Some happy news

Tonight I had a little of my faith in humanity restored when I found out about #TargetTori. Go ahead and google that, but the long story short version is a poor long-suffering retail manager was given a hard time by a Twitter douchebag, and Twitter rounded on him like a pack of rabid tribbles.


It was glorious. Glorious like Target Tori’s Retail Face.

So that brightened my day.

In further good news, I just finished Part One of The Last Days of Earth and finally feel like I’m getting my groove back. All while Tales of the Always Night is also continuing to take shape nicely. So that’s grand.

I don’t know if I’ll go back to metrics and graphs, but Part One has weighed in at 103 pages, 49,689 words. Part Two is already at 41 pages, 16,303 words, mainly notes I already had in place. Gonna be fun!

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.

    This is grand. What a fucking douchebag, of course that toothbrush isn’t one fucking cent.

    In a related story, we got a really nice oscillating, filtering room fan (tower, black) at Target for 1 cent about 15 years ago, maybe even more like 16 or 17. Pricing glitch, we didn’t notice until we got home. Still have the fan today, it’s very useful. Or maybe we just can’t let ourselves give up that awesome deal we got XD

      The system works! And nobody is punished except the feudal lords who own the chain.

        Yup! I forgot to mention it was supposed to be $60! $59.99 because those are the tax games we play, but I just round up prices like that. So it cost me like 0.02% of the list price XD
