has anyone else heard of richard armitage? i just discovered him in the bbc drama “north and south.”  where he plays john thornton (a disgruntled mill owner who is pretty much hotter than any person has a right to be). he also stars in the otherwise terrible mini-series, “robin hood”. where he is hot and bad. and also consistently rejected by that wench maid marian. for heaven’s sake, doesn’t she know hot when she sees it?

    Ok, Mavis, I’m in love! Thanks for introducing me to my new obsession–I’m so happy the public library’s got North and South AND Robin Hood. AND…that song is AWESOME! Now I’m obsessed with him, too. (Wiping up the drool now…)

    i’m glad it’s not just me. i find myself playing the first two seconds of that video over and over. “okay miranda, stop it. this is ridiculous.” but it can’t be helped. if i was thirteen this place could have a whole different decorating theme. kind of like my mother-in-law’s “viggo mortensen” sewing room. only the whole house. sigh.

    It’s more of a Lord of the Rings room with a little Hidalgo and King Arthur thrown in. Plus, of course, pictures of my bothers.

    I meant ‘brothers’, but it’s about the same thing.

    what! how could you megan? you have no soul. not to mention you probably think dave matthews is hot. no. sexy, dark and disgruntled is the only way to go. the eyeliner is a nice extra. 😉

    he’s too pointy. I like my celebrities more rounded.

    and yes i think dave matthews is hot. what’s wrong with you?

    daniel craig has about as much personality as a charging rhinoceros. now, guy of gisborne on the other hand, is all smirks and devilish charm. with enough man boob for even you.

    heck, those would even look good on me.

  10. 10 Angela February 27, 2009 at 3:49 pm

    I agree with Megan. Too pointy. Sorry…

  11. 11 Autumn February 27, 2009 at 4:10 pm

    Oooo Megan! Clive is …. round in such a good way.

  12. 12 mavis February 27, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    this is just wrong.

  13. 13 Auntie Megan February 27, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    he’d be less devilishly charming when you put out an eye on his nose.

  14. 14 mavis February 28, 2009 at 8:05 am

    did i mention that dave matthews is bald? and daniel craig will be far less fascinating once he goes the way of the guvernor. so you’d better watch it. richard armitage is hot and up to his nose in brooding good looks. all of england, i am sure, agrees.

  15. 15 Auntie Megan February 28, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    plus, he had to have had implants. those boobs are huge!

  16. 16 Misty February 28, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    Actually, I think they’re all yummy…and wouldn’t a personal Dave Matthews serenade be dreamy? Yum. Though I do like a brooder with dark hair and eyes and moooosles. And Mavis, you’ve got me hooked on David Fonseca and that song. He’s steamy.

    I love all the Elizabeth Gaskell miniseries (North and South, Wives and Daughters and Cranford). Richard Armitage is beautiful. In fact, it was hard to see him playing the bad guy in Robin Hood. I think one of the problems with Robin Hood is that the villians are hotter and more charismatic than the hero.

  19. 19 mavis March 27, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    i know, what were they thinking? if they had any sense they would turn things around by the end of the series. robin hood would be dead, guy would be hot *and* noble and nab an even hotter girlfriend than the one he ran through. as is, i can’t bear to watch it.
