Randomness and a Question

It's after midnight and I'm trying to avoid going to sleep, for fear of the work week arriving quicker once I do. (Nevermind that it'd probably be better to start the work week on more sleep...rationality is for chumps).

So, let's go over some things I learned tonight by watching the few Chicago Con videos that have trickled in:
1)Dean's lines in 5x08 about "no talent douchebags" was Jensen adlibbing. Also, so was the "a plane crashed here" line in the same speech. Man, Jensen is hilarious.

2)People will pay a lot of money for a watch. I just...I mean, yay for Jared's mom's students...but that was more money than I make in a MONTH! Wow...must be nice to be rich. Ah well, I might not have Sam's watch, but I do live in the same city as the boys, and that's free! Yay! (Well, actually, it cost me about $1200 to drive across the country when I moved here, but that's still cheaper than that watch.)

In other news:
- I like to bold things randomly in entries, in the hopes that it means people will read them.

The status of my fic:

- The show still hasn't gotten to a point where I feel comfortable weaving in a sequel to Damned Demented Demons. I'm thinking I may have to wait until the spring before I start anything...but we'll see. It all depends what happens in the next episode and the first couple in January.
- I AM, however, working on a short Bobby + Hermione piece. No guarantees about when that will be posted, but it is something I'm working on.
- If you are wondering why I'm not as prolific as I was with DDD, it's because I've started working on my novel again...which means I'm doing completely non-supernatural-related writing...which obviously i wouldn't post here. The goal is to do a chapter a month. So far I was a week late on my chapter for October, and I only just started my chapter for November. The only person reading it right now is my sister.
- There is at least one other Supernatural fanfic I want to write, and that I've got about half done, but it's slow going...and truth is, I'm not sure it'll ever be good enough to post. Still, it's there. So, it's not like I've been doing nothing, you know?

Ok, QUESTION TIME:
- I'm not promising anything, but if I were to write a fic in which Dean and Sam encountered a boggart...what do you think it would manifest as? For non-Harry-Potter fans out there, basically what I'm asking is: What do you think Sam and Dean's greatest fears are? I've actually already sort of made up my mind about Dean's, but I'd be interested to know what you thought Sam's is?

Random Vancouver Information:
- The mountains are covered with snow now. When I can see them, they are beautiful.
- It starts getting dark here at 4pm. I realized that this is the furthest north that I've ever lived, even where I lived in Newfoundland was further south latitudinally. It's only November too...the 21st of December is going to be crazy dark.

The bid on that watch was crazy insane! That's the only video from the con I've watched so far. I'm avoiding the others as much as possible (Must. Use. Restraint!). But then at VanCon I saw people buying tons of things for outlandish prices (IMO) and heard that one of the gals there had $100,000 to play with. Wow. And yes, she did buy several of the pricier items that were up for auction.

LOL I do this too! "If I bold this part they'll see it for sure." :P

Ah, welcome to the Pacific Northwest! In recent years I've started to really hate fall and winter. The days are soooo short. The rain, the wind, the bitter cold. Bleh. I'm wishing I had summer back.

Ah, welcome to the Pacific Northwest!

The crazy thing is that although this is the furthest north I've ever lived, it is still SOUTH for Canada. I mean, I've always known that the majority of my country (in land, not population) enjoyed near 24 hour darkness in the depths of winter, but man, it's a whole different type of knowledge when you actually experience the difference for yourself. I'm going to have to start popping vitamin D capsules or something...I'm even more amazed and impressed now by the people who live places like Yellowknife or Whitehorse...or Tuktoyaktuk.

I just watched the video of the bid on the watch myself! I had only read reports on it before...and I must say, if I DID have a month's salary to burn, it'd be totally worth it to make someone as happy as that lady made Jared.

But yeah, I'm just...astounded that there is that kind of wealth in the world, I guess.

Where are all the vids???

Oooo, good question....maybe Sam's would be him with Lucifer inside of him?

If you go to the SuperWiki, they are linked off there.

Funny, that's what I was thinking for Dean. Maybe they have the same fear!
