RSVP: Maybe • Yes • OMGIDIE

Oooooo ... this just popped up this morning on Johnny's website!
I have of course already happily accepted his invitation
and forwarded my regrets to Will and Kate,
since I couldn't possibly risk not making it back from London
in time for this rather more important event ...
Art is from the fab eDressMe page, where Johnny's designs
will be available for purchase this Saturday
after they are unveiled on the ice à la Elise Øverland.
Johnny also tweeted yesterday that he's premiering
a new number at Ice Dreams!
So if there's any chance at all you can make it to the show--
this is a don't-miss event in Johnny history!
Click to get your tix today!

I'm having a lot of trouble putting any kind of coherent blog post together since the only thing currently running through my head is OMGICEDREAMSISSATURDAYOMG, but fortunately my friend and fellow Johnny blogger Nancy Knisley has come to my rescue. In celebration of the 1,000th quote posted on her blog, The Quotable Johnny Weir, she has put together another Johnny trivia quiz for us to enjoy! Test your knowledge of random Johnny stuff--all answers can be found on Nancy's blog. Check back tomorrow to see how well you did! (BTW Nancy is currently taking a break while recovering from knee-replacement surgery, so please feel free to stop by her Facebook page to leave well wishes for her. ♥)

Thank you to Nancy and Binky, for another fun installment. Good quiz. For the few questions I did not know the answers to, the choice of answers was perfectly baffling.

Heart be still...regarding Johnny's skating and dress event. Looking forward to your account and accompanying ethereal photographs.

As for the wedding, I regard it like the Superbowl...a good time to shop at the food store because the aisles will be more clear.
