Am I a Jedi in disguise?

Being on holidays (paternity leave?) at the moment, I have taken the opportunity to not bother shaving. In fact, I have more facial hair than I have ever had...

I do take exception to my father's unkind suggestion that it is just bum-fluff, but it really would be an exaggeration to call it a "beard".

A funny thing though... A couple of my sons' friends at school, Star Wars nerds all, have suggested that I look like Qui-Gon Jinn. You be the judge...

I can see what they are thinking, but it is a bit of a stretch. I've got a lot less there, and a lot more of it is grey! In fact the best thing about not being clean-shaven is that I am a lot less likely to get "you're too young to have seven children!"

So I think I will keep my light sabre in the cupboard and remember that I would much rather be Dr Who anyway!

That's my boy!

Lost some posts...

My webhost had a major power malfunction and lost a lot of machines earlier in the week.
Once I got things up and running again (after having to re-add the correct user to the MySQL database with this blog on it) it seems I have lost January's posts. Luckily there wasn't a lot of important stuff there (a couple of reviews IIRC) and January was a slow post month.
