I’ve always gone for taller guys–until I meet the regal warrior dwarf named Thorin. Yowza!

Oh, Thorin, I can hear your mellifluous baritone serenading me now . . .

It’s wintry weather here right now so this bit of fanart seemed appropriate. And he’s so lovely in shades of blue. ūüėČ

OK, he does look a bit Jesus-like here, doesn’t he?

Alexipharmic Armitage: TAE Word for the Day

Standard

alexipharmic: (adjective)(1) warding off poison or infection; antidotal; prophylactic. (2) an alexipharmic agent, especially an internal antidote.

Alexipharmic arose to prominence in the early Baroque period, from the Greek¬†alexien, ‘to avert,’ and pharmakon, meaning ‘drug.’ Alexipharmic¬†was the dominant adjective form until ‘antidotal’ overtook it in the 1640s.¬† (courtesy of Dictionary.com)

Are you¬†about to become¬†infected by Real Life? Worries at work–worries you don’t have work–disagreements between friends–broken computers–broken hearts–holiday overload–neighbors from hell–nasty cold . . . Whatever the difficulty, the dilemma, the doubt, the darkness, somehow, this man and his ChaRActers seem to be¬†alexipharmic.

Just looking at him, those smiles, those eyes, that profile, makes me feel some of life's poison leach away.

He’s got the alexipharmic power to make life more bearable, better, more beautiful. I¬†recommend several generous doses daily.
