I Really Have Missed You

I suppose it's my long tradition of keeping a diary that leaves me to feel incomplete without one. I didn't really notice that feeling until I reopened my blog last night. But as soon as I had, I felt complete once again. It's as if talking to you, Dear Constant Reader, has become part of my conscious.

Why did I stop? For some very sensible reasons. New prospects, new employment in particular, meant I felt the need to hide my diary to be discreet. And Jim, I think, prefers me not to keep a blog for his own reasons (very sensible one's they are). But really all I was doing was hiding who I am from the world, in order to perpetuate a lie: that I am not me. Just to sell myself. And I think that goes against several of my "Prime Directives". So, yes, I'm back... for another couple of years until I have another hissy fit or change of mind. However, you needn't worry too much. I'm always back for more at some point.

To cement my return... here's a whole new (for me and probably you) pic of Charles Dera!

So, other than Charles Dera, what are my current obsessions? Politics, I'm afraid, has reared it's ugly head in my life again since I was last around. And, in related obsessions, marriage equality. All this can be seen at my other place. Otherwise, I'm too busy worrying about getting a job to bother with much else. Once the money starts flowing in again, I'll return to more geeky (i.e. expensive) pursuits.

And I must get myself a social life, reconnect with friends, make new one's etc. But I just can't seem to be bothered until I have some money to make it worthwhile to them to spend time with me (there's only so much sitting round my house they can put up with, even if Jim has constructed us a "games room", i.e. putting a telly and his games consoles into one room with a cheap sofa bed). Oh didn't I say... we have plenty of rooms! It's like a palace, just set above a shop that has lots of "Break free of porn" posters all over it. :)

Anyway I feel much better having you back again... fingers crossed for some adventures soonish.
