If It's Wednesday, This Must Be Miami ... No, Wait, Philly ... No, Crap, It's Thursday

Johnny in Philadelphia last night
at the first of six appearances for Macy's in June
as part of their Pride + Joy initiative for LGBT Pride Month.
Tonight he'll be at Macy's Metro Center
in Washington, DC--don't miss it!
More Philly photos available at the Wire Image gallery!

So what's it like to be a globe-trotting, glamorous, glitzy superstar of skating, film, and fashion? Well, first there's a lot of this:

I have to say as a writer that
"trying desperately to stun away under-slept eye purses"
is an amazingly articulate turn of phrase
at ohfuck o'clock in the morning. :)

Then there's some of this, which is skating on plastic ice in a ballroom partially enveloped in fake fog ...

Photo tweeted by @LeeAshley of MAC, who wrote:
"@JohnnyGWeir performing for us at TTT
with makeup by my love @joeycamasta!
Go Joey and Johnny!!!!"

... and with really awesome hair and makeup (how are there not extreme close-ups from every angle of this? Someone? Anyone? Seriously?) ...

Another photo from MAC tweeted by Cary Neer.
Which hints at absolutely cosmic fabulousness
but I need my jeweler's loupe to really sort it out.
Which I seem to have misplaced.
Close-ups, people. WE. NEED. CLOSE-UPS.

And then sometimes there's stuff like this:

And then there's lots and lots of this: Appearances and autographing--injured thumb and all--and hugging and generally making fans happy, which yesterday happened at Macy's Center City in Philly ...

... in which there also was lots of chatting it up and posing with random people, as in these pics ...

Photo tweeted by Tara, who, although of course
she always finds Johnny completely riveting,
was pondering sidling over to the Macy's bridal registry
for just a sec ...

Johnny with Philly Street Style's Jimmy Contreras,
who tweeted this pic. Jimmy also posted a great blog entry
last Saturday highlighting Johnny's visit to Philly
as part of Macy's LGBT Pride Month events.

And a whole lot of this: Excelling at kindness, thoughtfulness, and making fans very, very happy:

The flowers in question, sent by Bernadette,
dear friend of Binky and Facebook fan Ruth Albrecht,
among many others, and known as the "Lovely Lurker-tress"
for her charming habit of lurking on the Facebook fan page.
Bernadette, it's your moment
in the sparkly sunshine of Johnny. :)
Sullivan Owen, the florist who designed the bouquet
for Bernadette, even blogged about it here!

And here is Johnny at Macy's with Bernadette's flowers. ♥

And finally: Not in any way nearly enough of this:

Johnny and Tara at the airport
waiting to catch their flight to Philly,
having already put in a full day's work
in Miami before noon.

"he´s rpcking those shorts love it!

May I say that I have a thing for Johnny in shorts. Definitely agree. He´s rocking his shorts.

In other news and as I said somewhere else:

"He came, he saw, he conquered"

He´s good at just being himself.

Great blog again. Thank you.

Oh...and I think those flowers send by Bernadette are gorgeous.

Peace said...

Kay I did that thing where you click on ctrl or whatever and roll the mouse thingy to make the picture gigantor size, to very little end except to wonder, is he even wearing a shirt?? is his face painted a funny color?? WANT MOAR HAIR PICS. I echo your pleading for BIGGER PICTURES HELLO YOU"RE AT a COSMETICS THING where people are BEAUTIFUL is it top secret like spy stuff or what?

But that turqouisey shirt is my fave color and I hope someone had smelling salts when Miss B saw the whole thing.

Also, he's not everywhere, he's everywhere but where I am. Pout. Still living vicariously through the cabal and thanking the gods for Binkyventions of info and squee whenever they happen. xoxo

Also the continuing saga of us begging MAC Cosmetics to show us parched kittens the thirst-quenching skating video.

And of Johnny wearing Tara's (?) ring and when will she get it back...

By the way, Bernadette, those pitcher plants and peonies are awesome.

Thank you, Misfit, for lassoing all this together.
