Thank you, The Internet

Day 74. 31 pages, 13,068 words.

Crud. I’ve got nothing. Just a word count today, for interests’ sake. With any luck tonight will be a write night for me, while Mrs. Hatboy enjoys her regular roleplay session and the kids go to bed without too much hassle.

Oh, speaking of Mrs. Hatboy and the kids (thank you, The Internet, for always having something interesting to offer me when I flail), I did enjoy this:

Yeah, it’s long. And Minsk has a lot of videos. 539, as of this blog post!

That’s Mrs. Hatboy as Werehag, and Wump as (the very shy and seldom-talking) Pikachu. Yes, my little girl has an online handle she actually made up for herself. I couldn’t be more proud.

And yes, I’ve actually been watching these Skyrim episodes, on the television while I still can. But I’m not about to open the whole “why soon I won’t be able to anymore” can of worms. Not today. No time.

Worth a watch if you have time or a listen if you have the opportunity. Minsk does some good videos and deserves subscribers. In this episode, they actually encounter a Dragon at last and have a pretty hilarious fight with it.

I think I’ve actually watched more Skyrim than I have played.

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 hadn’t remembered posting part 1 and part 2 of this video adventure almost a year ago, but I did. I did that.
