On the topic of RA and sex(y)…

Men&Women

Now you know why we go for RA, he’s simply the strongest:

Hope this puts a smile on your face

Let’s talk about sex, Mr. Armitage

The Great Sperm Race

A wonderful 2009 documentary narrated by Richard Armitage for Channel 4

It charters the journey from conception to birth.

What I really liked about it (apart from the obvious) was the fact that sperm cells were scaled up to human size and are played by real people. This makes the experience quite dramatic. I dare you not to feel sorry for those sperm cells, which are destined to die a horrific death. We see the sperm and the egg scaled up by 34000 times and we learn about the obstacles and challenges the sperm overcome to reach the egg.

Not unlike a talented handsome actor getting his big break 😉

On a personal note, I must admit I did giggle like a  little girl every time RA mentioned a “naughty” body part and I dare you not to do the same. It’s hard not to blush 🙂

What more can an RA admirer want?

Here is part 1

You can find the other 7 parts on youtube 🙂

Richard’s Ordeal

Richard Armitage plays Philip Durrant in an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, “Ordeal by Innocence”.

This should have been the perfect merger of my two loves. I have been a huge Agatha Christie fan for years and have read and reread all her books. I must admit I also appreciate the BBC Miss Marple adaptations. As with many books and characters adapted for TV, the character of Philip Durrant has been changed. An officer in the Royal Air Force who fought in the Second World War, he contracts polio and is confined to a wheelchair, therefore becoming dependant on his wife and her family.

What I find funny is that Philip’s wife Mary is played by the singer Lisa Stansfield. Because, you know, she’s been around the world but she, she can’t find her baby… and ended up pushing RA around. Lucky Lisa.

 In the Chorion/ITV press pack for Miss Marple, series 3 (source Richard Armitage Online) he insists on a link between his family and Agatha Christie:

 “My mum used to play in Agatha Christie’s garden – she used to live in Wallingford as a child and that’s where Christie had a house,” he said. “My mum told me that she used to climb over the garden wall and play in her  garden. I’ve always got this image of my mum creeping up to the house and pressing her nose against the window and watching  Agatha Christie at her typewriter. Complete fabrication in my head  probably!”

I’m not going to do a What I Like list, that would take too long.

What I didn’t like was the fact that RA plays a supporting role. Do I ask too much to request RA’s character turns out to be the murderer?

Imagine that reveal.

 Granted, with have those moments of drunkenness and seduction, but it left me wanting more. As always, I liked seeing RA in a tux- do I ask too much to request RA to wear it everyday… nevermind…
