I have reached the age when I’m not really into receiving presents. Shocking, I know. But if you want to give me something, please make it a useful item like hand lotion, or hot chocolate, or more hand lotion–consumables are definitely the way to go with me. I don’t need any more stuff–especially if it has to find a place to sit or if it has to be dusted.
As I type, I’m looking at the clear plastic storage bin that will soon house my exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage and The Hobbit film trilogy memorabilia–cups, magazines, books, etc. At least I hope that they will all fit into one bin. Ha! Mind you, this bin won’t be packed away to be forgotten. But rather, the bin will sit in a handy corner for accessing–precluding the need for the aforementioned dusting. Snap!
But Christmas is upon us in two days. And I can’t help becoming a little giddy and giggly. And though I feel an intoxicating rush, it is not due to any spirits, because I don’t indulge–though come to think of it, it might be a blood sugar high. Ha! However, if I had my fondest wish–apart from world peace, health and prosperity for all, education and equality for women, safety and cherishing of our children, etc.–it would be for one sparkling moment to be the ingénue with the hourglass figure (when my figure can often be referred to by fruit, apples, pear, etc.), the fun, ladylike, and sassy woman who gets the tall dark and handsome shy man, in all of his many character incarnations, to dance the night away with me. Yes, that is a metaphor. And once is not enough. Ha!
You see, All I want for Christmas is You, Richard Armitage

Richard Armitage – All I Want For Christmas
Now if only someone would update this video to include some lovely Thorin, Proctor, and more current Richard Armitage images such as these below, I would be a very happy lady. Sighhhh!
P.S. As my good friend Kitty would say. Gawd! Richard Armitage is one gorgeous hunk of talented man! *THUD* But alas, Richard, I already have a tall, dark, and handsome man–though my hubby swears that I must be wearing love goggles. Ha! So my fantasizing about you will have to be relegated to my storytelling–where anything can happen. *blushes* But I will still look for you under my Christmas tree, just in case. *wink*
P.S. Update 7:26am CST: I got my wish!!!!! Thanks to Fernanda Matais for pointing me to Richard Armitage’s 2014 Christmas Message to his fans! RA’s tweet link appears below (his portrait right, by Sarah Dunn that he also shared):
