To Infinity And Beyond

Day 110. 99 pages, 44,204 words.

Ugh, the day completely got away from me, and now I have to head for home – with a little detour to ResQ some dinner for myself and the girls. Still, it’s super-quiet at work today, almost everyone is on summer holiday and everything is on hold.

Today I’ve mostly been distracting myself in my spare time by reading Wikipedia articles about the Ultimate Fate of the Universe some 102500 years from now. I love that stuff. Iron stars, every galaxy vanishing from the observable universe of every other galaxy by crossing the relativistic horizon, the Degenerate Era…

Mmm. Degenerate Era.

Next step is working all this into my urverse theory and ultimate timeline.

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.
