Check out the initial phase of cross-stitch Thorin. We haven’t heard from Stitchin’ Richard in months!

I’ve gotta do this better somehow

•March 27, 2015 • 5 Comments

Tonight was the first time since Sunday I walked out of the office in daylight.

All I have eaten recently is sandwiches for lunch that can be delivered and bar food at night.

My digestion is going to heck because I am simply not moving enough.

I need more time to decompress.

Because I’ve been at work so much I haven’t been able to talk to my friends. At one point tonight I was having six conversations at once, between people in my presence and social media.

Which irritated me even more. And it was supposed to make me happy.

I’m sorta caught up with Richard Armitage but I want to write about him and other things but friends need attention and I need friends and I also need to decompress.

I *have* to get better organized. Theoretically I have many more hours in the week than I seem to have actually at my disposal.




Richard Armitage continues to disappear Hannibal crew members (or not, but I like this joke)

A friend of ours has finished a first draft of her novel. Check out her reflections!

And Jen Rasmussen (whose heroine, Lydia Trinket, ended her last novel tragicomically with a missing finger) has the second book her series coming out in April. First chapter is here!

Drinking and talking about Richard Armitage: Words more profound were never spoken

My favorite bartender, Evan, just got off work and he asked me how the blog was going.

I was drinking a Rapp Hefeweizen. Not my usual style.

And Evan was drinking a St Somewhere Philosopher — a slightly sour saison brewed with sage.

“Pretty good,” I said, “wanna see?”

He didn’t know who Richard Armitage was when I showed him this picture, but he did recognize this one:

Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. Publicity Still from 2012.

Anyway, Evan said: “I get it. That rugged face, but those ice blue eyes.”

“Yeah!” I said.

“It’s like, I’ve got the eyes of Elijah Wood, but I will protect you like Mickey Rourke,” he said.

Aaaw, Evan. If you weren’t young enough to be my son …

Usually we hear that Richard Armitage is nice to the crew

Richard Armitage Thorin Oakenshield

Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), threatening Dwalin while in the throes of the gold sickness, in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Cap.

I wanted Richard Armitage on the top of my blog, and I want my Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies DVD to get here already.
