TC+1 – Please Answer My Poll

giggles of girlish glee – can’t wait for the next RA event/movie/misc. this is better than a secret handshake 🙂

Day 1 of the new era. After checking last night’s SD outfit and replying to all blog comments I was at a serious loose end.

Yeah, when I am posting sweet nothings on Twitter it is really serious…

To distract myself from the heartache (…), I started researching button badge makers. And then I started designing buttons. Because we really need some discreet way of recognising each other in the future. Really, all this clandestine walking past each other while being sure that we have spotted a fellow sufferer of Armitagitis… Silly. I mean, *I* have a brilliant bag with Robert Hermitage’s face plastered all over it, so *you* might spot me. But how can *I* spot you? Save the silly beard idea (really, Richard, that’s a no-go. I don’t even like a beard on you, never mind…

Speaking for himself, or: Why I like Richard Armitage tweeting

Me + Richard Armitage

BvylQr4IQAAy_bK.jpg_largeIt’s not just that Richard Armitage is funny (although in my opinion he is — my opinion of meat beards here or there, not every joke needs to tickle my fancy), nor that it marks a real career caesura in terms of his publicity (although I think it does, from my long term perspective much more so than the Hobbit: TDOS 2013 publicity blitz did — to me the real break was 2012), nor that he’s used it to promote charitable endeavors. I like all of those things. We’ve always known he was funny. Look at those early messages to fans if you don’t believe me — the “serious Richard” trope which was created in the post-North & South publicity and which many fans jumped on wholeheartedly but in my opinion, mistakenly, and the “precious Richard” trope that predominated among many fans, notwithstanding.

RA Today ~ August 22, 2014

Misc

There have been dozens, if not hundreds of beautiful edits, pic sets and gif sets today.  It’s been a little overwhelming and with some personal business to take care of today, I haven’t been able to pull them all in.  Apologies for that.    Also, the edits I had planned for today will wait until things cool down a bit 😉   This is a longer than usual post so I’m giving the ‘read more’ a try.

Happy Armitage-Day with a List of Photo Shoots

Guylty is my hero in so many ways. This is the most phenomenal post!

Guylty Pleasure

What do you give somebody who has everything? You don’t give them a tangible present at all. You do something in their honour, possibly. Or you create something for them, a poem, a painting, a birthday cake? Sometimes it is enough to let people know that we are thinking of them on their special day. And thus I have not written a birthday card to Richard Armitage. I am slightly cynical in that I believe there is not much point in writing to him. Or if I write, then I’d be writing for myself, really, and not for him, so I might as well do that here, on the blog that is dedicated to him but really is much more about and for his fans than about and for him. I think he’ll survive my growing lack of allegiance *ggg*.

When I do write about Richard Armitage, I like to…
