Cooling Down in 2013

snowman  cool down hot dwarves

There have been plenty of those filthy Hobbitses (as Gollum would call them) and Dwarveses here lately, but then how often do you get to cheer your favorite actor on while he promotes one of the most important movies in his career?

2013 is upon us and I was thinking of making a list of my New Year’s Resolutions until I realised they’d be pretty much the same as last year.

Makes me think that perhaps these resolution don’t work too well or maybe don’t know how to work them.

I find myself in the same spot year after year, so maybe I do suffer from one of  the worst ailment known to mankind:

I keep doing the same things and expect different results!

The question is how the heck does this hamster get off the wheel.

How about some new ideas that could change things up?

This list makes sense:

How about just breathing and enjoying life?

What would life be like if we accessed our inner Pin Up and face each life with a smile (not to mention showing plenty of leg…).

Anyway, here are some beautiful ski bunnies to inspire us this winter.

I hope you have a wonderful hot/cool Sunday 🙂

What does a Hot Dwarf have in his pocket? And it’s not what you think…

Thank You for all your positive thoughts!
My Dad is better, we have a diagnosis and he has his sense of humour back (won’t go into detail  about when the hospital priest came visiting), which means he’s on the mend 🙂
I’ve had a funny sort of day today ferrying people to and from the hospital, running errands, as well as attempting the difficult task of changing my family’s habits by actually making breakfast and dinner and eating it together (a novel concept, sad to say).

I’m actually teaching my Mum to make a healthy dinner in 15 minutes and I can only hope (and dream) that she will actually continue this new food habit once my dad is back home.

At least for a month.

A week maybe? I hope.


This weird day also meant plenty of free time to surf on a computer that wouldn’t allow me to add pictures to my post.
I came across some videos that lifted my mood and me laugh out loud, both courtesy of Empire Magazine.
Firstly, do you know what how dwarves carry in their pocket?

If you’re anything like me, let me tell you the answer isn’t what you think, so get your dirty fangurling mind out of the gutter!
Here’s the answer:

Aidan Turner and a lighter?
I smell a smoker!

No, really, I’d love to smell that smoker (I’m crushing on Aidan Turner hard, can you tell or am I hiding it well?).
In oppose to Andy Serkis Richard Armitage doesn’t reveal his Claridge’s room number, much to the disappointment of women wanting to access their inner Ros Myers and doing a little breaking and entry.

May I also suggest that in future we don’t take Richard and Aidan’s word for it!

I volunteer to carefully examine the pockets for content, just to be thorough…

While we’re on the topic of ridiculously hot dwarves that heat up my Lonely Mountain (I really don’t know what that means but it’s been a weird kind of day, so I’ll take it where I can…), can you name all of them?

Let me try:

Thorin, Kili, Fili…eeerrr….Ori…Grumpy…eerrr…the fat ginger one…eeerrr…. Gollum….

OK, I give up and leave it to the pros:

These videos are adorable and it’s always the simple questions that yield the best answers!

So what do you have in your pocket RIGHT NOW?

Dare I hope someone has a Thorin or Kili action figure in their pockets 🙂

Look what I found at my local newsagent’s…

From the moment The Hobbit edition of Empire magazine  was out, they’ve been causing a storm.

I decided that if they have the Thorin edition at my local newsagent’s I’ll have to believe it’s fate and buy it, despite my apprehension to spend money on the dwarves before I see the film.

I figured that the universe would want me to have it and maybe I should stick the magazine in my handbag when I travel to London, on the off-chance I might get a cast autograph or *hyperventilating* Mr Armitage himself.

I strut to my local Empik store, knowing full well that they only have one copy left.

I walked over to the film section and found Empire.

Gollum is on the 3D lenticular cover!

I bet that’s not what you expected me to say, but that’s how it was!

I really was hoping the beautiful image of Thorin in blue would catch my eye and make me smile.

The bottom line is that as much as I’m very lucky in some areas of my life, I wouldn’t see myself as someone who’d bump into Richard Armitage at the airport, or be fortunate enough to get an autograph.

He won’t be filming on a set close to my home.

I won’t be attending theatre events or premieres where I could rub elbows with celebs.

Before you start pitying me, let me assure you of one thing.

There a level of freedom in knowing full well that amazing things like that will never happen.

I probably won’t get a pic of Armitage with his arm around my shoulders, nor will I ever get a chance to ask him to sign a photo.

Knowing this simple truth allows me to enjoy the things that are attainable, like meeting fellow Armitage fans and getting a buzz from seeing The Hobbit together with them.

I may never meet Richard Armitage, but I’ll experience something just as exciting, meaning I’ll be sharing my admiration for my favorite actor with other fans in RL.

Richard Armitage seems to be aloof in my life of late.

 I haven’t seen any RA in Warsaw yet.

The official Polish poster and the new book edition both feature either Gandalf or Bilbo on the cover.

I want a huge billboard with moody Thorin glaring right at me when I drive on my way to work.

Am I asking too much?

Peter Jackson’s Hobbit Reality

I have to hand it to Sir PJ.

The man is an absolute genious.

He has managed to transform the Tolkien world of the Hobbit.

Here is a comaprison of the 1970’s animated versions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy novels about the Hobbits and Middle-earth, and the reality created by Peter jackson.

Nori, Ori, and Dori

I have to admit, Sir PJ has taken the world of the Hobbit, and created something quite special.

December really couldn’t come soon enough 🙂
