A new-to-me Richard Armitage character has just joined the ranks of my all-time favourites. And this character is not seen, but only heard! In the words of his boast asserting his warrior status, he is: Uhtred of Bebbanburg... The man who killed Ubba Lothbrokson by the sea... The man who spilled Svein of the White … Continue reading Rich’s of the Past: The Lords of the North Audiobook
I know many of you are thinking about Richard Armitage's birthday coming up on August 22. In my household, however, we are celebrating two other birthday's this week! My husband's birthday was this weekend and, at his request, I cooked chili for dinner and we finished off with his favourite dessert, vanilla ice cream with … Continue reading August Birthdays
While driving to and from work and wanting to distract myself from the news on the radio, I decided that my ears were in need of a Richard Armitage fix. Somehow the British male voice that I'd selected for Siri on my iPhone just didn't do it! So, not wanting to re-listen to the Heyer … Continue reading Rich’s of the Past: Robin Hood Audiobooks

In fact, there are actually three stories going on at once! I became a fan of Alan Cumming through his role as … Continue reading Not My Father’s Son

However, due to recent events, I had to overcome my fear in order to go to the show. On February 1, Silverman ill-advisedly reacted to the news from Washington with … Continue reading Seeing Sarah Silverman
The last book I read in 2016 was Scrappy Little Nobody, Anna Kendrick's funny and well-told collection of anecdotes from her life so far. It was so much fun that I finished it during the holidays in just over 24 hours! It's also available as an audiobook, so I may just buy it when I finish re-listening to Sylvester. (If … Continue reading Scrappy Little Nobody
*** SPOILERS *** Being a purist at heart, I was reluctant to buy the audiobook of Romeo and Juliet: A Novel. After hearing some clips, though, I just couldn't resist a chance to lose myself in the voice of Richard Armitage for 11 hours! Loved the voice -- was not as fond of the new story. Romeo and … Continue reading Romeo and Juliet: The Audiobook
