(Or abjure from alliteration, it appears.)
Yes, folks, it’s the day after Christmas and you get not one, but TWO words for the day here at The Armitage Effect.
Abjure: (verb, tr.) 1. to avoid or to abstain from. 2. to renounce under oath.
Avidity (noun) 1. enthusiasm or dedication. 2. eagerness; greediness.
Being without electricity for several hours due to the nasty storms that moved through last night, I was forced to abjure from any Richarding online (in the sense of being forced by circumstances beyond my control to abstain from it).
I certainly never seem to purposefully avoid Richarding. And if Richarding were made illegal–oh, don’t even go there!–and I was asked to renounce all Richarding–
Well. As I said, I do not even want to go there.
Avidity for Armitage? Oh yes, that I will gladly claim. I am an enthusiastic, eager, dedicated and ardent Armitage aficionado.
I try very hard not to be greedy about it. But when we are in the midst of a long drought, one does long for anything–a new pic or an old one that’s been unearthed; a snippet from an interview, a fresh quote about him from one of his fellow cast or crew members.
Of course, we’ve been inundated in recent weeks with Armitage goodies–so much I admit I haven’t kept up at times. And, not wanting too many spoilers for the film, I started avoiding (abjuring!) watching the new Hobbit spots. At times I feel a tad overwhelmed–but I am not complaining. I will simply stretch out my enjoyment.
But I can never stay away from Mr. Armitage’s many charms–his talent, charisma, beauty, humor, sex appeal, sweetness–and the chance to share them and discuss them with fellow aficionados for very long.
I just can’t abjure from my Armitage avidity, it seems.
