2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

Before we get to the round-up, I have to rescue a Kathy Ode from the comments. Did you see this? I think that is another one of Kathy’s gems that looks straight into the heart of the fangirl 😉. Sorry, what did you say???? Right, let’s go to the round-up. It needed a new header.…

Misheard Movie Quotes

My friend Abby posted a tweet the other day about the lockdown stage where you are in “spouse chews loudly” phase. Touché. Although the lockdown phases in my house also manifest in other ways. Imagine my surprise this morning, for instance, when Mr Guylty suddenly and without any prior introduction starts suggesting things I could…

RA Pocket Shrine 180/? – Fast Food

For all my Big Mama Bear histrionics, I am sometimes a right booby. The number of cells active in my brain seems to develop inversely proportional to the number of years I am clocking up in life. Sometimes I wonder whether I am actually suffering from early on-set Alzheimer. But then I remember that I…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

We are in week 20 of the year, and this is the 16th round-up on my blog. I’ve missed a few instalments, and I am annoyed with myself. After last year’s Christmas blog tsunami (aka the 12 days of raffle fun), I had decided to ramp up the frequency and blog a bit more. At…

Fan Fiction Frenzy

2017 Armitage Weekly Round-up #32

Last weekend I was unable to compile the weekly round-up – which means that we have a longer list this week. Just about the best time to catch up, as today is the BS preview at the Paleyfest in Beverly Hills – which means we will hopefully get new press pics from the carpet, as well…

RA Challenge ♡ #10: Saddest Moment

I’m really drawing this out by posting individual questions per day. Some of the other up-takers have already progressed much further down the line. At least it gives me light relief on a day like today when I am – ironically – working while Europe takes a day off for Labour Day… Mind you, the relief…

RAPS in Retrospect – Part 1 [John Proctor]

Today is one of those days. Do you know that feeling when you get up and you *know* that something is off and that the whole day is going to less-than-optimal? Thursday is my deadline day, it is *always* busy, if not downright frantic, so I need this day to run on “optimum smooth”. But: I…
