-way street. She's such a dictator, that Alice.
6. Angel Statues
I live nearby two cemeteries, which is bad if the zombie apocalypse ever happens, but it's good for walking. I love walking in cemeteries because they're peaceful, quiet, and I always feel like when I walk by a tombstone, I'm visiting that person if only for a little while. And when I pass by this angel statue, of course I think of Cass, especially now, because it's broken and looks rather sad. And because I have a bit of a Thing for Cass, if that isn't obvious by now. Also, I think the reason angel stuff reminds me of the show and not other things is because I'm not religious, though I was raised in a house with religion. It just didn't take with me. So my biggest attachment to angels is "Supernatural."
5. Impala Cars
These things are ALL OVER the place around me. People love Impalas. But of course, they pale in comparison to the real thing. It's like a house cat compared to a tiger. Just look at that lame car. I'm sorry to any of our readers that owns an Impala because they may be lovely cars to drive or whatever. But, yeah, now they just make me laugh.
4. Alistar License Plate
Here's the deal with this license plate: I don't know if it's supposed to be "Allstar" or what, but all I see is Alastair, and it creeps me right out. This car is never in the parking lot when I get to work, but when I leave, it's parked next to my car every day. They're stalking me. Creepy demon stalking! Not good!
3. "Supernatural" Poster
As some of you may know, I work for the company that does the closed captioning for "Supernatural," which, yes, is awesome. Part of our decorating scheme in the office is to put up posters on the wall for some of the shows we caption, and one of the posters is a season 1 poster. So I walk by that poster every day and sigh because it's a pretty good one, I think.
2. Sam's Club
This is Walmart's wholesale club where you can buy like 87 of anything in giant packages, from diapers to snacks to TVs to watermelons. You name it, they have it in large supply. Which seems rather appropriate for a Sasquatch of a character, don't you think? If only they sold bulk stuffed moose...
1. Dean's Milk
Dean's Foods is, rather obviously, a food distribution company. They have a number of brands, but the one that I come across is Dean's Milk. Their dairy is a Midwestern thing, and it just always makes me laugh to see Dean's Milk in the store. I really can't tell you why, but it does. Of all the beverages I associate with Dean, milk is certainly not one of them. Goes well with pie, though!!!!
So there you have it. What random things do you associate with the show?
