Before I post tonight’s smile inducing entry from Karen, who shares her hiatus blues to rhyme in her own ingenius way (not to mention giving me a huge “Aw shucks” reaction), I wanted to make an official announcement. Welcome Karen officially to The Winchester Family Business writing team! Her poems have been so clever, heartwarming, touching, amusing, and downright awesome and I’m pleased to be able to post them. Hers is indeed a unique talent that we’re thrilled to showcase. Below is her bio, which will also be found in the “Who Are We?” section.
Karen is our resident poet, finding extraordinary ways to share her love for Supernatural through poems. She’s married with one child, whoâ€™s in her first year of University. She’s from Southern Ontario and has worked for a large company for the past 30 years. She found Supernatural the night they aired “Nightmare” and was immediately hooked. However due to shift work and a temperamental VCR, she was only able to catch a few episodes the first season and about half the second. She was finally able to find the first season on DVD and caught up before season twoâ€™s came out. By the start of season three she had a digital box that she could record from and hasn’t missed an episode since.
Welcome Karen! We’re thrilled to have officially be a part now of this crazy stuff we do.
The Supernatural Hiatus Blues
Well the hiatus just started and it’s a long one at that.
Eight weeks to survive, 56 days to combat.
But wait what is this! I could just shriek,
For Elle2 just informed they’ve added a week.
Nine whole weeks! I need a drink, where’s the booze?
Oh my! I’m coming down with the Hiatus Blues.
But Hey! I m strong, I can get thru without the brothers.
After all the first week is no different from the others.
I have my family and friends to help me pull thru.
There’s always my work keeping me busy too.
And I have my DVD’s, with lots of episodes to choose.
This will help me from the Hiatus Blues.
We’re in the second week and I’m starting to fade.
I can’t keep this up, this phony charade.
I guess I’m not as strong, with so many weeks still counting.
I’m starting to hyperventilate, my anxiety is mounting.
I need to calm down, I need to defuse.
Oh how I hate the Hiatus Blues.
Wait! I think I know how to end all this stress.
I’ll go to Alice’s Winchester Family Business.
For there’s article after article for the mind to expand.
Faellie’s Tactics and Strategies, Randal’s One Night Stand.
Along with Abandon all Hope’s many touching reviews,
This might just get me thru the Hiatus Blues.
There’s Jas’s Warrior of Lights and the Amulet’s demise.

Elle2 love for the Pilot and Alice’s Sera Gamble interview,
Her Holiday Leftovers and Things I’m Thankful for too.
Plus there’s been plenty of banter between Randal and Suze,
Who keeps cracking me up thru this Hiatus Blues.
We’re into week three and it’s taking its tow.
I’m working seventy-two hours and battling the snow.
I need to be saved from my current blight.
So I’m off to Alice’s wonderful website.

I just want to take a moment and thank you all

So to Elle, Sablegreen, Jasminka and Elle2,
Faellie, Randal and Alice, especially to you.
For giving me a place to belong and being my muse.
And helping me survive the Hiatus Blues.
