My Ridiculously Photogenic Children, Again

It’s been a while since I posted anything and things have been pretty crazy, as always. I’m actually starting to get some proper writing done and am feeling good about it, hopefully I’ll have something to share soon but in the meantime I’m just starting a whole lot of draft blog posts and leaving them to ferment.

We sent Wump and Toop off to mommo‘s for their annual photoshoot with Super Otus Oy yesterday, and the pics are here. Here’s a little highlight reel.

Giving off a kind of a Shining vibe, but more goony than creepy. Toop’s face here is one she calls the “Happy Apple”, because it looks like a bath toy of the same name. It’s eerie as fuck.

Fun with trampoline.

Toop at maximum Toop…

…and Wump and maximum Wump. This needs to be a political campaign poster. Vote Wump for President of Earth. You think she can do worse than we already are?

That’s it for now, hope it brightened your day at least 3% as much as it brightened mine.

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.

  1. So freaking adorable! I’m jealous. Mine are all gangly and pimply now, may you be spared from that fate!

    I guess the reason they are so photogenic is because they are so cute.
