I think you may have guessed by now that I like my man beardless. Although, a little stubble is nice for exfoliation kissing–it is a sensual way to jumpstart one’s skin care regimen. Of course, I am speaking about my hubby. Ha!
But speaking of faces, today Armitage World has started spinning the other direction again as pictures of a beardless–let me say that again, BEARDLESS–Richard Armitage surfaced in several places. And if you’re only just now hearing about and seeing a beardless RA in reading this blog post, you must live under a rock! Ha!
Here are two blog posts that shared their first hand accounts of meeting Richard Armitage:
1) The Armitage Daily gives the Twitter recaps of Richard Armitage related articles that include the label #Richard Armitage. The articles are collected by Traxy of The Sqeee. On August 16, 2012 The Armitage Daily shared a link to an essay from a C19proboards posting of RALover’s account of meeting Richard Armitage on the set of his tornado movie in Detroit, Michigan under the post title “Category 6 related sightings”:
To the right is one of RALover’s stunning pictures of Richard Armitage that was shared on the C19 proboard site link above! Now be sure that you sit down, before you fall down in a swoon. Sighhhhh! *TTHHUUDD* (I bounced!)
2) And the Do I Have A Blog? blogger, ItsJSforMe also got to meet Richard Armitage that same afternoon and has a lovely account of it with pictures, too, yesterday (August 16, 2012):

Here is my comment to ItsJSforMe on her blog after reading her amazing essay!
I am squeeeeeeeeing as I sit here reading your adventure in meeting Richard Armitage!
Oh Dear! How do I tell my hubby that squeeeeing doesn’t mean what he thinks it means? No clean up involved. Giggles!
Thanks so much for sharing your story and pictures!
Cheers! Grati ;->
And what is made clear in both RALover’s and ItsJSforMe’s accounts of meeting Richard Armitage is how genuinely gracious and warm a person he truly is–particularly stepping out to meet them, posing for pictures, and answering a few questions.
Of course, I always say that Richard Armitage is true gentleman. Sighhhhh!
Now dear readers, I know that I embraced Richard Armitage’s Thorin Oakenshield beard for The Hobbit–he does look so smoulderingly handsome with it–and I will love him as Thorin when The Hobbit films are released. But RA’s clean shaven look is so much more devastatingly handsome to me. Seeing Richard Armitage’s bare face–chin, jawline, lips, nose, neck, ears–unfettered by beard hair, I am, wait for it, just a puddle of womanly essence right now. Sighhhhh!
P.S. And folks, you’re just lucky that I didn’t go with my first post title idea: “Richard Armitage is NAKED Again! YESSSSS!” Ha!
