Goodness me! If this pandemic doesn’t stop soon, I’ll go bankrupt over all the audio books that Richard is churning out.
I had rather hoped that his hinted at “special something” was a tiny little freebie, but ok, I am curious about the Chekhov short stories. Mind you, I *do* think it smarts a tiny bit, being offered another Chekhov after the previous Chekhov had somehow been “taken away” from us by the circumstances. Also, whatever happened to the children’s books recommendations that RA asked for? I somehow had it in my mind that he was going to release something in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital? But their fundraiser “2.6 Challenge” has come and gone, and I didn’t see an audio book or anything? Curious. – I’m afraid, I feel a little bit burnt by the débacle over the announced and retracted Poirot audio books. So I have only put the Chekhov stories in my wish list, not pre-ordered.
Time for another question from the Distraction Challenge!
What’s your favourite kiss?
Ok, alright, so that’s not what was asked for. A kissssss from the oeuvre. I’ll ignore the obvious answer and settle for this:
I think that is up there with the NS kiss, don’t you think? One of the few redeeming things about season 9. Season 9? What season 9?
I was going to embed a Lucas North/Maya video here, but unfortunately they all end with tragedy. So, no. What is nice about that kiss, is the gentleness and the slowness. Not one of those madly passionate liplocks but something far more realistic when the two characters have only just met again. Well, and Lucas is clever. He knows how to persuade an understandably reluctant woman. Well played, Armitage, well played. – There you go – dreamy subject of the day ticked.
PS: Am I the only one who thinks that Armitage has the most gorgeous sideburn-hairline *ever*? It’s just so perfectly formed… Unfortunately now overgrown by the shrubbery. Just another reason to petition for some lawn manicure!
