Thanks Is Given

As usual, we had a family dinner at my uncle's place in Sacramento. I made an apple crisp, which was well-received. There was turkey and potatoes and rolls and two kinds of stuffing. No pumpkin pie, alas, which I will have to rectify at some point this weekend. I get along reasonably well with my family, so visits are not usually too stress-inducing.

Also, I discovered that my brother D is a brony, which on reflection ought not to be too surprising -- he's really into a lot of other animated shows, so it makes sense that My Little Pony would be in the mix. I'm more amused by it than anything, and also by the utter confusion of the elder generation that adult men have flocked in droves to a cartoon targeted at elementary school girls.

I hope that all of you are having an excellent holiday, or simply a fine Thursday, wherever you may be.

My boyfriend's eldest son (18) is a major brony, in that MLP is his fandom. He writes fanfic and draws and RPs and stuff, which has given us some nerdy fandomy stuff to bond over. Boyfriend calls himself a brony and wears the shirts, but he's not really all that into it.

The whole movement is just fascinating to me. :D

I don't really know how active my brother is, but he's talking about trying to attend the con in SF next April. I think half the reason he brought it up, is that he was angling for help with the costs. :) I don't mind, it makes it much easier to get him a Christmas gift!

He doesn't know anything about my own fandom life, as far as I know. I guess I wouldn't mind him knowing, but since he has no social filter I'm sure he'd say something to my parents, and that is a line I am not willing to cross. >.>
