I will admit it. I've dreamed of meeting Richard. I've imagined exactly what I would say, how I would act...and how I would NOT act. I'm sure that if my wish of meeting him came true, I would fall apart and forget how to speak, or I would talk so fast that he wouldn't understand what I was saying. I would like to think I could keep it together, but knowing my luck, I would make a fool of myself, and polite though I know he would be, he would probably think I'm a lunatic. But the chances of ever meeting him are pretty much nil.
Or are they?
We all know that RA will likely be doing promotional work in the US when "The Hobbit" premieres next year. There will be big events in major cities, most likely New York and Los Angeles. He'll be promoting on talk shows and such. But there is a slight possibility that he'll actually be a place a bit more accessable, at least for me.
I will explain...
Just outside of Chicago, (Where I grew up) there is a unique movie theater venue called "Hollywood Boulevard" and their sister theater, "Hollywood Palms." It is a fantastic place to see a show. You can order dinner and have a drink while you see your movie, and the building itself is worth the price of admission. So much to see, you need a camera. If you're ever in the Chicagoland area, you really should visit.

Who will they have for "The Hobbit" premiere? It isn't likely they will get Martin Freeman or Sir Ian McKellan, but is there a chance they could book *Gasp* Richard Armitage??
It's not altogether out of the realm of possibilities. They've had some of the biggest names in Hollywood in their venue, including...
I won't list them all, as it would take too long. But to make a long story short, they deliever the star power. So maybe, just maybe, they'll manage to get a certain dwarf? I've already been in contact with them, trying to figure out who they will get (And making a certain suggestion.) So far, they say it's too far in advance to tell. But they can be sure, they haven't heard the last of me. I'll be making inquiries over the coming months, and I will definately keep everyone updated as to what their plans are.
Maybe they'll get the hint that a Thorin meet and greet would be a TREMENDOUS success. Maybe I'll finally know if I can keep it together.
A girl can dream, right? :)
