Preach It, BB!

And here we have one of the many compelling reasons
to vote for Johnny as the USFSA Readers' Choice 
Figure Skater of the Year ...

Hey! Wake up! Johnny comes home today! And we have tons of stuff to do! So let's get on with it! And take some cues from the Japanese fans, who loved him so well this last week! Let's show him that he is equally loved and supported here at home:

(1) Today is the last day to vote for Johnny as USFSA's Readers' Choice Figure Skater of the Year! (see above for motivation. Or just watch his brilliant performance-of-a-lifetime Olympic programs while averting your eyes from the scores. Or his Oly press conference with the notable absence of any federation support. Whatever makes you want to #cuttaUSFSAbitch the most ...). One vote per e-mail address. It's called gmail. You know what to do.

(2) BGJW is one of the ten finalists for "Best Candid Reality Show" in the Tubey Awards! Johnny is on the very first page of nominees. We only have until Monday on this one, so please go there now and vote! Helpful tip: If you delete your cookies--which is technically not the same as deleting an entire bag of cookies while watching additional Pop Star on Ice footage courtesy of a special Twitter friend and some international fans, all of whom are up for Binky Awards as best video uploaders EVER--you can vote again! And again! And again! I found myself in a soothing mindless rhythm last night: Vote. Delete Internet cookies. Eat Oreo. Vote. Delete. Eat. Vote. Delete. Eat. Vote ... (need help with deleting cookies? PM me and I'll send instructions!)

(3) We're still tweeting to generate support for #Team Weirnoff on the next season of #DWTS! So please feel free to add that to your own happy mindless rhythm: Vote. Delete. Eat. Tweet. Vote. Delete. Eat. Tweet. Vote ... #internetcookieshaveno caloriesbutarealittleshortonflavor

(4) Johnny tweeted last night that he'd like us all to follow @JWArtProject on Twitter! This is the official Twitter account for the artbook Johnny Weir: I Feel Pretty, for which he did the photography session in Japan this past week. They also are working on producing a website for the project. So please go there now and follow them if you haven't already! And here's to the power of Weirsus: Within one hour of his tweet, @JWArtProject had gone from 7 followers to 1,029. As of this writing, they're now at 1,762. :)

(5) And while you're on Twitter, please show some Twitter love to Agentress Extraordinaire Tara Modlin and follow her! We helped Beauty Bear Eric Alt get to 200 followers in one night--let's see if we can get Tara to 2,500!

And finally: Just in case you need any more reasons to vote endlessly for BGJW in the Tubey Awards, may I offer one of the classic all-time fan-favorite moments from the show (with special thanks to whoever made this macro):

But first, everybody gonna vote!

Well, I did my duty re Readers`Choice Skater of the Year as did my MIL, daughter, cats (R.I.P Diego), get the drill.

Re Tubey Awards, I did my duty also but I may have to sort out how to delete cookies to join the
mindless task of
I haven´t learned so much about internet and certain ways to sneak more votes since..well...a long time ago. Anything that helps Johnny.

Starting again...NOW!

deleting cookies is done by cleaning your disks, your security program has an option for this. sometimes called a utility security pgm. look around-its not as hard as it sounds. also check help on your computer if you cant figure it out.

so so so glad that J is coming back today. i wonder what will be next?

"...additional Pop Star on Ice footage courtesy of a special Twitter friend and some international fans, all of whom are up for Binky Awards as best video uploaders..."

Um. Can I sneak a peek?

And when can we see the result for the USFSA poll? I've been campaigning shamelessly to get my RL friends to vote. Would be lovely to report a triumphant result.

This post made me buy, and devour, a packet of Oreos. Just so you know. :)

Another way to do it is if you have windows, and probably most of us do, click on 'Tools', 'Internet Options', then Delete Your Browsing History, which can be set to include temp files, saved passwords, forms data and cookies among other things. That should clear the cookies and allow you to vote again.
