Last month my mom got me a new hat (I think it’s a part of her ongoing war to get me to stop wearing baseball caps). I have a cute driving cap that my partner picked up for me in France, but it’s black and while I love it, it doesn’t go with everything. So while we were at a store, we started playing ‘try on the hat!’ We put on stupid ones and funny ones and ones that didn’t fit, until I plopped this brown one on my head. It was a collective ‘Oh!’ moment for all three of us. Both women in my life love it, and that’s all I really need. Bam. The hat was on and sold.
Monday I bit the bullet and we took a dozen pictures of me and the hat (with and without glasses), looking coy, looking bland, etc etc. Finally, the second to last photo was the perfect one. I played around with it, but didn’t end up doing more customization than making it square and shrinking it to a better size. Tuesday, I uploaded it to Gravatar, three forums, and made a new favicon for this site. Yes, that’s my little head up there. It’s ‘mostly’ recognizable. Kind of. And yes, I totally wanted it to pay homage to The Question.
