The thing about my Grandad is that I love him because he is my Grandad but he is utterly and without doubt The Most Boring Man In The World.

As in, ludicrously, unrealistically, Father-Ted-Priest-Of-The-Weekly BORING.

Today he spent a large portion of our family afternoon tea attempting to get to the bottom of why the company that make the microwave proof dish he steams vegetables in do not put a comprehensive list of steaming times on their website.

My dear departed Granny had the patience of a saint.

Oh, and memo to my uterus - look, it's going to be a tough four years, we need to stick together, the least you could do is agree with me as to when our regular monthly playdate takes place.

Thumb is out of splint, woohoo! Am actually typing with all of both hands for the first time in a month!

In even better news, due to thumb meaning I can't drive, Mum took me to see Rogue One yesterday, really enjoyed it, has spent the afternoon browsing the cast list squeeing about what other things she's seen people in, and wants to watch the original trilogy with me and my brother.

We'll make a geek out of her yet.

Tomorrow I'm going shopping in Cambridge, where I shall buy some books to celebrate my being able to, y'know, hold books.

Well, I broke my thumb a month ago and tomorrow I get told if I can take the splint off or have to spend another month in it, so, seems about as good a time as any to get back into long form blogging...

...which is nice.

Our acting head of finance seemed to think I should be jumping for joy that other people were likely to lose theirs because my team is so good, which, really, management.

And they haven't shown us any clear plan for how the new-look department will look, but hey, even if it sucks, at least I'll still have a payslip while I look elsewhere.

So long as any desk they move me to has sufficient pinboards for my Captain America pictures, I'm easy

It's amazing how lazy tumblr has made me. I literally don't know what to talk about if I don't have a pic or gifset to riff off. Back when I had an LJ it used to be mostly fandom with a bit of personal, do I want to go back to that?

Keep tumblr for fandom and this for personal? I'm nearly 40 now, how personal do I want to get on the internet?

Maybe use this for more long-form musings?

As always I look around fandom and wonder if there's anything new I could possibly bring to it.

Right, well, um, hello.

I haven't done the long-form journally stuff since moving to tumblr about four years ago. Hope I haven't lost the knack...
