Monday, Monday; or the Pot Stirs

Oh wait – I retired.  I don’t have to go to work.  (Sorry, had to rub it in once. I’ll be good now).

Returning to blogging again means dealing with – again.  The recent version is causing tech problems with subscriptions and postings.  Lovely.   If you’re having issues, please let me know.

I’m baffled to have acquired new subscribers in my absence.  Don’t have a clue why that happened.  So, hello New Readers!  This blog is parts irreverence, snark, stream of consciousness, and a showcase for sojourns into fiction and drawing.  It’s brought out the contrary and perverse side of my nature, so expect much pot stirring to ensue.  I even gleefully point out the emperor wears no clothes, even if he’s a certain British actor.  Please remember that I try to do so with love and humor.  I aim to remind fans that we are here to enjoy our crush and each other, and not take him, fandom, and ourselves too seriously.

Speaking of not taking RA too seriously, there’s a six month backlog of things I’m dying to say about him: the premiere and DVD release press junkets, his new groomed persona, his … interesting… utterances – Richard Armitage 3.0.  Then there’s the fans’ reactions – both old and new ones.  It’s a veritable treasure trove of things from which to pick.  However, one of the downsides of having too many options is indecisiveness.  I don’t know where to start.

So, Dear Reader, what would you like me to tackle first? Are you dying to hear my opinion about something? Please keep it simple; my brain can’t handle meta at the moment.

Oh, here’s another pic.  I know what you come here for.

  1. I am with you. The blogs are more fun to be part of when we don’t take the matters you mentioned too seriously. It’s nice to be able to relax and be part of each post.
    Best wishes during retirement. Make the best of it!

  2. Hi Judiang,
    it would seem that maybe, possibly I am one of your new readers. 🙂 Got steered here by a tweet conversation with lady0akenshield, am making my way through various parts of your blog and am enjoying it very much, thank you. Common ground is – of course – that certain Brit. Besides that, anything goes.

    PS: Today is a holiday here, but I am due back at work after 2 weeks sick leave tomorrow. *sighs* That will curb my reading/browsing activities and I am already feeling the pre-grump.

    • Welcome Bruni! Glad you’re enjoying the blog. Make yourself at home. Sorry to hear about the sick leave. Hope you’re fine now.

      • Thank you. 🙂 Hopefully, I am getting there. You said it very well: baby steps. But hey, it’s better than the alternative. All I have to figure out now is how to get around the ban on reading blogs at work. 😉 RA is too good a medicine to pass up on.

  3. Good to see your posts!!!
    Cheers/slainte – and what is the Russian toast? 😀 Anyone?

    (We’re not gloating or anything … honest … ok, maybe just a little tiny bit. 😉 )
    You know me … I’m just here for the view — and what a magnificent view it is, definitely worth the climb. And the people. And some fun.

    Good to see you writing again, Judi! 🙂 What would I like to read? How about a mini The Man story?

    • Oh no, we’re not gloating. Not a all. Nope. Not a chance. 😉

      The Man, you say? Hmm. I’ve gotten several *private* requests for him. Is he really still VERBOTEN? 😉

  5. Judi,
    I am not a new reader and have been reading your blog for around 2 years and decided to make my life easier by subscribing to your blog. I would go to Me+Richard and link to your blog to see if you had posted, I tend sometimes not to do things the easy way. I have enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to more. I also like the pictures of Richard too.

    • Welcome to commenting Katie! Sorry it’s taken me so long replying. I’m a bit backlogged. I appreciate your support by reading my blog. So glad you’re enjoying my off the wall posts. And thanks so much for commenting. Look forward to more. 🙂

  6. Did someone say chest hair?
    I have taken my place in lurk-dome. But still loving your blog. Glad we are still not taking it toooooooo seriously.

    • Gracie, don’t lurk! Help me stir the pot around here. So happy you’re still loving it. I’ve still got it! 😉
