Here are links to posts that are connected with the event:

The event name should have been changed from Pinter/Proust to Me/Jealous, but reading Perry’s account made it much better.

On how Richard is a heart thief! (tumblr)

And EVEN MORE stealing! I’m starting to see a pattern, Richard!

Marie has the Armitage blues ūüė¶

I’d imagine sitting on Richard’s lap must be the best seat in the house!

Thoughts on “On Stage” Richard

How about some beautiful pics of “Stage Door” Richard?

Like I need ANOTHER Armitage daydream to contemplate!!

All signs point to a possible visit from Richard (at least that’s what Obscura thinks…)

Jazz marks the day when A03 (a fanfiction site) is the best source of reliable news

More on Proust… kinda…

I though A is for Armitage!

Thou shall be smouldering hot! and other commandments

Don’t forget to check out the fanfiction round-up by Arkie and Guylty’s Tumblr best.

See you next week ūüôā

On standing next to Richard Armitage

Yesterday I rewatched Vicar of Dibley, with the lovely Harry Kennedy *collective swoon*.

There was one thought nagging at me.

When Harry was strolling hand in hand with Rosie, I could help wonder height-wise, how I’d fare next to Richard.

According to IMDB¬†Keeley Hawes, who plays Harry’s sister Rosie,¬†is 5′ 10″ (1.78 m).

Remember that this is info from IMDB, so you need to give or take 0,5 inch ūüôā

Anyway, that would make her more or less my height.

I think I’d look good standing next to Richard!

That’s quite a nice fit ūüôā

A few centimetres shorter is Hermione Norris who plays Ros Myers 5′ 7″ (1.70 m)

I’ve always like the chemistry between these two.

I think they had a great working relationship because each knew they could kick the others butt!

Then there’s Marian, played by¬†Lucy Griffiths, who¬†is¬†5′ 6″ (1.68 m)

Daniela Denby-Ashe, N&S’s¬†Margaret Hale is 5′ 4″ (1.63 m)

Dawn French, who plays¬†Vicar Gerry, is the shortest from RA’s leading ladies, at just¬†5′ (1.52 m)

By the way, I think Dawn had to stand on a rather large box to balance out this promo image.

The things we do to snuggle up to a tall dark handsome man!

So, which leading lady is closest to you in height?

Would Richard have to bow down to plant a kiss on your lips?

The most ‘British’ Armitage Character

I’m siting here, in my plastic Union Jack bowler hat and matching g-string undies, drinking a nice Earl Grey with milk¬†from my Kate and William mug, and thinking which Richard Armitage character¬†is most ‘British’.

This is a toughy, and I’ll tell you why.

It all depends on the criteria.

1. John Porter and Lucas North have both risked their life for Queen and country, which would make them the biggest patriots.

On the other hand, we have no indication¬†of what their motives were when they chose their professions (I’m conveniently¬†ignoring the whole Lucas/John aspect).

2. John Standring represents the farmer, who works hard to provide food for British masses.

No matter where you’re from, farming is a tough business.

It’s people like John that keeps that giant¬†machine called Great Britain going.

3. John Thornton is a member of the new middle-class of successful manufacturers, who helped Britain become an economic power.

He’s the¬†quintessential Victorian Gentleman.

5. Guy, just because I know you ladies¬†like the scoundrel, and nothing says British like leather pants and a noose…

He looks like the type to wear boxer shorts that read: The Sheriff went to London, and all I got were these crap pants!

6. Look-wise Harry Kennedy¬†¬†is the most ‘British’, with his striped¬†jumper, corduroy trousers, and floppy hair.

His personality could be described as the stereotypical yummines we expect from a British lad.

He knows his Jane Austin films, and loves the British countriside.

Philip Turner could be put in the same category.

As I said, this is a tough one, so give me your choices for the most ‘British’ RA character!

Who is the most stereotypical?

Who embodies the best qualities associated with a British gentleman?

When you’re the only sane person around…

¬†You know those days on RL¬†when you swear you’re surrounded by idiots?

People say and do the least logical things imaginable, and you feel fortunate to be the only one who hasn’t taken any crazy pills.

Then again, if you’re in the minority, doesn’t it mean that they are right and it’s you who’s wrong?

Anyway, I am counting down my days before my summer holidays start.

As of the 29th of June I have 2 whole months of absolute bliss.

No work or college, with all reports written, exam taken and passed.

Believe me, before that moment comes, I shall, no doubt, have to go through the fire.

That’s the thing about nice events in your life.

You end up paying for them, one way or another.

I like to think of it as life balancing itself out.

I have a feeling I’ll have to go through some tough stuff before I can sit down in front of my fireplace, with a nice cup of tea, my pups by my side, and watch N&S.

It’ll be worth it!

I’m off to the countryside for a longish weekend.

Think Dibley Village.

It’s nothing like it, of course, but it’s just as special to me.

No sexy neighbor, with a love of books, moving in next door, though.

My neighbor is less this:

And more like this:

There’s a retired couple living next door.

The man is a tad misogynistic, and his poor wife can do nothing right, which he points out on a regular basis.

¬†I literally punch the air and think: ‘You go Lady, good on you” every time she stands up to him!

We call him Bilbo Baggins, that’s what he looks like. Unfortunately, he chooses to walk around sans T-shirt.

Yet another reason I wish it was Harry living next door.

When he sneezes, he does it so loudly, he scares all the poor farm animals in a radius of a dozen kilometres.

It’s a wonder hens lay any eggs when he’s about!

For the past few years Bilbo been conducting some loud, and very annoying, DIY project.

What it is, no one knows.

I’m surprised he hasn’t erected the Taj¬†Mahal on his property by now.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Spectacle Richard Armitage

Hello, can’t really wrap my head around a proper Armitage post (I’m still going through the¬†FanstRA 3¬†posts), so I shall leave you with something sweet and super adorable, but a bit on the lazy and unimaginative side!

IWantToBeAPinUp¬†luvs you! She just needs to get her¬†groove back ūüėČ

I have a feeling I will be scheduling a date with John Porter and Strike Back really soon!

Girls love to make passes

At men who wear glasses…

The question is, who wears them the best?

Faux Russian, Lucas style

Remember about The Paper Richard Competition!

British Comedy at its best

I regret that Richard Armitage has not been in more comedies. We have The Vicar of Dibley, where he definitely has some funny lines, but was mostly hot looking, straight talking and balancing out the crazy village, insane Alice and love hungry Geraldine.

He¬† did have the honour in participating in the last joke though…

Here are some other British comedy clips I love.

Hope you enjoy ūüôā

The Catherine Tate Show

Little Britain
