Special Saturday / Sunday / WTFever-day: Best of Melbourne

Johnny's heading home soon! On ... some particular day! Which is either today or tomorrow or possibly yesterday, depending on your perspective and your skill with a time-zone converter!

So while we wait, may I briefly present the best of the Melbourne trip as summed up by these highlights:

We Came.

Tara and Johnny upon arrival in Melbourne
on Wednesday / Tuesday / Thursday /

some day with the word "day" in it.

We Performed.

From TurboTripleM: High-quality video of Johnny's performance of "Ave Maria" ...

We Conquered.

... and his performance of "Bad Romance."

And Also Made Everyone Else Gasp OMGIDIE! and Begin Flailing Helplessly.

My Twitter friend @mayulovemayu
created the perfect caption for this:
"@JohnnyGWeir is a diver.(^_-)
@matthew_mitcham is a diva.(^_-) "

Please review all carefully (by which I mean stare / watch / stare / get another cup of coffee / stare / consider that really, while we haven't given up on the ultimate #whitespeedo dream, darker colors also work just fine / watch / stare / breathe a prayer that Butch and Grams captured every last moment of this sparktacular encounter on film and that it will consume two or more entire 90-minute episodes of BGJW this coming season / allow coffee to grow cold whilst you consider that scenario in stunning detail / lather / rinse / repeat and then give yourself one last treat while we're waiting for some other day that does, in fact, have Johnny in it or at least in the same hemisphere by running over to TaraAgent Modlin's FB profile and rolling around in the treasure trove of Melbourne Zoo etc. pics she blithely posted yesterday not realizing that she will be directly responsible for all of FB's servers crashing at once from her bandwidth overload as 74,950 Twitter followers and 42,352 FB fans collide like electrons at a rave all buzzed up on Four Loko ...)

Binx, I love ya' :-) You are one of the best wordsmiths whose work I've ever had the pleasure to read.

Wish I could do the trip to Flint. I'm sure the show there will be wonderful.

Looks like Australia loved having Johnny visit, play and skate:-) From the pics Tara and others posted, I would say that Johnny and Tara loved Australia back ❣

Johnny's Ave Maria skate is one of my most favorite, for it is truly one of his most beautiful. Perfect choice for the Christmas Holiday.

Johnny & Matthew pic? OH DADDIES!!

Chrissy-cat, who is usually oblivious to everything not pertaining to food, was totally captivated by Johnny's Ave Maria skate. She was reclining on the computer table near the monitor and didn't look up once until the music started.

Even little old kitties appreciate the beauty of Johnny's skating!
