Another Busy Saturday

Another pre-write. Nothing much planned for today, although we do have a crowded schedule. If the weather is good I will mow the lawn. Wump has swimming class. I’m vaguely considering joining her for the session, and actually taking my goggles and swimming some proper laps for a change, or maybe just taking Toop along as well.

Also considering an early rise and writing session, but I guess it depends. I didn’t get a write night this week, but it was my own idea really. Bunch of other stuff to do in the evenings and was just too blasted out after work each day.

Might also just sleep in like a giant lazy bastard.

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.

    Follow-up: It was the lazy bastard option, no writing for me again. Going to do the lawn now.

      Life’s pretty full.

      Oh, Mrs. Hatboy went to a class reunion last night and I sat up with the girls and watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Still wept.

        Sir, I believe you have forgotten I do not go to Guardians of the Galaxy. It is a silly place XD

      • stchucky says:

        You’d think that would affect what we did last night, but it didn’t! We’re just weird.

      • aaronthepatriot says:

        Nah, I would never think that! Never let someone else’s pooh-poohing something ruin it for you, I say!

        Plus in all seriousness I’ve already admitted the vast majority of homo sapiens sapiens believe I am completely bonkers when it comes to my opinion of GotG. I freely admit such once more.
