You all KNOW how much I love Jensen Ackles and when, on August 24, 2014, the actor, father and all around grumpy old man joined Twitter, he opened up his world to fans and allowed us to get a glimpse into his life. His hashtags are hilarious, he gets mad at the internet, and, hey kid, you’d better get off his lawn! In honor of Jensen’s one year Twitter-versary, here are my all time favorite tweets from Old Man Ackles (in order).

p.s. This post is dedicated to Jams, who’s having a crappy day. Go say hi and show her some love ❤
10) Jammin’ in the a.m.
He’s a musician. He jams. in the a.m. wearing sleeveless shirts! Yeah, guys, this is the first week Jensen got Twitter and I think the fans knew we were in for a bunch of really great selfies.
9) Live tweeting with Misha and Jared the 200th episode
The interaction between Jensen, Misha and Jared is fun to watch on screen and off. And Jensen? You are absolutely that type of girl.
Over the years, the Collectress and I have done some strange things in honor of our overlord’s August 20th birthday. This week, to celebrate Misha Collins and the inspiration he brings, me and a few friends participated in random acts of kindness and wanted to share our stories with you. Some did a kind deed for a friend, some for strangers, all because we want to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time. If you’re inspired, why not go out and do something nice for someone this weekend? It doesn’t cost anything to get kind, plus being nice is clinically proven to lower your chances of being an assbutt and raise your level of angel-dom.
Thanks for making us want to be better people, Misha and we hope your birthday was filled with joy, laughter, love and kindness!

There’s a moment, I think all of us self-identified geeks know it, when you walk into your first con and think: I have finally found my people. Where once you existed in isolation, able to share your passions with a few anonymous faces on line, suddenly you’re among other, actual, living, breathing, nerds. The thing about you that had to be hidden – your nerdiness – is something that is shared with this mass of people and celebrated. The only thing comparable I can think of was my first time stepping into a gay pride festival, fresh off of coming out. It was so welcoming and so much fun, and I was indeed suddenly so proud to be myself. Cons are like that. The moment when you’re walking down the street and see the first person dressed as Poison Ivy adjusting their bodice or Darth Vader in the coffee shop, and you know it: you’re home.
I felt that moment profoundly the first time I attended Geek Girl Con in Seattle in August of 2012. GGC was in its second year, just getting its feet wet, and it was still an amazing experience. As I roamed the aisles full of crocheted Avengers, independent game developers, geek community organizations, writers, and artists; I was amazed at the passion and creativity of fans like me, which I had never seen in person. I attended panels about misogyny in gaming and depictions of disability in geek media. I geeked out with dozens of others who were just as nerdy and passionate about these things as me. It was awesome.
I left that first con in awe of female geek culture, and its boundless capacity for critique, transformation, and creation. I didn’t know then how lucky I was that this was my first con experience, and I think it has profoundly shaped the way I view fandom as a positive space for dialog, community, creativity, and especially for women.
Because it’s not always that way.
