2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #9

Mr A is really making my Audible subscription worth while. Yet another audio book to release, soon. Another performance together with a female narrator, Emilia Fox (whom I loved in Love Virtually with David Tennant, and who is unforgettable as a very frail, ethereal Georgina Darcy in the 1995 Pride & Prejudice), this time of a work of literature that has me intrigued just on the basis of the Audible blurb:

However, I haven’t quite figured out yet whether the audio book will feature all 10 stories from Carter’s short story collection, or whether it is just “The Bloody Chamber”, the first and longest short story of the collection. I find the blurb inconclusive.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js So anyway, keeping the above tweet by Mr A in mind, as well as the fact that The Bloody Chamber is released on 15 March (and not a freebie), I take it that the Q&A is to be our ‘pressie’ for International Women’s Day on 8 March. Well, I look forward to that then, as plenty of questions have been tweeted at Audible. Too many, actually, to compile a Twitter Moment.

But now on to the weekly round-up, which is getting a new header image because we have just launched a new month.

Oops, wrong version 😂 and a very amateurish edit, at that. I was just having fun…

Looking very formal, Mr Armitage… bit like my dad when photographed in the local press 😂

  1. 2. No, never, please. I’m afraid he’d be too good at it, and I don’t want that seered into my brain. It took me years to get over Ralph Fiennes in Schindler’s List.
    9. So ridiculous: another example of why I love this fandom.

    • I think people must think I’m a little insane when they saw me taking mini Guy out of my bag and taking pics of him. 😀
      Yesterday I was using my car a snowy slope for the minis little sled. My neighbors were giving me funny looks, but well I guess they already think I’m weird 😀

  2. #11 – what is that from? Is that Guy??

    Thanks Guylty. #2 – I’d rather not, too, though I cop3 pretty well with Rufus Sewell in The Man in the High Castle.

    Just started to listen to The Tattooist.

    • To be taken with a cup of coffee/tea. No need for sugar. Lasts until lunch 😉.
      And snow has now turned to slush. It’s easier to keep warm, too, because the nasty, Easterly wind has died down.


  3. Thanks for all the goodies, Guylty. I do love Little Guy. ❤ It made me wonder what Pop!Thorin is up to these days. He’s much missed.

    Do you know, I never noticed rimlight before and now I’m noticing it all the time. But what should I call the light that keeps shining through the tips of Daniel’s ears in later episodes of BS season one?

    I hope everyone’s weather has improved by now and the slush has gone away. 🌤
