March is rodeo month in Austin. Okay. For most people, March in Austin means SXSW, but that's not something that interests me. However, I am a huge rodeo fan. I might even be writing a cowboy romance right now that deals with the rodeo. That might also be because I went four times in the two weeks it was here, which might seem like a lot, but is not enough for me.

Our first night there, we (I go with hubby) saw something we've never seen before. One of the bull riders who made it the full eight seconds, after he was off of his bull, the bull kept spinning like he couldn't pull out of it. The best part, was that it made him dizzy or something and he fell down. The bull just fell right over. That's one of the funnier things I've seen at the rodeo.

The rest of the nights there were fairly normal, but no less fun. I don't like the new rodeo clown though. Last year, for the first time since we've been doing, there was a different rodeo clown, and then there was someone new this time. The original rodeo clown, the one I'm used to, was really good at what he did. Crash Cooper. He was entertaining and I miss him. The guy last year wasn't too bad, but the one they had this year was just dull.

I actually wanted to write a Dean/Castiel Rodeo AU where Dean was a rodeo clown and Cas was a bull rider. I never got around to writing it and now I've kind of fallen out of that fandom. However, after going to the rodeo this year I decided to revisit the idea, but as an original story. Now I have a bull rider and a bull fighter finding romance together. We'll see how this works out.

I can't believe I have to wait a whole year before the rodeo comes back to Austin. This makes me sad.
