Day 8. 55 pages, 26,065 words.
Sorry, I ran out of time and energy again for my weekend posts and today is election day over here in Finland, so Mrs. Hatboy will be working at the election booths, and I’m just going to be sitting around at home and waiting for what I currently hope will be good news but … well, I’m not super optimistic at this point, let’s put it that way.
Actually I probably won’t be sitting around that much. It’s also the weekend for traditional Finnish Easter Witchery, so I’ll be helping get Wump and Toop all dressed up and heading out to chant at people’s doors and exchange decorative pussy willow blessing-branches for candy and chocolate.
That was the folksiest thing I think I’ve ever typed.
Well, anyway, here’s a devastatingly sad and deeply upsetting musical animation.
As soon as I saw it was made to the tune of I Dreamed a Dream I knew I wouldn’t be able to get through it dry-eyed, and that was before you throw in the fact that it’s about animals being tortured and killed. Jesus Christ, I’m so sorry.
Sat and watched it with Wump, who simply said “we’re monsters.”
Yes. Yes we are.
