Yes, Johnny arrived safely in China early this morning, after a lengthy flight delay out of New Jersey that I’m sure added just the right touch of arghhhhhhh to his already slightly torturous 12-hour flight across half the world, although said delay also seems like just the sort of thing to put his faithful traveling companion, Jet Lag, in a really bubbly mood, so yay for that.

Kayso Hollywood Game Night was the kind of awesome that reminds me all over again why I loved Be Good Johnny Weir so much, and why the world needs a lot more Johnny on TV. (Or in the movies. Or on a 24-hour webcam that follows him everywhere. Whatever. I’m not picky.)

Kayso FINALLY we gave Johnny his birthday gifts yesterday! Yes, his birthday was two weeks ago, but of course he was in Japan for his actual birthday, so we decided to wait until he came home (briefly) to have everything delivered since his birthday is worth celebrating all month long anyway, and thus our gifts became his mid-month party in between his Japanese fans showering him with love at the beginning of the month and his Chinese fans doing so at the end.

Flower Balls of Steel

Johnny stars in To Russia With Love
a documentary from Robert Redford’s Sundance Productions 
that examines the lives of LGBT athletes. A portion of the documentary 
was filmed secretly at the Sochi Olympics, amidst Russia’s strict anti-gay 
propaganda laws, while Johnny was being hailed as the breakout star 
of the Games for his work as a figure skating commentator for NBC. 
The film, for which Johnny also is an executive producer
will premiere Wednesday, October 22, 8 pm ET on EPIX.

More details below!

So I had hoped to post this hours ago but this has been one of those days when odd little things keep popping up and getting in my way, like some kind of bizarre Whack-A-Mole game that I’m forced to play though I don’t even want to and the game keeps stopping and starting, sort of freezing up randomly like my Internet connection, which is another whole source of wanting to beat things with a mallet until they stop moving, but anyway I also lost a fair amount of time because Johnny keeps posting stuff to Instagram that causes me to freeze up in wonder every time I go look and if for some unfathomable reason you’re still not following him there OMG DO IT NOW because this is just a sampling from today:
