A trend is a friend you’ve actually met several times and enjoy hanging out with.

First, last weekend: So much stuff. There was an amazing show of support for IDAHOT, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. And the Phandom Tumblr Meetup—such lovely phans. Plus JIBcon for the SPN crowd. Finally, for Swifties, the Rock in Rio concert in Vegas, the Rio of Nevada.

In teevee: After 33 years, David Letterman stepped down from his talk show with crankiness and grace. And on The Flash, Barry Allen goes back in time through a wormhole instead of reversing the rotation of the earth like a normal superperson.

In crime: The Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, hosted a 165-person shootout between rival biker factions. Conspicuously missing from the media coverage: words like “thug,” “gangbanger,” and “riot.”  

In music: More Tay. This time at the Billboard Music Awards where she won everything before blowing up the building.

In anger: Mad Men, Mad Max, what’s next? A Mad About You reunion? No, there are currently no plans for a Mad About You reunion.

In comebacks: Fossil-crazy audiences are boning up on their archaeology to prepare for Hollywood’s latest dinosaur romp.

In big cats: Lions are definitely having a moment.

In perfect people: All hail Amy Poehler, queen of Cannes, counselor of camp. May this American summer be your wettest ever.

From you guys: Some of the best damn character design anywhere. Keep drawing and writing and making your own entertainment.

And check out some of the week’s most popular blogs:

I know I already posted a picture of my photo op with Jensen, but I wanted to have it in better quality on my blog, so posting again. 

I just can’t with this man. It’s been almost a week, and now it all seems like a dream. I can’t believe I was in Rome a week ago, and that I laughed, and I cried - especially when Daniela told us Jared isn’t coming. 

This man still made it all worth it. Don’t get me wrong, I love every single one of them. And I fell in love with every single one of them over and over again for three days straight. I laughed at their jokes, and I cried a lot - mostly because I was so happy. I couldn’t believe my dreams are coming true. I was tearing up while waiting for this photo op. I cried like an idiot when I picked up Misha’s photo op. I cried during Felicia’s, Osric’s and Greyston’s panel. I was overwhelmed.

But this man. OH, this man… He’s all that and so much more. Photo ops maybe don’t last that long, but he makes sure those few seconds are all yours. He makes sure those few seconds count. He makes sure they last forever. He’s not one of those “I’m a huge celebrity and everyone loves me, so I don’t really care” type. He appreciates you for being you. You could see that every single photo was as important to him as it was for the fans. And I can’t stop loving him for that, and I can’t stress enough how important this fact is. That this man, loved by so many people, gives that love back and doesn’t take it for granted. 

He may hug you just for the photo, but the real thing happens when the photo is taken - he hugs you even more tightly than the second before, and he thanks you for being there, and he does it so sincerely and humbly that there’s no doubt that he really means it.

That is how you make - and keep (!) fans. This man really proved me that I’ve chosen the right people to love and admire. 

I don’t know what I did to deserve this opportunity, but I am forever grateful for it. I just hope it wasn’t the last one. <3
