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?

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…

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!

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 🙂

Richard Auditions for Fifty Shades of Grey (but not really)

 

I have thought about Richard Armitage in the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey.

I’m going to let my imagination get the best of me.

Imagine Richard Armitage playing the complex Mr. Grey.

He realizes that a certain amount of spanking will be required of him if he wants to convincingly play the part.

He then learns a hard lesson that spanking someones behind makes your hand hurt just as much…

 OUCH!

Fifty Shades of Hotness Epidemic

You just know you’ve encountered a thrilling book if days later you’re still thinking about it.

I wrote about Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James in a previous post.

With all my Oooing! and Ahhhing!, my sis decided to give it a go.

She’s not one to be over enthusiastic for no reason, but I have to say, She too is hooked 🙂

As you may know, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the film adaptation and I have been wondering who would be appropriate to play the part of the dashing Christian Grey.

My first and most obvious choice would be Mr Richard Armitage.

He ticks all the boxes- sexy, mysterious, daring, a body to die for.

He definitely has that smouldering something needed for the part.

I can imagine how great he would look as the stern and powerful Grey.

Here we have a sample of the S&M in reversal 😉

The problem is, Mr. Grey is described as a sexy 27-year-old.

As much as I wouldn’t mind RA playing a character who  likes it freaky (I REALLY wouldn’t), I’m not sure that doing it with a 22-year-old virgin is something I’d be ready for.

Here are some other suggestions:

Ian Somerhalder plays a mean intense vampire in Vampire Diaries, but I’m not sure if he has the dashing good looks of

 Mr.Grey

 

Another vampire up for consideration is Alexander Skarsgard. He definitely is primal, wild and sexy in True Blood, but is he also Christian?

In my opinion, they will go for an unknown to play the part.

I’m looking forward to seeing this story on the big screen (blush…)

Fifty Shades of Blushing Red

As I’m enjoying my looooong May weekend (can I categorise 9 days as a weekend?), I decided to treat myself to a book that wasn’t connected to fashion, my thesis paper or looming end of year exams.

I don’t really know fanfic, I’ve read the odd story here and there, usually written my fellow RA bloggers ( Hello Ladies!).

I decided to take a peek at Fifty Shades Of Grey by EL James as it’s been causing quite a stir.

What was supposed to be a few hours of relaxing read turned into a 2 day reading marathon.

I was hooked!

I’m not going to write a review of the book, many others online have done it very well.

I’d just like to skim over the issues that came to my mind when reading.

You may have heard that the books have a very strong S&M flavour.

This is true, but before you dismiss it, I think you should give it a try.

I’m not really one for whips, handcuffs and plugs that don’t exactly go in the drain or socket (I’ll let you guess where these go…), but the story really is captivating.

Does it get ridiculous at times?

Sure!

Some moments are hot, some are…well…not so much. At times it get a bit predictable.

I never though I would say this, but found myself wishing that instead of the pages upon pages of sex scenes, we’d get more insight into the characters.

And these I find quite fascinating.

I had heard that the story had started out as a Twilight fanfic.

As much as I do love the Twilights books and films (don’t judge me!), I really didn’t see Bella or Edward in the characters of Christian and Ana.

I really enjoyed the complexities of Mr. Christian Grey and couldn’t wait for his story to unfold.

I found him to be manipulative, mean and controlling.

But he’s also sexy, daring and sensitive.

I think it’s important to remember that the sex is (mostly) a medium to convey an array of emotions and issues that have little to do with the bedroom… or playroom…

So if you’re looking for some escapism and need to let your mind get away from the here and now, I definitely recommend this trilogy.

Is it the best book you’ll ever read?

No.

It won’t expand your vocabulary I was so sick and tired of the Oh my! Enough with that already!

It just gets really silly at times and it’s quite predictable.

But there are just days when indulging your inner goddess is what you deserve, and this will do it!

And if I’m wrong and you don’t like it, you can always spank me 😉
