Bath Hat
At the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel this weekend, the toiletries had pretentious names. The "hair wash" was shampoo, the "boot buffer" was the shoe-shine sponge, and the "bath hat" was the shower cap. That made me think of ass-hat, a term for someone with their head up their butt (i.e., wearing their ass as a hat).

For those who are sufficiently circumflexible, "hat" also means symbols with diacritical marks (like "Â"), as used for normalized vectors:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_vector
A unit vector is often denoted by a lowercase letter with a superscribed caret or "hat", like this: {\hat{\imath}} (pronounced "i-hat").

I assume a bath hat is what you need if you've got your head up your tub:



As always, I enjoyed seeing everyone. There were only minor weather-related delays for us flying home. Other folks at the airport were delayed even longer, so we got a chance for a bit more chatting.

Oh, and I'm pleased to see a growing assortment of electrical outlets and USB charging stations in the airports.

To go with your bath-hat, you need the bath-bra (<bath|) and the bath-ket (|bath>). But does it form an orthogonal basin?

Is that why I hardly saw you in Cleveland? Cause you were in your room studying the toiletries? Bummer. Hope to see more of you in S.F. in September.

I was trying to dance at least once at every level. I never did get myself onto Eastern Time, though, so the mornings were mostly sleeping late and getting breakfast.

Possibly the time-change will be easier next year, when I just need to add an "n" to Easter Time. ;-)

It was nice to dance with you at convention. I will see you in September at the A & C weekend.
