Richard Armitage Get-Well Card

I now want to share with you something Susan made for me when I was sick at the end of last semester. It ranks high on the list of best gifts I've ever received and is an example of Susan's shining awesomeness.

First a little bit of background information . . .

Susan, two of our friends from school, and I have a running group conversation on Facebook called "Richard Armitage Floats our Goat."* We mostly use it to spam each other with Richard Armitage pictures and gifs when we really should be writing papers.

Sometime in November, I caught the flu despite my flu shot, high vitamin intake, and tendency to drink tea until I can hear my insides slosh. I felt wretched, but didn't have the time to rest up until I felt better.

To make me feel better, Susan made me the most epic get-well card I think I will probably ever receive and posted it in the "Richard Armitage Floats our Goat" conversation for us all to enjoy.


Here it is for your well-being and delight:

Oh no, you're sick.

Richard Armitage Guy Gisbourne
Damn influenza.

Richard Armitage sword
Hold on while I kill it for you with my sword.

Richard Armitage sexy
What do you mean, that's not how influenza works?


Richard Armitage bow arrow
Okay, I'll shoot it instead.


Richard Armitage pensive
That didn't work either. Hmm. Admire my profile while I think about what to do.

Richard Armitage Guy of Gisbourne
What's that, you say?

Of course I would do that. Anything to save you.

For you, milady.



May Richard Armitage's hotness cure all your ills.
Have a healthy day :)

* If you don't get the goat thing see this post for an explanation. If you don't know who Richard Armitage is, you need to climb out from under your rock. Like, Right Now. But, as an excuse for posting more Richard pics, he is best known for his recent role as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit. 


Though we prefer him without prosthetic on his lovely face.

  1. Thanks a lot, Susan, for raising the "get well" card bar impossibly high for the rest of us.
    And also, just thanks a lot. *appreciates the bar*

  3. This might be one of the best things I've ever seen. It's making me want to watch NORTH AND SOUTH, like right now. Nice work Susan (ahem, and Richard)!

  6. In my house he's best known for being totally swoonworthy in NORTH AND SOUTH. ;-) I think I need a John Thornton fix stat.

    P.S. Love the card!

  8. That was an awesome card.. And got from under the rock just now and thanks for the help ;-) And this guy is awesome, why didn't someone tell me about him before? Well, I live in India and I am not good with 'your' actor updates, although when you said Hobbit, I was like 'oh, I did I miss this'.. :)
