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:

I Don’t Care If You All Have Heard This

Having trouble wanting to move, listen to this:

If you don’t want to move after listening, then you just may be dead.

My daughter and her friend have been dancing all over the house to this for hours, and SO and I finally joined them. We have now been dancing and laughing for the last couple of hours.

A song like this ought to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Got some pissed off people? This song could diffuse their anger.

edit:

My daughter just reminded me of a video her older sister made a few years ago that still can make all of us laugh. My three older kids were always doing things like this, and I have to admit I got a little choked watching this:

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

I’m Just Going to Say It

Some of you already know I think it, and please forgive me if it sounds arrogant. That is not how I feel at all. I’m still flabbergasted.

This is fun:

FireShot Screen Capture #165 - 'Twitter _ Notifications' - twitter_com_i_notifications

Every time I want to look at Richard Armitage’s timeline, I have to search it because I’ve been too busy to make a list. And when I search it, I see that above and get a stupid grin on my face and laugh involuntarily. One time SO was standing nearby, and I had to be nefarious about what made me laugh. LOL! How old am I? Do not answer that! I had to be sly because SO would have royally taken the Mickey out of me.

Maybe I’ll stop grinning at some point when this becomes old hat, but I’m having a hard time thinking this would ever become old hat. And this morning I can’t contain my exuberance.

In fact, I’m laughing as I write this and thinking about how this blog was supposed to be a 2-3 month lark. Thankfully, SO is out of earshot. And ohmygosh, if some of you knew how many times I’ve said I was going to quit! It’s pretty much a quarterly thing for me and sometimes more often. I’m still not sure how long I can go with this, but for now, this is still a lot of fun. Thanks, Richard. :D

note to self: Remember you have never taken this place seriously; don’t start now. Also, remember Twitter followers can be fickle even when they don’t intend to be. It happens, so don’t forget that. For now, just go with it and hope others have as much fun coming along for the ride.

edit: Richard Armitage followed me about five months, and it was fun while it lasted. :D

Richard Really is My Kind of Guy!

Richard Armitage with a sense of zany. My god he’s broken out of the “Brooding Mr. Darcy I’m too smart and sophisticated to get outrageous” kind of humor. Loving this.

And he wants suggestions!

Rich,

I’m so proud of you for not being intellectual all the time, and I swear this is not going to kill any of your brain cells no matter how much crying you hear from some quarters.

Oh, you’ve been this way all along? I figured as much. :D

Signed,
One of your crazy fans who wishes she had figured out sooner not to take herself so seriously all the time.

P.S. Is this another charity challenge? Inquiring minds can’t help but ask. ;-)

Richard Armitage in the Fray

2IJOqmmzSo it seems Richard Armitage joined Twitter on his birthday. I said a long time ago, “Don’t do it, Richard!” But hey, if he’s there, and it seems he is, let’s have some fun with him. :D

First Tweet:

And now for what was formerly called a fake fan letter, and maybe will remain; depends on Rich:

Richard,

I’m staking my stellar reputation on believing your Twitter account is legit. Given that belief, I have a birthday present, which I thought about mailing to you, but hey, since you’re here with the rest of us nuts, I’ll just give it to you now. A tweet seen round the world from a man who saw the opening night of The Crucible. It gave us longtime fans great vindication.

Hope you enjoy that well deserved praise.

Signed,
One of your crazy fans

P.S. I hope you don’t make a liar out of me and prove to be a fake.

Meg Sees The Crucible Again

Some of you remember Meg from back in June. Well, she got to see The Crucible again and shares the experience in great detail. Enjoy:

London – food, friends and Richard Armitage.
I wish that I could say that yesterday’s weather was lovely – the one time I actually dress for the sunny weather, a chilly breeze decided to appear, so thanks for that mother nature!

(I want this bus…badly. And it’s contents too if possible!!)

Read the rest here

And Meg is far from alone in attending more than once. There are some people who have attended upwards of eight times. At least eight is the most viewings I know about. I’ll bet there are some who have attended more. :D

Some of you (and you know who you are) need to share publicly what it’s like to see this several times. If you’re not comfortable, I completely get it, but I hate that there are only a handful of us who have gotten to hear about it. Those of us who are not able to attend will take all the crumbs we can get. We may be deluded into thinking we might make a loaf out of it somehow. :p
