Sebastian, the talented cartoonist/fan fic author blogger at the “Gisborne’s Boy” blog, has a fun Christmas Contest Giveaway going on right now. Seba has made a bag with Sir Guy’s smirking face on it–and it has a nice long strap for easy carrying. This is such a fun idea! And it combines two of Seba’s loves–Richard Armitage’s Robin Hood character Sir Guy of Gisborne and creating useful products.
In order to enter the contest, you have to bare your soul and reveal what you think would be your most embarrassing moment were you ever in your wildest dReAms to meet the exquisitely talented and handsome British actor and storyteller, Richard Crispin Armitage. So be sure to visit Seba’s blog and submit your entry for your chance to win this fun bag. Entries must be submitted on Seba’s Gisborne’s Boy blog by Dec. 1st (Sweden timezone).
I am walking our cute beagle puppy Heidi in the park.
We’re enjoying the scenery, but she just won’t do her business (she won’t pee or poo).
Then a deep velvety voice behind me says, RA: “I love beagles! I had one growing up.”
I turn around and there is Richard Armitage–tall, beardless, shirt unbuttoned two buttons, and with his sleeves rolled up to reveal muscular forearms. I smile.
Before I can stop her, Heidi starts trying to jump into RA’s arms–my thoughts exactly, but she beat me to it. Ha!
Grati: “I’m so sorry. She likes people.”
RA: “I can see that.”
Grati: “Oh no!” Heidi leaks/pees all over RA’s expensive Italian leather loafers. “I’m so sorry.”
I offer him my water bottle to help wash off his shoes, but he waves me off and carries his shoes as he walks away–shaking his head with a bemused smile on his face.
Then again, a barefoot RA isn’t all bad. Ha!
Richard Armitage starred as Sir Guy of Gisborne in the BBC series Robin Hood that ran from 2006-2009. Here is the RANet career news page for the first series in 2006 http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/career/85.html

N.B. I have no idea whether or not Mr. Armitage had a beagle doggie as a pet while he grew up.
