Several years ago I used to really enjoy going to IMDb.com and checking out “Born Today.” I didn’t do it everyday, but it was still fun to see what celebs had birthdays when. When I became a Richard Armitage fan I started checking on his birthday to see if he’d make the main/home page. Last year I was hopeful, after all he had been in Captain America and had The Hobbit coming out. No such luck, I had to click on “see all birthdays” and he was of course there, but just one name among the many listed.
It’s a silly little thing, but it just one more thing to add the list of changes a year can make!
Okay, so I don’t actually know how long it’s been referred to as Armitage Day. But it is Richard Armitage’s birthday and he is 42! 😉 Which means it’s time for celebration, cake, booze and thanks to my reemerging creativity (thanks thyroid meds) a little graphic I cooked up:
Wherever you are today, I hope you get to celebrate with friends and loved ones, Mr. A! Happy Birthday!!! (Not that I think you will actually see this blog post.)
P.S.–I know there’s a typo in the book. Let’s call it an homage to my favorite actor and his own occasional typing mistakes! 😉
…Happy 32nd birthday, Tom Hiddleston!
Ten points if you can guess which of his movies inspired my choice of cake for the graphic. 😉
