Happy Birthday, Johnny!



For the sweet BB you were ...



for the beautiful man you've become ...



for the wondrous child who still lives within you ...



for the beloved fallen angel you are
to hundreds of thousands around the world ...


... I wish much happiness today and always
to a man who exemplifies grace

in every sense of the word,
who has renewed my hope

that the world can be a better place,
and who inspires me to work

to make it happen.

May the gifts you receive

in honor of your birthday
from fans around the world--
including gifts that are out of this world!--
help you to know how much

you are truly respected,
admired, appreciated,

and most of all,
loved.

Because you give yourself
so freely to your fans,
there is no greater gift
I can offer in response
than my newly enlightened self--

Binky 2.0 / January 2010 edition--
who blogs to spread the word of Weirsus
and his fiercely fabulous
own-who-you-are-take-no-prisoners-
but-for-God's-sake-dress-well-in-the-process
message of love, respect, compassion,
and human rights for all.

But one of these less-lean years
I am going to get you a Balenciaga
in a color that you don't have. :)

Or maybe the moon, to go with your planet ...

May God bless you
as He has blessed so many

through you.

With love and best wishes
on the first anniversary

of your 25th birthday,
and always,

from Binky

This. So much.

And ditto on the Balenciaga bag, or whatever fashion item he fancies, sunglasses, fur, whatever, whatever, anything. Piling him with gifts, accolades and adulation feels very much like heaping offerings on the feet of a god, for favors bestowed, for blessings given, and in case of Johnny for his very being, for the gift he makes of himself. Church of Weirsus indeed.

OH my God, Binky, this time you made me tear up.

You have captured what makes Johnny unique so beautifully.

"For the sweet BB you were ... "

"for the beautiful man you've become ..."

"for the wondrous child who still lives within you ..."

"for the beloved fallen angel you are
to hundreds of thousands around the world ..."

"May God bless you
as He has blessed so many
through you."

Indeed.

Great post.

Outstanding. Thanks for putting into words what my jumbled brain and heart are too ineloquent to do. Love it. Love you for writing it. Love him.

bsontwit said...

you said it girl! perfectly too! and yes DAMN those arms!

His tweet last night indicated that he may love/need us as much as we love/need him. I dont know how that could be possible! I only hope he realizes how much we love, admire and support him and I am so glad so many do! He deserves it!

Johnny draws you in and makes you want to be a better person, I am glad I have been a fan for so long and I am thankful he includes us in his life.

Happy Birthday Johnny!

Crying. Again. You give him the moon, Binky. The rest of us will all chip in and give him the stars.

Every single word is perfect.

I'm so calmly happy today thinking about his birthday and how nutso we all are about him. It's like all is right in the world.
