The stories we tell ourselves…

Warning, the post contains instances of blogger referring to herself in the third person which some may find annoying and disturbing.

The stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves…

We repeat them like a mantra till they become set in stone.

AgzyM doesn’t write.

Nope, she loves reading, listening and talking all together waaay too much, but she doesn’t write.

2,5 years later she’s still blogging and although both quality and quantity of her written word may be questionable, she’s still at it.

AgzyM doesn’t run.

Not for a bus, not for anyone…

Yet half way through her Zombies, Run 5K program, she doesn’t mind telling you that she is kicking those zombies butts and has her heart set on further goals- a 10K, perhaps a half marathon one day.

What other stories on repeat in that thick skull- stories of what cannot be done- repeated to the point when they become an absolute?

It at moments like these that I think of poor Mr Armitage who script after script is confronted with, what he claims, is one of his greatest fears.

Doused and drowning, sinking and swimming, sprayed, spritzed, hosed down (and that’s just Porter…).

There are more projects on his CV that involve a wet T-shirt competition than not.

Wet in water and mud, soon filthy canal muck, he puts aside the story he tells himself and just does it anyway for his admirers’ amusement and entertainment.

Do you ever tell yourself what you simply can’t do but know deep down inside it may just be that- a story?

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 🙂

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?

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 😉

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 🙂

Run Richard, Run! But what’s he running from/towards?

Empty Lucas Running insert idea

I really enjoy getting ideas from the comments my wonderful readers leave, so I want to try something new today.

I’ve used the image of Lucas North running many times.

There’s something about how Richard’s body looks in motion that makes me want to cry out a Hallelujah!

Just look at those thighs and that junk in his trunk!

I could send hours fiddling with this image and, actually, I have.

I’ve had Richard running with dogs:

And running away from dragons:

Now I want to hear YOUR IDEAS!!!

What is Richard running away from?

What is Richard running towards?

Leave your ideas in comments and remember, the dafter the better and nothing is too out there!

Give as much info as you can to help me, maybe a little background story or link to a photo, and I will do my best to PS your ideas and post them throughout the week 🙂

To start us off, here’s Bilbo Baggins, the ultimate fangirlhobbit, chasing after Richard for an autograph!

Honestly, I can’t blame the amorous Halfling, that’s more or less what I’d look like!

I can’t wait to see what you crazy lot will come up with!!!
