    from Tanya

    Q: What's up with the Queen-for-a-day attitude. Why're you in everybody face?

    A: I don't think I have an attitude problem. I just know what I want in life. If I were in everyone's face, I would have had the pleasure of meeting you Tanya. Thanks.

    I love that!

    I'm glad he's so tough about his public image at least, because it sounds like he just got his heart broken.

    I´m very glad (and relieved) to hear that Weir used the services of a technical specialist. WOW, difficult to wait until the first video clips of his short programme and freeskate...

    Weir answers well even those unpleasant questions, LOL.

    It sounds to me like he is hurting, and is using the negative e-mails to "lash out" (at least, it struck me that he included more of them than usual, and I thought this might be an explanation) I"m glad he has sense enough not to use a rhinestone "crown of thorns", although the explosion if he did so would be hysterical (IMO)

    FYI, the two email addresses he posted are invalid...they don't exist. They gave false email addresses on the contact form so they could vent without actually being contacted directly...what losers!

    I found this out because I actually tried to warn them that they might be getting some mail because their addresses had been posted, and my mail was returned as "undeliverable" because the addresses do not exist!

    I love Johnny's skating but not always his off-ice persona, but guess what? He is who he is and I don't think he should have to apologize for that. I certainly can appreciate one person in the figure skating world who is who he is without excuse, even if I don't always agree with him. A lot of his public persona is media-generated...they can take a 30 min interview and splice it anyway they want, to acheive a certain outcome. Don't you wonder why every fluff piece and news article on Weir has the same theme(s)?

    Let's face it, he has personality. You may like it, you may not. But in the sometimes vanilla world of figure skating, I rather enjoy the spice.
