And we’re off

Day 2. 0 pages, 0 words.

Off and running. With the week, that is. Tuesday and all’s well. Writing something new, so taking it slow. I’m still not sure how the word-count thing is going to work, just ignore it for now.

Hit the Hellsinki Steam bar last night to catch up with Mr. dreameling and have a pint. Although I didn’t have a pint, i had a small tumbler of It Came From The Sea, for €12. Very tasty drink, but I’m pretty sure Bar Äijä’s can do better. Lots of work went into it, on account of the trainee barman doing the work.

It was fun, and the tiny drink allowed me to drive home.

Back to it. Nothing to see here.

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.

    It may have been the most time I’ve ever seen someone put into making a drink. (Well, The Paz may have actually spent longer on one of his special drinks at Bar Äijä’s.)
