Hooray, A New Article About Richard

I wish WordPress provided me with the option of adding a sub title. Because that would be… Or: Smelly Dwarf and Smelly Doctor But I am jumping ahead. As the header says, we have a new article about Richard. Before I comment, here is the info: It’s a one page interview in a “sixty seconds…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #22

My weekend has started great – with a message from a work colleague I missed yesterday. My contract with my current best client has been doubled. More work, and better pay. Hooray. That is great news as all freelancers among you will understand. While I have always appreciated the freedom and flexibility that freelancing allows…

Toys Toys Toys

The bright side of fangirling – as quoted from my mission statement in the sidebar – demands a fluffy post every once in a while. No major content to see, just a bit of blabla on the occasion of me finally taking the plunge and replacing my old iPhone with a brand-spanking new one. It…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #20

Time flies when you are having fun (like discussing fandom with fellow fans). Or when you have things to do (like reorganising the bathroom shelves). Or when you have the first visitor in 15 months (socially distanced, with face mask and only for 30 minutes 😷). So I am only getting to compile the round-up…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #19

Many thanks first of all for the interesting comments and replies you left on my fandom post the other day. It is always interesting to hear your views on our fandom. There were many replies both here and on Twitter, and in some cases I was (unhappily) surprised to read about struggles and insecurities that…

Fascination Fandom

A couple of days ago I had a really interesting conversation. I am still wondering why it happened at all, but the context is this: My son is currently travelling in South Eastern Europe with a friend. Master Guylty was calling from the Greek island of Samothraki on Sunday, and by way of conversation I…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #18

An hour until Eurovision 2021. I might as well use the time to get this week‘s round-up out. Not that I am heavily invested in the song contest. I usually ignore it, but everything is different this year, so for the lack of better things to do, we are watching the music contest, not least…

RA Pocket Shrine 236/? – Woolly Wonder

The mail is taking ages these days. I’d already wondered whether this shrine had gone missing – which would’ve been even more terrible than any lost shipment. Because this was a little RAPS mood booster for a lovely fellow fan who is currently undergoing some health treatments. Another experiment with spraying a mint tin gold,…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #17

Esther is so right. She counted her blessings in her recent post, and so will I, briefly, today. Mr Guylty received his first jab yesterday. That is so much pressure off our backs for now. I was able to register for vaccination on Wednesday, but given the situation with the ransomware attack on the HSE…
