My summer has been filled with
t-ball games, swimming lessons, family reunions,
a 10 year high school reunion (lame!), weed-pulling and lawn mowing,
freckling and sun-burning (stupid spray sunscreen does not work as well as
the lotion), fishing, hiking and picture-taking.
Oh, and a little squeeeee-ing too,
like the rest of you. ;)
Seeing the dwarfs (THORIN!) in costume.
My husband and I are big Tolkien fans.
None of our extended family will play "Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit" with us any more
because we kick their trash. (Wow... I sound like the biggest nerd EVER right now, don't I?)
Anyway, I showed him the above photo and the first thing he said was,
"The guy in the middle looks too tall to be a dwarf."
(I assured him it was a perspective thing) followed by,
"What's up with the pretty boy dwarf on the far right?"
I was waiting for some sarcastic comment about my "boyfriend,"
but he didn't recognize Richard! I felt rather smug about that...
like the "smug man at the party."
Seeing photos/vids of Richard and his fluffy beard
at the "Captain America" premiers. (I haven't seen the film yet,
but hope to remedy that situation this weekend.)
Richard doing the piercing stare of hotness,
while bearded, with open collar!
I think he's trying to read our minds.
Maybe if I look at the photo while wearing sunglasses,
my thoughts will feel a bit safer.
Nope... didn't work!
Did anyone else clap their hands with joy
when they found out one of "our" video/graphic queens, Heather,
was able to photograph AND MEET The Armitage in person!? I did!
I was so happy with the news, you'd have thought I met the guy myself!
(Except, if I had met him, I wouldn't be standing there all cute and dignified like Heather...
how in heaven's name did she contain herself!?!)
Just between us, I've heard from reliable sources that this photograph is cropped
to hide the fact that Heather was pinching his peaches.
JUST KIDDING... I made that up. :)
You can read about Heather and DiL's experience meeting Richard HERE.
I'm glad she mentioned she's the one who designed the Havoc Tour t-shirt...
but it would have been hilarious if she'd mentioned her Sexy Back videos too. haha!
Although only one of you may appreciate this topic... (what up, Traxy?)
I saw the final Harry Potter film a few weeks ago. I love the books and enjoyed the movie.
(Have I already mentioned my nerdiness in this post? I did? Just checking. )
Besides the 3 main characters- Harry, Ron and Hermione,
my favorite character is Severus Snape.
I recently started thinking of the similarities between Snape
and my favorite misunderstood underdog, Gisborne.
* Both had a rough childhood and were bullied by others.
Time sure flies...
it seems like yesterday this blog was
a cute little newborn, and now it's a loud,
chubby toddler. :)

I shall now return to being on hiatus...

for something simple, yet smile-worthy.
