We saw Guy finally achieve his dream of being named the Sheriff of Nottingham after killing the sheriff and doing away with Isabella and Robin. Or so he thought. Guy, oh Guy–you have to stick around and make sure the dead are really DEAD. Still, for a few brief, shining moments, you were the Big Man on Campus in Nottingham. And power looked good on you.

I just got my April issue of Southern Living Magazine in the mail today. It’s a great mag, lots of info about southern culture, food, decor, travel, gardens and more. Speaking of food, they regularly offer images of mouth-watering “foodporn”–in the case of the front cover this time, a fresh strawberry meringue cake that looks to die for. Benny whipped up my usual nighttime serving of Activia yogurt into a delicious and nutritious strawberry smoothie–a milkshake without the guilt. We are already planning to make the strawberry chicken salad recipe featured inside the mag. Yummmm!
Now, I personally find strawberries-fresh, ripe, sweet, juicy red strawberries–quite delicious with chocolate.
And chocolate makes me think of Mr. A with his deep, rich, delicious chocolate velvet voice.
Hmmmm, chocolate, strawberries and Richard. Let’s add in some whipped cream, shall we?
I am sure you all can take it from here. Carry on . . .
Thorin Oakenshield: brave, determined, fierce, heroic, an amazing warrior and uncrowned king.
Who is also very hairy and on the short side. Well, he is a dwarf, after all.
And I love him from the top of his long-maned head with its charming pointy ears to the tips of his boot-shod feet.
You might say Thorin is my hairy hottie. *sigh* And I think he’s just dreamy.

John Singer Sargent captured Monet at work, the lovely Camille reposing in the background.
By now many of you know I love the work of the Impressionist painters–and of Richard’s incandescent performance as the passionate, dedicated, hardworking artist, Claude Monet. If you are familiar with Monet’s work and with Richard’s performance in The Impressionists, these images will strike a chord with you. Seeing that blue smock makes me smile.

I have also included my second Monet video, which incorporates actual quotes from the artist himself and images of his paintings along with screencaps from the series, paired with Yo-Yo Ma’s poignant cello. It’s bittersweet, not unlike Monet’s own life with its “lights and shadows.”
Not surprisingly, I find it one of my most artistic videos. How can you go wrong with Richard Armitage, Claude Monet and Yo-Yo Ma (and in HD)?
Last year, I found this sweet, lively little song on iTunes, performed by Steve Miller and used it to make a vid dedicated to all the “hopeful romantics” out there. It features Harry, Thornton and Guy and their lovely ladies, and everyone–even Guy and Marian–get their happy ending.
Sure, he sneers, snarls, sniffs and walks around with a face like thunder. But a good storm can be fascinating–if frightening–to watch. Especially when the thunder and lightning come in that tall, smouldering leather-clad package known as Sir Guy of Gisborne. I am sure you’ll agree . . .
