My friend Joan is gaga for the WB series “Supernatural.”
She’s been watching old episodes the last couple of weeks and posting Facebook status updates filled with longing and anticipation for the new season to begin.
I’ve never watched “Supernatural,” but I am familiar with one of its stars: Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester on the show.
Jared used to appear on one of my old favorites, “Gilmore Girls.” He was Rory’s first boyfriend Dean, one of the most milk toast characters in the history of television. All Dean did each episode was smile sweetly and moon over Rory, who eventually got bored and dumped him for bad boy Jessie.
Ain’t that always the way.
Jared appears to have manned up a bit on “Supernatural.” His character Sam is a modern day warrior who chases ghosts with his older brother (named Dean oddly enough).
The only thing Jared’s two TV characters seem to have in common are bad haircuts. Padalecki has changed his hair style a bit over the past decade, but for some reason can’t seem to find one that complements his very good looking face.
I’m not the only one who feels this way, either. Yesterday EW.com offered to give him a free haircut for his birthday. That’s right. A free haircut…to a guy who works with stylists every day on set.
What gives? Why is it so hard for Jared Padalecki to get good hair? Maybe it’s some kinda curse…like the one that befell the stars of “Poltergeist.”
No word from Joan yet on how she feels about all this. But I’m guessing a new status update may be in the cards.

By mid-morning, Facebook was filled with status updates about ice cream.
Heck — it’s summer. It’s hot. Ice cream always sounds good. And since today is National Ice Cream Day, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that everyone is focused on this cold, creamy delight.
But did you know that today is also National Caviar Day?
Yep. That salty, fishy, icky treat of the upper class has its national holiday on the same day. But so far, I haven’t seen any Facebook status updates celebrating caviar.
I certainly think my friends are upper class. But perhaps, like me, the thought of eating fish eggs on a cracker doesn’t have the same appeal…especially when the really good stuff — Beluga caviar — cost $150 an ounce.
I can buy an awful lot of ice cream for that amount of money. And a hot dog…and a hamburger…and a movie ticket…and a cab ride home.
I think we have a winner.
Happy National Ice Cream Day!
