China: Shanghai Noon.

Er, Noon-Ish. Whatever. Who Cares? I Don't
Even Know What Day It Is. Let's Go Shopping!

Wednesday, 07/20/2011, 9:51 a.m.
Getting ready to hit some stores in Shanghai.
Eric says: "Johnny doing the happy dance
because he LOVES to shop ..."

Yes! They're on their way home! After two weeks and four amazing Artistry On Ice shows in packed arenas, Johnny and Eric left Asia this afternoon and should be landing on the East Coast ... also this afternoon just about 30 minutes before they took off. So they get to have Monday twice which I'm hoping means they can sleep twice as long when they get home because I think they're perhaps slightly exhausted. I'm guessing this via my sharply honed intuition from the latest batch of emails from dear wonderful Eric, who sent a final set of exclusive pics with captions that mostly read like this:

I'm so tired ...

So T I R E D ZZZZZzzzzzzzzz.........

And variations thereof.

So, whilst our heroes wing their way home across 6,725 miles of land and sea, here is one last look behind the scenes in China courtesy of Beauty Bear Eric, who did an outstanding job of feeding Johnny's fans some really great photos despite achingly slow Internet and the challenge of days and nights that became an increasingly sweaty blur of rehearsals and hotels and shows and fans and airports and OMG WE'RE HAVING DINNER WITH SARAH JESSICA PARKER AND HER STYLIST SERGE NORMANT OMG and more shows and hotels and airports etc. etc. ...

... culminating in this Facebook status update from Eric about six hours ago (as of this writing):

Japan. 1,0000000000000 hours flight and then home.

Eric, thank you SO much for taking the time to share these pics with everyone. We love you!! And that skater guy too!!

(As always, please click any photo to open it in a new window, and click again for full-size view. Some of these are huuuuuuuge ...)

Shopping in Shanghai.

IDK where they are or what he's wearing,
but he seems like he just stopped in his tracks
at the sight of this fabulousness in the mirror.
Which is completely understandable.

Wednesday, 07/20/2011, 12:32 p.m.
Still shopping.

Hmmmmm ... should we try more stuff on?

Yes. Yes, we should.

Thursday, 07/21/2011, 8:14 p.m.
Fan meeting at the hotel in Shanghai (I think).

Here they come!
(You can see Johnny to the far left
waiting for everybody.)

Autographing anything and everything
set in front of him ...

... including this cool thing ...

... and then enjoying this piece of fan art.
Eric writes, "This actually says,
'Where is my Mr 8.5?' ... lol."

Johnny with the lovely creator
of the "Mr 8.5" artwork.

Johnny and his very happy fans!

And finally: My absolute favorite
of the Shanghai shopping photos.
OMG. Love this.

I love everything!!! A *multitude* of thanks to Eric and Bink (and Johnny!) for so many fun behind-the-scenes photos and stories this week! xoxo

Oh, I love the smell of fresh Johnny in the morning!

Imma take a moment of reflection on "Mr. 8.5"...okay, nothing but teehees in my head.

This whole post is delicious like something warm with butter and syrup. Which brings me back to the smell of Johnny in the morning and Mr. 8.5, and everything in my brain is super awkward this morning. ;O)

OH that's def my fave outfit as well. With syrup even.

LOL to Johnny and Eric and the shopping photos! Great blog MM!

Nicky said...

I don't mean to be thick but what is the meaning of Mr.8.5?

Misfit Mimes said...

Nicky, I think she's making a reference to Johnny's infamous (but thoroughly enjoyable) Howard Stern interview... And that's about all we can say about that here in this semi- family-friendly blog...

You can listen to the interview in its entirety here:
