Speaking of Shopping

Richard Armitage Santa HatChristmas is almost on us, and maybe you want to buy some Armitage memorabilia for a fellow fan? Oh you don’t want to stop there? You want to buy something for yourself as well? I’ve got the place for you, and you don’t even have to leave the house. What could be better than that?

No, forget I asked that. I can see you have visions of Richard Armitage in your living room. I wish I could help you with that, but I haven’t been able to do that for myself and doubt I can do it for you. But there is something that might soothe your need for things Armitage AND help with some good causes at the same time. And did I mention you don’t have to leave the house? Okay, yeah, I did, but it bears repeating. Especially to someone like me who hates shopping.

Agzy is having a silent auction of things Armitage to benefit Richard Armitage’s Just Giving pages. It’s already started, and you can check out the details here. And when I said you don’t have to leave the house, I meant you don’t even have to pay the cost of leaving the house. If you win a bid, the shipping costs will be covered by those who donated the items. As someone who has shipped items all over the world, I can tell you this is a huge perk of the auction. But stop reading this and go over and check it out!

People, People, People

I know Peter Jackson won’t allow any photography from the winner of the Charity Auction! I was kidding about getting some pictures. It was just a joke. Honest.

Although if I were a winner, I might be tempted to take one of these to NZ:

No, not the matchstick. That thing above it — the camera. :D Of course I would also have to get a fake id and board a plane under false pretenses, so that I wouldn’t have to sign my real name on the non-disclosure agreement. LOL!

Watch someone take this seriously. Haven’t you learned anything about this blog?

Maybe a disclaimer to Sir Peter will soothe you:

Dear Sir Peter,

I like to tease which you may not realize since you have absolutely no clue about me or this blog. Thank Heaven! But if for some reason you do, ignore me.

A fan, but I am not at liberty to say who I am a fan of at the moment. It’s all very secret so that no one will feel funny, ever, about anything.

So the letter to Sir Peter didn’t work?

Maybe a picture will put you in a better mood:

Oh, you’re still reading, Sir Peter. Well, pay no attention to the picture. It’s just a photo of a pleasant looking chap who could pass for some guy named Richard Armitage.

Let’s Do Lunch?

If you have ever wondered what RA frenzy really looks like, see what Calexora is proposing. I just have one thing to say about it. If you go, get some pictures and video for us! :D

But candidly, this is so majestic and lush (click to enlarge photos):

not to mention this:

that Callie might not be that crazy. :D
