ResQ Club

Day 97. 68 pages, 30,301 words.

I think today is Canada Day, at least there are some celebrations going on around the subject in Helsinki. There may or may not also be a Pride March happening. I guess what we’ll be doing depends on the weather. I’m pre-writing this again, so I don’t know.

In the evening, though, off to the Woolshed for dinner. Should be nice.

Speaking of nice, I recently installed and test-used the ResQ app. Using this app, you can find participating restaurants in your area, see what sort of food they’re planning on getting rid of because they made too many servings, and buy it at a massive discount. You pay right there in the app, then go and pick up the food at the agreed time.

I tested it on a roast beef sandwich and it seemed to work nicely. Excellent stuff.

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.
