No Time Like the Present (Whatever That Means) For Picspam!

Given that the concept of time as a linear construct is currently rendered meaningless when people are sending me photos at 4 a.m. on Thursday of the lunch they already had at noon eight hours later that same day, we're just going to use the tesseract and head back to Tokyo for a minute or whatever word we're using to measure time today (I'm going with "pretzel") to check in with our beloved travelers (bonus pretzels if you got the tesseract reference without clicking the link):

Johnny being ... Johnny. 
Narita Airport, Tokyo, August 31.

and the other equally fabulous shots below 
on Johnny's Facebook fan page Thursday.
By which I mean the Friday we're having yesterday. 
Thank you for sharing these, Machiko!!

His manicure! 
(And those beautiful hands!)

His managtress! 
Who has apparently had the great good fortune 
to have had a Starbucks or five after deplaning, 
judging by the now wide-awake eyes and the fact 
that she's using the Hello Johnny fan at the speed of light....

...thus leaving Johnny to fend for himself 
with whatever he's got here on a lanyard that says "Cooler," 
which I'm guessing he desperately wishes he was 
right at that moment...

And now, on to the details of the last 48 hours or next week or something...

Thursday, 09/02/2011, 11:53 a.m.
Tara writes: "We went for lunch."
"Then he had off-ice practice." 
Which, alas, was not captured for posterity. 
Or maybe they photographed it tomorrow.

09/01/2011, 6:32 p.m.
Random on-ice practice photo.
Time to play, "Where's Johnny....?"

Friday, 09/02/2011, 7:50 a.m.
The alarm is raised.

09/02/2011, 8:43 a.m.
The call goes out.
新潟 means "Niigata."
(She also tweeted the message in Japanese.)

09/02/2011, 9:37 a.m.
And help arrives. Ahhhhhhhh.
Tara says, "This is what happens 
when you are Johnny Weir and you tweet, 
'I want Starbucks!' 
while you're in Japan..."

09/02/2011, 9:54 a.m.
Random practice photo #1.

Random practice photo #2.

Random practice photo #3.
"This is closing rehearsal... with the fabulous Antonio!"
[There are apparently god-like Spanish dancers
involved in this show, and I think Antonio fits in
there somewhere? Maybe doing choreography?
IDK I didn't have a chance to ask her.]
(UPDATE: I think THIS is Antonio!! 
Special thanks to Karen Weeks for the info!)
"In the front there... blue and then to the right... 
and then right again... 
are Jeremy, Fabian, and Johnny."

Random practice photo #4.

Random practice photo #5.
And random language barrier moment of the day: 
"Antonio was yelling at the skaters, 
'Please, por favor, be very careful 
with the positions!' [po-zee-see-owns]
But it really sounded like he was saying, 
'Be very careful with the china you assholes!' "

And thus we've come to the end of another exciting installment of....

Awwwwww. :)
(Uncapped versions available here and here.)

Many, many thanks to Machiko 
and especially Super Managtress Tara

Big smile over here. Really, really big smile. That happens regularly while reading the blog and looking at all the pictures. I catch myself grinning from ear to ear. LOL.

Thanks for the Friday picspam whenever it already happened or will happen soon.

Awe-mazing Johnny! Weatherman is predicting over 100 here today. Time to look at more Johnny Weir skating photos/video.

That sushi makes me hungry.

Tara and Johnny looking like they are having fun, if a bit under the jet lag weather.

Thanks for the posting.

My nickname for Johnny would be Muse.

There are nine muses named in ancient Greece mythology:

There needs to be another one for skating.
