Today: 20171106

Today I did some random manual editing, attended a couple of meetings, replied to a bunch of e-mails and took part in some training at work. The weather was mildly crappy but public transport to the office wasn’t terrible. I didn’t get to write very much because I got bus-sick.

I ate leftovers and drank two cups of coffee.

Online, USians were arguing the relative merits of gun control vs. thoughts and prayers, and the impossibility of ever discussing something the other side doesn’t want to politicise “so soon” after the tragedy of yet another mass shooting.

I got in a snark-off with a friend that resulted in a flurry of in-jokes that will make sense to approximately two people in the entire world.

And I timestamped this post because it’s really the most efficient way of differentiating it frrom every other day when basically the same shit happened.

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.

    Can we take my “Fascinating” and Spock eyebrow as a given?

    I saw that some of our politicians are, predictably, now saying we need guns in churches. SMH.

    But you know what? Have at it, hoss. You won’t find me, my wife, or my kids in church. Probably ever. So sure, this one I can let pass without outrage.

    Not that it isn’t STUPID. I just DGAF.
