Today I had a lovely daydream about meeting Richard Armitage. I met him, somehow, and then, there we were, sitting on the bus from NYC to NJ where I live. Holding hands. I recollected myself and realized I had a big smile on my face. If only….
What I really love about Mr. Armitage, though, is his nerdiness. I don’t know if that’s a word, but I love that he just geeks out about Tolkien in interviews. Blah, blah, blah, about Tolkien and Thorin and the dwarves. LOVE IT!! I love that fans who talk to him find him so chatty about all things Tolkien. I am the same way. When someone asks me something about The Lord of the Rings I go blah, blah, blah, just like RA.
I love going to the New York Comic Con. The last few years it’s been held in October. I’m looking forward to it this year. I am wondering if anyone from The Hobbit will be there. I wrote and asked them. This is what they said:
“Thank you so much for reaching out regarding NYCC! I hope we’re able to deliver what you want for the show this year, especially with The Hobbit being so significant this year! Keep the suggestions coming as you have them and hopefully we’ll be able to build a great show for you and the other fans this coming October!”
Woo hoo! Maybe someone will be there!
Then there is RA’s musicality. Is that a word? He seems to just FEEL music. Me too!! I absorb music, I inhale music, I GROK music! All kinds of music. I don’t play any instruments, though. I never had the discipline or opportunity to learn. Except guitar, which I taught myself. I composed music on my guitar. Long time ago now. Still have the guitar, though! 😀
Nerdiness and musicality. Reasons to love RA. At least for me.
