Random Friday Roundup

Yet more Johnny on the GLAAD red carpet.

Yeah, this is just a mish-mash of all kinds of random odds and ends left over from whatever and thrown on here with an enormous Cinderella-esque sigh, a slapdash scrapbook with which we can disconsolately comfort ourselves in a vain attempt to distract us from the fact that we will NOT be dressing ourselves in our very finest royal garments and veritable mountains of jewelry to attend the Imperial Court of New York's Night of a Thousand Gowns tomorrow evening, at which Johnny will be reigning as Honorary Chairperson. Here's just a peek at the fabulousness that ensued at this event last year:




Fortunately other people whose lives aren't so much the-pumpkin-after-the-clock-struck-midnight will be at this event, including once again the ever-fabulous NealB in NYC, who was kind enough to mention via Twitter yesterday: "I will most likely be interviewing Johnny and Victor at A Night of a 1,000 Gowns this Sat. Any questions?" So if you have a question for the happy husbands, please tweet it to @NealBinNYC, and he'll do his best to get you an answer, depending on time constraints and whether or not people are drinking out of each other's shoes by the time interviews happen. Although judging by Getty Images, it looks like there's a red carpet at this event, so hopefully media people will have a shot at grabbing some quotes before everyone is schnookered and trying on each other's tiaras.... (BRB designing some tiny but supremely glittery gowns for the singing mice who are finishing the dishes for me....)



More from GLAAD!

Here's another red carpet shot 
of Victor and Johnny...


...plus this bit of awesomeness: they made the news in China!

"You guys are on our mainstream media, again!" 
I love that they are the dazzlingly happy couple 
at the forefront of marriage equality 
around the world right now.



Vote for Johnny!

More from the international scene: Johnny has been added to the "Best Sportsmen" site in Russia, where you can vote for him once a day as your favorite sports figure! (Thanks to @ZebraZebra95 for tweeting the link.) You do have to register first before you can vote, but it wasn't too complicated to navigate and it'll give you something else to do while you're waiting, wrapped in elaborately woven self-pity, for NOATG images to start pouring in...



A Gathering of Gifs

So there was this plaintive tweet yesterday: "There is a severe lack of Johnny Weir gifs on tumblr and it makes me sad," which linked to a Tumblr post of just three Johnny gifs. Which was clearly a crisis of epic proportions, prompting this response, which in turn inspired me to dig through my gif archives and offer a few or 20 just to be helpful:


IDEK who made this or where it came from 
or why I have it or why I've never posted it until now, 
but here it is and it cracks me up every time I look at it.



Also love this. From the green room at... 
Joy Behar? I think?


And still loooooove this.
See bunches more here.



Weekend Pupdate!

Photo tweeted by Victor's lovely cousin, 
@PrncessJax, late last night: 
"Making sure to bring #Tема wherever we go!!! 
@JohnnyGWeir @Vitya_Zvesda are such good parents!!" 
OMG THAT LITTLE FACE.

She also tweeted a link to an explanation 
of this traditional Japanese baby ceremony: 
"The ceremony called Okuizome is performed 
in hopes that the child would never have to worry about food. 
The Okuizome usually occurs 100 days after birth
when the child starts to eat baby food.  
The baby only pretends to eat the food in this ceremony."


Papa and Puppy.
