I’ll be channeling a bit of Gerri this winter . . .

I needed new pajamas. I wanted something other than the usual plaid flannel. And I ran across the ones you see pictured above at Amazon . . .

Now, the background color and the pattern are a bit different, but they still reminded me of someone–

Hopefully my “Harry Kennedy” will like these on his sweetheart as much as the vicar’s did.  And they do look nice and comfy, don’t they?

And I am getting myself something I have always wanted. A bed jacket. Something to put on while I am reading, watching TV or reading in bed and the rest of me is snug beneath the covers.  Right now,  a tie-dyed print sweatshirt hoodie with a broken zipper is serving as a stand-in.

I didn’t want some frilly pastel beribboned number  like the ones worn in the old black and white films I love to watch (as fetching as said jackets look). However, a comfortable jacket with a bit of style to it–something that didn’t scream “geriatric”–was desirable.  And then I found this little number:

Do you think the vicar and Harry would approve?

Black Sky & Birthday Preparations

Standard

OK, we now know the film Richard is currently filming will be called Black Sky.  Very ominous sounding, which is suitable for a film about a tornado and its terrible aftermath.  Less ominous sounding (and much more festive) is the fact Richard will be celebrating the big Four-One right here in the good ol’ USA in just a couple of days. Word on the street is the ChaRActers are already gearing up for the big celebration . . .

If you haven’t been to iwanttobeapinup.wordpress.com and participated in the birthday celebration countdown by AgzyM and Gisbornesboy, you’ve still got time to throw your name in the pot by answering the question of the day for a chance to win an amazing tote bag featuring Gisby’s own Little RA character cartoons.  Congrats to all the winners thus far!  And I have an RA birthday surprise or two for y’all of my own . . . 😉

Sunny Saturday with Harry & Gerri

Standard

As I have said before, who in the world doesn’t love Harry Kennedy? There’s pure sunshine in that smile. He’s sweet, he’s a cutie pie (I’d want to pinch those cheeks just as Trudy did!) and he’s downright adorable, this clever accountant who loves a good read and knows a good woman when he sees her. 

Harry is cuddly and sexy wrapped up in one tall, lanky, floppy-haired, jumper-clad ChaRActer. And he and Gerri make one lovely and lovable couple. So, Dawn French wanted someone gorgeous for the role? I think Richard Armitage was surely made to order for the part.  And VoD and Harry offer us that rarity in RA’s career–a happy ending for his ChaRActer.
