Super Mega Sun Valley Picspam!

Johnny at practice 
in Sun Valley, Idaho, on Saturday.

Aaaaand just when you thought you couldn't possibly handle any more photos of sun-drenched Johnny on the sparkling Sun Valley outdoor ice rink, here are—wait. Seriously? You couldn't handle more? We barely got started yesterday. Are you new?

Well, that's OK. Just sit with your head between your knees for a few minutes to ease the dizziness and hyperventilating... take a swig of your venti chai... repeat the pledge: "Of course we have more photos. Endless, endless photos. We've got to have something to do until Be Good Johnny Weir Season 2 premieres in OMG just 40 days from now. Don't you know that? Are you stupid?"... deep cleansing breath...


Any excuse to use this gif. Any excuse at all.



OK, while you're getting a grip there, we have an action item. This little poll popped up on Ice Network yesterday:


And while of course the correct answer is (b) (yes, we're looking at it as a quiz now, although choosing (b) prompted a whole "jinx" discussion among fans but we still came to the conclusion that putting the positive vibe out there outweighed the jinx factor #FSfanlogic), I found myself in agreement with Brian Podgurski, who felt that two of the three choices came off as rather negative. My dear friend Jenn Kittler gently explained to me that it's not really a poll if all the choices are "win all the things," but then immediately after she said that my mind wandered away to Johnny-Wins-All-The-Things Land so IDK what else she said but I fixed the poll for everybody while I was there:





OK! How are you doing there? Ready for today's serving of Johnny on ice?

Good! Enjoy. Then please go cast your vote if the poll is still up.

I'll just be over here preparing more crack pics if you need me....

Please click any photo twice for larger view.



IDK.

One more bonus: Photo tweeted by Victor yesterday. 
First he told us: "At the rink today, get to watch 
@JohnnyGWeir train! Good start to the week!!" 
Then he followed with the photo and this note
"...and per the requests, a pic... 
You all have no idea what you are in store for 
when competition starts. #bestjohnny" 
OMG. Cannot. Wait.

I'm agonizing over how to answer your poll. I'm having such a hard time deciding which answer to select. Maybe you should offer another option: "All of the above."

Thank you for the beautiful pics! We all had so much fun in Sun Valley. Johnny was gracious & kind with all of us, as usual. His training shows in his renewed strength & ease on the ice.

I agree with Victor, Binx. You are the best, most wonderful blogger!

Johnny is very sure-footed. He only skates poorly when he is injured or very very ill. When he is injured or quite ill, he still skates amazingly well (wearing a very glassy masked look on his face).

Binky, if they gave medals for blogging, you would nail the gold medal. You would put the pedal to treadle for the medal.

The little picture Johnny had at the end of his tweet about Tyoma getting neutered... those never show for me in twitter.

Does anyone know how I view them?

Binky and the Misfit Mimes said...

@Rosebee: You can make them viewable at this site:

http://www.iemoji.com/

Copy and paste his tweet into the box, and it will show you the icons he used. :)

(In the Tyoma tweet, the icons at the end are two soccer balls. LOL.)
