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!

I'm so sorry to hear you cannot go after all.
I so hoped you could.I'm into rowing(fours) and so far I've actually been quite proud of myself for keeping up with training sessions,etc.
Last Saturday my boss called me in and told me I had to cover for a colleague, who is in charge of the students' library.
All of a sudden I found myself faced with three truckloads of textbooks for this school year (and virtually no one to help me cart them into the building,much less unpack them,bag them,etc.)
I haven't been rowing ever since,which is a shame.

Me too-- I got the chance to be all excited about it for less than 24 hours before it all came crashing down. And if it weren't for that wedding, I'd have handled the arrangements ages ago (including the flight) and discovered that I needed the passport, so THAT would have been taken care of too!

I'm sorry the unexpected work detail cut into your exercise time. Did you at least find that you had much stronger arms to deal with all those books? That's always a nice realization-- that there's benefit from the exercise you do.

I remember the first time I went hiking after months and months of alternating biking and running. I was surprised at how easy the hiking was, and how much my balance had improved! Who knew that stronger legs would make coping with those uneven surfaces so much easier?
