Gishwhes 2017: Day #1

Written by C. Diva


According to Misha Collins, this year will be the last Gishwhes, and after seeing the List, I can tell you the hunt is going out with a bang. In all honesty, I wasn’t planning on participating in Gishwhes again, but, after the coaxing of a good friend and Misha’s announcement, I decided to join the melee one last time, and I’ve met some pretty great people. Each year, Team Mutiny in the Impala changes a bit, which can be a challenge in terms of communication and getting to know one another, but has worked out well for us so far this year. Our new teammates are pumped for the hunt and bring with them a spark of excitement that has our entire team revved up, and I am looking forward to group activities where local teammates can get together and work on items.

As the day winds down, I am so glad that I hopped on the final Gish-train. There’s nothing more grounding than doing something kind and/or silly for the wide world, which is what Gishwhes is ultimately about. Not only that, but this year’s list is much more politically motivated than those in the past have been, which should be a surprise to those who know how Misha feels about politics these days. I’m happy to report that I learned about Ted Lieu’s proposed bill “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017” and only got locked out of my Twitter twice today after tweeting my 40 California representatives, all by 10am.

Happy Gishing, friends!
