Weekend

Day 19. 51 pages, 23,853 words.

This has been a good week. I’ve had a lot of actual day-job work to do and it’s been rough, but I’ve learned a lot and really felt like I was getting to know the documents and products. And since I’m not a subcontractor anymore, I don’t need to worry about having to dump all this stuff and re-learn new things in six months’ time, which is great.

Today marks the end of my four months’ trial period at my job. Which means that not only did I make everyone gingerbread cookies today, I may begin sending some of them in the direction of this blog, and making friends with those of them who are on Facebook.

Poor things.

Busy weekend coming up. Apparently Bar Äijä’s is hosting an eating challenge[1]. I expect there will be photographs later.

[1] Funny the things that happen when you’re only half-paying attention to your phone chat window.

And, of course, more swimming lessons with Wump. Her first was last Saturday, and she learned to float and then paddle, all of it without the floaties. So, good start.

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/
