January 18 Some priceless quotes from Jared from Issue #2 of the Supernatural: Official Magazine:
I think the reason Jensen and I got along so well was because we didn't really go about bonding....It didn't feel like a blind date. It felt like we were continuing a relationship as opposed to saying, 'All right, we're supposed to hang out with each other...or something.' We just sort of hung out....We just hit it off immediately. There's no rhyme of reason to what happened.
When we can, we love to go out and have a drink, watch football, or catch a hockey game now that we're in Canada....whenever we get the chance, we'll hang out, play basketball or work out or something...
I find that if I don't work out, I have too much energy and I'm kind of annoying.
January 18-20 Fangoria Texas 2008 Favourite quote:
It's kinda two stories. A guy asked Jared to share a dirty secret from the set, something that's not usually published. Of course, there was a o_O moment, and Jared said he'd get back to him on that. It became kind of an in-joke after that whenever Jared slipped. Someone asked what what he'd done to improve his performance even more this third season, and he just deadpanned "Drugs." Then he laughed, said, "no, not drugs" then turned to the first guy and said, "Ah, dirty secret."
Well, someone asked about him working with Sandy and if it was difficult. He mentioned (and I'm trying to remember it all since I didn't exactly take notes) that it was kinda hard to turn off the history between the two of them. Like, he spends a lot of time with Jensen too, but he doesn't kiss Jensen...in public. "Dirty secret." *cue laughtrack* source
late January European Vacation. Jared headed to Europe where he later found out he proposed to Sandy in Paris. We don't have video of that, we do of an interview with Digital Spy.
January 31 The first episode for 2008, 3.09 Malleus Maleficarum, airs.
February 6 The Contractural Obligations Tour - Jensen Down Under Jensen arrived in Australia as part of a WB press tour. Despite the tour featuring stars from shows with much higher ratings in Australia, Jensen garnered the bulk of the publicity with radio, TV and many hot pics. Link to collected material Highlight included an appearance on the comedy show Good News Week, which featured some playful flirting with hot Paul McDermott. Including this exchange:
Paul mentioned that he found a website called "I worship at the shrine of Jensen's Ackles Ass." And Jensen shot back "How long have you been running that?"
- Jensen Good News Week appearance
- Jensen answers fan questions Part One and Part Two includes TOM WELLING impersonation
- New Supernatural promo "It's a Guy Thing"
- from Sydney Sun Herald:
He's Super Naturally... Deliciously handsome Jensen Ackles gets the award for the yummiest Yank visiting Sydney last week. And also the most down-to-earth. The Channel Ten star of Supernatural was far from star-like during his stay, even catching the bus to Bondi to do the cliff walk. Yes, that's right - he caught the bus. He was travelling with his girlfriend (insert disappointed sigh here)and took her on low-key, but romantic dates, such as catching the ferry to Manly, heading out to Watson Bay for fish and chips and visiting Taronga Zoo. His girlfriend had to return to the US early so he used the time to shop secretly for a magnificent opal for her as a gift to commemorate their trip. Awwwwww
- WHO Weekly has a nice interview where he talked about liking sharks and being a bad influence as an uncle.
Hot pics: There were many but these two were my favs

March 29-30 Salute to Supernatural L.A. 2008 Jared and Jensen along with other guest including Sandy and Eric Kripke. Highlights include:
