Made the coffee

Managed to get woken up by my bag half an hour before my alarm went off this morning. Which was actually good. I’d set the alarm a little earlier than usual and wasn’t confident about getting up. Usually when I set the alarm earlier it just means I’m giving myself a snooze hour.

And no, incidentally, I’m not talking about the days I set my alarm super early to go and write. Haven’t done that much lately. Trying to get over this cold and it’s not easy (he says in tones of wild revelation) if you only sleep 4 hours a night.

Anyway, chipping away at the last couple of chapters of editing work, hoping to publish this week and get on with something else.

Wound up getting to work nice and early which is good, because I’ve been getting in at 09:00am-09:30am and leaving at ~16:00pm, which has been eating my overtime hours because that’s not how working full-time works.

And I got to make the coffee. Hence the name of today’s uninspired blog post.

Ugh. Busy week.

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.
