Grades submitted. RIP Fall term 2011.

I gritted my teeth and I did it. Some will be happy, some will not, but I am free from this particular burden. HALLELUJAH!


It’s that time of year again: a point at which we think about the needs of others in the midst of gratitude for the gifts we have received. Here’s a link to Mr. Armitage’s recommended charities at JustGiving and a link to Act!onAid, a child sponsorship organization for which he recorded a voiceover in December 2010. In 2011, Mr. Armitage also participated in fundraising efforts for Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. You can also generate a donation by doing any or Book Depository shopping that you do for the holidays via, or or shopping via, as these fansites both donate earned commission to charities that Armitage has endorsed. Fans have also donated in honor of Armitage to Oxfam International.

      • As the mother of a senior in her ultimate semester, that would be the look on my face when I got the news! Then of course I would have a look of murderous rage (think SIr Guy on a bad day) when I confronted my child about her grade


        • As the person who gave the grade, that would be the look on my face when my department chair calls me because you called him demanding an explanation.


  6. Yay! Hope you have plans to be some place nice and relaxing with those who love and appreciate you as much as we do here. I’m back in Chicago today (via LA) so it’s a bit of a shock to feel this arctic cold weather again. Nothing says, “Welcome Home” quite like arctic air and 40 pounds of unopened mail! 🙂


    • I’m headed that way myself tomorrow. Toss the mail. If it’s important, they’ll call you 🙂 Best wishes to you, too.
