So I got about 90% of his panel on video. I'll upload it, but with the shitty wifi here in the hotel, it'll likely take me all night, or maybe until later in the week. If worse comes to worst, I'll upload it when I get home on Thursday.

My two Misha stories:

He collected feminine products for Salvation Army (ugh, but what can you do), because it was brought to his attention what a waste it was that one of the GISHWHES items from last year (art with feminine products? something like) was a waste of a resource that shelters and poor women need very badly. So he asked the audience to bring feminine products (which of course they did) and he built a fort onstage (or some of his minions did, rather). And someone, thoughtfully, had only given a single wrapped tampon, so they gave it to Misha and he played with it, pushing it through and out of the holder. And then he threw it into the audience.

GUESS WHERE IT LANDED. GUESS.

:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I have the tampon.

And then, I didn't bring anything for people to sign. I had alllll the autographs, which I didn't bother with the first day, but which I was DEFINITELY going to bother with today. I didn't want autographs, though, because I just don't fucking DO autographs. I don't keep stuff like that. I have a picture of me and my wife with Kate and David Hewlett signed by both of them, and it's sitting in a closet somewhere. I have about 80 autographed things from Jared Leto and 30stm, and they're in that same closet. I've thrown away most of the autographs I've gotten, honestly. I just... what the hell am I supposed to do with them?

SO ANYWAY. I went to the Return of the King premiere in London. And I went with a couple of great ladies, and one of them didn't want autographs - she asked for handshakes instead. Ian McKellen and Viggo were both super-impressed and happy. A few of the hobbits were confused but lovely about it. So that's what I decided to do. I was going to shake their hands and thank them. Of course, I was only planning to do this with Misha, because I don't really care about Sebastian Roche or Mark Pellegrino, and while I like Mark Sheppard, I don't feel as strongly about him as Misha.

Unfortunately, it was an assembly line. So when my row got called, I got stuffed in Mark Sheppard's line. I shook Mark's hand and told him he was a lovely person and I enjoyed most of his work. He had a great handshake and said "that's very sweet." Which was awesome! (Especially because I was kicking myself about the way I phrased it - "most of his work" - I meant "what I've seen, I've loved" but I think the phrasing makes it sound like "most of your stuff is great! But some of it is just utter shit" which... he didn't notice, I guess?) And then I skipped Sebastian's line (which was out of control - he chats WAY more than Mark) and went to the other line, which was Mark P and Misha. And I tried to get out of Mark P, but the gatekeeper was so close to him that he would've seen me skip the line, so I just had him sign my badge and said thank you.

AND THEN MISHA. I pulled out the tampon (I'd been toying with the idea of him signing it) and said, "You threw this at me, so I just wanted to say thanks," and he grinned. And then I said, "And I'm not going to make you sign anything, but I want to shake your hand and tell you what a wonderful human being you are." And he took my hand in both of his, put his head down, and said, "No, I'm not." And I squeezed his hands and said, "Yes, you are." And he said thank you and I was ushered off.

And then I was shaking. And I realized that I am going to save up a ridiculous amount of money for the Misha meet n' greet because there is nothing I want more than to be able to sit in that man's presence for 45 minutes (or walk with him around somewhere) and just breathe the same air. I love him. He really is truly a wonderful human being.

(WTF am I supposed to do with this now? I have a tampon Misha threw at me. I can't just throw it away. But it's a tampon. WTF. I AM SO LOST.)
