The Year started with production in limbo and the boys on an extended holiday due to the [[Writers Guild of America Strike]].
January 18 Some priceless quotes from Jared from Issue #2 of the Official
I think the reason Jensen and I got along so well was because we didn't really go about bonding....It didn't feel like a blind date. It felt like we were continuing a relationship as opposed to saying, 'All right, we're supposed to hang out with each other...or something.' We just sort of hung out....We just hit it off immediately. There's no rhyme of reason to what happened.
When we can, we love to go out and have a drink, watch football, or catch a hockey game now that we're in Canada....whenever we get the chance, we'll hang out, play basketball or work out or something...
I find that if I don't work out, I have too much energy and I'm kind of annoying.January 18-20 Fangoria , Texas
It's kinda two stories. A guy asked Jared to share a dirty secret from the set, something that's not usually published. Of course, there was a o_O moment, and Jared said he'd get back to him on that. It became kind of an in-joke after that whenever Jared slipped. Someone asked what what he'd done to improve his performance even more this third season, and he just deadpanned "Drugs." Then he laughed, said, "no, not drugs" then turned to the first guy and said, "Ah, dirty secret." Well, someone asked about him working with Sandy and if it was difficult. He mentioned (and I'm trying to remember it all since I didn't exactly take notes) that it was kinda hard to turn off the history between the two of them. Like, he spends a lot of time with Jensen too, but he doesn't kiss Jensen...in public. "Dirty secret." *cue laughtrack* source
late January European Vacation. Jared headed to Europe where he later found out he proposed to Sandy in Paris. We don' t have video of that, we do of an interview with Digital Spy.
This pic from French Mag Arthelius was rather divine: Frebruary 6 The Contractural Obligations Tour - Jensen Down Under
Jensen arrived in Oz as part of a WB press tour. Despite the tour featuring stars from shows with much higher ratings in Australia, Jensen garnered the bulk of the publicity with radio, TV and many hot pics.
