Some Beard Recovery Goin’ On

So Richard Armitage graced us with some wisdom:

Good thing today was the day of the beard for all of those women who needed a little hair of the… oh never mind.

A little, er, taste of #OneBeardtoBringThemAll:

One of my favorites:

2011 Posts are Up

425417d8My kid is learning HTML and CSS (and eventually PHP and JQuery). She’s been hand keying my posts into archive pages, and boy is she learning how to move around with HTML. Phew! But I’m not about to tell her she can do this dynamically. If I do that, she’ll want to jump ahead when she needs the pain of doing links and other stuff manually. MUHAHAHAHA.

The point of this is not just so she can learn these languages but so you can easily look at my old posts. I’ve had countless questions about that and quite a bit of email from people venting their frustrations in trying to find something. Well, I’m trying to make it easier. 2010 went up a few weeks ago, and 2011 is now available. Look under ‘Archive’ on the menu.

The best part about going through these old posts, besides my kid learning something valuable, is my laughing and crying and cringing and being encouraged by all this crap I’ve written. I’m currently going through 2012 and so far, this is my favorite post from that year, and just may be my favorite on this blog. It really speaks to the spirit of this place.

And yes, I will put up a category and tag page. That’s when we’re going to jump to some PHP. :D

Twitpic, I’m So Glad You’re Not Going Away

twitpic-logoIf you don’t already know it, Twitpic was going to shutdown on September 25th, but the news as of Thursday is that they have been acquired. This means if you were getting ready to rush over to Twitpic to copy all of your photos, you can relax.

Nevertheless, you may still want to take a backup up of them. Instructions on how to save your photos without doing it manually are here.

Dear Twitpic,

I’m sorry for the misunderstanding between you and Twitter but so glad someone else thinks you’re important enough to stick around. You are a clean and easy service to deal with. I hope you stay that way!

And here’s hoping your new owners can deal with Twitter.

Signed,
A Fan

P.S. Here’s hoping you were bought by someone who is not going to throw in with the likes of Facebook.

And all those lovely photos I had of Richard Armitage can now rest easy. :D

Timeout for a Timeout

OnLocation-UrbanAtShedCrewtwitter-08Apr14Have you ever been so tired at the end of the day you didn’t care if you ate or bathed? You were like a homing pigeon focused on making it to a certain place, and that would be the bed? And you had to be focused ’cause you were so whipped that any distraction would have completely taken you off task?

Yeah, I know some of you have been that tired, and tonight I’m so there. My whole goal in the next half hour is to make it to bed. A few minutes ago the doorbell rang, and of course no one else is home to answer it. I flirted with the idea of ignoring it and proceeding onto my bedroom, but I felt bad about doing that and decided to see who it was. I’m so glad I didn’t blow it off, ’cause I opened the front door and lo and behold it was my ass finally getting home.

I really am tired tonight. It’s a good tired but a very real tired, so any speculation about Richard Armitage’s future plans will have to wait until tomorrow — at least for me.

And hey, we may hear something between now and then, and a very good chance it will be by the end of this month.

Rich,

I hope you’re taking a timeout too after that hellacious schedule for The Crucible.

I would write more, but man, my brain hasn’t gotten home yet. I hope it shows up before morning.

Goodnight,
A crazy…oh to hell with it; I’m to bed.

I hope one of you will wake me if something really interesting happens. :D

Several new banners for the final Hobbit segement, Battle of the Five Armies, are out. Go here for more.

Sarah’s done it again

The pun aside, these two photos are fantastic, and I have seen a lot of photos of Richard Armitage. Not saying how many. Actually, I have no clue how many. It is a lot.

The originals are found here, and I’m not entirely sure these can be embedded.

One more time and this time with the copyright symbol:

Richard Armitage by Sarah Dunn

note: I will remove if Ms. Dunn wants me to do so. No problem at all.

The Old Vic has heard us!
