**CAUTION: FANGIRL ANGST AHEAD!!** I was distracted all day Tuesday, thinking about those pictures of Richard Armitage at last night's charity event, the Golden Heart Awards, in New York City. Guylty (with some sourcing from Kate) posted the pictures yesterday and I've posted them again below -- plus an additional picture from the event. While spending … Continue reading Another Charity Pic and Fangirl Angst
This morning, I was lazing around in bed. I should have been getting up and dragging my son out of bed too, because we both had work we should be getting on with. Rather than getting on with it, I decided to continue listening to Richard Armitage reading Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, picking it up again at … Continue reading Richard Spoke to Me
As you may remember, I was very disappointed that scheduled events on the home front prevented me from flying to Toronto to see My Zoe, but I did get to see The Lodge on Friday, at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF). (Thanks, Serv, for letting me know it would be playing here!) The film was scheduled … Continue reading The Lodge
I walked two blocks up the hill from my house and took these pictures of the colourful changing sunset on Sunday. My younger son said, "Yeah, they're nice, but I see it from my window every night." Jaded. An artist I've been listening to lately is Eva Cassidy, who died from melanoma in 1996, at … Continue reading Because They’re Beautiful
When is watching a movie like slipping into a warm bath? When you see familiar characters brought to life once more. Yes, I admit it... I have at least one guilty pleasure. I had resisted for years, but one day, I found myself watching Downton Abbey just to see what all the fuss was about. And … Continue reading Like Slipping into a Warm Bath
So apparently this is my 200th post! At my current rate of posting, though, it would take me more than 8 years to reach 300! Probably I should post more. Be that as it may, I was really productive today! Inspired by Guylty's clean-up (and the fear of next week's visitors seeing how we really live), … Continue reading My 200th Post Is Cleaning Up!
Not only did my family and I go on vacation, but there was a little stowaway in my bag! None other than the (in)famous Trevor Belmont (a.k.a. Richard Armitage's character in Castlevania). He set himself to guarding the fruit after our initial grocery run. But he soon decided that his awesomeness would look better with … Continue reading Trevor Belmont at the Beach
Another man has caught my eyes (and my ears) in a little secondary crush. Same age, same nape curls, same changeable blue eyes, same fondness for stretched out T-shirts. How to tell Richard... how to tell him without hurting his feelings... There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved But that doesn't mean … Continue reading Cheating on Armitage?
Something about the profile, maybe? And maybe a bit about a certain style of jacket? Regardless of the handsomeness factor, I always try to see at least one play each season at the outdoor Bard on the Beach festival. (I posted about the production of Macbeth I saw last season here.) In addition to Shakespeare in Love, … Continue reading Hmm. Why Do I Want to See This Play?
Have you tried Photo Lab? No, this is not an ad, but someone mentioned this free app and now I have all these ridiculous Richard creations saved on my phone! Well, there is really nothing creative on my part, as you choose a pre-created background or effect and then combine it with an image and … Continue reading How I Waste What Little Downtime I Have
