Hier ist my new sunhat! The final version. It's marvelously effective, light, has a sturdy 5" brim with dark material underneath to shade the sun, vents in the top bits, great little size-adjusty thing on the crown, fits (this is amazing, I have a huge head; got a big size), and altogether makes me look entirely too much like ELEANOR LAVISH. Ungh. Or perhaps a jolly turn of the century colonial girl guide leader with a mad pash for a fellow lecturer. BLECH. It's just so not the remotest bit glam or cute or sleek or soignee or anything. Although the point is..I'm not sure I care, if the hat works. But just notin.

Jean Johnson...BELATED AND YOOGE HAPPY BIRTHDAYS TO YOU! Also Melissa Front. Just sayin.

Alarming possibilty of aging: that the size of one's brain is something of a zero-sum proposition. Just...sayin. Fairly sure some info got pushed out to make room for a lot of ridiculous crap I don't need. And it goes on.

Ok--I need one of those hats with this goddamned relentless CA sun! Where did you find it? Lawd knows I can't find one here in fake tit land to fit my huge melon. Help a sister out!
