A Brief History of Me

Day 16. No writing. And WordPress for Windows Phone ate my ready-to-post draft without a fucking trace so here I fucking am trying to recreate this fucking post before my morning Goddamn coffee. Fuck you, WordPress.

So, anyway, tomorrow I am off to visit a school in Helsinki, where I will be giving a little presentation to the 8th grade kids about being an Australian migrant in Finland and a little bit about my land of origin.

This is the presentation I’ve decided on.

The end.

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. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    I found it in the end, WordPress had posted it back in time on the 1st of April because apparently that is possible and naturally WordPress has never dealt with the last day of a month ending and the first day of the next month beginning before. I repeat, fuck you, WordPress. But it’s okay now, because I fixed your mess.

  2. You misspelled “pääkatkaisin” — on purpose?

    Yes I’m *that* person.

    Since we are pointing out errors, you said

    ” about being an Australia migrant”

    that is all.

  4. Since this is starting to feel like Spellchecking Bitches United convention, I wanted to add something different. I laughed out loud at the brilliance of the presentation. (Though I don’t know why you didn’t mention the drop bear you had for a pet and how they didn’t let you bring him over because of the crazy import/export laws.)

    Wow, nice work! I didn’t remember, or know, about the deportation. Either you were far too honest, turning yourself in, or Finland’s immigration department is a hell of a lot more effective (and perhaps heartless and just plain incorrect) than ours is. That seems remarkably efficient, in the bad way.
