So it’s been over a week since I posted anything here! It’s always a hectic time of year for me, and a bit of a rollercoaster. Last week I had to travel for a veterinary conference, and I’ve been occupied with a quilting project on my off time. This weekend I had to navigate a sticky situation involving a bit of holiday resentment between my Mom and Hubby’s mother. And then I had to help Mom frantically clean her house in preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving get-together. This is because Mom and I mutually employ an occasional housecleaner, who was supposed to come and clean in advance of company, but we learned over the weekend that she had been arrested and charged with a felony (grand larceny from a house), which didn’t inspire confidence, even if she does get out of jail in time to clean for Mom. Damn it all! Mom and I both wished she’d gotten herself arrested AFTER Thanksgiving, but oh well.
On to Richard! Well I confess I couldn’t help but speculate a bit on the good old Are They or Aren’t They Question when a fan helpfully mentioned @RCArmitage and @leepace in the same tweet. Is Lee Pace generally “too shy” to do photo-ops with fans, or was he hoping to keep his evening with Richard in Berlin on the down-low, given the popularity/notoriety of that ship? If so, that didn’t work out so well for him, did it?
From the barrage of questions tweeted at her, it sounds like both actors were very gracious, and certainly Richard was his typical kind and obliging self, agreeing to stop and take the picture when not at any kind of official event. Gotta love him for his general fan-friendly attitude.
I don’t know whether I’ve ever publicly said anything about this topic, but certainly I’ve thought about it on occasion. For me, it hardly matters except as a curiosity. It does seem that they are in a committed relationship of one kind or another- either really good friends who try to get together when schedules permit, or more. I warned you in the title this post would contain speculation… but I think I’ll leave it at that.
Today I saw a tweet that appears to have a cameraman in the background and claims to be “filming” for Berlin Station. If so, this may be our first glimpse of Daniel Meyer (or is it Daniel Miller? Sources conflict!) and I confess it was a look that I wouldn’t be surprised to see on RA as RA… ball cap, hoodie, snug jeans, and converse-type shoes. I had for some reason expected a CIA analyst to be dressed in a suit or maybe in more nerdy gear, but maybe he’s undercover as a… well… a regular guy
with nice thighs on the street.
I’m seriously in favor of that line of stubble along his cheekbone. And I really dig the determined look in his eye in the closer photo. Dayum. I think it’s safe to say that Berlin Station is going to have its share of eye-candy. I love it when he gets that serious face. Thinking dark thoughts under that hat brim. I’d like a lot more of that. Please.
By the way, it looks like aside from Richard Armitage and Lee Pace, some other pretty big Hollywood names are in Berlin at the moment. Brad Pitt and Matt Damon….
And finally… speculations on the bike. This image was tweeted a few days ago in association with the Berlin Station production, and I think it’s Richard riding as Richard. However, was he testing out a bike he’ll be using later? Will Daniel Meyer/Miller be riding a bike? The costume above certainly wouldn’t preclude some bike riding, and I couldn’t help but notice there was a toppled bike in the background on some of those Getty Images. Coincidence?
Anyway, kind of a fluff-filled post, wasn’t it? I’ll try to think of something a little deeper once I’ve had a little more time to process those thighs. =)
