I’ve got the power! Well, maybe not. But RA does . . .


Sir Guy, my favorite RA character and the one who introduced me to Richard's amazing acting skills. Sir Guy definitely has tenacity (and mad skillz with the eye makeup and a really big, shiny sword).

My computer power cord is driving me mad. It’s due to be replaced, another is on the way–it’s been so capricious of late, I never know if it’s going to charge the battery or simply be as lifeless a lump as Sarah Caulfield was at times. The power had dropped to 12 percent so I shut it down a while and let it have a rest. Now it is working again, at least intermittently. The transformer is burning my chest a bit but it that’s what it takes to make it work, so be it.
After all, Richard Armitage is not one to say “die,” why should I? Now, it only this goldarned power cord would cooperate. I’ve FanstRAvanganza commitments to keep, and days to go before I sleep, and days to go before I sleep . . . apologies to Robert Frost.
In the meantime . . . this bloke has got the power, even if fedoralady doesn’t.

About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. You tell that power cord that if it doesn’t start behaving, you’re going to call on John Porter and he will commando it back to shape and order!
    Innate objects are afraid of Porter (never checked and have no evidence of this, but I’m presuming and it starnds to reason…) πŸ˜‰

    • If Sgt. Porter was dealing with the power cord, it would not dare to misbehave. I imagine him roaring at it in the same manner he bellowed into the camera at Collinson on the helicopter when they left poor A’sad.

  2. It’s a shame some boffin somewhere can’t invent a wireless RA power cord that works via pointing an empty battery at the TV while he is on screen. One smoulder from him and surely every battery in the world could be fully charged in seconds. Not sure what it would do to the TV set though. *eek* LOL

    I hope your new power cord arrives soon, Angie and LOL at your hubby’s comment. πŸ™‚

    • He’s a keeper, that husband of mine. πŸ˜€ I think if they could harness the electricity that Richard creates there would be no need for coal or hydro or nuclear energy to produce it. It would be a greener world!! πŸ˜‰

      • I love this quote from a Daily Mail article about Richard: “And just think about the saving on the heating bills. If we plug him into the national grid he can keep us warm all winter”… πŸ™‚ It would be a greener world indeed!
