♥ Welcome to the ninth day of Guyness! ♥
We are now on day 9 of our 12-day celebration of Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne.
Today’s screencap was contributed and made by beengizzied. Her image comes from Robin Hood season 2 episode 9.
Beengizzied suggested the following caption, from comedian Dennis Miller:
Santa is very jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live.
Also, beengizzied wrote this holiday poem, posted here with permission:

Thanks so much for your contributions, beengizzied. Aussie Guy must be very tired after all that!
Now let’s go to the Medieval movies. Do you remember The Flintstones? The modern stone-age family! I really enjoyed that cartoon and it must’ve been fun for the writers and animators to come up with the cool gadgets they used. A bird’s bill was a record player needle. And the bird was still attached, LOL ! Dinosaurs were were used as heavy machinery. The list goes on and on. What was your favorite part of The Flintstones?
For today’s project, I made my first slideshow. It’s from the Middle Ages. Check it out and see if you agree.
The screencaps used in this slideshow are courtesy of beengizzied and RichardArmitageNet.Com. This is a one-piece project so I am making the video available for download in MP4 format. Here’s the download link:
Although we seem to share a lot of common history, I have a game I made up as a child that I’ve never heard of anyone else playing. I called this game “home movie.” All it requires is a flashlight, a darkened room, and at least 2 people.
Here’s how you play: Turn off the lights because the room needs to be very dark. One person is the actor, another person is the projectionist and everyone else is the audience. The actor dances around using big movements while the projectionist turns on the flashlight, points it at the actor and shakes it very rapidly. The actor will look like he or she is in an old-fashioned movie. I didn’t know about frames per second back then, but the faster the projectionist shook the flashlight, the more realistic the “movie.”
Feel free to try this at home! Probably not safe for work, LOL!
Have fun playing around! See you tomorrow. 🙂
