Armitage is not lymphatic.


lymphatic: (adjective) (1) sluggish; lacking energy. (2) of or relating to lymph.

It was formally believed that an excess of lymph in the system resulted in sluggishness. Comes from the Latin lympha (lymph, water).

When I saw this as my entry and read the first definition, I smiled to myself. “That’s definitely NOT Richard Armitage. He may have to fuel himself with Cokes and espressos on occasion, but lacking energy, he’s surely not.”  (photos/screencaps courtesy of Richard Armitage Net)

Armitage is Not Lymphatic

Richard Armitage, with performances so dramatic

Rich with talent, on that subject I’m emphatic;

Long hours you work, perfecting your craft,

to call you lazy, would simply be daft!


Around the world, so many miles,

signed autographs, shared gorgeous smiles,

Gave interviews, answered thoughtfully,

You made us all proud–well, naturally!


You always remain the affable gent

sweetly cheeky–just heaven-sent!

but what you aren’t is a man lymphatic

of that fact, I am quite emphatic.

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. Interesting usage, tee-hee. It sounds as though this would be analogous to the medieval designation as phlegmatic as one of the four bodily humours.
