On Wednesday evening, I was walking through the family room with my attention elsewhere when I caught my toe on the leg of the ottoman. The pain was unbelievable and I figured I had broken it. Ice and elevation helped a bit, but by the next morning I was only able to wear flip-flops (Ralph … Continue reading So after I Kicked the Ottoman…
Arrived back home from vacation late this afternoon. Good to be home, but sorry it's over. After my previous post, the winds changed direction and the smoke blew away. (While the area near the Princeton fire is still under evacuation order, today's reports showed the fire to be 35% contained.) A few of my more memorable activities … Continue reading More Vacation, Books, Wine, Richarding, etc.
With my family's permission, I co-opted the first two evenings of vacation viewing for Castlevania on Netflix. That wasn't too difficult since they all play video games, and my husband is a particular fan of vampire movies and certain animated shows. I am happy to report that we all enjoyed the show! We arrived in Osoyoos … Continue reading Castlevania and a Smoky Vacation
It's really amazing to me that I haven't seen Richard Armitage on a movie screen since The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was out in 2014. But what a great experience it was on the weekend to see The Crucible larger than life and to even meet up with a fellow fan! My older son … Continue reading Theatre at the Movies: The Crucible
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.

I've often looked at some of the discussions around older posts about RA's work and wished I had been reading at the time to participate. This challenge has been enjoyable for the opportunity to present some of … Continue reading RA Challenge – (Final) Week 5
Last week's questions in Guylty's Richard Armitage fandom challenge were a bit tough, what with topics of love/hate, shipping and obsession! This week's are pretty revealing too, though! And lead me to spend way too long looking at photos! Here are my answers to questions #22 to #26: #22 The Character I'd Want as a Drinking Buddy: Can … Continue reading RA Challenge – Week 4
I was browsing through WordPress today and found the site of an Austen-style writer, J. Dawn King. King is a fellow Armitage fan and has recently been in contact with his representatives to explore having Armitage narrate her latest book, told from Mr. Darcy's point of view. As she said in the comments in her April … Continue reading Could This Be Richard Armitage’s Next Audiobook?
I like to tell myself that the reason I'm not wearing my Fitbit and trying to up my level of physical activity is because of the way the bracelet looks. A bit like I've been let out of prison and this is the monitoring bracelet, right? So, I decided to invest in a more blingy … Continue reading Bling for Fitness and Fangirling
