Douglas/Martin: Strip poker

(as prompted by kcanevari.)

 "And my flush beats your straight!“ Douglas declared as he revealed his hand. "Bad luck Martin.”

Martin squeaked indignantly and stamped his bare feet in frustration. “But, but- you must be cheating! Counting cards or something!”

A chuckle from Douglas. “Like I would need to count cards to beat you. Martin, I am a master of poker in all its various incarnations, whereas you are- not quite such a master.”

At this, Martin scowled, folding his arms over his bare chest. “This is preposterous! I- I barely have anything left!”

Douglas shot the other man a sly grin. “I told you, if you’d detached the gold braid from your hat, there would have been enough of it to count as a separate article of clothing. You should have listened.”

It's Official

I’m seeing more Ben Wishaw on tumblr than Benedict Cumberbatch. I would be ever so grateful if I could say. “It’s official. Roger Allam is all over tumblr." 

I shall have to work on that. 

Care for a drink while you plaster me all over tumblr, Kathy? Why, I don’t mind if I do, Roger!

Welcome aboard! It’s a pleasure to have you here and I hope you enjoy your stay! If you look out the window to your left, you’ll see beautiful blue skies. If you look out the window to your right, you’ll see various depictions of sheep. Have no fear! There’s nothing wrong with the windows. It’s just a personal touch to the aircraft that’s kind of hard to explain.

If there’s ever anything I can help you with, please feel free to ring your little bell and I’ll do my very best to assist you.

In all seriousness, hi. *waves*

Traveling Lemon Alert

I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday. Upon entering the elevator to leave the building, I noticed a very lemony smell. It didn’t smell lemony when I got there, so I figured that perhaps in the meantime someone cleaned the elevator with lemon-scented cleaner. I happened to look down and in a corner was a lemon, kinda squashed, just sitting there! I had no choice but to say in a very loud voice “I found the lemon! I won!” Nobody else was in the elevator, which was probably best. I think I may have won the world’s only game of traveling elevator lemon!

I'm Bored

A tennis player who won something is all over tumblr today. I don’t watch tennis. Or follow sports. Nor do I think he’s particularly handsome. And I know you’re all like:

Oh my giddy fuck did she say she doesn’t like the tennis dude?????

So, I declare this Roger Allam Sunday and here’s a treat for you all. A double dose of Roger yumminess!

And there go my followers:

True Story

I was watching my husband play the original Legend of Zelda last night, which is his favorite video game. But he beat all the levels and was just going around collecting jewels. Then he turned to me and said, just like this, “I. Am. Bored.”

So, naturally, I said, “Bored. Bored. Bored. Bored. Bored.”

I do a wicked Roger Allam voice.

He said, “That’s from one of your things, isn’t it?”

Like Cabin Pressure is a thing. Philistine.

You’re all fabulous!

Thank you

I would like to thank my followers for, well, following me. I read about people having thousands of followers. I have 37. And ya know what? That’s amazing to me. Because my blog has no theme, it’s isn’t personally designed, I just blog what I like, and still people are interested in what I have to say. So, thanks everyone. I’m just here for the fun….and the Roger Allam. Here, have some young Roger in “Between the Lines” (1994):

What's in a name

So, I decided that Martin will keep Crieff and add Richardson; Martin Crieff Richardson. Without a hyphen. This way, he stays true to himself but still adopts the Richardson name. Everyone was right - Douglas would never give up his name. But Martin should be proud to be Crieff because, even though he wouldn’t think of it this way, he’s accomplished a lot to be proud of as a Crieff. So, I have the next story to finish and the I’m working on the wedding. I know I’ll cry - I always cry at weddings!

Question for Y'All

I am asking this on tumblr because I swear you’re all computer wizards. And I always get great answers from you guys. So, does anyone use google chrome? You know when you click the chrome icon on your tool bar and it opens and you’re faced with the google chrome page that has pictures for links? How can you get ride of those? The picture that’s up for my tumblr link is NSFW for some GD reason. I want to get rid of it or change it. Any ideas how? They do change but this one has been up for absolute centuries. Thanks!

Thank You!

I have 27 followers, which is amazing to me. And I thank each and every one of you for taking this journey with me! If I could draw, I would thank you with a picture to show my gratitude. But I can’t, so I will thank you, instead with Roger Allam, which actually means more to me than anything I could draw from my own imagination. :)

Thank you, thank you, dear followers!!
