Big man’s being QUITE active, for him, on Instagram lately. Have a look, if you haven’t already. He’s posted a reel from his boat! πŸ’™πŸ€πŸ’š

You will note two mugs in the cabin (I guess that’s what it’s called). I hate stereotypes, but one of them looks like the sort of mug a married woman would have. Apologies to Rory if that’s actually his mug and he’s hanging out with the Troon yacht harbor guy or just forgot to wash a mug. But I doubt either is what this is.

There seem to be a lot of fans still in denial about that. Oh well. Maybe one of these days he’ll actually admit it. I am still a little weirded out that he spent so many years going I AM SINGLE HERE I AM, LADIES and now he won’t even say he found someone. But he’s also gotten a lot more privacy-oriented over the last ten years or so. I’ll go out on a limb and guess that what he thought was a crazy amount of attention after The Book Group got ramped up to 11 after Game of Thrones and his brain sort of went into meltdown. If this amount of distance saves his sanity, I say go for it. Happy big man, good life. That doesn’t rhyme, but it’s true.

He seems to have struck up a bit of a friendship with Cary Elwes, who seems to also be in the Knuckles series, and I’m just fangirling all over the damn place. This time it was a comment about pirates on Rory’s boat post. 😍😍😍

Google Alerts are chock-full of Knuckles stuff. I heard the first episode is available free on YouTube now. Sometimes I am in places where I can stream but I’m not generally in the mood to watch anything extensive when I am. I’ll get around to it or I won’t. But actually, let me go find that for all of you in case you haven’t seen it. You’re welcome.

So if you haven’t ripped off my pics already, there’s another source for ya. (I don’t actually care about the ripping off of the pics. I’m just needlin’ ya.)

[EDIT] Wait, what? They took the video private. Well, I’ll leave it up for a while in case they make it public again. Sorry about that.

Oh, and going back to the private life for a minute. When Rory posted the reel he made some remark about how “the season” has begun. I feel this is one more piece of evidence that he is not living on the boat. There is every possibility he could be living there, and that he and the missus make it work, but given what I’ve heard about his net worth it would be weird if they didn’t have a house on land somewhere. And it may even be quite isolated. That would track with his general pattern.

I have to say that though I’m a little frustrated that he won’t even give us an update about his general situation, I also REALLY APPRECIATE that he protects her. Because be honest with yourselves, those of you who covet him: If he’d picked you, would you want his crazy fangirls coming after you? I would not want that for me. Fuck that. It also says something about him, and wholly in his favor, that he doesn’t seem to view his wife as a trophy as so many celebrity men seem to do. We missed a real gem, ladies. Darn it.

Okay. Am off. I might do some work on this today, actually. I’ve got a little time. I don’t know if you will be able to tell, but I’ll let you know.
