Family weekend

Day 20. 51 pages, 23,853 words.

As mentioned, today for some convoluted reason we are having an eat-off in Bar Äijä’s. But first, Jumbo for supplies, playground, and so on. Then swimming class.

Rich full day.

We finished watching Stranger Things, and started watching Galavant last night. Two very different shows that are both very good. Review as time permits.

Here’s a picture Wump drew in school, of her nuclear family. Gotta say, she nailed it.

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.

    I can’t get in to Stranger Things, not sure what’s going on but the wife and I both think it’s meh. And you know I loved shows like the X-Files and Fringe, etc. And the Goonies movie, of course. I just am not seeing what others are seeing in the show.
