Enchanted

For this special St. Patrick’s Day edition of 
#ManCrushMonday, what could be better than 
a collection of Johnny picspam in random shades of green? 
Yes, you’re right: the correct answer is nothing. 
Nothing could be better. 
Here he is performing Born This Way
bathed in green spotlights, 
Artistry on Ice, Summer 2013. 



More gorgeous picspam below,
including all-new
exclusive photos from Sochi!



UPDATE!! Love this from The Daily Beast:
If you’ve been missing his voice in his weekly column 
for the Falls Church News Press, this gorgeous gallery 
with Johnny’s captions is heaven.



So I’ve been blogging here for four years now and it has come to my attention that I have never done a St. Patrick’s Day-themed post. Likely because St. Patrick’s Day has not really come to my attention much—my family is mostly German and I look weird in green—until now, living in the heart of Chicago, where we have not one but two St. Patrick’s Day parades just in case you might have forgotten that HEY IT’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY.

So given that we still breathlessly await exciting career news from Johnny’s trip to LA last week—a breathlessness further heightened by this ridiculously adorable video with which I already updated last Friday’s post but no one can stop watching it so here it is again:


Via the @TaraAndJohnny Instagram account on Friday. 
Can’t wait for more details!!

—today is the perfect opportunity to distract ourselves from Johnny by enjoying lots of Johnny. That’s what always works for me, anyway. 

And so here you go: new exclusive Johnny pics plus a few revisited fan favorites below, all in keeping with our theme. 

And this lovely thought as well:


St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time—
a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams 
into summer’s magic.

Ice Dance - Short Dance commentary.
Refresher: Johnny’s OOTD.

Screencap: the Dream Team live from Sochi!


With the unflappable and good-humored 
Terry Gannon to Tara’s left.
Terry made his first appearance in a 
 Tara & Johnny Instagram vid prior to this broadcast!




































What their on-camera segments 
looked like behind the scenes.


Break time!




Aaaaand they’re back.












Terry seems astonished by something, 
while Johnny and Tara are... less so.


Another quick break to stand up, 
stretch, and add a little shine-banishing 
powder for the camera...


...while preparing for one more round of short dance.

Don your green sunglasses. There's a throne at the end of the rainbow, with Johnny Weir crown prince of the Emerald City.
