Sir Guy is reading–’Urban’?? and Ladywriter tries to get RL Ducks in Row


Sir Guy was loafing on the blue loveseat in the living room, long legs crossed at the ankles and draped across the back of the furniture. Scarlett was draped across his well-toned tummy while his handsome aquiline nose was tucked into the paperback in his hand. The Bernard Hare book, of all things. Would wonders ever cease?

“So that’s where my book got to!” Ladywriter, her arms folded across her chest, smiled down at the duo. A pair of kohl-rimmed blue eyes (nicely accented by the color of the upholstery) peeped at her above the edge of the book.  Did she detect a hint of sheepishness there? NOT that he would admit it.

“Urhm . . . yes, well . . .” Sir Guy sniffed and gave a nonchalant shrug of his Floppy Pirate Shirt-clad shoulders.  “Thought I might just–take a peek. Since you have not yet read this tome,” he added in a faintly accusatory tone. Standing up for his CReAtor, was he?

Ladywriter sighed. “I told you, my dearest dark knight, my mind has been going in a thousand different directions of late and I’d like to be able to concentrate on the story as it deserves.” Her mouth curled into a smirk. “And some of us have to work at building our business for a living, you know . . . “

Sir Guy raised a brow. “And some of us had to–perish–in a particularly nasty way to get to enter this Valhalla known as the Land of the So Not Dead.”

Ladywriter bowed her head. “‘Tis true, Sir Guy, and I do not begrudge you one minute of your much-deserved happiness.”

He gave her a gracious nod in return.  “Thank you, my lady.  It was your idea in the first place, the entire SND thing . . .”



“And once the craziness of this weekend and the first part of next week are over, then, perhaps, I can settle down and read the book.  In the meantime, I’ve got interview questions for several people to write for our bonus feature on the POTR video, along with a script for my hippy dippy video jockey from the 70s to do, and Benny will be shooting me in front of the green screen Sunday, I’ve got a Tuesday luncheon date with our yogi we are shooting an instructional vid for, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage to shoot Tuesday night . . .”

Sir Guy stroked Scarlett, who proceeded to purr softly as she squinted at the big, handsome fellow she adored.  It was good being Ladywriter’s cat. You got to meet the most interesting ChaRActers . . .


“And–a doctor’s visit Monday?” He tilted his head. “You KNOW you haven’t been feeling that well of late, either.”

She shrugged. “No, but I was hanging on for that appointment. At long last. WITH my former student, no less.  A very intelligent and very sweet young man. He’s gotten raves from his other patients. So–I have hopes . . .” She crossed her fingers on both hands.

“So–enjoy the book and tell me what you think, and be patient with me, dear Sir Guy. You KNOW you are still my favorite ChaRActer . . .”

And always will be.




Wow, if that’s true, it would be amazing. Gary Oldman may make a cameo?



And more info from the ever-trusty Servetus!

“Who else are you negotiating with?”

We’re negotiating with Richard Armitage of “The Hobbit” and Nadine Velaszquez, of “El vuelo” and the series, “My name is Earl.” The producer is negotiating with him for the main role, that of a journalist who arrives in Peru because of the history of the casa Matusita [a well known haunted house], and with Nadine for the role of his wife. It will all depend on his calendar. She [the producer] spoke with Gary Oldman, who’s very good friends with Malcolm McDowell, he’s agreed verbally to do a cameo, but nothing’s confirmed.

¿Con quiénes más están negociando?

Guy is here and he’s bringin’ the smirks, smoulders, struts and snarls!



Soooo many “S” words suit our super sexy Sir Guy–smirking, snarling, smouldering, slinking, strutting . . .

He IS the hottest baddie turned goodie. The hottest baddie, or goodie, period.




Happy Guyday Friday, my darlings!!

The delightful & dashing Mr. A & Real Life Stuff with Fedoralady


So, I feel as if I am w-a-a-y  behind in terms of the Armitage blogs, FB pages, et cetera,  and keeping up with Armitage World these days. Part of it boils down to issues with my computer and my “Country High-Speed,” which is to say, not very fast at all. And there are problems with my Windows Live Mail, which of late is not very lively.  Still, it’s better than no internet at all (as I found out during that long week when I did without).

Part of it is that my mind is going in a thousand different directions (I really do begin to wonder if it’s all the FMS or if I have developed some sort of adult-onset ADD).



Now that April has arrived, Real Life gets much busier for us re community events and video production company work.  And I am doing more writing for pay–not a lot, but more. Yay! And part of it all is my sleeping patterns are all screwed up (perhaps even more than normal), so I am often not online when others of you are.  So–if you are reading this–”HELLO!” *waves cheerily and grins*

So–I have managed to do some photo editing in fits and starts involving our beautiful boy’s most recent appearances. Here are some examples of what I’ve done, some of which have already appeared on Pinterest and at my FB page, The Richard Armitage Effect.  I hope you enjoy, and I hope you are having a good week.

P.S.~ I got my Urban book this week–hooray!–but as I have been boning up on the finer points of our Papa Bear camera, I have postponed getting started on it. This weekend will be busy with three events–a family reunion luncheon and an outdoor memorial event to shoot for PRP Saturday, and our humane society’s Bark in the Park on Sunday, which we also plan to video and shoot stills for. Thinking of waiting to begin the book until next week . . . getting better and better at this delayed gratification stuff.











Having fun playing with ridiculously good-looking people. :D


Those of you who have followed this blog for any length of time whatsoever know Girlfriend loves photo editing.

So, naturally, when the latest crop of RA photos from Cinema Con in Las Vegas came to my attention, I needed to play. And here are some of the fruits of my happy labor! I hope you will enjoy . . . and now, I think I’m going to veg out & take a nap (I lead *such* a wild life).








If you ever wondered what 21st century Guy might look like . . .


BeFunky_RAGuycollageedit.jpg He’s more–civilized (but never say “tamed”). More coolly confident, but he still can be–edgy. Intense. And he does love to look sleek and sexy. The wenches? They are still crazy about him. Don’t be hatin’ the swagger. The modern-day version of the World’s Hottest Henchman has got it goin’ on. Oh, yeah . . . Happy Guyday Friday! :D BeFunky_guysmilingfinaledit.jpg

Just Call Me the RA Collage Queen. Boom, Boom, Boom!



Well, it’s fun and when you can’t sleep, it’s a nice way to pass the time. A mixture of collages and FB covers I’ve made this week. Hope you enjoy!

Try saying the above 10 times fast. It’ll make you giggle.

ICYMI: New article with Sarah Wayne Callies re “Into the Storm”

Sounds like lots of thrills and squeals–as in us squealing over the heroic dad in the sort-of-wet shirt. I can only think being in the above position with RA, even with the wind machines and water,  has got to be a lot more enjoyable than being feasted upon by actors made up as zombies. Just sayin’ . . .  and if anybody dies in this movie, sorry, Sarah, but better you than RA.
