The Other Shoe

I hope you didn’t get up early to listen to the “full interview” with Richard Armitage on BBC Radio in Leicester. It was a case of canned fruit sold as fresh. And I fell for it. LOL! I really am laughing and glad I’m sitting behind this computer screen, so a few of you can’t whop me on the head for encouraging you to get up early.

For those who didn’t listen, I’ll make this short. Over half the interview was about RA’s experience making The Hobbit. It was a nice response, but there was nothing new in what he said. I mean nothing. Probably could have done that part of the interview in his sleep. :D The second half was about Richard III but almost identical to what was heard on Sunday except for one noteworthy comment which I’m sure we’ll all parse until there is nothing left of it. :D He said he had not been approached to be involved in a production about Richard III.

So there it is.

Oh, and Emily Anderson was able to fulfill her dream of speaking to Richard, and for that, I’m glad. Good on you, Emily. I really mean that! And don’t listen to my jaded self speaking above. I know entirely too much about Richard Armitage and have to remind myself the good people of Leicester are not quite so saturated with his info.

So yeah, there you have it.

And now I’m going back to sleep.

Wait! A picture, and what is fast becoming my favorite. I can’t remember if I’ve used this one before, but I give warning that I may use this one a lot.

And now I really am going back to sleep.
