Performance Review

Day 53. 81 pages, 40,066 words.                       

Today I have my first annual performance review. Yes, as of next week I will have been at my dear new workplace a whole year already.

It really has just flown by, but I guess time has a habit of doing that, when you’re busy as a worn-out and mildly-offensive stereotype in a hackneyed simile. Plus I’ve been enjoying myself. I’ll always remember my first week at the new job as the week my balls were about twice the size they were meant to be and throbbing with agony due to a post-vasectomy infection.

Good times.

Anyway, I’ll continue this after my review.

Yep, that went well. I love a performance review that’s booked for an hour but is done in quarter of an hour. I even managed to raise a few language validation and QA suggestions. Not bad for a first round.

Right, lunchtime.

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.
