I’m on a roll . . . with the roles. And the real thing.


I fear I have an addictive personality. It’s a good thing I never cared for alcohol much, had any desire to smoke or try recreational drugs. Because judging by how much I like writing, blogging, vidding and Photoshopping in connection with Richard Armitage, I would be prune-faced with a whisky and cigarette-laced voice by now.

Anyhoo, here’s some more evidence of the fun I am having with Photoshop and images of Mr. Armitage in his various roles and as his sweet self.

A Masterpiece of a Man


Yeah, I’ve been Photoshopping again with my favorite subject. Just ate supper and fingers crossed it doesn’t tear up my stomach. I have far too many conditions with acronyms, I have decided: IBS, FMS,MPS, GERD, RLS . . . and my own self-diagnosed condition, TIS (Technologically Impaired Syndrome).  FYI, all those letters stand for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fybromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Restless Legs Syndrome. No WONDER I need to be distracted ( and inspired and amazed and delighted and starstruck) by Richard Armitage. 😉

Adventures with the Storyteller


I think we all have a crush on this “so, so British and too cute” guy from BBC’s Cbeebies.  Perhaps I would sleep better if Storytelling Richard would visit me each night and tell me a wonderful story, before tucking me into bed with a “night, night, sleep tight” . . .  then again, I might be a trifle too “stirred” to sleep. Then again, perhaps I would have some really interesting dreams once Morpheus did claim me.

(BTW, for the first time in days I was actually asleep when my husband prepared for work –he often finds me still awake–and I have no memory of hearing him moving about this morning. I slept until noon. Given when I fell asleep, that was a bit more than eight hours. The most sleep I have had in days. Nice.)

Monet and Mr. Thornton for a rainy day

It’s a rainy night, a precursor to more rain expected tomorrow and tomorrow night, with thunderstorms likely to be part of the mix. More aches and pains on the way. C’est la vie.

My diva cat Puddin’ is bound and determined to stay attached to my shoulder which makes it a little hard to work on the computer, but I soldier on. I’m going to shut things down soon–and very possibly throw out the cat, I only got 3 1/2 hours of sleep and it’s telling on me–and re-read more of Rebecca. Catch you sometime tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy some Mr. Thornton and Monet. Mr. Armitage does have a way of making me feel better.
