Accidental crosspost from Dreamwidth there.

Yesterday, thinking that I was going to get to the Vancouver SPN Con after all, I went out running and found I had another mile in me! Five miles-- whoo!

Today, after discovering that I CAN'T go after all (thanks, Homeland Security Passport Policies), I got into the leftover birthday cake and my bike ride was dismal and frustrating, and I wound up cutting it a little short. So human, so unhelpful. This won't make fitting into a dress for my niece's wedding any easier!

To spread some "Voom" instead of Doom and Gloom, here's a link to the Supernatural Season 4 Gag Reel, assuming you haven't already seen it. Though I've got to say, if I were in Jensen's shoes, I'd be dousing all of Jared's food and beverages with Beano. :0

And yes, YouTube (and fanfiction.net), I know I need to upgrade my browser! Think I'm going to go "off-book" and try Firefox, because my company doesn't want XP users to go beyond I.E. 6, and I.E. 7 is targeted for "Vista" users only (like I'm ever going to let THAT happen to my PC). Apparently, others have done the end-run around company policy and gone for Firefox and other browsers as well. I figure I.E. 8 might get approved in about 2 fiscal years, so that's a no-go.

Speaking of Dreamwidth above... I have 3 ONE invite codes. Comment below with your email address if you're interested!

If you go with Firefox, be sure to get the plug-in called Download Helper. It's handy for downloading vids quickly and conveniently (to the removable medium of your choice, for safety, of course).

Thanks for the tip!

I suspect Firefox will be my choice- enough officemates use it that I'm confortable that it's safe enough.

Yeah, I find it very solid. I'm on a Mac platform, though, so if you use a PC, I can't promise you you'll be as happy with it as I've been.
