Just a quick note because I'm busy being impatient for it to be tomorrow ... My preordered Welcome to My World is on its way, and I'm buying "Dirty Love" the minute the "buy" button is working on the widget! Now THIS is Happy New Weir!

Also: Thank you to all who are working so hard to show support for Johnny with our effort to see him skate in the exhibition at Nationals, through emails, tweets, the sign brigade at the Today Show, and everything else. Yes, I know it's a long shot. And I know there are varying opinions on this issue among fans. But in our wonderful diversity, there is great strength, and a lot of love for Johnny.

For those who are participating, here's a snapshot of our Twitter campaign as of about 5 a.m. EST today--thank you!! Please keep it going, and please keep writing those emails!

Best wishes to Johnny for an amazing kick-off week, and fingers crossed that Welcome to My World makes it to the NY Times bestseller list! (It's already #1 on Amazon in "Ice Skating and Figure Skating," and #7 in "Sports Biographies"!)

BRB watching that count-down clock ...

I finished "Welcome to My World" last night. All I will say is this.

Johnny wrote of his life so honestly that I felt every experience he described to my core. The joys, the pains, the triumphs, the fears, the love, the frustrations. He takes his reader through everything, sharing his story with utter abandon.

What an amazing man, artist, athlete, son/brother/friend/family member he is.

I am blown away, like i am anytime after I watch him perform his Vancouver programs.

Painful, Strong and Beautiful.

Annie, reading the book it almost hurts sometimes, don´t it? That´s what I said and what me impressed most...his honesty. I believe him.

Very honest, very candid, a memoir to be proud of! Times where you wanted to cry, times where you wanted to laugh, times where you wanted to go out and strangle someone... And you wonder how many of these jackass commentators have even read the book or will read it! They know nothing!

Great Blog MM! Thank you so much for all you do!
