I flock almost all of what I post. It's nothing personal.

Firstly, as there may be concepts, ideas or language that I'm not entirely comfortable with being seen by minors.
My field of employment means I have to maintain a professional demeanor, and while I'm happy to share pics and snippets with my flist, I don't want randoms getting in.

Also, I like to keep my flist small and I DON'T AUTOMATICALLY FRIEND BACK. If we're friends, we really ARE friends. But I AM happy to friend you back if we know each other from the Supernatural OR Whedon fandoms.

Please don't be crazy or even worse, a family member's sock puppet!

Today is the day Misha Collins runs as far as he can to raise money for his charity Random Acts.

As soon as I heard about what he was doing, I felt compelled to also do something in support. Anyone who read my AHBL2 con account knows why. So I resolved that I, too, would run on the day. For as long as I possibly could.

And then I spoke to a friend, and she made me realise that was actually a really stupid idea. I'm kinda uber competitive and determined, and likely would have done myself damage. Hobbling around the USA on crutches is no one's idea of a good time!

I thought about it and set myself a goal instead. To run/walk a progressive marathon over the course of the week. 42 kilometers in 7 days. Easy, right? 

And it turns out that, fired up by the Zombie Apocalypse soundtrack, YES, it actually was! So much so that I reached my goal yesterday and decided to do a bonus 8kms today. 

I covered 50 kilometers this week. I'm going to say that again because it makes me go like wot? FIFTY KILOMETRES. 

I'm 35 and always so very busy with work/life. I'm not a fitness fanatic and I'm still a long way off my goal weight. So I never would have thought I'd be capable of achieving it. When Misha does his run today, I hope he knows that we're all kind of running along beside him (and also in front of and behind him) in spirit. He's inspirational and I know that he's enriched my life and pushed me to do things I could never have dreamed were possible.

So, if you haven't pledged yet, or were waiting for Misha to do his run, can you please think about adding an extra 50 cents to your donation? It would mean the world to me and most importantly, benefit those who get a random act of kindness in a time of need. 

And run, Misha, RUN!

Last weekend I headed off on my yearly jaunt to Supanova Con in Sydney. I guess the best way to describe it is as a mini San Diego Comic Con, but one which gets in about 16 000 people and not 10 or 20 times as many!

I was ridiculously excited as this year was ‘Whedonverse’ Year, with a particular emphasis on the chicks. So we got Eliza Dushku, Summer Glau, Charisma Carpenter and Dichen Lachman. And Mark Lutz snuck in there, too.

Pics and Stuff be here... )
