Kayso I've finally arrived at Friday in my own personal Week Of The Never-Ending April Fool's Day About Which I Can Only Say LOLWUT So Instead Let's Focus On Johnny News Which Includes The Following Important Developments:

Yet More Johnny On Our Tvs!

Reminder: Johnny is starring in the "Celebrities" episode of the new season of Chopped All-Stars! The season begins this Sunday, April 7; Johnny's episode airs in three weeks, on Sunday, April 28, 9 pm EDT / 8 pm CDT. They released a new photo gallery this week that included this pic:

And also new video, which includes the tiniest glimpse of Johnny at about 0:23. Any minute now they should be posting his "10 Things You Didn't Know..." Q and A here, so please keep an eye out for that, and get ready to set those DVRs again!

Johnny Remembers That He Has 
The World Is A Better Place Because Of It.

New video tweeted by Johnny: "In honor of 
the widely acknowledged 'Throwback Thursday,' 
here is my federation test skate last September in NYC. 
Still early in the season, my music was not edited 
completely, therefore there's a long pause in the middle 
of the performance. Enjoy this private performance!" 
Stunningly beautiful. 
There is simply no one else like him on the ice.

He also tweeted this vid from his official channel: 
"Silly moment in the car this eve. 
Love this so much! Video link.

(Yes, Johnny will be attending Figure Skating in Harlem's annual Skating With the Stars Gala this coming Monday, April 8—more info and tickets here!)

So as I was enjoying "Lipstick" for the eleventy-billionth time because that is one hypnotic earworm of a song, I decided to take a break from this never-ending week's equally never-ending manuscript to idly wade through our backlog of photos in hopes of throwing some picspam out there today, and I accidentally discovered a few snippets of random rehearsal video that I had totally forgotten we had.

And so I strung them all together while "Lipstick" took up residence in my head and frowned at the paint on the walls and ordered Chinese takeout while picking out new drapes because it's clearly not planning on leaving anytime soon, and so this happened.

But I never had a chance to blog until today, so here it is finally. The only way to close out this Mad Hatter of a week: Skaterpalooza Silliness plus Johnny plus Jedward.

Bonus pic!! Skating while clutching bonus iPhone. 
(Obviously this skill is now doubly important
because you never know when Jedward 
might tweet something...)

Looking forward to Johnny cooking for Chopped. Vote!!!

Ping is probably cowering and commiserating in the corner with Victor and Tyoma, wary of putting marks in Johnny's newly vacuumed carpet lines.

I hope that someday Johnny has a future role as Ms. Emma Pillsbury's visiting OCD nephew on Glee.
