Thorin is getting a bit frisky for Valentine’s Week

Thorin 8

I’m (unfortunately for you…) sticking with the theme of Valentine’s Week.

Here are some pick-up lines that you may want to use if you’re on the pull at a Hobbit convention (at your own risk).

It’s at moments like this, when I spend my free time making Tolkien mythology sound dirty that I question my choices in life…

thorin 6I bet you could do MUCH better, so hit me with your most painful Thorin pick-up lines 😉

Well, I guess it’s Valentine’s Week

smelly old sock

I find it a bit odd that people (and by that I mean the media) seem to be using the term “valentine ‘s week”.

Most men people I’ve spoken to seem to ignore this occasion entirely, describing it as “American” and “consumer”, another excuse to have to spend money.

I don’t agree with that assessment, after all you don’t have to spend a penny to express your feelings for someone and it doesn’t have to be dodgy plush toys and heart galore.

This year I’m taking part in the Tumblr Armitage Army Valentine’s Gift Exchange  (can’t wait for the postman to come with something other than a bill or stuff I bought on ebay…) and Guylty’s RAworld Secret Valentine.

I’ve already finished my post/gift for the lucky/unlucky (depending on how you look at it) recipient and I’ve promised myself that I’ll send it to Guylty long before the deadline.

That’s my Valentine gift to her 😉

Anyway, nothing says the season of love, be it a day or a week, than some beyond creepy vintage Valentine’s Day cards:

Have I creeped you out enough?

Have a good errr…. Valentine’s Week…

Five Days of New Year’s Resolutions (before it all fizzles out…)

joke 4

So much has been said about changes in the past few weeks, but I think it’s an inevitable part of life and our little RA community of friends is no different.

I’ve made some resolutions for blogging and being part of the Armitage world and have been working hard to strike while the iron is hot (very much like Thorin banging on that sword only with less impressive muscles).

I’ve often spoken about doing my bit to get help the flow of information.

We had a grand old chin-wag this summer brainstorming different ways to give bloggers their dues, to show them our support and love.

joke 1

As most New Year’s resolutions are broken and forgotten after just 5 days, I’ve decided to use that time wisely.

I started out by updating the blogroll on the right which features RA-related blogs.

I think I’ve done a good enough job, but I can already see one or two inactive links.

If there’s a blog I’ve omitted please leave the link in comments and I will update.

For logistic reasons this list does not feature Tumblr blogs.

joke 2

There’s one BlogSpot/Blogger feature that WordPress doesn’t posses and that is a blogroll that indicated when new posts pop up.

This is what it looks like:

Blogspot blogroll

That’s why I have created iwanttobeapinup.BlogSpot.com for the sole purpose of taking advantage of this snazzy feature.

This way I (and, if you bookmark this page, you!) can stay on top of all the RA goodies that are posted (yup, I’m feelin’ like a boss…)

joke 3

I won’t be posting there, but you are more than welcome to use the list as a cheat-sheet.

Again, if I have omitted any RA/semi-RA blogger please let me know.

The next big step is this Saturday so I hope you’ll be back to see what I’ve been up to 🙂

joke 5

I’m thinking an Arty Farty Friday tomorrow?

I’ve been Naughty this year (but Richard made me do it!)

If Santa asks whether I’ve been naughty or nice this year I need to lie through my teeth if I’m to get anything this Christmas.

If I was one of Santa’s reindeer I’d be Rude-olph!

I hope the jolly man will understand, especially that we’re kin of sorts, he is after all North Polish!

My line of defence is that most naughty coal-worthy behaviour has been inspired by my fangirling of Richard and he is more than welcome to submit any form of punishment he sees fit!

(see what I mean? one mention of the man and it’s just pure filth…)

Anyway, let’s celebrate the season of Ho! Ho! Ho! by a round of Nasty Santa, Armitage style:

I have a rubbish chute, will that do?

Be warned, I’m a loud carol singer… never mind…

Yeah?

So what are you gonna do about that???

That last one makes me feel like I’m between a rock and a hard place…

And, if anyone had ANY doubt…

Richard Armitage 4

He means his nose after a glass of sherry I hope.

Last but not least, for my friend Serv bravely battling the snow:

A Very Merry! Dear Armitage Friends 🙂

It’s not all a Barrel of Laughs for Thorin

I dare not write and schedule a post for the next few days in fear that tomorrow’s fan event will be loaded with delicious goodies and will spark new posts that conflict with what I’ve already had planned.

In the meantime, as we count down the hours, pray for extra strength internet connection and smooth streaming, I turned my attention back to The Hobbit AUJ.

Yesterday I cracked an obtained a copy of the movie (in that Arrrr Captain! way, if you catch my drift), all 2,5 GB of it and watched it for the first time since January.

Although the extended version is out on November 11th, I just couldn’t help myself and needed something to tide me over.

I was also thinking how ironic it is for an actor who is afraid of water to always have to be drenched/dipped/drowned while playing a part.

He’s definitely been thrown in at the deep end more than once, but he’s been good about diving right into a part and has made waves with all of the parts he’s committed to.

I was thinking of making things a tad better for poor Thorin who no doubt did not find a particular scene a barren of laughs, so a few ideas were floating through my mind and this is what I came up with:

Thorin dwarf barrel swimming

Just look at our water baby, all snug, comfy and protected in full Thorin get up!

Better, right?

I’ll dress you up in my love Richard, and other Halloween costume ideas!

I’m continuing Halloween Week here at IWantToBeAPinUp, and the last post is scheduled for tomorrow.

Today I though I’d give Richard a hand and suggest some Halloween costume ideas, just in case he’s heading our for a party tomorrow (and I’m not even going to moan that he’s not taking me with him…).

First up, a Halloween classic:

Richard Armitage Halloween dracula

Let me just go on the record as stating that Richard can suck on my neck any time, and it doesn’t actually only have to be the neck for that matter…

If Halloween terrors are not your thing, here is a nod towards The Vicar of Dibley.

I though Richard could go dressed as the Dibley Easter Bunny.

*avoiding filthy “Hey, that’s a big carrot you got there Bunny Richard” jokes*

How about a mind mess: the guy who plays Thorin dressing up as Thorin?

Better than the original costume, me thinks…

Last but not least, if this can’t be Richard’s Halloween costume, can it at least be his jammies?

Howdy to you partner!

*again, I shall refrain from any Woody jokes, but those pants leave little to the imagination…*

Happy Halloween!

The Picture of Richard Armitage or The Secret of RA Youth

Today marks the start of RA Halloween Week (OK, technically it’s Halloween 4 days, but that doesn’t have the same ring to it…).

I’ll be serving up the usual mayhem and madness, but I’ll also be trying out some new things like a ficlet or two, so I hope you’ll have yourself a spooky week 4 days.

It’s also the only time when the following image makes any sense:

Richard Armitage Halloween See you soon

Richard just looks better with age, there’s no denying it, but what’s the man’s secret?

Maybe a portrait hidden somewhere in his (alleged) NY abode?

One that shows all of his deepest darkest secrets that he wants to keep away from the prying eyes of his fans (sleepless nights partying, one too many shots of Russian vodka, a love of chocolate ice-cream…).

Thornton portrait 2

So now you know, but don’t mention it to Richard, he’s very touchy on the subject 😉

What other beauty tips does RA use to keep us fangirls salivating yearning?

With Richard you’re always in capable hands…

I had college the past 2 days, so I haven’t really prepared a post for today, plus I’m still feeling crafty and have a few RA/Thorin related projects I want to start, so I’ll just leave you with the following image and duck for cover as I’m a very naught girl 😉

Hands down, the sexiest man around…

Richard’s still running… And there’s another batch of crazy…

I’m continuing the Run Richard! project.

We’ve has some great ideas so far, you can check out the original post HERE and the first batch HERE.

I’ll start of with Joanna’s idea which she sums up by saying:

 “ja przyczepiłabym mu łyżwy ;)

Translation (-ish): stick some skates on the man!

I think someone feels winter is coming…

And if Richard feels a tad frozen over, I can think of at least a handful of ways I could warm him up 😉

On the topic of cold, Richardiana mentioned that:

“I’d really like to see him running towards something with such enthusiasm, even if it’s only a big bucket of chocolate ice-cream.”

How about an Ice Cream (Girl) Sundae?

Richard Armitage chocolate ice cream

Man, is this the wrong image to be fiddling with when you’re trying to watch what you eat!

Talking about forbidden fruit, Luciana shared the opinion of many RA fans when she said that:

“I imagine him running away from the producers of Fifty Shades of Grey… ;-)

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank her to making me have to google “s&m dungeons” and such.

 What is seen cannot be unseen and some things are not going to get erased that quickly…

Richard Armitage Fifty Shades of Grey audition

I think he’s running the right way, right?

I’m no kink specialist, but I think I’d be afraid to spank Richard.

What if I damage that lovely bum!?!

Last but not least, Perry mentioned that running Richard is:

” grace on wings”

Time to channel some Hermes (the god, not the handbags), me thinks!

Richard Armitage Roman god Hermes

I have it on good authority (meaning the internet…) that Hermes was a messenger who was smart and playful.

He’d have to have one hell of a sense of humour to wear those kick-ass sandals!

I’ve had a great time fiddling with Richard, even if it was merely his image!

Thanks so much to all of those who have contributed, as always it’s the readers that make silly projects like these fun 🙂

Run Richard! Reader’s Ideas!

Thanks so much for all your ideas as to why Richard is flexing his thigh muscles and legging it!

I’m still collecting new ideas so feel free to drop them in comments.

Here are some of your suggestions from yesterday 🙂

First up, i.f. suggested that Richard channels some classic Hollywood charm.

Her brief was:

“Isn’t there a biplane chasing after him? I would love to see Mr. A. in a remake of North by Northwest.”

Wouldn’t we all love to see Richard running across fields dodging planes!

Here’s a poster from this gripping thriller:

Next up, Guylty is still not ready to put the cat/dog dispute to bed (although I think she’s about ready to put Richard between the sheets…), so she said:

“how about a cat behind him and a dog with open arms in front???”

I thought maybe we could push that idea a little further.

My sincerest apologies to those suffereing from Ailurophobia (an acute fear of cats).

Guylty made me do it, so you guys sleep tight tonight 😉

Beware of the cats Richard Armitage_edytowany-1

Perry suggested that Richard shouldn’t be running away from something.

“You can have him running towards your pin-up girl – I can’t see him running towards the empire state building..”

How about Richard running towards a sexy Pin Up standing (-ish) by the Empire?

Richard Armitage flowers pin up

All I can say is that is one lucky Pin Up Girl and I bet she’s happy she put on her good undies 😉

Kitty chose a different route:

“Upon his early arrival to the airport, he discovers that one-forty-three flight was really elven-thirty-four (dyslexia strikes again) and he must now make a mad dash for his gate.”

I bet being late for planes is something Richard is probably accustomed to.

Heck, maybe that’s where he gets those burly thigh muscles!

That’s one suitcase I wouldn’t mind rummaging through…Richard Armitage running through airport1

Will he make it?

I hope so, especially that he clearly has nothing to declare!

I do however declare that Richard is one hot piece of a…. anyway, moving swiftly along…

Last up for today Arkenstone suggested I:

“I see him running away from just female hands and holding screenplays (and maybe a few high heeled feet) at the bottom that have all the names of movies we think he should be in…Poldark, 50 shades of Grey, that Potato one, some silly ones…”

This was a tough one.

I couldn’t get Richard to hold anything and trying to stick books into hands just didn’t work.

I though that maybe I’ll approach this idea in another way.

Richard is running towards Hollywood, but there’s someone always grabbing at him and wanting something.

The hands are beyond creepy though, but at least the camera is aiming in the right direction 😉

Richard Armitage Hollywood

That’s all I have for today, but I hope to be back tomorrow with more suggestions as to why Richard is running.

Keep those ideas coming 🙂
