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:

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.

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