But I glanced up from my screen long enough to notice that today is February 28, which, besides being the last day of the longest shortest month ever, is also the third blogoversary! Which is traditionally the "leather" anniversary, so here:

"If I Could Be Anyone in the World, I Would Be Johnny Weir"

Johnny accepts the first annual
"Johnny Weir WinterPride Award" 
on the ice at the Penns Landing Rink during 
Philadelphia's WinterPride celebration last Friday 
(yes, the award is actually named after him). 

More than 15 years ago, a young Pennsylvania boy laced up a pair of ice skates and taught himself how to glide among the remains of cornstalks on the frozen Amish-country fields behind his house.

On Friday—three national titles, two Olympics, and one World medal later—he returned home to be honored with the very first "Johnny Weir WinterPride Award," presented by the Office of the Mayor on behalf of the City of Philadelphia.

People are like stained-glass windows. 
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, 
but when the darkness sets in, 
their true beauty is revealed only if 
there is a light from within. 
— Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
