Day 14 of my smoking cessation drive. And the best husband of all is rapidly becoming divorce material. He’s just lit up another fag right in front of me, in the same room. I am not amused. I need a bit of happiness blogging to make up for the bastard move on my sofa. So here’s a bit of a misc of good news.
1. Flat Richie is on the move againHave you caught up with his first stop? He arrived in Germany last week, and host Kate took the travelling shrine on a little outing in her home town. I’ll just snag one little picture here for illustration purposes, but please check her hilarious post HERE for more pics and insights.
If you are curious about what Kate chose from the package of goodies, you can see picture evidence and read more in a separate blog post HERE.
Also, I have been reliably informed by Kate, that Flat Richie is indeed on his way to the next host in the chain. We’re not saying where he is headed – except that it’ll take him a loooong way…
2. Flat Richie’s Log
If you have looked at Kate’s posts, you may have already seen some glimpses of the accompanying log book. In case you are curious what it looks like, I made a video flip-through for my junk journal-focussed Youtube channel.
Yeah, totally ignore that stupid voice!
I can’t wait to see what this journal will look like once it has travelled to all participants!
3. BS on RTE Player
I know, I already mentioned it in yesterday’s post. However, I think you ought to see the whole exchange between me and the RTE Player Twitter account. It appears that RTE Player is a member of the Armitage Army. Or how do you interpret this:
*fans herself* Spot on – “not enough Richard Armitage in life”. I mean, maybe I am making a mountain out of a mole hill, and yes, I know, RTE is hardly the biggest player [sic] in the market, but just to see an entertainment entity taking note of RA is just something that really, really thrills me. Hey, RTE, why don’t you collaborate with RA on a nice little Irish project? Or offer him a job reading
adult bedtime stories every night? You could have a hit on your hand with that… Just sayin’
4. Lastly – support a fellow fan
Many of our fellow fans are talented writers – quite a few of them published, too. And now another one is making that step to published author. I know Alyssa from my own early days in the fandom, and I am delighted to hear that she has finished her book and is now getting ready to have it published. Alyssa is somewhat “famous” in the fandom, having coined the phrase ‘I believe in Lucas North’ all the way back in 2013. She wrote a huge long post on Lucas North and the treatment he received by the writers. It’s a classic that every fan, new and old, should read at least once. So, in recognition of her contribution to the fandom, I have backed her kickstarter campaign – and if you have enjoyed her treatise on Lucas North, maybe you feel like contributing to her fundraiser, too.
Right, that’s it. Don’t forget to check the RAdvent CalendRA every morning!
