Friday, Stardate Half-Past One Point Three

Ugh, what a week. I’m not allowed to tell you about it because it’s totally classified and secret but you should thank me for that because if I could tell you about it, and did tell you about it, it would bore you so much you would probably die from it and the boredom would cling to your corpse and then your whole funeral would be boring.
But anyway, the smelly carcass of this week is dragging itself towards a glorious ending, an ending with doughnuts and coffee and an early departure from the office.
We’re going to see the new Star Trek movie on Saturday. We’ve seen it already, but we’re going to see it again just because we can, and because it was so freaking cool. Consider it a warmup for Transformers 2 and Terminator 4.


About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
