BBC America is looking for the British Man of 2014 and is holding an online voting battle:
So, yesterday I open a link from somewhere and I am presented with this impossible choice:
I have loved Colin Firth since Pride & Prejudice aired on the BBC in the fall of 1995 (guess that shows my age)! And I have loved Richard Armitage since I saw North & South on DVD in the spring of 2006! And while, yes, at the moment I am a little more obsessed with Armitage, Firth is still deeply anchored in my heart!! So, this is truly a difficult choice for me! Luckily you can vote as often as you want to – so I have voted twice: one vote for each man! And no, I won’t vote over and over again, I prefer to do other things with my time. Besides, it wouldn’t influence the outcome anyhow because for every 10 votes I give the one, I give the same amount of votes to the other…
Anyway, it looks like Armitage is winning this one – more of an online following with his Armitage Army, I guess. I just wish BBC America hadn’t put these two up against each other so early on in the competition – they both deserve a last round spot!
Well… no matter who wins, here’s a toast to my two favourite British men!
