On Thursday, November 27th, 2014-all day long, all time zones, pop in when you can–we are hoping that those who wish to, might “virtually” share in this very unofficial, come when you can, but hopefully fun Richard Armitage Fan Friends Thanksgiving Dinner potluck meal on Facebook and here on this blog.
As an aside, I was trying to find some plum pudding–a Grati family holiday food staple from our Brit ancestors–the food is really a dense chocolate cake with raisins, rum, etc. But I ended up with something the Brits refer to as spotted dick. How appropriate. Ha! Oh well, I’ll make my usual brown sugar glaze for it which will probably neutralize any taste differential.
This RA Fan Friends Thanksgiving Dinner event is an “open” invitation. So feel free to invite your RA Friends whom I might not know to invite on Facebook and elsewhere. The more the merrier. Or if you or your RA Fan friends are not on Facebook, this blog post will also serve as an unofficial RA Fan Friends Thanksgiving Dinner party hub.
And though the tradition of “Thanksgiving” was initiated in the US with the Pilgrims, in the 1600’s, the concept of breaking bread together in sharing is universal. And though we live near and far, we are all friends across the miles.
So if you are “coming” to the virtual (and unofficial) Richard Armitage Fan Friends Thanksgiving Dinner, please share 3 things:
1) describe what virtual side dish of food that you will bring as your contribution, the turkey is provided; notice Richard Armitage portraying John Mulligan in Moving On: Drowning, Not Waving (image right via RANet) has his fork at the ready for something delicious. Oh to be the fork! Purrrr!
2) which Richard Armitage character (or himself) is your “date” (pictures welcome); and
3) what “thanks” or blessings that you wish to share;
After “our virtual meal” on Thursday (starting at 10am CST, Chicago time), we might play some parlor games–such as an RA Trivia Contest . So check back for trivia question polls on Thursday at the bottom of this post. Brush up on your Richard Armitage knowledge–also known as Armitagnosis–for the RA Trivia Contest–which can include RA pictures.
Other ideas are welcome for sharing in our day together.
So either visit other RA Fan Friends on Facebook to RSVP, share your 3 things, and to play along:
Or, you may leave your RSVP, three things, and to play along in a comment below on Wednesday and/or Thursday.
P.S. And while you are online anyway over the next three days (through early Friday), please remember to vote often for Richard Armitage in Round 4 of the BBC Anglophenia Favorite Man of 2014 contest. Richard Armitage has fierce competition from the DT fans. Go Global Team Armitage! (FYI. I changed the RA portrait on my graphic to more of a stubbly chin portrait. Sighhhh!)
Richard Armitage Thanksgiving Trivia Contest (with new questions on the even numbered hours throughout the day)
2:30pm CST (after my dinner–which was yummy!)

This brings to a close our Thanksgiving fun. Thanks for participating either here on my blog or on Facebook. We really should make a cookbook of recipes from all of your wonderful side dish suggestions.
Hoping you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Love, Hugs, & Cheers! Grati ;->
