Getting to see [livejournal.com profile] matgb's appearance on Blockbusters from 16 years ago? PRICELESS!

Yeah, the journey down here was a bit of a mare, although a very sweet taxi driver and the Costa Coffee guy on Wakefield station (If you're in the Wakefield area, he's on platform one, he's called Bob, and he has very lovely long dark hair and will be 21 soon) were very lovely and made it bearable.

Mat got here about four hours after I did, which was frankly terrifying, but Shrubby had fun playing with his nephew, and I chatted about cars with his dad, and got a grilling from his mum about how he was eating, and it all seems fine. His mum had a bit of a squee over me this morning because I was reading the Torygraph (the only periodical available with my breakfast) and ranting between mouthfuls of Fruit 'n' Fibre about one of the articles in it and she said "Awww, you sound JUST like Matthew!" LOL

Anyway, yes, last night's entertainment consisted of watching the video of Mat's appearance on Blockbusters in 1993, and it was THE CUTEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. The video is definitely going to be purloined and taken to Lords and put onto DVD... >:D It's really amazing to me, seeing a seventeen year old version of the man I have come to love; all the little mannerisms were there, the hair was getting to be there... There was much squee, and some ribbing and giggling. And once I've got it transferred to DVD, I can screencap it >:D Mwahahahahahahahahaha

Anyhoo, he's going to be wanting the computer back now, so I shall disappear back into the ether. I'm going to be taking Shrubby on a steam train this afternoon. YAY!

TTYL, sweet F-list.
