I started taking the pictures, but reality intervened, in that irritating way it so often does.
Reality Check #1: Did you know that it is actually incredibly difficult to take a decent picture of yourself wearing a hat, at least in such a way that anyone looking at the picture could actually tell that it was meant to represent a hat, and not just some wacky person who likes to take pictures of herself in the mirror? Well, I guess if you were to think about it you'd quickly recognize the futility of it. But not me. I went ahead and tried, and only realized the awful truth when I started transferring the pictures from the camera to the computer.

Adrian, bless him, installed the GIMP on my laptop a while ago, and trained me in its use (much as one might train a chimpanzee to pretend to bang away at a typewriter--he doesn't know what he's doing, but it looks cute, and who knows, he might come up with a few legible words), and it's the only way I know to make my photos blog-friendly, because face it, I am a techno-moron.
Anyway, my laptop is out of action, and this one won't do what I tell it to do, no matter how loudly and clearly I speak to it, so to hell with it. No pictures today.
Reality Check #3: I am supposed to be working today anyway. So if anyone from work happens to read this, I want you to know that I composed this post last night, and am only posting it now to make it look like it's current. I'm not slacking off or proroguing or anything witless like that. Honest. Here I go back to work now. Look, see? This is me, working.
