More of Mr A from an excited fangurl/reporter!


Still trying to wrap my head around the idea that I actually am going to San Diego to Comic-Con next month.
That I will be reporting again. That I will, God willing, get to see Richard Armitage in the flesh and just maybe ask him a question or two. Be still my heart!

For me it will be a dream come true. I really couldn’t do this without the support of “our little community” of RA friends and I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart just for your good wishes and excitement for me alone.

Dearest Dawn aka asilomar  is helping me with a fundraising project featuring her lovely jewelry. I think you will love her winged heart charm as much as I do.  More on this later.  Am brainstorming for more ideas. And yes, those who wish to donate are welcome to do so.

Truthfully, it feels strange for me to ask for money for myself instead of a charity. But the plain truth is it’s the only way I can manage this.  I am going to see about setting up a donate button on here as suggested by RA Frenzy, just don’t know how to do it yet. I certainly do not wish for anyone to feel pressured to give anything. Trust me, I understand completely not having the wherewithal to do so.  And every little bit helps!

I hope you will enjoy these additional images of our lovely Richard from various interviews, photo shoots and red carpet moments.

I’m on the list . . .

On the list to be a reporter for CBR at Comic-Con, that is. I’ll get a free four-day pass and  cover one to two panels a day (no, I don’t know which ones yet) and get paid for it. Not a huge amount, but considering I’d have done it for free, I’m not going to sneeze at it.  And  apparently there’s all the convention junk food I can eat.

Now, I am still a long way from San Diego and the Hobbit panel and Richard Armitage, and I don’t just mean in terms of the 2,000 miles that separate me from that lovely city. It’s getting there and back and having a place to stay while I am there.  But the first step has been taken.  We shall see . . . I really appreciate everyone’s good wishes and support of any kind.
