So Much to Squee Over

I had fun this past week trying to keep up with news while away for Thanksgiving (I haven’t forgotten you my lovelies who leave comments, I’ve just been enjoying some time at the beach). There was just so much amazing Hobbit and Richard Armitage related stuff. The interviews and the new photo. The fan encounter at the airport (thank you @KellyDuck for telling us your story on Twitter)!!!!! Then the photos of some of the cast arriving in New Zealand, our boy present and accounted for!

Every day seems to bring something  new and today has been no exception.

I love this article from The New Zealand Herald, where you can slide the images one way or the other to see the transformation that Bilbo and each of the dwarves went through to become the characters.

Then there was this image from Zealandia (such a lovely thing to wake up to)!!!


Bless his heart. Richard still appears to be trying to shrink down to the height of others…the wide stance, the slightly hunched shoulders. I can totally relate as I frequently find myself crouching from the knees trying to not tower over others in a photo. It endears me to him all the more.

Hopefully we’ll get some more news today! No, I’m not greedy, but while the irons hot…


If all of this Richard Armitage news is bringing you even the slightest bit of joy, why not think about giving something back? Join the Richard Armitage Gift Bombing. To learn more check out these posts from Jazzbaby1, Servetus and Judiang.

    Thanks for the mention. Hard to know what to do with all of this squee!

    I was very excited to see this today! I think the girl behind Richard is thinking to herself, “I wish he had his arm around me.” She has that wistful look on her face. Or maybe it isn’t his arm she is gazing at! 😉

    • LOL…I heard people saying they thought she was looking at his bum. Could totally be true. Or of course we could all be projecting what we would be doing if we were so close to him! 😉

        I think there would be quite a variety of comments, Jas! BTW thanks for all this new stuff! I think I’m drooling here. 😉

        • I’m sure there probably are quite a few different comments and interpretations, and that poor woman, if she ever sees what we all say will probably be horrified! 😉

          I’m sure I’m not the first to post this stuff and certainly won’t be the last. But the more times RA gets posted can only be a good thing!
