Yes, so as you know, we’re super busy and I’m getting down to the line, leaving for Vacation in just about 48 hours… my PreoccupationWithArmitage has been comparatively non-existent. So much so that I’d actually forgotten, until Perry pointed it out, that there was the annual Richard Armitage Christmas message to be anticipated, and although I now remember seeing a tweet from Richard himself that he was narrating a short piece for Audible, I’d apparently forgotten about that, too.
This morning, I’d slept in a bit, and when I woke up, reached for my phone. There was a Twitter notification from @RCArmitage and, because my PreoccupationWithArmitage is down but not defeated entirely, it was the first thing I opened on the phone. A link to a free holiday promotion for members… 3 hours and 42 minutes, a Charles Dickens Christmas short story, The Chimes. And narrated by none other than the most talented narrator with the most deeply sexy voice that I have ever known!
I tell you, it was as if I’d received an early Christmas gift, and one I’d always wanted, and because I stumbled upon it from His tweet first, it actually felt like a gift from him to me!!!!
Re-energized me and gave me quite the Armitage Boost, which I’ve needed but not known I’d needed! I’m so happy to have discovered it this way- glad RA or his team was on the ball with that tweet. Now that I’m up and about, I see that there are a myriad of ways I could have found out about it, including blog mentions, forums, and even an e-mail from Audible with a link to open my “Free Holiday Gift For Our Members”.
It just felt special to find out about it from Richard, himself.
It’s downloading as we speak! I know what I’ll be listening to as I pack those suitcases today!!
