This is a timely prompt - I need some sunshine on a rainy day right now.

The video is so 90s! I have no memory of this singer at all, but I often have the chorus in my head when it rains on a summer day.

I had another set of questions I was going to do but I think I'd done that one before, and this one was new to me so... gratuitous boring info about me. Snaffled from jdl71

So in the olden days, I used to make my own birthday and Christmas cards for people. When I was eighteen I was into Indian miniatures and Japanese painting, even though I was rubbish at immitating either! LOL

I remember watching these a long time ago - it's really interesting watching again and picking out all the differences in the script from the Pilot, especially in the representation of the Winchester's 'effed up' family... as well as how adorably young Jared was... aw...

Requiring some cudgelling of the old brain cells...so much so I started this post yesterday, then forgot to come back and finish it!! For milly_gal
What was your most memorable fandom moment in the last ten years?

For those of you who don't know me very well, I need to mention that I've always had a dodgy memory, but that in recent years it's got worse. So whatever I pick here, there were probably 100 better and more fun moments that I should be choosing instead but that have been swallowed by one of the holes in my Swiss cheese brain.

Moments I can recall (right now) would include

  • meeting a rather lovely German lady called Purple Nurple (aka Christine aka technicolour66 on tumblr/twitter aka loveinadooway) in a queue in Rome and becoming friends immediately - one of many lasting queue and convention friendships I've made to date, and one of the reasons fandom is so frigging ace. Friendships including dizzojay, katwoman76, sigrundora, xlittleangx and adrenalineshots to name but a few...

  • meeting Jared and Jensen for the first time in Chicago - that moment of holy FUCK! they are exceedingly, overwhelmingly attractive in person but even though I'm shaking and stuttering from nervousness, I'm still going to follow through with my plan to feel Jared's pecs and give Jensen's waist a quick squeeze to see if he's still got love handles. (He hadn't, he was deliciously trim)

  • last year's Christmas get together in London and finding I'd lucked out in the Secret Santa by landing two trays of the most tasty SPN themed gingerbread baked by our charming theymp. Looking forward to next Saturday, chaps and chappesses!

  • meeting up with my oldest SPN friends for the first time in Chicago. I'd got to know them on Facebook, and although the AMerican con idea was to see the Js, the main reason was to share the experience with these lovely peeps. So I attended the convention with two of them, and then we three met up with two more on the Monday and Tuesday after the convention

And that last event is the lead in to the moment I'm choosing (finally, I hear you cry!!) as my most memorable moment - because while we were sightseeing on Chicago's main drag (I forget the name of the road), taking touristy photos of this waterpump station now an art gallery, some inconsiderately tall bloke got in the way of my friend's photo. Yep, it was Jared, out shopping with Genevieve. So we stopped and had a really nice chat with them for a few minutes. They were both really charming and lovely. Of course one of the reasons I remember it so well is because I asked Jared if I could take a photo of them both and he said he'd rather not - so no pics of them and us dammit. Which doesn't rankle a bit, of course not ha ha ha!!

Geeze that ended up quite a ramble, didn't it? Sorry about that!

Arrived in Durham – the great views from the railway station that had me smiling.

I was looking for something else entirely and found this little gem of teenage enthusiasm in an envelope.  Oh lordy.  1974 and I couldn't spell Ray Clemence.
Emlyn Hughes card 1974
Pity it's not a real autograph, just a pre-printed one.  I did have a crush on Steve Highway though.
