just because I haven’t seen it posted over here yet, misha said he lost one of his wedding rings while at a party where he was floating in a pool with two topless women all night and his ring slipped off his finger while he was in the water
I got my hands on an advance copy of the most acclaimed debut novels of the year, “We Are Not Ourselves” by Matthew Thomas. It was, well… I’m man enough to admit that a few pages of my copy are literally warped from tears. I talked about it nonstop for a week and then made my wife read it. She said, “It can’t be as good as you’re saying.” Fifty pages in she was still skeptical and said, “I like it,” in a slightly cavalier tone, “but I think you just read it when you were in a weird mood.” 100 pages in, she disappeared into her room and began ignoring me and the children. When she finished it she found me in the kitchen. Her glasses were wet with tears. She hugged me and said, “Beautiful. So beautiful.” It is beautiful, we agree. It’s a story about a middle-class American woman and her family, struggling to find happiness. I don’t want to say too much and influence your reading, so let me just say, I love this story so much that I decided to start a book club to trick other people into reading it. I contacted the author and he agreed to do an online book-club chat with me. The idea is I’ll chat with him and ask him my questions and your questions, and we’ll all do an old-fashioned book salon (but online). We are going to do the book club/salon in early September, 2014 and the book comes out August 19th, so get a hardcopy, or an e-book, or reserve it at the library—and read it quick! I’ll post again with exact date and time for the salon. http://www.amazon.com/We-Are-Not-Ourselves-Novel/dp/147675666X/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Some screencaps for the Misha Collins fans from the NCIS ep Singled Out from Season 4
I am running around SDCC and some guy comes up to me when I’m looking away and asks if he can take a photo with me. I start to say “of course!” and realize it’s Misha Collins. What comes out is a very garbled “Oh my god.” I was (I think) super cool in his photos and stayed in character for the pics, but when his bodyguard had my phone for photos, I let my true emotions show. You’ll note the first two photos are blurry, I’m not sure if that’s the bodyguard’s fault or the fact that I was so excited my vibrations threw off the auto focus.
