Armitage thumbs of distraction
I’m sorry — you’re probably starting to get a bit annoyed by this recurring theme, but I had yet another day of writing on several different things with no coherence, and a fair amount of background distraction, so I’m posting these caps from a time when Richard Armitage, then playing Lucas North, could still nibble his own cuticles to his heart’s content, and didn’t have to contract the task out. I was pushed back in the direction of this theme this week, when a friend alerted me to an exciting news story that indicates that in future, with the publication of the new DSM, nailbiting will be considered a form of OCD. Even though — and I found this interesting — most nailbiters really enjoy their nailbiting.
Hey, Mr. Armitage, I hope you enjoy whatever you’re doing with your fingers and cuticles, too. And if not, when you’re back in the U.S. you can get your shrink to treat you for it and have your U.S. health insurance cover it! Isn’t that great?
In my defense I will note that these are some gorgeous and extremely consoling thumbshots. Will be back soon with something substantive, I hope. Meanwhile, enjoy the thumbs — from Spooks 8.7. My caps.
